    Is there any way to change the color of the dashboard display from red to blue for the Honda Civic Sport 2019? ...Not the headunit. I've seen a couple of pictures of the dashboard online... a couple of them show blue color instead of red. Maybe, that was the interior of a very similar model or from a different country? Is there a service setting that changes this color based on region?

    Pretty sure there's no option for this.

    My understanding is that red is only on the SI ( or RS in Australia) and type R. All others are blue.

    They're red on the 2019 Civic Sports now.

    I would of absolutely loved to be able to change the colors of the instrument panel like I can with the infotainment screen.

    Haven't heard of a setting yet. Best guess would be to upload the different firmware from another trim.

    Sport and Sport Touring hatchbacks have red.

    Red: Sport (2019), Sport Touring, Si and Type R

    Blue: LX (2019), LX-P (2016-18; trim discontinued), EX, EX-T (2016-18; trim discontinued), EX-L

    Is the analog instrument cluster no longer available due to Honda Sensing being standard across all trims?

    That's really too bad all the top sport models are red. Red doesn't look very good in my opinion compared to the blue color scheme I've seen. Maybe someone here will figure out a hack for this (using a different firmware) as @BaracksSI suggested.

    Red looks great (opinion) and is commonly regarded as “sporty” (pretty much every design trend does this). The drawback is, the RPM redline is nearly impossible to tell apart from the rest of the red accents on the gauge.

    Looks that way. I absolutely love my red combo analog/digital instrument panel in my 18 Sport Hatch. It was actually my deciding factor because the full digital one in the EX is ugly AF IMO

    Looks like all the 19 Sport hatch models have full digital ones now so I purchased at the right time

    I want to change the blue to red. Blue seems default and I dont mind but at least I was expecting some customization. I was a little bummed out as well that the 19 LX hatch doesn’t have an analog tac and the digital number font.

    It was my question when I was researching for my purchase... It is bit disappointing but the reason they cannot change the tachometer dash color is due to the physical gauges for the temp and fuel indicator.
    now if those were digital too and we can't change the dash color then honda has entered a realm of next level stupidity.
