The slightly-refreshed 2019 Honda Civic, which benefits from a revised design, a new Sport trim, and some new safety features, starts at $20,345 (including the $895 destination fee). That's an increase of $510 over last year's model, but the extra funds are well worth it, as the brand's Honda Sensing suite of safety features is now standard throughout the entire lineup.

Previously, Honda Sensing was a $1,000 option as long as you chose the available Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). With the safety suite as standard equipment, the 2019 model aims to be a better value proposition despite the mild increase in MSRP.

Honda Sensing brings things like adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow capability, a collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams.

The MSRP of $20,345 gets you a 2019 Civic LX sedan with manual transmission. If you want a CVT, that raises the price by $800. The two-door coupe variant is only available with the CVT and starts at $21,545.

The new Sport trim starts at $22,045 for a six-speed manual sedan, and $23,145 for the two-door with CVT. The EX gets you access to a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and starts at $24,295 for the sedan with CVT. The Coupe is $200 cheaper, with a price of $24,095.

The EX-L is only available as a sedan and costs $25,495. The range-topping Touring costs $28,195 for the sedan, while the coupe is priced at $27,745.

With just a modest increase in pricing and more standard safety features than before, the 2019 Civic is an even better option in the compact segment. While it's more expensive than competitors like the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Cruze, and Mazda3, it has a good list of standard features that now includes the latest safety technology. In the past, features like these have typically necessitated pricey option packages, or a requirement to buy the most expensive trim.

The 2019 Civic will go on sale on October 10. Specifications for the Civic Hatchback, Si, and Type R will come out later this year.
