2020 Honda Civic Prices, Reviews, and Pictures
It’s fair to say that the Civic officially found its way out of the woods back when Honda introduced this latest generation in 2016. For nearly a decade prior, we were underwhelmed with the Civic’s design and quality. But Honda got this latest 10th-generation Civic right and, for now, is content to polish at the margins.
While most Civics stay par for the course in 2020, the hatchbacks get a host of updates — several of which debuted on other body styles last year. This year, the Civic hatch gets front and rear styling updates that include revised foglight housings and blacked-out front trim accents. Inside, there are a few new features in different trims plus additional sound insulation, which should help quell some of the road noise complaints we’ve had with this current model.
Honda is also expanding the availability of Civic’s optional six-speed manual transmission to include the hatchback’s top Sport Touring trim. At a time when automakers can’t get rid of the old-school stick shift fast enough, this move is a refreshing commitment from Honda to keep the connection between car and driver strong.
All of this adds to the 2020 Honda Civic’s other strengths that include quick acceleration, crisp handling and cargo-carrying versatility. While it’s still worth checking out the competition — including the sporty and recently redesigned Mazda 3, the weather-beating Subaru Impreza and the value-packed Kia Forte — the Honda Civic continues to set the benchmark.
Notably, we picked the 2020 Honda Civic as one of Edmunds’ Best Gas Mileage Cars for 2020.
The Honda Civic has long been one of the better compact cars, but its 2016 redesign was nothing short of game-changing. Not only did it help revitalize the Civic nameplate, it shifted our expectations of what a compact car could be. This generation Civic is well-regarded for its spacious cabin, excellent ride quality, upscale interior materials and superb handling. We’re also smitten with its powerful and efficient turbocharged engine. We liked it so much, in fact, that we plunked down our own money to buy one. To read about our experiences with a top-of-the-line Touring sedan, read our long-term Civic test . Note that while we tested a 2016 Civic, all of our observations still apply to the 2020 model.
The 2020 Honda Civic sedan is offered in LX , Sport , EX , EX-L , Touring and Si trims. The base LX comes with a lot of equipment for the money, but the Sport may be worth the upgrade for those looking for extra features. The EX includes a turbocharged engine plus other goodies, and the EX-L primarily adds leather upholstery. The Touring is the most luxurious Civic, while the Si swaps some amenities for a sportier driving experience. Two other body styles — the Civic coupe and Civic hatchback — have differing trim structures and are reviewed separately. The LX and the Sport are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable automatic transmission . The EX, EX-L and Touring step up to a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder mated to the CVT automatic. The Si uses a more powerful version of this motor and is exclusively available with the manual transmission.
Though it may be the base trim, the standard Civic LX sedan comes with a lot of equipment for the money. Standard equipment includes 16-inch steel wheels and automatic climate control. Electronics features include a 5-inch central display screen and a four-speaker sound system.
Also standard is the Honda Sensing safety package. It includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and keeping assist, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
The Sport adds upgrades such as 18-inch alloy wheels, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless ignition and entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and an eight-speaker audio system.
Stepping up to the EX secures the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine, along with a sunroof, 17-inch wheels, Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
If you want a few more features, there’s the EX-L with its leather upholstery. The Touring has 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, a power-adjustable passenger seat, heated rear seats, navigation, and a 10-speaker audio system.
The Si builds off the EX-L and adds a few performance bits, including the more powerful engine. It also includes a limited-slip differential, a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, bigger front brakes, Si-branded sport seats, the 10-speaker stereo, and a unique gauge cluster.

The Civic and Toyota Corolla have duked it out for decades, and the Corolla’s full redesign for 2020 has only reignited the flames. The new Corolla has impressed us with greatly improved cabin materials, surprisingly capable handling, and an infotainment system that is easier to use than the Civic’s. However, we still prefer the Honda for its rapid acceleration, fuel-efficient turbocharged engine, and spacious, adult-friendly rear seat.
If you’re looking for a bit of driving fun to go along with your sophisticated compact car, the Mazda 3 is a great place to start. On upper trim levels, the Mazda 3 feels downright luxurious. It’s available with all-wheel drive too. The Mazda 3 can also match the Civic hatchback for driving fun. For maximum cargo space, however, the Civic is still tops.
If you like the Civic’s size and layout but want something that uses less fuel, look no further than the Honda Insight. The Insight is just as practical as the Civic, but its electrified powertrain makes it one of the most efficient traditional hybrids available. Its infotainment system is also more intuitive than the Civic’s older interface. The Insight’s only downsides are a higher price tag and slower acceleration.

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they’ll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it’s true, provided you’re willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It’s also good if you’re someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
