The new model was first showcased in India at the Auto Expo 2018 but its facelift was introduced at a later stage and the same will make it to the dealerships. The new Civic will be sharper and futuristic compared to the previous generation model and hence, it will appeal more to the youngsters and people that prioritize design over everything else.
2019 Honda Civic Engine
The previous generation Honda Civic lacked an option of a diesel engine and that was one of the reasons that lead to its retirement from India. However, the new 2019 Honda Civic will get power from a new 1.6-litre diesel engine that is expected to be the most fuel efficient in the segment. The engine is the same unit that powers the new CR-V. Apart from that, the new Civic is also likely to get a 1.8-litre petrol engine.
2019 Honda Civic Features
The new 2019 Honda Civic will come with some interesting features that will make it an irresistible pick in the segment. The car might feature automatic climate control along with a digital instrument cluster.

2019 Honda Civic Interiors
The new 2019 Honda Civic will get premium interiors and the cabin will be a quite likable place to be in. The interiors of the new Civic are based on a darker theme for a sportier appeal.
