2022 Honda Civic

Pros: Roomy interior; economical powertrains; Honda Sensing suite of safety features is standard on all models

Cons:  Manual transmission not offered on sedan; sporty Si and Type R models are on hiatus

CG Says: The Honda Civic is redesigned for 2022, with fresh styling, new safety features, and updated tech options. This front-wheel-drive compact car is offered as a 2-door hatchback in LX, Sport, EX-L, and Sport Touring models, and as a 4-door sedan in LX, Sport, EX, and Touring versions. The sporty Si trim level was dropped for 2021; the Si and the high-performance Type R are both on hiatus for now, but are expected to return in the near future.

Engines are updated versions of the outgoing Civic’s 4-cylinders: LX and Sport models have a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter; EX/EX-L and Touring/Sport Touring Civics have a 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter. Hatchbacks are available with a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic; manual transmission isn’t offered on sedans.

Passenger space is nearly identical to the outgoing Civic, though there are several newly available features, including a fully digital configurable instrument display, larger color touchscreens, wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, and wireless device charging.

New safety features include rear-seat side airbags, Traffic Jam Assist, a blind-spot monitor in place of the previous blind-spot camera, and a revised front collision-warning system designed to recognize hazards and road features more quickly and accurately.

Honda has chosen to take a conservative, understated route with the new-generation Civic’s exterior styling, which may be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes. Regardless, the Civic has always been a must-see in its class, and Honda’s latest version of this evergreen nameplate will likely keep it there for years to come.
