First introduced in the fall of 2015 in Sedan and later Coupe form, the 10th-generation Civic lineup includes the European-inspired Hatchback, the performance-focused Civic Si Coupe and Si Sedan and the world's fastest front-wheel-drive vehicle, the Civic Type R. Cumulative sales of the 10th-generation Civic will surpass 1 million units this year.

A new Sport trim will debut to slot between the EX and Touring, offering customers a value buy with a bit more of an athletic aesthetic.

The Honda Civic has always been one of the best-selling cars in America, and for good reason. The 2019 Sedan and Coupe turn it up a notch with evolutionary styling updates, front and rear.

The Civic can be had with restyled halogen or LED headlights and a chrome accent on the lower rear bumper for the sedan.

But he added that the conduct of Tesla and its chief executive Mr Musk had caused volatility and cost short-sellers hundreds of millions of dollars.

For the USA, the 2019 model year Civic sedan and coupe models gain a standard piano black winged grille, and revised halogen and LED headlight units. The finishing touch? That'd be the 18-inch 10-spoke "Berlina Black" alloy wheels.

Wearing some very slight styling changes, the Civic's controversial-but-popular design continues for 2019 and beyond.

Launch of the Civic facelift is slated to take place in the first half of 2019, and it is expected to be priced between Rs 16-20 lakh, where it'll go on to rival the likes of the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla Altis and Hyundai Elantra. It is also uncertain whether the new Sport trim will be offered locally.

A 2.0-liter engine connected to a CVT or six-speed manual transmission makes sure the Civic Sport drives as well as it looks. Inside, the Sport variants receive a infotainment system with Android Auto and AppleCarPlay. 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.
