Honda Civic Sedan Exterior

Athletic Styling & Performance

Featuring an exterior that’s both bolder and more sophisticated than prior generations, the 2022 Honda Civic adheres to the original Honda design principles of “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” (or “M/M”). This athletic appearance is complemented by a lower beltline and windshield pillars that have been shifted rearward to improve outward visibility. Boosting its handling capabilities, the Civic is engineered with a wide rear track and a confident rear shoulder line that adds to its composed on-road stance.

Beneath the hood of the Civic Sedan lies a standard 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine producing 158 horsepower 138 lb-ft of torque paired to a responsive continuously variable transmission (CVT). You can personalize your drive even further with optional selectable drive models such as Eco, Normal, and Sport. Step up to the optional turbocharged 1.5-liter engine to enjoy 180 horsepower and quicker acceleration. Helping the 11th generation Civic Sedan be the most nimble and agile ever built is a lightweight aluminum front subframe paired with a wide rear track.

Honda Civic Sedan Interior

Driver-Focused Interior

Achieving harmony between comfort and connectivity, the driver-oriented cockpit of the Honda Civic Sedan serves as your command center as you hit the highway. Entry-level Civic Sedan trims include a 7-inch color touchscreen as standard equipment, the largest display screen in the model’s history. Using specialized Honda Body Stabilizing technology, the Civic also comes equipped with unique seats that are designed to maximize comfort on long-distance drives. Through meticulous attention to detail, the layout of the cabin features a minimalist structure that adds a feeling of spaciousness. Drivers can take advantage of a variety of ways to listen to their favorite songs by using a phone, radio, Bluetooth® or USB media, or a connected smartphone for use with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Another Civic-first feature offered inside the cabin is an available Bose audio system featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose SurroundStage digital signal processing.

Groundbreaking Safety

Raising the bar for safety performance among small cars, the Honda Civic Sedan comes standard with an impressive array of groundbreaking safety features designed to protect both drivers and passengers. Debuting for the first time in a passenger vehicle, innovative frontal airbags found inside the Civic benefit from specialized technology to better control head motions in certain types of crashes. Also included as standard across the model range is Honda Sensing®. Standard features included in this collection are Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and many more. Every Civic Sedan is also engineered with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, further improved for superior stiffness and protection in the event of an accident.
