2022 Honda Civic

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

Cons: Manual transmission no longer offered; 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 available in LX, Sport, EX, and Touring models. 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. Initially, the new Civic is offered only as a 4-door sedan, but a hatchback body style is expected soon. Engines are updated versions of the outgoing Civic’s 4-cylinders: LX and Sport models have a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter; EX and Touring models have a 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter. All models have a CVT automatic transmission; the previous-generation Civic’s 6-speed manual transmission is no longer available, but Sport and Touring models have steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters to facilitate manual shifting, along with a driver-selectable Sport mode. 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.
