The Honda Civic has been available in the US for nearly 50 years and in that time has proven itself as a reliable sedan with more than 12 million sold. The all-new, redesigned 2022 Honda Civic builds on that tradition with a revitalized interior that delivers remarkable luxury and some of the best tech features on the road. Combine that with the two available engines, including a turbocharged option tuned for greater horsepower than before, and you have a car that perfectly hits every note. With many other manufacturers turning their backs on the sedan market, it is great to see that Honda not only continues to support it but is making one of their most-loved sedans even better.
Launching the eleventh generation, the 2022 Civic has a redesigned exterior and interior, so it really looks the part as an all-new model. It is a gorgeous design that has a sleek and sporty feel to it while still maintaining the kind of reliability and performance we have come to expect from the Civic name. The available turbocharged engine delivers 180 hp, up from last year's model, while the standard 2.0L engine is more fuel-efficient than ever before. Four different trims give you a wide range of options to choose from, so you can get the performance and interior features you want in your sedan.
Speaking of interior features, the inside of the Civic has been refreshed for the 2022 model year, with fantastic options throughout. For the first time ever on the Civic, there is now an all-digital 10-inch LCD instrument display available. Further, a 7-inch infotainment screen is standard, with a 9-inch HD display also available. You can get a wireless charging pad, a Bose premium sound system, and much more inside, while the updated Honda Sensing system delivers an impressive suite of standard safety features.

It can be easy to think that impressive engines are only found in high-performance sports cars or powerful pickup trucks. In reality, however, you should get a great engine in any kind of vehicle, since it is the heart of the car and so much depends on it. While the engines in the 2022 Honda Civic are similar to those in the previous model year, they have been updated for better performance and improved efficiency.
The standard engine in the all-new Civic is a 2.0L I-4 that provides you with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired with a standard continuously variable transmission and available paddle shifters. If you want improved performance, then there is an available 1.5L turbocharged I-4 engine that delivers 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, which is a small horsepower bump over last year's turbocharged engine. Both options are available with remote engine start and give you an excellent driving experience.
In terms of fuel economy, both engines have been improved over last year, though your fuel efficiency will depend on the trim level you choose. The starting trim gets an estimated 31 MPG in the city, 40 MPG on the highway, and 35 MPG combined.** If you choose the more performance-focused engine, then you can get an estimated 33 MPG in the city, 42 MPG on the highway, and 36 MPG combined.** No matter which engine and configuration you choose, however, you get great fuel efficiency that keeps you on the road longer.
Although we support the idea of never judging a book by its cover, we still think it is okay to consider the exterior of a vehicle when looking for the right one. It is why we are so excited about the updated and redesigned exterior of the 2022 Honda Civic, which looks gorgeous. The sleek new style of this sedan is a reminder that functionality does not have to exist without form, offering improved performance through its aerodynamic styling. It features a lower, wider stance that helps with handling, and its expanded greenhouse area looks great and gives you better visibility.
Speaking of functionality, LED headlights are standard on every model, with dual-low-beam lights that help illuminate the road in front of you so that night-driving is even safer. The redesigned roofline features a swooping design that has clearly been inspired by fastback models, giving it a sporty look across every trim. LED taillights are not only dramatic and stylish but ensure other drivers can easily see you and safely remain aware of your every move. If you like a more open exterior, then the available one-touch power moonroof is perfect for letting in some fresh air and enjoying your drive even more.
Since most of your time with your vehicle will be spent with you inside, driving it, it is always important to look closely at the interior features. Standard and available features will depend on which trim you look at, of course, so keep that in mind when shopping for a car. Let us take a look at what comes standard on the 2022 Honda Civic, as well as what you get on its highest trim, the Touring.
The standard Civic LX comes with automatic climate control, cruise control, and an illuminated steering wheel with mounted controls. It features push-button start, manually-adjustable front seats, and fold-down rear seats. You get a 4-speaker sound system, standard, with a 7-inch infotainment display, and support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Bluetooth streaming support is standard, and you get a 7-inch instrument display as part of the driver cluster that features a physical speedometer and other digital meters.
Looking at the top-trim Honda Civic Touring, you get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, along with dual-zone climate control and an automatic-dimming rearview mirror. The Touring also features heated front seats, a rear-seat center armrest, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with a power front-passenger seat too. You get a 9-inch customizable infotainment display with the Touring, along with wireless support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus HD radio and Navigation. The Touring also features a wireless phone charger for compatible devices, a 12-speaker Bose premium sound system, and an all-digital 10-inch driver information display.
When shopping for a vehicle, nothing is more important than how well it can protect you and your loved ones on the road. For decades, Honda has been an industry leader in terms of safety features and how well their cars are designed for safe driving. The 2022 Honda Civic is certainly no exception to this and includes some of the best safety features available anywhere.
One of the things we love the most about the all-new Civic is that almost every safety feature it has to offer comes standard on every model. You get the updated Honda Sensing suite of tech features standard, no matter which trim you choose. This includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow. You also get a Lane Keeping Assist System, Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning on every model. Other great features that come standard on every model include auto high-beam headlights, a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, and vehicle stability assist with traction control.
You get a comprehensive airbag package, including front and rear-seat airbags, along with a seatbelt reminder and Rear Seat Reminder standard on the 2022 Civic. There are two available safety features that do not come standard: a Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor and Low-Speed Braking Control. While these are certainly great features that help make the incredibly safe 2022 Honda Civic even safer, the standard systems and features are still impressive. We love that they include a number of things that are typically only offered on high trims when you look at other manufacturers.
