If you are looking for a compact car, you should put the 2019 Honda Civic on your shopping list. The car seems to defy logic as SUVs and Crossovers have dominated sales in the U.S. market. The 2019 Honda Civic remains the best-selling compact car in America, and the Japanese automaker is doing a lot right with the sedan and hatchback models. Check out if it’s even a car you should consider and what model might be the best fit for you before you head to the dealer.

What’s new

The Honda Civic lineup received a refresh for the 2019 model change and it gets exterior styling tweaks, new standard features, and the Sport moniker gets added to the coupe and sedan. Torque News reported on what is possibly the most important update: the radio knob and hard buttons are added to the touchscreen, a previous source of frustration. Honda Civic sedan, coupe, and hatchback get new front-end designs and new standard driver-assistance equipment called Honda Sensing.

It’s no surprise that the Civic is a top-seller for the brand. The 2019 Civic lineup is vast and there’s likely a model and price point for you. Civic is offered in many trims and comes in LX sedan: $20,345, Sport sedan: $22,045, EX coupe: $24,095, Touring coupe: $27,745, and Sport Touring hatchback: $29,645. You can also get a sport-tuned Si Coupe $25,930, and performance-tuned Type R hatchback $37,230.

Our favorite is the multitalented Si that is the perfect blend of performance, utility and sharper handling that ramps up the fun-to-drive meter. You can also get it with a 6-speed manual gearbox versus the optional CVT. It’s one of only eight models left in America that only comes equipped with a manual rower. It also comes with a more powerful 1.5-liter turbo engine.

Civic comes with solid crash-test scores if you are looking for a small car that’s also safe. The compact Honda comes standard with automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist. Warranty and maintenance coverage is good, but not as extensive as Hyundai. Honda's limited warranty covers 3 years or 36,000 miles, powertrain warranty covers 5 years or 60,000 miles, and complimentary scheduled maintenance is not available.

Honda has a convenient online configurator so you can build your Civic without having to talk to a car salesman. This gives you the opportunity to check the available features and options you can add and see if it fits your budget. Then when you do go in to drive a car, you already know the pricing and options ahead of time.

Overall, the 2019 Honda Civic is a compact car that should be on your shopping list. Do your homework, and you should find the model that best fits your lifestyle.
