    Details

    The next generation of Honda Civic is here. Arguably the best commuter car in the world is all-new for 2022, and has more features, safety, and technology than ever. Since 1973, the Civic has been a large part of Honda's lineup, and the current 10th generation is the most popular Civic of all time. Needless to say, the next-generation has a lot to live up to.

    Appearance

    Let's talk styling: The 2022 Civic borrows many styling cues from its big brother, the Accord, and has a slightly longer wheelbase for increased rear-seat comfort. "Rear legroom remains the same," says Dan Calhoun, Honda senior planner for the Civic four-door and Si, "But the longer wheelbase allowed us to increase the rake of the rear seat slightly for more comfort." Cargo capacity is also about the same.

    The Civic appears to be shorter and wider than before, with almost a rear-wheel drive setup. Unfortunately, but understandably, the Civic is front-wheel drive, with no known plans of switching.

    The Interior

    Moving inside the 2022 Civic you will immediately see its 9-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a feature that is all-new for the 11th generation. The infotainment system this massive screen will be displaying is brand new, and is also equipped in Accord and Odyssey models. This new system is faster, has better graphics, and comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Capability. Also new is a digital gauge cluster, which contributes to the new Civic's minimalistic interior design. Another nod to the larger Accord is the steering wheel, which is new and certainly nothing special.

    From my viewing of the Honda-released images, I spotted 2 cup holders, 3 central climate/volume control knobs, and what looks to be a dashboard-length air vent.

    Powertrain

    We don't know much about what will be powering the next-generation Civic, or how the said power will be delivered, but we do, thankfully, know that 2022 Civic Si and Type R models will retain their clutch pedals - phew! Presumably, Si models will be sedan only and Type Rs will be hatchback exclusive.

    Safety

    The Civic is significantly safer this time around, and includes more airbags, an updated Honda Sensing system, and an advanced version of Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure system. This same rigid structural improvement also adds sporty dynamics, driving refinement, and ride quality, according to Honda.

    Pricing

    The 2022 Honda Civic should arrive late next spring, with Si and Type R variants following. As far as pricing, I would estimate a starting price of around $21,000-$22,000 for the sedan, and $23,000-$24,000 for hatchback models.

      • Most likely the summer of 2021, but no dates have been confirmed by Honda.

    • Not sure I like it. It is like a 90 percent sized accord. I miss when the civic was small and looked fun. This looks like it is taking itself too seriously and has grown up too much...
