New Honda 2019 Honda Civic Coupe for Sale in Lincoln, RI
If there’s one thing the 2019 Honda Civic Coupe can count on, it’s excellent sales. After all, this affordable and great-looking two-door has been popular year after year with good reason. This model year it’s back with an upgraded fascia, improvements to the interior controls, and some additions to the base equipment – most notably, the Honda Sensing active safety technology package is now included on every trim. Besides its leading fuel economy, excellent resale value, and healthy list of standard equipment, it’s fun to drive and comes with above-average standard features, as outlined below.
Safety and Technology Features
The four trim levels for the ’19 Honda Civic Coupe are the LX, Sport, EX, and Touring. While stickshifts are going the way of the pterodactyl with most automakers, the Sport trim can still be ordered with a manual transmission. There is another two-door Civic model, the high-performance Civic Coupe Si, which is made only with a manual transmission. Since the Si’s specs are distinct from those of the regular Civic Coupe discussed here, it’s treated as a separate model.
The two lowest Civic Coupe trims, the LX and Sport, are powered by a 158 horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission standard on the LX and available on the Sport (which lives up to its name by coming standard with a six-speed manual transmission). The two higher trim levels get a 174 hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired with the CVT, which is noted to perform better than other CVTs thanks to Honda’s gear-and-pulley system’s ability to optimize each shift change.
Standard equipment on the base LX includes the aforementioned Honda Sensing active safety suite (more on that below), a backup camera, automatic climate control, a capless fuel filler, a center storage console with sliding armrest, Bluetooth HandsFree phone capability and streaming audio, and a USB port. The Sport trim adds push-button start, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HondaLink technology, and some track-inspired elements: paddle shifters, sport pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, and a rear spoiler.
Those who choose the EX trim will get a one-touch power moonroof, Honda LaneWatch and, remote start, heated side mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, an upgraded audio system with ten speakers, and SiriusXM satellite radio. At the top of the heap, the loaded Touring trim delivers Honda’s voice-activated satellite-linked navigation system, 18-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and LED auto-on/off headlights.
Comfort and Utility
Now standard on every ’19 Civic Coupe, the Honda Sensing suite of state-of-the-art active safety technologies helps to make collisions less likely through driver warnings and other mitigating factors. It consists of lane keep assist, smart cruise control, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and auto emergency braking. Stability control and a rearview camera are also standard. Thanks to this package and the accompanying passive safety features (air bags, etc.), this latest Civic Coupe is expected to earn the same top safety ratings that the 2018 version did.
