2020 Honda Civic facelift revealed

A refresh for the 10th-generation Honda Civic for 2020 includes styling updates and more technology

The Honda Civic has been updated for 2020 with styling tweaks, new technology, material upgrades inside and more standard equipment. Customers will be able to order the facelifted Civic from December and first deliveries will begin in January.

The facelifted Civic has redesigned fog light surrounds, new LED running lights and full LED headlights that are standard on all trim levels. The alloy wheels are new too, with fresh designs for the 16-inch size on the entry-level model and ‘Shark Grey’ 17-inch alloys for the rest of the range.

Honda has updated the interior with new textured interior panels. Top-of-the-range models are fitted with eight-way electrically adjustable driver’s seats. Honda has also simplified the controls for the infotainment and climate control systems with physical buttons and dials, after owner feedback.

The engine range remains unchanged, so the entry-level choice is a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit, paired with either a manual six-speed gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. It develops 124bhp and claims fuel economy of 49.6mpg with CO2 emissions of 107g/km.

A turbocharged 180bhp 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit, available on the mid-spec Sport and Sport Plus trim levels is only available with a manual six-speed gearbox. It claims 46.3mpg and its CO2 emissions are rated at 128g/km.

The only diesel on offer is the 118bhp 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, which produces 300Nm. It can be paired with a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The diesel’s fuel economy stands at 62.8mpg and it claims 90g/km in CO2 emissions.
