With the 2021 Honda Civic release date expected to come sometime during fall 2020, we’ve been getting more and more enquiries wanting to hear what to expect from the upcoming model. The Civic Hatchback and Si received a mild refresh for 2020, so we expect them to carry over mostly unchanged. That said, industry insiders have led us to expect a few changes for the rest of the lineup, including the Honda Civic Sedan.
2021 Honda Civic Design
Both the 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback and Si were upgraded with small body-color crossbars in the front and rear bumpers, and the Type R got a larger grille and updated front spoiler. For 2021, that high-performance variant should get new forged-aluminum BBS wheels that lose 18 lbs. of unsprung weight. We may see similar upgrades on the 2021 Honda Civic Sedan.
Turn to the interior and you should still find the staggering dimensions Honda Civic models are known for. We expect those to remain the same for the 2021 Civic Sedan and Coupe.
2021 Honda Civic Performance
Honda has not announced any updates to the Honda Civic Sedan engine lineup, which currently includes:
- 158 hp, 138 lb-ft of Torque In-Line 4-Cylinder
- 174 hp, 162 lb-ft of Torque In-Line 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger
Those engines are available with:
- 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT)
- Continuously Variable Transmission
The Accord is dropping its own 6-speed manual for 2021, but we expect to see it retained by the 2021 Honda Civic.
2021 Honda Civic Price
We’ve not yet heard the official figures for 2021 Honda Civic Sedan prices, but the current model is priced at $20,800 MSRP* for the entry-level LX and goes up to $27,850 MSRP* for a top-tier Touring trim.
We expect those prices to remain roughly the same, with perhaps a few hundred dollars added to each trim level.
