D​etails

H​onda has released full details, excluding price, for the 2022 Civic sedan. With carryover engines, a more mature exterior, and a much nicer interior, among other upgrades, the economy sedan is greatly improved. Following the pattern with Civics, the 11th-generation is more of an evolution, while the 10th-gen was a true revolution. Honda says the 2022 Civic will go on sale in the U.S this summer, with performance models and the hatchback body style following later.

S​tance and styling tweaks aren't too dramatic, but consist of a 1.4-inch longer wheelbase and a .5-inch extended rear track. The redesign replaces the outgoing model's hard lines and strange angles with a more mature, sleeker design. Si and Type R performance variants will arrive later, and should be fitted with turbocharged engines and manual transmissions. A hatchback version will also go on sale at a later date.

U​nder the hood, engines obtainable are exactly the same as current Civics. The base engine is a 2.0 L inline-four with the same 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, and it's standard on LX and Sport trim levels. A 1.5 L turbo inline-four is once again included with the EX and Touring models, and boasts 6 hp and 15 lb-ft more torque for a total of 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired to CVTs, and EPA fuel economy figures are up by 1 or 2 mpg, depending on the configuration.

T​he 11th-generation Honda Civic's interior is possibly the most improved part of the vehicle. Like its exterior, the hard lines and weird trim piece angles are gone, and are replaced by a simpler interior design. A 7-inch infotainment screen is standard, and works above a selection of hard buttons, while a 9-inch one comes on Touring models along with a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is standard, as is a wireless mirroring technology with the larger screen. A premium Bose audio system is also on board with the Civic Touring.

T​he LX has 16-inch wheels with hubcaps, the Sport gets black 18-inch wheels, the EX benefits from 17-inch wheels with black inserts, and the touring has 18-inch wheels with grey inserts. Eight exterior colors will be offered, including three new ones: Meteorite Grey Metallic, Sonic Grey Pearl, and Morning Mist Blue. Additionally, a large suite of driver-assistance features will be equipped, and rear-seat side airbags are standard for the first time.

P​ricing has yet to be released, but is expected to rise slightly. Honda says the 2022 Civic will arrive at U.S dealerships in summer 2021.
