Just because the Honda Civic is the best-selling compact in the U.S.—above the Toyota Corolla and others—doesn’t mean Honda has always had a Midas touch with the model.

Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place.

The car will be meant for existing owners of the Honda City interested in upgrading to a larger car but staying in the Honda fold. Notably, this is the reason why Honda is bringing back the Civic at this juncture. The current Honda City, which was launched in 2014, will turn 5 years old in 2019.

2019 Honda Civic Si coupe and sedan; Manufacturer images Honda's 2019 model-year refresh for the popular Civic now hits the sportier Civic Si, albeit in pared-down form. Call it a skinny refresh: Available as a coupe or sedan, the refreshed Si gets updated cabin controls but no significant styling changes or safety upgrades — both of which came on lesser Civic grades for 2019.
