Honda introduced the 11th-gen Civic back in 2022 and we loved it! But it was missing one important thing: a hybrid powertrain. For 2025, the Civic sees a mild refresh and it includes an all-new Honda Civic Hybrid. We’re here in Detroit, Michigan to get a First Look.

The hybrid returns to the Civic lineup in either a sedan or hatchback body style and Honda says the hybrid will make up about 40% of all Civic sales.

Honda is calling this the most powerful non-Type R Civic ever. What that means is that the two motor hybrid system is going to produce an estimated 200-horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. That’s right, that’s torquier than an Si. Plus, there’s an estimated up to 50 miles-per-gallon combined. So, efficiency and power? That’s a win, win.

Like the Accord, Civic trims are now separated by gas and hybrid powertrains. Base LX and Sport models still see the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine while hybrids are only available by moving up to Sport Hybrid and Sport Touring Hybrid trims.

The biggest change you’re going to notice on 2025 Civics is right here in the front. We have a really slightly revised fascia but it does a lot. It looks a lot more cohesive right here around the headlights than before. And then of course here on the Sport Touring model we have a really interesting lower fascia design that looks really sporty and more aggressive than pre-refreshed models.

And contributing to that aggressive new look are also darkened tail lights. Four new colors join the lineup including Sand Dune Pearl on the hatchback and Blue Lagoon Pearl on the sedan.

Hybrids receive special tuning to the springs and dampers, along with a specifically developed tire. Sport Touring Hybrids see new 18-inch machine finished wheels.

You’re not going to notice too many changes on the interior of the 2025 Civic, layout is pretty much exactly the same. But one thing you will notice is we now have an available gray interior here on the hybrid. On the Sport Touring hybrid models we also have Google Built-In. And one thing that Honda really focused on specific to the hybrid models was improving the NVH. So inside the cabin while you’re driving should be more quiet and more comfortable than before.

Sport Hybrid models come standard with a moonroof, heated front seats, and dual zone climate. A 12-speaker Bose audio system and a larger 9-inch central display with wireless smartphone integration are available.

All Civics have front USB-C ports and Honda Sensing safety and driver assistance features.

Full pricing details aren’t out just yet but we expect hybrid models to start just under $30,000. The 2025 Civic will arrive in dealers next month, starting with the sedan and hatchbacks will arrive later this summer. We’re going to get behind the wheel of the hybrid in just a few weeks so stay tuned and keep it locked, right here on MotorWeek!
