The 2022 Honda Civic proves that an economy car is in demand and can surprise.
IS THE 2022 HONDA CIVIC A GOOD CAR? 6 PROS
So we collected and analyzed all the information about the latest sedan and here is our summary:
6 Pros of the 2022 Honda Civic
1. Exterior Design
A quick glance at the exterior of the 2022 Civic sedan might make you think you’re looking at a larger midsize Accord. Gone are many of the (and mostly fake) air intakes and sharp corners that covered the previous Civic’s sheet metal. It’s a clean and fresh design, and more exciting than before. Will the exterior of the mini-Accord be more attractive? Or has Honda gone overboard with the styling of the 2022 Civic? Here we are leaning towards the positive column.
2. Modern Interior With Retro Charm
There’s no question that Honda has done well with the Civic’s interior; it is spacious and comfortable. During our first trip, we noted that finally, the cabin was created by one enterprise, and not by various departments with communication problems.
This means the door trim blends well with the dashboard, and the materials used throughout have a consistent, premium feel. We’re especially big fans of the long strip of mesh trim that runs along the dash. This retro style is reminiscent of classic Honda cabs and elegantly hides the front air vents.
People love to buy SUVs because they offer amazing views of the road ahead. While the 2022 sedan sits low to the ground, it still has an excellent view of the outside world. The windshield is vertical, there’s plenty of headroom, and there are no massive pillars to block your view. Too many SUVs provide great visibility straight ahead, but terrible visibility to the sides and rear.
4. Engine Upgrade
The Civic’s base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that delivers 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. We tested a package equipped with an optional 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 180 hp. With. and 177 lb-ft of torque. This engine delivers excellent performance and works in harmony with Civic’s continuously variable automatic transmission.
5. More Safety Features
It’s always nice to see more safety features. For 2022, Honda has equipped the new Civic with affordable rear seat side airbags and an updated camera for active safety features such as forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking.
6. Still Hot
The 2022 Civic proves that sedans will remain in demand. Smooth to drive, nimble and packed with tech and safety features, the new Civic is hardly half-baked. The only thing it doesn’t have is the high suspension and increased cargo space of many small SUVs. Even here, however, the Civic does not disappoint.
