Starting up front, the Civic and Civic Tourer gain a new front bumper and restyled headlights with integrated daytime running lights. The Civic hatchback goes one step further as it boasts a new rear bumper, redesigned side skirts, a black rear spoiler and LED taillights.

Interior changes are limited but include updated upholstery, chrome door handles and metallic black accents. The car also has a new Honda Connect infotainment system that has a seven-inch display and Google's Android operating system - unfortunately the outdated 4.0.4 version.

More interestingly, there's a new Civic Sport which has a sportier front bumper, mesh grille inserts and unique 17-inch alloy wheels. The model will be available with either a 1.6-liter diesel engine that produces 120 PS (88 kW) or a 1.8-liter petrol engine that cranks out 142 PS (104 kW).
