2022 Honda Civic Walkaround
The brand new redesigned 2022 Honda Civic is the 11th generation of Honda’s iconic sedan, and is one of the most fun-to-drive and technologically advanced Civics in the model’s nearly 50-year history.
Outside, the 2022 Civic’s styling is cleaner and more elegant than we’ve previously seen, with both a larger grill and smoother front end. And while there are some similarities with the 2021 model, you’ll see that it is a bit longer, and maybe even more noticeably, the hood has been elongated for a more premium appearance. Under the hood you got the same Honda reliability that the Civic has always been known for, and we now have an even more powerful 1.5-liter turbo engine that’s both responsive and more fuel-efficient.
On the inside, where far bigger changes were made, you can see we have a much cleaner looking cabin. The honeycomb trim that runs practically from door to door adds a bit of texture and sportiness to the Civic dash. The new front bucket chairs offer a more comfortable design for those long road trips. And there’s plenty of space for your passengers in the backseat.
If you pop the trunk, you get up to 14.8 cubic feet of storage space, and the 60/40 split folding rear seats give you even more functionality.
When it comes to technology, the new Civic is loaded. The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment center is right in the driver’s sightline to reduce distractions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are supported in all models, and both can connect wirelessly in Touring models for added convenience. And with a wireless charging pad, you’re all set for smartphone integration.
An updated Honda Sensing Suite has made the adaptive cruise control system more responsive and gives the lane centering a more natural feeling. Traffic Jam Assist and Low Speed Braking Control have also been added, which should make rush-hour a little more tolerable. And this is the first year that the Honda Civic Touring comes with Bumper Sensors and the Blind Spot Information System to make driving this vehicle not only safer but even easier.
New front airbags have been designed to further increase the safety for front passengers and for the first-time in a Civic, you now have rear seat side airbags giving this a 5-star government safety rating in every category.
With 4 trim levels to choose from, new technology, additional safety features and a beautiful new cabin, this may just be the best Civic ever! Stop by Wilde East Towne Honda to take a test drive and see how the 2022 Civic handles for yourself!
