This is for the USA but as Honda has a global platform I guess the same changes will hit Europe also.
Tweaked shaded headlights
Changes to front fog light grille
Updated alloy wheels
Changes to diffuser at rear
Volume button on infotainment
Tweaked front seats

This is the vid https://youtu.be/7GHB6DmL580 don't think there was much else I missed

Still has that lousy CVT and the honeycomb grilles at the back.

Sorry but for a premium brand the gearbox options are just pathetic when there are decent options from ZF everywhere.

Seemed to have dropped the great dual level dash display which the Mk9 has. Cost cutting exercise.

Was this dropped for the Mk 10?

Hopefully they don't reintroduce the parking sensor issues with a modified grille 😁

I appreciate that the extended display is another complication but why do these manufacturers think they know best. A real marketing opportunity lost as far as i am concerned

I thought the same, but in the end it does not matter. I switched and I was thinking I will be missing it a lot as I have like it so much but I do not at all. Actually much more prefer the spacious interior of 10G in compare to cramped 9G / 8G (of which part reason was dual layer dash adding to the cluttered feeling).

Sorry but for me all the little changes Honda are introducing which originally were extremely innovative selling points are gradually being fazed out and the Civic is becoming very ordinary. Sad when Honda Engineering is held in such good stead..

Not just the digital display. but the rear door handles, the 2.2 diesel, the 'magic seats' and even the bonnet line which now finishes in a straight line instead of blending into the aerodynamic shape. It's only a matter of time before the rear spoiler which has characterized the Civic disappears altogether.

Obviously a cost cutting exercise now that the redesigned Civic has captured the market it once attracted.

hah! Again I was thinking the same (mostly about interior) as 10G is more toned down and normal like. But then I was driving rented sportsback Hyundai I30 on the weekend (which is current model and was almost brand new car) and the interior was just such low quality in compare to Honda. I am talking design in all of its aspects: functional, appearance , quality of materials used. It was shockingly bad

Saying this nothing has rattled and autobox was extremely smooth while changing gears and petrol engine was well matched to the box and the car. Still I muuuucchhhhh prefer my 10g. If only I can figure out how to make the seats more comfy in my 10g.

I very much like the external shape of my post-lift 9G but it is getting dated as an evolution of 8G which looks just bad at this stage (8G is not aging well IMHO).

10G is still a totally different looking car to anything else on EU roads, where most other manufacturers are playing it safe and making "clones" of each other designs with little tweak here and there.

Cheers
cb550 and stoo like this.

No really a cost cutting exercise:

Split screen display was loved and hated in equal numbers, the new LCD screen still has the digital Speedo but has so many more options and TBH i don't need to be looking at the speedo, can judge my speed. Drive my daughters Mk IIV some time as its impossible ot get a good seating position where you can see both displays - so I was a hater and that complaint was the main reason it was dropped.

Diesel - well we all know where that's gone - thanks VW
Magic seats - while a loss, removing them represented a move away from that awful & cheep torsion beam to a much more expensive multi link and driving both I'll take the multilink over magic seats every day.

As for the bonnet line I think that's gone back to some of the older Honda's - Legend particularly - with that almost 'US muscle car' vertical nose - its the reason why this is the first Civic I have liked and bought.

As fot he spoiler, hen lets hope it stays - we'll known soon enough as the next model is 2021 in the US so we'll probably see the prototype in 12 months or so.

Thanks for your well covered comments. You forgot to mention the discreet rear door handles on the Mk9 which gave it a sporty two door appearance. I loved the MK9 design.
