The 1980 Civic debuted with a more angular shape, increased engine power, and larger dimensions in all models.
5-door station wagon
The wheelbase now measured 88.6 inches (2,250 mm) for the hatchback (the two-door "sedan" was dropped) and 91.3 inches (2,319 mm) for the wagon.
The Civic engines came in cross flow and CVCC design depending on the market they were sold in; the base 1335 cc ("1300") CVCC engine made 55 hp (41 kW), while the 1488 cc ("1500") CVCC engine produced 67 hp (50 kW).
Three transmissions were offered: a four-speed manual (on base models), a five-speed manual and a three-speed automatic.
