What the Critics Say

The Civic Coupe is the fashion model of the lineup with dramatic character lines running the length of its body. It looks especially good in this year’s new Sport trim with its 18-inch alloy wheels and additional black accents.” — The Car Connection

The Civic rides like a bigger, more refined car. As in a German car, you feel road imperfections, but impacts are very well damped. Big undulations, especially midcorner, are handled with impeccable control and betray not one iota of float. The coupe feels fractionally firmer and sportier.” — Edmunds

What’s New for 2019

Drivers will notice numerous updates and changes to the Honda Civic Coupe for 2019. To keep drivers safer than ever before, Honda Sensing® is now included on every Civic Coupe as standard equipment.

Proven Performance

From economical to exciting, two distinctive powertrain options help make your commute more memorable with the 2019 Civic Coupe. Choose the LX or Sport trim levels and you’ll receive an economical 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission and an optional CVT helps the Civic Coupe provide outstanding fuel economy. Opt for the EX or Touring and you will enjoy a potent 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with a peak output of 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. This impressive engine features some of the best fuel economy in its class, offering maximum ratings of 31 city / 40 highway** on EX models. Nimble handling and a sport-focused character are only two reasons why the Civic Coupe has remained a popular choice for decades. This same spirit is infused into the new Civic Coupe Sport which features stylish 18-inch wheels, exclusive shock absorbers, stiffer front stabilizer bar, and rear lower control arms.
