The refreshed Honda Civic, arriving early next year, has a restyled front end, an upgraded interior and new colour options.

There's an additional lower grille section around the foglights, while the main grille has been simplified in a move designed to give the front profile “a cleaner, more aerodynamic design”. Full LED headlights are also available for the first time, accompanied by a minor redesign of the daytime running lights and honeycomb inserts, the latter of which are the result of customer feedback. The exterior changes are capped off by a new Obsidian Blue paint in addition to existing colours.

The facelifted Civic can be specified with a new design of 16in alloy wheels for the entry-level model. The mid and top-range versions can be optioned with 17in wheels, available in an exclusive grey coat.

Inside, there's a new, textured panel over the glovebox on the passenger side. An electric eight-way adjustable driver's seat has been added to the range-topping model. All models benefit from a revamped infotainment system, now with buttons and dials in response to customer demand.

The three engine options, a 1.0-litre petrol, 1.5-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel, are unchanged.

The updated Civic is £400 more expensive, with new prices beginning at £18,845. Deliveries will commence in January next year.

Agree 100% with Will

Needed just simpler smoother numbers better nav and interior tweaks and a delete option for the R silly spoiler.

Price increase?

According to Honda UK's website the current model is listed as from £19405. So either the company has reduced the price by £560, or it isn't a like for like comparison. Either way, the entry price is quite a bit less than that of a Ford Focus and the Honda at least has proper independent rear suspension. I would agree that the looks can be a bit challenging, but you do get used to it and it is at least distinctive.

A matter of taste..?

.  The Focus was a fine handler, so was the Mk 2 Mondeo, infact the Ford Ka Mk1/2 were great to drive, I've no doubt a Honda is a great steer to,but, in no way is it superior just because it has independent suspension......

All the magazine reviews

All the magazine reviews would imply otherwise, apparently golfs and focus' with independent rear suspension as opposed to torsion beam on the cheaper models, ride far better, whether or not I could tell the difference, well I doubt it, but reviews do harp on about how inferior cars without independent rear suspension are.
And so what actually 19 November 2019
