Honda is at the front end of a major overhaul of its crossover lineup. At the same time, the brand is expected to launch additional hybrid versions of its existing vehicles and add its first mainstream battery-electric crossover in 2024.
Honda vehicles coming to the end of their current design lifecycles include the HR-V subcompact crossover, which is in its first generation from the 2016 model year, as well as the CR-V compact crossover and the Passport and Pilot midsize crossovers. The marque's passenger cars are relatively fresh. The Civic compact was redesigned in both its sedan and hatchback versions this year, and the Accord midsize was freshened for the 2021 model year. Honda discontinued the Fit subcompact hatchback and the Civic coupe last year.
Civic: One of America's favorite entry-level cars for decades, the sedan was redesigned as a 2022 model and is on sale now. The 11th generation of the hatchback will also go on sale this year.
Some trims of the hatch will offer a manual transmission. The hot-hatch Si sedan, which comes with only a six-speed manual transmission, should be in showrooms by year end. The Civic Type R, an even hotter Honda hatch, has been spotted in spy photos and should be ready by next year. A freshen to the new-gen Civic should come in 2024 with a redesign in 2026.
