• Civic Hatchback receives more aggressive front and rear styling
• Civic is the best-selling car in Canada for 21 years running
The 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback returns with updated exterior styling and new interior trim. It goes on-sale in Canada on September 13, 2019, , joining the 2020 Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe which were refreshed last year.
Exterior and Interior Updates
Exterior styling refinements to the 2020 Civic Hatchback lineup include revised styling of the lower bumper fog light housings, which now feature a body-color crossbar. The Honda-signature “wing” grille crossbar is also updated, and the headlights now feature a sporty blackout treatment.
In the rear, the lower bumper openings receive similar changes to the front, with a new body-color crossbar. All trims feature new wheel designs, in either dark gray or black. Sport Touring trims also benefit from improved LED headlights with wider and longer light beams.
Inside the 2020 Civic Hatchback, new dash trim differentiates various trim levels, with Sport trims receiving a new geometrical pattern and Sport Touring an exclusive brushed black treatment. The Sport trim also adds an 8-way power driver’s seat in place of manual adjustments. Sport Touring trims also now come with HomeLink®. All Civic Hatchbacks also benefit from additional sound insulation in the floor, trunk, and front and rear fenders.
This year’s changes build on model year 2019 changes, which included the addition of the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive systems as standard equipment on all trims, and multiple usability updates. Enhancements to technology and connectivity included an updated Display Audio system with physical buttons and a volume knob, improved voice recognition and Bluetooth®, upgraded steering wheel controls for simplified operation, and physical buttons for fan speed on models with dual-zone climate control. Other changes included a new center console cup holder that better holds larger beverages, and an updated electronic parking brake with an indicator light.
Sport and Sport Touring Trims
The Civic Hatchback Sport receives new seat upholstery unique to Sport trims, and a new embossed dash trim similar to what’s found on the Sport trim introduced last year for Civic Sedan. For the line-topping Sport Touring trim HomeLink® is also standard.
