Honda has introduced the facelifted Civic hatchback and wagon at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
These minor changes have been applied on the Euro-spec Civic which has gained a restyled front bumper together with updated headlights that incorporate daytime running lights. Opt for the hatchback and you also receive a tweaked rear bumper, black rear spoiler, modified side skirts and LED taillights.
The biggest change inside the cabin is the implementation of an Android-running infotainment system equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen display and providing support for DAB and Internet radio, Bluetooth, satellite navigation (optional), rear-view camera and Internet browsing. Honda has also installed chrome door handles, revised upholstery as well as metallic black accents.
The 2015 Honda Civic hatchback will also be available in a Sport derivative featuring bespoke 17-inch rims, front mesh grille inserts and a sportier front bumper. Customers will be able to select between a naturally aspirated 1.8-liter gasoline engine with 142 HP (104 kW) or a 1.6-liter turbodiesel generating 120 HP (88 kW).
All 2015 Civic models will come equipped as standard with a City-Brake Active system created to diminish the risk of a low-speed crash by using a radar to scan the road up ahead. Working at speeds of up to 19 mph (30 km/h), the system will automatically apply the brakes if it detects an imminent risk of collision.
