Interior Entertainment Features
The cabin of the 2019 Honda Civic comes equipped with a variety of sophisticated features. The vehicle comes standard with a 5-inch Color LCD Screen that displays your current audio entertainment from the radio, the USB or auxiliary-connected media device, or even the phone that’s paired with the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® for phone calls, or for audio streaming. The Civic even features speed-sensitive volume control, which automatically raises the audio levels when the engine performance is loud.
This sedan offers a few options with its varying trim levels. Drivers can choose the 7-inch High-Resolution touchscreen display. These trim levels also add features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, which connect your phone to the touchscreen. These features can help you stay connected to your family and friends from the road, as well as get access to your media apps and your phone’s music storage to play through the vehicle’s sound system.
Honda Sensing® Technology
The 2019 Honda Civic comes standard with Honda Sensing®, which is a suite of driver-assisting technology features that utilize sensors to detect objects in your path while factoring in your speed. These features include Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System™, and Road Departure Mitigation System. This system also includes Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, which lets you set a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, which will be maintained over the set cruising speed to adapt to the flow of traffic without you having to disable the system and intervene.
Honda Civic Sport Specs & Features
The Honda Civic Sport trim is one of the most popular versions of this sleek and stylish sedan. While it retains the strong and efficient performance of the base trim, it adds a few new features and stylistic components that separate it from its previous iteration. While only the second of the Civic trims, the Sport adds a lot that will help you get more out of your travels.
To start, this trim certainly lives up to its name. It adds the 18-inch alloy wheels to highlight the vehicle’s performance. The interior includes the sport-tuned pedals to give the drivers more of a performance-based feel when driving the vehicle. Adding to the sport theme is the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The Civic Sport also adds the push-button start to make the beginning of your journey more convenient.
The Sport Civic trim adds a lot to the interior other than style. This trim includes the upgraded 7-inch touchscreen display with customizable settings. From this screen, the options expand and even include systems like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These features integrate your phone into the screen so you can easily access your apps, contacts, and media library from the road.
Another factor that adds some major convenience to this version of the Honda Civic is the inclusion of HondaLink®. This system is an app that you can download on your phone to give you remote access to your vehicle. From this app, you can easily schedule service, check your MPG range, and even locate your vehicle in a crowded parking lot. This app also offers additional services like remote start, along with lock and unlock.
The Civic Sport and its updates keep you connected. The vehicle includes the SMS Text Message Function. This feature not only displays your incoming texts on the 7-inch touchscreen, but it will also read your text messages aloud so you can receive important information. The system also offers some pre-set responses to send, to acknowledge that you got the message!
Other Honda Civic Trim Levels
Beyond the base trim level LX that comes with all the previously mentioned standard features and the stylish and athletic Sport, there are three other Honda Civic trim levels you can choose among. Here are a few highlights of the EX, EX-L, and Touring.
EX: The EX comes standard with the 1.5L turbo four-cylinder engine, which is ideal if you are looking for the additional power. It all features additional amenities inside for extra comfort and convenience like the dual-zone automatic climate control system, driver’s seat with eight-way power adjustment, and one-touch power moonroof.
EX-L: If you want the luxury of leather-trimmed seats, the Civic EX-L could be the trim level right for you. The HomeLink® Remote System is also added to the EX-L trim level. With this system, you can open your garage door, turn off and on your lights, and activate your home security system all from your car.
Touring: The last of the Honda Civic trim levels, the Touring comes with a range of technology and design features to give you a first-class ride. The sound system gets upgraded to the Premium Audio System that has 10 speakers placed throughout the 2019 Civic.
The Touring also features the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™. You’ll be able to control this system with your voice so you can get directions without having to take your focus off the road. It also has the ability to help you find the quickest route to your destination, no matter the time of day, with Honda HD Digital Traffic.
