2020 Honda Civic Si Sedan Introduce https://youtu.be/NAz7IE8tpnA

The Honda Civic has long represented smart, sensible transportation. It was affordable to buy, fuel and maintain. Many folks didn't even bother shopping around to see what else was out there. If you're expecting a "but things are different now" verdict for the 2020 Honda Civic, it won't be coming. Of course, it's actually a good idea to test drive its genuinely desirable and/or sensible alternatives (the Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte), but Honda's compact car offers such a diverse selection of trims, body styles and performance levels that just choosing among Civics might be complicated enough.

And it doesn't just have variety on its side. The Civic offers a well-rounded docket that goes beyond just dollars-and-sense matters. Its interior is spacious, comfortable and well-made. The turbocharged engine found in most trim levels provides excellent acceleration and fuel economy. Its ride and handling are well-balanced, while interior noise levels have fallen sharply from past versions. The Civic Si and Civic Type R, meanwhile, are two of the most desirable performance cars on the market. Basically, there's a little something for everyone. It's definitely worth a look.

What's new for 2020?
The regular Civic sedan, coupe and hatchback are unchanged for 2020 after numerous updates last year. However, the high-performance Si sedan and coupe do see changes. Visually, this includes minor front and rear styling changes, new matte black wheels and additional red accents sprinkled throughout the cabin. In terms of feature content, the Honda Sensing suite of accident avoidance technology is now standard, having previously been unavailable. Mechanically, its 1.5-liter turbo engine remains unchanged on paper, but a shorter final drive ratio ultimately improves acceleration. A new Active Sound Control function pipes simulated engine noise through the stereo speakers. Information about the 2020 Civic Type R had not been released at the time of this writing.
The Honda Civic has a spacious interior that feels even more so thanks to a low dashboard and thin pillars. The materials are high quality, and you should find a comfortable driving position whether you prefer to sit low or high. The seats in normal Civics are a bit on the flat side, but they do feature stylish upholstery and have a reasonable amount of cushion. Both the Civic Si and Type R have increasingly more aggressive front seat bolsters that hold you snugly, but aren't so firm that you feel pinched or poked.

All Civics get a digital display for the tachometer, speedometer and additional driving information, and the readouts are under deep cowls. Two types of infotainment systems are available. Low-trim models get a very basic system with a small screen and old-fashioned physical buttons and knobs for navigating through different functions. It does feature Bluetooth, a USB port and a media player interface, but is not compatible with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The second version comes with a 7-inch touchscreen that last year added physical buttons and volume knob. Unfortunately, the user interface is still ugly, sluggish and not particularly user friendly. The good news is that it does include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are both much easier to use than the Honda software.
