Honda has revealed the complete details of the all-new 11th-gen Honda Civic Sedan, soon after releasing a single image last week. With a philosophy of ‘Man-Maximum, Machine Minimum,’ the 2022 Honda Civic looks cleaner and grown-up than its predecessor.
The new Civic sits on an updated platform. It gets a more rigid chassis, latest suspension, retuned steering, widened rear track and uses low rolling resistance wheel bearings to enhance fuel economy.
2022 Honda Civic Sedan comes with two engine options – a naturally aspirated 2-litre four-cylinder petrol and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol. Both engines offer a CVT gearbox as standard. The 2-litre petrol generates 160hp and 187Nm of peak torque, while the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol produces 182hp and 240Nm.
To speak about design, Honda Civic gets a mature look with fewer creases and cuts and is 1.3-inches longer than the existing model. Apart from that, the new sedan comes with LED headlamps on a sleek grille, fog lamps, a distinct three-box sedan design, and relocated wing mirrors.
At the rear, the 2022 Honda Civic gets a complete redesign. It receives wraparound new tail lamps and bumper design and will be made available with 16, 17, or 18-inch wheels.
On the inside, the new Honda Civic looks neat and uncluttered. It comes with a unique honeycomb pattern strip hiding the air-con vents. Besides, it gets a floating 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display, while you can find a 9-inch infotainment screen in the higher-spec model.
Both variants support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Touring trim also gets a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster, 12 speakers Bose audio unit, and Qi wireless charging facility.
The new Civic also gets remarkable safety features, such as a single camera, eight sonar sensors, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, front and rear false-start prevention, linear steering, and low-speed braking control. The car also gets rear-seat side airbags for the first time, increasing the total count of airbags to 10.
At present, the new Honda Civic is revealed for the North American market. Launching the same model in India still remains bleak, particularly after discontinuing the 10th-gen model because of less demand.
