The production of the American version of the new 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback is in progress. The first cars intended for the US market will soon be presented to the public. Civic is one of Honda’s best-selling models around the world. The new generation is the most complete model ever produced by this brand. The four-door version of the Sedan version in America won the acclaimed car of the year in North America.
2019 Honda Civic Hatchback – Innovations in the Exterior, Interior and Safety Features
The new generation is as much as 130mm longer, 30mm wide and 20mm lower than its predecessor. But Honda claims that, thanks to the lightweight mechanical platform, they have been able to reduce the mass of the vehicle by increasing stiffness and reducing rolling. The longer the length of the car and the wheelbase, it was also reflected in the increase in passenger compartments in the rear seats. It received an additional 30 mm leg room.
Honda has given up this modular “Magic Seats” system this time when constructing the rear seats. So the saddle can no longer overlap, and the backrest is split in 60:40. Although Honda claims that the new 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback is a completely rebuilt car, the design is concerned with the general brand recognition of the Civic brand. Unlike the previous model that was characteristic of its rounded lines, the new 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback will have some sharp lines that certainly fit much better with the character of this fantastic model. It works fresh, different, dynamic, but it cannot be said in a coherent way.
The sharp passes and the prominent details make it very threatening at first glance but also overly aggressive. This is especially true for the front. From the back, the thing is a bit calmer and I have to admit more relaxed. The amount of light plastic is reduced. The volume of the trunk remained at the level of the predecessor and amounted to 478 liters in the basic configuration with upright rear seats.
The interior design has changed significantly. The center console is more pronounced. The multimedia system screen, instead of at the top of the instrument panel, is located below the central ventilation openings. The overall impression is that the cabin is more conventional. The space really has enough for those in the rear seats. The driver’s seat is well-designed. All commands are at your fingertips with plenty of information.
The new 2019 Civic Hatchback has a lightweight but very powerful bodywork that measures just 1,380 kilograms in spite of its dimensions. Low seating suggests a very low center of gravity (10 mm lower than the predecessor) as well as a very sophisticated undercarriage that emphasizes the sporty character. This character also follows the steering wheel. Precise, it can be said to be communicative and very reluctant to return information to the driver in order to make management more fun and safer.
Customers will be able to choose between three audio systems, of which the most expensive will have 180 watts and 11 speakers. The multimedia device is compatible with Apple Car Play and Android Auto systems, making it easy to integrate the smartphone, and Garmin navigation with a five-year free online map application is available for an extra charge.
2019 Honda Civic Hatchback – Modification under the Hood
For now, it is known that the new Honda Civic Hatchback 2019 will offer three engines. The new three-cylinder 1.0-liter turbo gasoline will produce 129 hp and 200 Nm. Those who want a more powerful gasoline engine can opt for a four-cylinder 1.5-liter VTEC unit with 182 hp and 260 Nm.
The power will be passed on to the wheels standardly using a six-speed manual transmission. And an optional CVT transmission system is also available. The diesel engine will be a well-known, 1.6-liter i-DTEC turbo engine, which delivered 120 hp in the current model. In Honda, this drive unit will be boosted and upgraded to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
2019 Honda Civic Hatchback – Expected Date of Arrival and Price
