Any thoughts? I’m thinking we will see Honda sensing standard or at least on EX and above, updated styling and hopefully the infotainment from the 2018 Accord.

Civic Si to get the Accord 2.0L, and the peasants rejoiced...

Reality, it will get a volume knob.

Would be nice if the Civic Si got the VTEC 1.5 from the Accord even if they are pretty similar.

If the Si gets a 2.0 it will be back in the game. And the Type R markups will have to go away or they won’t sell.

If they keep both a 1.5T and 2.0T Si, the 2.0T Si will be marked up, guaranteed.

Volume knob and new infotainment software are given.

Hopefully they don’t screw up the fascias in the MMC, the Civic looks great. MMCs typically make fascias look like guilty puppies.

A lot of the Electronic safety aids will become standard. Just keeping up with the competition. It may even get the insight's/accords front bumper treatment.

If they add the 2.0T to the Si, then I'm seriously considering one. Let's hope that comes true.....

I've heard nothing about the 2019s except that the CTR is a near-100% carryover.

With the base Civic selling as well as it has, Honda really doesn't have to do much. Infotainment, software, perhaps Sensing as an option on the 6MTs, and maybe a few cosmetic tweaks. I could also see them collapsing a couple niche trims and adding an SE trim in 2020.

I find it unlikely that they'll add a Sport trim to the Coupe or Sedan. Or expand the Hatch to include the Si. And I remain doubtful of any major powertrain changes.

Has there been any noise on this front? I'd be hoping for a more refined look, minimizing the uni-brow and the fake vents (front and rear), but looking at the HRV refresh, I fear it will go the other way.

6MT on the EX Hatch should be included. It is available on the EX sedan, not sure why the inconsistency.

I could see a styling more in line with the new pilot/hrv/accord/insight. Cleaner lines, less faux grilles in the bumpers, etc.

8 speed DCT.

There was a Civic prototype with this transmission a couple years back.

Given the adaptive dampers and auto/start stop buttons in the picture, this is probably just the shifter for the Diesel model in Europe since that car will use a 9 speed automatic.

I'm willing to bet you're correct.

I wouldn't expect Honda to switch from CVT to any other automatic transmission options with the 1.5T powertrain during this generation. In speaking with some service managers it sounds like the CVTs have been pretty reliable and they definitely achieve very good fuel economy figures.

Shouldn't the Insight's interior pretty much what the 2019 Civic's should be?

I wouldn't be surprised to see the updated infotainment system and MAYBE the gauge cluster (though it seems like Honda borrowed THAT from the Accord). But don't forget the insight has the 12V battery inside the cabin, so the center console is reconfigured. I don't see them moving the 12V battery inside the Civic, so that part will likely be different.

Seeing the ILX is going on year 25, the Civic probably will see no changes.
