2019 Honda Civic Sport Sedan Review | Keep Up The Fun

2019 Honda Civic Sport Sedan Review | Keep up the fun

If the ninth-generation 2012 Civic was considered a sizeable step back, the tenth-generation 2016 Civic represented two giant steps forward for the nameplate and the entire lineup. The mildly facelifted 2019 Civic expands on that progress by introducing a Sport trim for the sedan that offers a six-speed manual transmission. But don't think of the long, lean four-door as a trunked version of the more expensive Sport hatchback with its more powerful turbocharged engine. The sedan, which Honda describes as "entry-level performance," aims at the hearts of budget-conscious and first-time buyers seeking sedan sobriety leavened by a touch of old-fashioned Honda fun.

Cosmetic changes across the lineup for 2019 introduce a gloss black grille, a wider, more sculpted lower bumper, and repositioned Honda Sensing gear to add symmetry to the lower front intakes. The Sport trim goes without the chrome accents around the front fog lights found on the other four trims — LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. And unlike those other variants, the Sport sedan slots a trapezoidal exhaust finisher into a four-fin, diffuser-like insert. Inside, the instrument binnacle glows with red lighting, the pedals are made of aluminum, it has a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and it features the nicer infotainment system with a 7-inch screen (and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration).

Sony Will Keep Making Smartphones But Only For Four Markets


Sony’s Xperia smartphone business has been losing money for quite some time now. Despite rumors that the company was looking to give up on the business altogether, Sony has reiterated its commitment to making smartphones, but will only be selling them in four markets going forward. It’s exiting all of the other markets for a more sustainable approach to the business.

Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said that the Xperia smartphone business is a pivotal part of Sony’s identity which is entertainment focused. “We see smartphones as hardware for entertainment and a component necessary to make our hardware brand sustainable,” pointing out that younger generations no longer watch TV, “their first touch point is smartphone.”
