2020 Honda Civic Gets Better With Age, Now Has Standard LEDs and New Alloys

Try as you might, there’s no passing by a current Honda Civic without at least giving it a quick glance. The Japanese have outdone themselves when they introduced the new generation, and the car is already seen as the best one its family ever produced. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement.

For the European market, the Civic is a constant best seller in the Honda lineup. Each year for as long as we can remember, the car sold around 40,000 units every 12 months. So giving the model a nip’n’tuck every once in a while is not a bad idea.

For the year that is about to start, Honda announced a series of visual and comfort upgrades for the Civic, meant to make it even more appealing. Changes are to be seen on the outside, on the inside and when it comes to the car’s infotainment system.

For the exterior, the Japanese cooked up a new, symmetrical lower front grille, new air-intakes and, for the first time, will offer the Civic with LED headlights as standard. Additionally, two new wheel designs in 16- and 17-inches have been announced, as well as a brand new color, called Obsidian Blue.

Inside, the main changes are the addition of new materials, but also an updated infotainment system. Going somewhat against the trend, Honda fitted inside the revised Civic physical buttons and dials, at the request of customers, it says.

Engine-wise, nothing will change, and the Civic will continue to be offered with units linked to either CVT or six-speed manual transmissions, developing between 120 PS and 180 ps.

The carmaker did not say whether the improvements made to the range will be translated into new numbers on the price tag for the next model year.

Full details on the modifications made can be found in the press release section below.
