Honda Sensing, the automaker's suite of active and passive safety systems, is now standard on every Civic trim from LX to Touring. Cumulative sales of the current generation Civic will surpass one million units this year. The front gets a new paint black upper fascia wing, atop a restyled lower fascia.

Honda says this engine has been "enhanced" (thanks largely to new friction reduction measures), adding that it has incorporated more insulating material in key areas round the vehicle. An adjustment to the front and rear fascias pass for a visual refresh, but only the most devout Civic fans will likely notice. The look now is one-piece instead of three, and there's a full-width front splitter and chrome side pod accents, too.

As for the tech, there's now Honda Sensing standard across the board. The worldwide variants get Honda Sensing safety suite standard which includes automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. Adaptive cruise control will also be included.

Puel: Leicester City Didn’t Deserve Defeat To Man United
When asked if he was happy for City to be favourites, he said: "Since nine years I live with that situation, it's no problem". The Foxes were without Algerian star man Riyad Mahrez who joined the champions in the summer.

Moving on to the Civic Sport, the newcomer is slotted above the LX and below the EX. A blacked-out front fascia, rear decklid spoiler on the Sedan model, and a splitter-style rear bumper pair with 18-inch black alloy wheels to complete the aggressive look, but the Sport versions of the Sedan and Coupe receive a bit less performance than the Hatchback version.

No word on how much the 2019 Civic Sport will cost, at this stage. The 2019 Civic Sport uses a 2.0-liter inline-4 that makes 158 horsepower teamed to a 6-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission.

There are no changes to the interior save for an updated 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a volume button.
