Yep. That was the problem with the sport. I didn't like the wheels and tires at all from an economy standpoint. I liked the LX a lot. It was the best bang for the buck and Honda screwed up by offering so many features on the base model. I saw a Civic hatch and VW Sportwagen side by side at the state fair. As it happened, the honda and vw dealers had set up tents right next to each other. Both models will swallow a lot of stuff in the back but I'm getting off topic. The engine in the 2019 is the same one as this Jetta, the EA211 1.4 TSI. There are many similar technologies in this engine compared to the Earthdreams 1.5L turbo Civic. Both have an integrated head/exhaust manifold that's liquid cooled to extend the life of the turbocharger. Both have dual coolant circuits with dual thermostats to allow the head/exhaust manifold and block to operate at different temps. Both use very high pressure GDI with fancy firing to achieve a stratified charge. Both employ variable valve timing on intake and exhaust cams. The VW engine differs in that it uses hydraulic cam followers to automatically adjust lash while the civic still uses screw adjusters from the pleistocene era. VW uses an individual cam lobe for each valve where Honda cheaps out a bit with a single lobe and forked cam follower. Honda uses a timing chain that will lengthen over time and VW uses a belt that will need replacing eventually. When? VW claims it will last the life of the engine. haha. but they won't be pinned down as to how long that is.
