We’re excited to showcase that innovation with a closer look at the new 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback, which pays homage to the first-generation Civic introduced in the early 1970s. It’s safe to say that the latest rendition easily impresses, and here’s why we know our Suwanee drivers will love it!
#1 – It’s Sportier Than Ever
One of the design features you’ll love about the new Civic Hatchback is that it puts a modern spin on the traditional coupe. Inspired by the coupe-like profile of European sport-backs, the Civic is all about simplification. Honda accomplishes this with the hatchback’s clean exterior and interior lines and enhanced visibility, the latter of which is the result of Honda moving the windshield pillars back nearly two inches. The front hood also sits lower, and the horizontal beltline draws your eye to the tires and the front fenders, giving the hatchback a grounded and sturdier stance.
#2 – The Interior Is Designed Especially for You
Small sedans can feel cramped inside because of their configurations. Honda remedies this with a redesigned human-centered cabin that focuses on you, your comfort, and your visibility. The interior is simple and uncluttered, which makes the cabin feel even more spacious. Whether you’re sitting in the driver’s seat or one of the passenger seats, your view is clear and unhindered thanks to the repositioned A-pillars, lower front hood, flat dashboard, and door-mounted exterior mirrors.
The streamlined design continues to the center instrument panel that boasts minimal lines to reduce reflections from the windshield. The metal honeycomb accent panel adds a touch of sophistication and conveniently hides the air vents. The rear also sees several upgrades, including larger side windows and a single-piece rear window that gives the hatchback an airy feel and the driver an unobstructed view.
#3 – It’s Improved Design Is Both Beautiful and Safe
The Civic Hatchback is truly stunning with its simplified body design, but the design also serves a dual purpose – optimizing safety and performance. Honda redesigned the hatchback’s body structure using the automaker’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) that relies on high-strength steel, lightweight materials, and structural adhesives. These elements minimize the hatchback’s weight while boosting its rigidity and delivering improved ride quality and handling with stiffer structural supports and materials.
#4 – It’s So Much Fun to Drive
As you can see, the Civic Hatchback isn’t your standard sedan. Its sporty design matches the sporty powertrains that make it fun to drive whether you’re cruising the highway or driving in town. The LX and Sport trims are equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for more power, you’ll want to opt for the EX-L or Sport Touring, which are outfitted with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.
Honda redesigned its standard continuously variable transmission so that it now offers Normal and Eco drive modes on the LX and EX-L, while the Sport and Sport Touring trims see the addition of Sport mode. Eco mode optimizes the Civic’s efficiency while Sport mode alters the shift patterns and drive ratios for performance-focused handling. Sport mode is even more fun when you exchange the standard continuously variable transmission with Honda’s optional 6-speed manual transmission.
#5 – It’s Loaded with Tech
Honda keeps its promise to deliver the most technologically advanced Civic in history with the 2022 model. From the driver’s seat, you’ll find a 7.0-inch color instrument display that offers both a traditional and digital speedometer as well as a digital tachometer. The Sport Touring boasts a 10.2-inch instrument panel that’s not only full-color and high-definition but also gives you the option to use traditional gauges or a more modern, digital layout. From the screen, you can easily see your speed as well as a variety of data like music selection, mileage, safety alerts, and more.
Moving to the center of the hatchback, you’ll find the largest standard touchscreen in Civic history – a 7.0-inch color touchscreen display that’s home to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to sync your smartphone with the vehicle. The Sport Touring model upgrades this setup to a 9.0-inch color touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as wireless charging, which means you can leave your cords at home and reduce clutter in the cabin.
#6 – It Offers An Immersive Listening Experience
Honda knows the importance of delivering quality sound, and that’s why the automaker doesn’t skimp on the Civic Hatchback’s audio system. For 2022, Honda teamed up with Bose to custom engineer a premium sound system that aligns with the Civic’s newly designed interior. The result is a crisp and clear listening experience, whether you’re streaming your favorite playlist, listening to a podcast, or talking on the phone.
#7 – It’s Designed for Safety
The hatchback’s redesigned body structure works behind the scenes to ensure your safety, but that isn’t the only safety feature you’ll find on the 2022 model. The Civic is home to several active and passive safety features that give you confidence and peace of mind when you’re on the road. This extends from redesigned frontal airbags intended to minimize injuries to the exclusive Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist tools.
The Honda Sensing suite comes standard with a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Traffic Sign Recognition. These tools work as an extra set of eyes around the vehicle and alert you to potential collisions from the front, side, and rear. The Collision Mitigation Braking System can even bring the Civic to an emergency stop when a collision is imminent.
Honda added standard Traffic Jam Assist and optional Low-Speed Braking Control to the suite, but there are far more improvements to the system than these new tools. Instead of the combined radar and camera-based system in the 2021 model, the redesigned Civic Hatchback uses a single camera system. This means the suite has a wider and less obstructed field of vision while reducing complexity and expense. Thanks to advanced software, the system now responds and alerts you faster than ever.
Suwanee Drivers, It’s Time to Shop!
As you can see, there’s so much to love about the 2022 Civic Hatchback. Its sporty exterior design matches its responsive handling, while its clean lines and simplified interior give the Civic an airy feel, and everyone in the cabin can enjoy a better view of the road ahead and the world around them. When you add in the many tech features and the improvements to the Honda Sensing suite, it’s easy to see why Honda anticipates the 2022 Civic Hatchback to take the crown as the best version of the Civic date.
