First, a look at the 2020 Honda Civic
The facelifted Civic features a sportier and more aggressive look than the outgoing model. The car gets styling tweaks in the form of an updated blacked-out grille and angular-looking bumpers.
The car also houses 16-inch (17-inch on higher-spec models) diamond-cut alloy wheels, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and body-colored rear spoiler.
For lighting, the sedan offers full-LED headlamps with LED DRLs, indicators, and taillights.
Inside the cabin
Inside, the 2020 Civic features a five-seater blacked-out cabin with chrome accents around the three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel, and a panoramic sunroof.
The car also gets a fully-digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment panel with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Besides that, it offers safety features like ABS with EBD, six airbags, and rearview camera with parking sensors.
Power and performance
Internationally, the Honda Civic is available in three engine options: a 1.0-liter petrol, a 1.5-liter petrol, and a 1.6-liter diesel.
The former two are capable of producing 124bhp and 180bhp of maximum power, respectively. The 1.6-liter diesel mill, on the other hand, churns out 118bhp.
For transmission duties, the car offers a 6-speed manual gearbox or an automatic CVT system.
