2020 Honda Civic Sport Line turns on the style

Honda’s new Civic Sport Line trim incorporates some Type R styling touches

On sale now with prices from £25,510Sporty styling influenced by brand’s flagship Civic Type R hot hatchNew trim adds road presence without the associated running costs

Honda has announced a new Sport Line trim level for its recently revised 2020 Civic range. The sporty looks are reminiscent of the Civic Type R but the new trim level combines the hot hatch styling touches with Honda’s economical 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The Honda Civic Sport Line is available to order now with a starting price of £25,510.

The Type R comfortably remains the most aggressive and dramatic model in the Civic range, but the Sport Line model has similar front and side skirts, as well as a rear diffuser in the lower bumper and a subtle rear spoiler. New 17-inch piano-black alloy wheels are standard for the Sport Line, and buyers can choose from the existing Civic colour choices, as well as a striking new Obsidian Blue.

Inside, Honda have upgraded the Civic Sport Line’s interior with drilled aluminum pedals and seats featuring red stitching, which is also carried across on the steering wheel, gear shift boot and door panels.

Technology has also been upgraded, with Honda’s CONNECT infotainment system, fitted to the Civic Sport Line as standard. The system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a DAB radio and a reversing camera.

One engine is offered with two transmission options. Honda’s 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine offers 123bhp and fuel economy of up to 49.6mpg with CO2 emissions of 107g/km. This is paired with a manual six-speed gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. Prices start at £25,510 for the manual and £26,910 for the automatic. The car is on sale now, with first deliveries taking place in January 2020.
