Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

  • Up to $750 off (2019)
  • Lease: From $189 for 36 mo. (2019)
  • Finance: From 2.9% APR (2019, select states)

2020 Civic is here:

The 2019 Honda Civic, which gained Honda Sensing on all trims and a new Sport trim for the coupe and sedan models, is still available, and the 2020 Civic is arriving now. The 2019 Civic rolls on with most of the same deals. As for the 2020 Civic, Honda is likely holding off on offers until the current model sells out.

Offers listed here are available regionally through January 2, 2020. Assume all offers are available in Southern California unless noted otherwise. Keep it locked here for potential updates to the Honda Civic's promotional offerings around Black Friday.

Cash incentives remain:

Nationwide, buyers can get up to $500 in unadvertised incentives to help lower the 2019 Civic Sedan's MSRP. The Coupe gets a new $750 unadvertised incentive of its own in November. Dealers are not obliged to pass these savings to you and can keep them for additional profit, so shop around for the best offer. Buyers cannot combine this offer with the low APR deals below.

Those looking to lease the 2019 Civic can get another $600 to $1,200 in cash incentives, depending on the trim and body style. The highest incentives are on LX and hatchback models.

There are no such incentives yet on the 2020 Honda Civic.

Lease from $189/month:

You can lease a 2019 Civic LX Sedan from $189 for 36 months with $2,199 due at signing. The offer comes with an allowance of 12,000 miles per year and equates to an effective cost of $250 per month, which makes it a good value relative to its MSRP.

Buyers who prefer the Civic Coupe can get the same monthly payment on the 2.0 LX trim but with $2,399 due at signing ($200 reduction). This extra cash at signing pushes the effective monthly cost to $256 ($5 reduction), but it is still a good value relative to its MSRP.

See the table below for a more complete list of 2019 Civic lease offers.

2020 Honda Civic: Model Preview

Model Preview

The 10th-generation Honda Civic arrived to lots of fanfare in 2016 thanks to a sporty, more aggressive design. The 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback and Si models look to improve upon its success with an updated look, a more accessible manual transmission, performance upgrades, and more.

The basic design of the Civic will remain the same, but Honda confirmed refreshes for the 2020 Civic Hatchback and Si models. The 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback and Si models will receive a updated bumpers with a new body-color crossbars in the fog-light housing up front and faux air vents in the rear, an updated “wing” grille, blackout-treated headlights, and updated wheel designs. The Hatchback Sport Touring gain updated LED headlights. Specific to the Si models are LED fog lights and gloss-black surround on the rear bumper.

Inside, the 2020 Civic Hatchback gains additional sound-deadening material and dash trim that differentiates each trims: geometrical pattern on the Sport trim, painted pattern on the LX and EX, and brushed-black trim on the EX-L and Sport Touring trims. The EX Hatchback also receives a new standard eight-way power driver’s seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The Civic Si gains updated sport seats with red accents and red trim on the dash.

Honda hasn’t announced updates on the standard coupe and sedan models, but given they received refreshes in 2019, we expect them to remain the same.

Honda also shakes up the features inside the 2020 Civic Hatchback’s Sport trim, as it gets a standard 7-inch touchscreen, an eight-speaker audio system, and Apple CarPlay and Android audio. This will come in place of the super-basic 5-inch non-touchscreen four-speaker infotainment system that lacked Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

2020 Honda Civic

Under its hood, the Civic’s lineup of engines will remain the same. The base engine on the sedan and coupe remains a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and the optional powerplant in the hatchback remains a 174-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The Civic Si continues with a 205-hp version of the 1.5-liter engine, but it gets a 6% shorter final-drive ratio that results in improved acceleration. Also new in the powertrain department is an available six-speed manual transmission in the Civic Hatchback’s range-topping Sport Touring trim.

The current Honda Civic missed out on being an IIHS Top Safety Pick due to “Poor” headlight tests. Unless the updated LED headlights can improve upon that, we expect the same ratings from the 2020 Civic. The Civic also continues with its array of advanced safety equipment, including automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback and 2020 Honda Civic Si are available now, but there is no indication of when the 2020 Civic Sedan and Coupe will arrive.

Prices on the Civic Sedan and Coupe remain uncertain, but we don’t expect a big jump from the current MSRP range of $21,280 to $28,330. The 2020 Civic Hatchback’s MSRP ranges from $22,580 to $29,780, and the 2020 Civic S’s pricing ranges from $25,930 to $26,130 (destination fees included in all pricing).

The 2020 Honda Civic will compete with the Mazda 3, Nissan Sentra, and Toyota Corolla.
