The Honda Civic for 2019 has undergone transformations of its own, in light of the Accord’s changes in 2018. The Civic’s changes include a lengthening of the sedan version to 15 feet, making it eligible for mid-size status, something discriminating shoppers might want to check out. Urban consumers, who look to the Civic for quick trips and parking advantages and economy, won’t be disappointed by the 2019 Civic. As for personality, the longer nose has given the Civic a styling edge, so small car sex appeal is enhanced in the 2019 Civic.

People go for the mid-size Accord for the security of a trunk, and the sedan fits any situation. So, what’s the difference between the 2019 Honda Civic and Accord? Consider these three areas:

Standard Vehicle Options

The Honda Accord’s 192-hp, 1.5-liter, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine shows more power than the Civics' 158-hp, 2.0-Liter 4-Cylinder Engine, but the Continuous variable automatic transmission competes with the Civics' 6-Speed Manual Transmission. The Sport feature in the Accord’s transmission might make up for it. On the other hand, the Civic offers a continuous variable automatic transmission as standard equipment.

The Honda Accord offers Bluetooth hands-free streaming and an audio component in the 160-watt sound system with 4 speakers. The 17-inch alloy wheels make the Honda a hot ride. The dual-zone automatic climate control system makes sense in an auto that can carry 5 people. A nice touch is the addition of a 7-inch Driver Information Interfacing screen.

The Honda Civic offers much of the same, but with a smaller 5-Inch Color LCD Screen. The Civic increases the car space with a 5-Passenger Seating system featuring a fold-down rear Seat-back. Clearly, the Accord leads the way in standard features, but the Civic has nice things to offer.

Fuel Efficiency

Honda carved out its place in the American car market with fuel efficiency. The 2019 Honda Civic delivers an impressive 32 city/42 highway*. The Honda Accord delivers 22 city/32 highway*. With a hybrid, the Accord almost reaches 30 city / 38 highway mpg**, making any person think seriously about switching to the hybrid. As cars get bigger, the saying goes, the gas mileage falls off. So, it’s fair to say that the Honda Civic will beat the Accord at the gas pump.


For the Honda Accord, standard equipment includes the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive features, a Multi-angle rear-view camera with guidelines, where the Civic offers the same safety suite. This suite includes collision braking correction, road departure warning, a cruise system that keeps intervals between vehicles, lane detection, and correction system and a traffic sign recognition system. If you want to pay for options, both cars offer a right lane camera for moving across lanes, blind spot alert system, and a cross-traffic monitor when in reverse. This could cut down on rear-end accidents. Many night drivers will appreciate the automatic high beam technology. Both cars offer front and curtain airbags to ensure safety during catastrophic collisions, but the Accord also offers front knee bags.

Of course, the best way to know a vehicle is to get behind the wheel. Stop by Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg to test drive both models to experience how they compare.
