Yeah, I’ve read elsewhere that it can sometimes be either hypersensitive or unresponsive.

You can adjust it in infotainment center. lol. You can shut it off too.

I agree, the only thing I believe they did was slap a sport badge on it and put the exhaust tip and change the front end a bit. Did they at least add adaptive suspension like the Si? Because if that’s the case then I can call my car a sport to. It has the same engine and a six speed manual. Mine is the 2018 lx manual. It was literally the cheapest model that Honda offered in the civic. But I wanted the 2.0 manual so it was a win win for me. Plus I still think my front end is more aggressive than the sport frond end

How do you feel about the chrome? I had a 17 lx sedan and added the OEM hatchback gloss black grille. It totally changed the appearance. Can Send pictures if you're interested.

I like the chrome. When I first bought the car I was going to swap out the grille but I realized how good the chrome goes with my color. So I am leaving the chrome. Thanks though

I liked the chrome on mine at first (white orchid pearl EXT sedan) but after two years got tired of it and switched it out with the oem gloss black grille. I like this one a lot better, the matte black portion started to annoy me because it always faded. Plus I think the black grille on my white looks a bit sportier. I also think the body color matters, i.e. the steel grey doesn't look good against the black.
But, again, it all comes down to personal taste.

I've always thought the outlet on the sedan Sport model looks like it hangs too low. I wish Honda would integrate them better. The hatch Sport exhaust would have been nice on the sedan IMO.
I agree! Actually thought about swapping them but seems like too much of a hassle for an econo box. Might just simply trade it in for a hatchback after the big depreciation period.

I don’t mind that the new civic has the black grille. I just don’t like that they changed this part of the bumper. To me it made it look a little funny. I think the old style was more aggressive. Again it’s just my opinion. All the other changes were good. But this bumper has to go. Looks like a fish mouth lol.

Atleast y'all have the base engine as 2.0 , in some parts of the world Civic comes as 1.6L as base NA and in asian countries such as India, 1.8L as standard.

Luckily I bought one 2.0L which had limited stock in lunar silver and ivory interior.
It is a 2019 model and still without a Volume knob, but physical fan speed buttons.

The A pillar is kind of loose in Civics and rattles when on rough road, other than that sound system is a bit disappointing.
Highs are too bright and scream in your ears while playing music.
How is it a 2019 with no volume knob?

Has anyone seen this? These do match the camouflage image earlier.

I saw them on my Facebook feed. I'm reserving judgement until I see that in person. I think it's got the potential to significantly improve the look of both fascias, though.

I just got myself a 2019 Touring in Cosmic Blue. I prefer the black grill and the new 18inch on the Touring are awesome!

The rear vents are fine, and it'd be great without the body color matching strips. The flat front vents are bad, let alone not matching with the design language of the rear vents.

They are heavily influenced by the Germans, apparently. To me, it's a step backward compared with what the 16-18 had..
