NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2021
The redesigned Honda Civic is getting a more grown-up design and feature set for its 11th generation as it battles to stay relevant amid America's crossover surge. For the 2022 model, the Civic offers an all-digital instrument panel, a sport driving mode, a premium Bose stereo system and a tasteful metal honeycomb accent across the dash as part of a simplified interior design.
The Civic, also available as a hatchback later in the year, offers new options on the high-level Touring trim, such as the all-digital instrument display measuring 10.2 inches, new 9-inch infotainment touch screen and a Bose premium sound system.
On the lower LX and Sport trims, the standard 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine produces 158 hp. It comes with a standard idle-stop system and new catalytic converter design to improve fuel efficiency by 1 mpg in city driving, according to EPA estimates.
On the higher EX and Touring trims, the Civic comes with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 180 hp, for a 6-hp increase over the outgoing model. The turbo engine also gains 1 mpg in the city cycle, Honda said.
The car's pricing will be released closer to its sales launch in the summer.
