The All-New 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback


The all-new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback pairs an outstanding history with a modern flair. This 11th generation Civic boasts a range of new features and tech upgrades.

The standard Civic has everything that made it a top 3 US bestseller for five decades. It offers safety, reliability, and well-curated features. With its athletic handling and excellent fuel economy, you can go further while enjoying smooth ride quality.

For buyers who want a tailored experience, the 2022 Civic hatchback offers three additional trims. There's an option for every lifestyle and driver. Today, we're breaking down every detail behind the new Civic's quality and value.


Overview: 2022 Civic Hatchback Specs

For all its flair, the all-new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback still delivers the right fundamentals.

The 5-seater cabin is spacious enough for family life and the daily school run. It's packed with enough infotainment features for cross-country trips. Even then, clean lines and high-quality materials keep it chic and modern.

Beyond the aesthetics, the 2022 Civic combines responsive handling with a well-balanced ride. It's the smaller, nimble version of the award-winning Sedan, and just as athletic on the road.


What's New: Redesigned For The Modern Driving

Aesthetically, the hatchback's redesign gives it a more refined look and feel. Honda upscaled the body with a more couple-like roofline, inspired by European sportsbacks. The new tailgate makes cargo loading easier with a lower, wider design.

The interior boasts clean lines and quality materials, but subtle changes make it more practical too.

Wider sightlines and a body-stabilizing driver's seat improve the ergonomics to reduce strain. The 9-inch color touch-screen is one of the 2022 Civic's best tech upgrades. Smart shortcuts, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration give the infotainment system even more functionality.


Performance: How Fast Is The 2022 Civic Hatchback?

The 2022 Honda Civic hatchback comes with the same powertrain as the 2021 version, at least in the standard model. The 2.0-liter Inline 4 engine produces 158-hp for powerful acceleration. In keeping with the Civic's tradition, the 11th generation model comes in front-wheel drive but offers two transmission options.

Drivers can opt for continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or a six-speed manual to complete the powertrain. While the former is the standard for both Civics, the six-speed transmission is exclusive to the hatchback.

Powerful acceleration gives it a quick start, but it's the excellent fuel economy that truly rounds out the performance. Each model is fitted with a 12.3-gallon fuel tank, including the upper trims. The standard hatchback offers 28 mpg in the city, 31 mpg on the highway, and 37 mpg on average.


Features: Designed For Safety, Curated For Drivers

The all-new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback is packed with a good selection of driver assistance features. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded it a five-star overall safety rating.

Standard safety features in the 2022 Honda Civic hatchback include:

  • An updated Honda Sensing suite
  • Vehicle-stability assist
  • LED exterior lights
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Automated emergency braking


The All-New 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback Trim Levels

LX Trim

As the base trim, the LX provides a solid foundation for the other three levels. Beyond the upgraded features mentioned above, it's worth exploring its versatility in detail. 60/40 fold-down rear seats make the most of an already spacious cabin, while heated front seats offer warmth behind the wheel.

Heated power door mirrors maintain visibility in difficult conditions, as do the LED headlights (high and low beam). The LX comes standard with Sport Mode for drivers who want to maximize the Inline 4 engine's performance. Switch over for more responsive acceleration to complement the LX's great handling.

Standout Features:

  • 11th Generation Upgrades: Fall in love with the next generation of an all-time classic
  • Multi-angle Camera: Navigate tight spaces with a rearview camera and dynamic guidelines


Sport Trim

For built-in performance, look no further than The New 2022 Honda Civic Sport. This trim produces 180-hp thanks to its 1.5-liter turbocharged engine upgrade, complete with Direct Injection. Mounted paddle shifters give the leather-wrapped steering wheel a racing feel while keeping the driver's side comfortable.

Standout Features:

  • 18-inch Alloy Wheels: An exterior upgrade to add even more curb appeal
  • Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock: Automated security for hands-free access


EX-L Trim

Intelligent and sophisticated, the 2022 Honda Civic EX-L pairs the Sport's performance with high-end tech upgrades. Push-button start only adds to the convenience of the auto-lock feature. Combined, they make it possible to drive the EX-L anywhere without taking the key out of your pocket.

The 17-inch alloy wheels come with eye-catching Berlina Black Inserts. The final result: a trim that can turn heads even in a parking bay.

Standout Features:

  • One-touch Power Moonroof: Add visibility and natural light with the brush of a finger
  • Hyundai Sensing Safety Systems: Upgrade to a full suite of driver-assistive technologies


Sport Touring Trim

As the highest available configuration, the Sport Touring trim represents the best of the 11th generation Honda Civic. Premium leather fittings, automatic climate control, and power front seats give the cabin a cozy, luxurious feel. The Sport Touring still knows how to excite, though.

It comes with a 12-speaker Bose Premium Sound System and subwoofer for the best audio yet. With Honda's Satellite-Linked Navigation System, the infotainment system ends up being as practical as it is potent.

Drivers can control everything from the 9-inch color touchscreen. A wireless charging port works well with the Apple, Android, and Bluetooth connectivity features. For all of its tech-heavy-upgrades, the system remains intuitive with accessible controls.

Standout Features:

  • 10.2-inch Driver Information Interface: The largest interface yet for easy monitoring while driving
  • 3-Mode Drive System: Effortlessly switch between Normal, Sport, and ECON driving settings
