2022 Honda Civic Prices, Reviews, Photos & More | Kelly BlueBook (2023)

price:The 2022 Honda Civic LX sedan starts at $22,350. Prices for the new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback range from $23,250 to $29,850.

Since 1973, the Honda Civic has been one of the three best-selling passenger cars in the United States, with more than 12 million units sold. Launched in 2015, the current Civic is a multiple KBB Best Buy Award winner and remains the most popular vehicle among first-time buyers in the United States.

With this all-new 2022 Honda Civic, the company says it's revisiting some of the "timeless design philosophies" of previous Civics. Like the low bonnet, front fenders and beltline, creating a spacious greenhouse and excellent outward visibility.

The Civic's revised front-wheel-drive (FWD) chassis is stiffer than before, and the wheelbase has been increased by 1.4 inches, contributing to a roomier rear seat and a smoother ride. While the new Civic hatchback could have looked more like a wagon, Honda gave it a coupe-like roofline while still retaining plenty of rear headroom.

The two engines are a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 hp and a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharger with 180 hp. Both have a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

However, the 2022 Honda Civic Sport and Touring hatchback trims are optionally available with a 6-speed manual transmission.

EPA fuel economy is improved compared to last year's Civic. Additionally, Honda says the suspension has been tuned for both sport and comfort, with upgrades to improve steering response and reduce jolt on rough surfaces like railroad crossings. At the rear, the tracks have been widened by half an inch to increase stability, while new bushings significantly reduce noise and vibration entering the five-seat cabin.

The Civic hatchback is based on the same chassis, but is 4.9 centimeters shorter at the rear.

The sedan-only 2022 Honda Civic Si features a 200-horsepower version of the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder. The enthusiast engine is mated exclusively to a six-speed short-throw manual transmission paired with a helical-lock front differential, and the chassis comes with sport-tuned suspension and available summer tires. The Si's front springs are 8 percent stiffer than those of the regular Civic sedan, while the rear springs are a whopping 60 percent stiffer.

With its updated exterior, upgraded architecture, and thoroughly modern safety and convenience features, the highly refined 2022 Honda Civic looks poised to continue the compact Honda's impressive sales legacy.

The 2022 Honda Civic sedan and Civic Si are manufactured in Alliston, Ontario, Canada. The 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback is manufactured in Greensburg, Indiana.

The sportiest version of the new Honda Civic, the track-ready Type R, will arrive in 2022. Like the Si, it's only available with a manual transmission.

Honda Civic 2022 prices

As an LX model, the 2022 Honda Civic sedan has a suggested retail price (MSRP) of $22,350. The Civic LX sedan, powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter engine, is expected to account for approximately 30 percent of Civic sedan sales.

Next up is the Sport, another Civic sedan with a 2.0-liter engine. The Civic Sport starts at $23,300 with 18-inch wheels and a few other key sporty elements. Honda expects the Sport to be the sales leader, with about 40 percent of Civic sales.

The Civic sedan gets a 1.5-liter turbo engine - with even more powerUMore fuel efficient than 2.0-liter engines – starting with Civic EX. The Civic EX is expected to make up about 20 percent of the portfolio, with an MSRP of $25,350.

I drive a 2022 Honda Civic

KBB tested a station wagon and a sports car, both sedans.

Visibility is excellent thanks to the low dashboard and wide windshield pillars. Plus, with Touring-trimmed leather upholstery, digital gauges, a 9-inch infotainment system, and a 12-speaker Bose sound system, this compact Honda feels like it's taken its quality to the next level.

The 1.5 liter turbo engine is great. It is quiet and smooth, and the power (180 hp) comes in a pleasant linear fashion. You can turn off the fuel-saving stop/restart function, and the continuously variable transmission (CVT) automatic transmission is one of the best we've tested. It exhibits none of the whirring common to early CVTs, and the paddle shifters are there when you're in a sporty mood.

Sport mode, which can be selected using a toggle switch on the center console, makes the new Civic more lively and responsive. In Sport mode, engine speed increases at all speeds compared to Eco and Normal modes.

In a way, we think of the roomier, new 2022 Honda Civic as the anti-SUV. It is functional and there is enough room inside for four tall adults and a child sitting between the rear seats. It also has a trunk of 14.8 cubic meters, which compares favorably with the Toyota Corolla's 13.1 cubic meters.

But at the same time, the new Honda Civic feels low, wide and playful, eager to turn just like expensive German cars do. The new Civic loves to drive on twisty roads with good steering feel and excellent grip, but without any noticeable compromises in ride quality.

The same goes for the new 2022 Honda Civic Sport, which shares suspension tuning with the Touring but has a naturally aspirated 158-hp 2.0-liter engine.

Although the Civic Sport isn't as quick as the Touring, the engine has a higher redline (6,750 rpm compared to the Touring's 6,500 rpm). The Civic Sport also impresses with its sporty look and grippy fabric on the seats. The leather-covered steering wheel and shift lever further emphasize the sporty style.

Like the Touring, the Honda Civic Sport is quiet, comfortable and refined, but its black window frames, mirrors, badging and 18-inch alloy wheels should appeal to a younger crowd.

KBB also tested two 2022 Civic hatchback models, the Sonic Gray Pearl Sport Touring model with a six-speed manual transmission and the Boost Blue Pearl Sport Touring model with a CVT.

These new Indiana-built Civic hatchback models have the same light, solid and nimble feel as their Civic sedan siblings, but the complimentary six-speed manual transmission deserves a special mention. First, because it is available. Second, because it's too good to be true. The Civic's shift clutch is precise, with short throws, and the lightweight clutch is easy to adjust. While we know people who travel on busy highways may opt for the automatic CVT transmission, we appreciate that Honda continues to offer a manual transmission in the Civic.

While some may think that manual transmissions are outdated, Honda's six-speed transmission is a good example, and we all know that manual transmissions allow the driver to be more involved in the art of driving. It even has an auto stop/restart function that shuts down the engine at traffic lights to save fuel. As soon as the clutch pedal is pressed, the engine restarts immediately.

On the other hand, the CVT in the Civic hatchback has its own appeal. It can be in "Econ" or "Normal" mode, where the transmission smoothly and efficiently finds the right gear ratio for the 1.5-liter turbocharged, smooth 4-cylinder engine. At low engine speeds, a slight hum may appear. In Sport mode, the levers are sharper and the engine revs are kept slightly higher for more direct throttle response.

You can't go wrong with any Civic transmission. But the manual can't quite match the CVT's stellar EPA fuel economy numbers. Still, with either transmission, the Civic hatchback feels like a Civic sedan from the driver's seat, but has more rear cargo space (24.5 cubic feet) than many small crossover SUVs. It becomes more spacious when the rear seats are folded down. As a result, the Civic hatchback is more practical than the sedan, and even has a retractable trunk lid to keep things away from prying eyes.

Car comfort

Honda has simplified the interior of the 2022 Civic. The airy cockpit is dominated by clean straight lines, which offer excellent outward visibility and an instrument panel with a digital tachometer and analog speedometer.

However, the Civic Touring's instrument cluster is a customizable, fully digital 10.2-inch LCD screen. It can look traditional, with round gauges and the requisite hands, or very modern, with bar graphs surrounding the center of the color screen. This central area is the driver's information center, displaying everything from the current music selection or trip computer information to the status of the various safety and driver assistance systems.

The interior of the new Honda Civic sedan and hatchback is modest but handsome. One of the most striking elements is the honeycomb metal mesh strip that stretches across the entire dashboard. It provides a splitter for the audio, information display and climate control, while also hiding vents that would otherwise spoil the look of the dashboard.

As for the seats in the new Civic, Honda says they are based on a new-generation frame that provides sufficient support while improving passenger comfort on long journeys. Our KBB employees also agree with this.

The Civic sedan has a trunk volume of 14 cubic feet. The hatchback Civic has 24.5 cubic feet behind the rear seats, which can be split 60/40 and folded forward for even more cargo capacity. The hood opening is 1.6 inches wider than the previous generation Civic hatchback.

Like the 2022 Honda Civic sedan, the new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback is available with a standard 7-inch touchscreen or an optional 9-inch display with wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.

The new Civic Si gets its sporty character with contoured sports seats with built-in headrests and increased shoulder and thigh support. The front of the seat cushion is raised 0.5 inches to reduce leg fatigue on long rides.

In addition to sport pedals and red stitching, the Si trim has a 7-inch color instrument panel with a digital tachometer on the left and a physical speedometer on the right. The Si also comes standard with a 12-speaker Bose audio system; Honda says it's the best factory system in Civic Si history.


The exterior of the 2022 Honda Civic has undergone a dramatic transformation. Some might say this new Civic looks like a baby Accord. One thing is for sure: the simplistic yet refined body lines create a compact sedan that looks more refined. The nose is blunt for pedestrians, with built-in shock-absorbing areas.

The Civic's A-pillars have been moved back two inches, making the hood longer and the windshield flatter. Slim windshield mounts and a low hood give this Honda an airy, open cabin reminiscent of early Civics, while creating a dash-to-ratio ratio like a rear-wheel drive car.

Similarly, the headlights and taillights have received a minimalistic treatment, which helps to emphasize the calmer appearance of the new Civic. The bold character line for the new Civic goes a step further, visually lowering the waistline while improving outward visibility, especially for those in the rear seats.

The new Civic Si has practical aerodynamic support. These include a hidden front spoiler and a gloss black rear spoiler, both of which increase downforce at high speeds. Si mirrors and window frames also have a glossy black finish. The rear of the Si features a pair of large oval tailpipes.

According to Honda, the exterior of the new Civic hatchback is inspired by the design of European hatchback models. The slightly concave, coupé profile of the mesh grille shows us that the new Civic hatchback has significantly less rear overhang (by 4.9 inches).

This elegant roof line is achieved with a lightweight composite cover and revised hinges that reduce the height of the roof by almost 5 cm. The Center High Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) spans the width of the hatchback and helps emphasize the wide rear footprint of the new Civic Hatchback.

To improve outward visibility, the 2022 Civic hatchback has larger side windows and smaller corner windows on the C-pillars. They add to the airy feel of the Civic Hatchback's rear seats, which offer 1.4 inches more legroom than the previous Civic Hatchback.

The 2022 Honda Civic hatchback offers two new exterior colors: Boost Blue Pearl and Smokey Mauve Pearl. In addition, the Civic Si can be ordered in a unique bright color called 'Blazing Orange Pearl'.

Engine and gearbox

For the 2022 Honda Civic, buyers can choose between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the LX and Sport or a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder in the EX and Touring.

The 2.0-liter engine is last year's engine and develops 158 hp at 6500 rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4200 rpm. The turbocharged 1.5 produces 180 hp at 6000 rpm and 177 Nm of torque between 1700 rpm and 4500 rpm.

Both engines are mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission, but the CVT in the Sport and Touring has a larger torque converter to better handle the extra torque. Sport and Touring models also come with paddle shifters and three selectable driving modes: Eco, Normal and Sport.

The new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback has the same power level, but both engines are available with an optional six-speed manual transmission.

Both engines are also economical. The 2022 Honda Civic EX sedan with the 1.5 engine is the best of the bunch, with an EPA fuel economy rating of 33 mpg city/42 mpg highway/36 mpg combined. The most fuel-efficient new 2.0-liter Honda Civic is the LX sedan, which is EPA-rated at 31 mpg city/40 mpg city/35 mpg highway.

Low-drag brake calipers, low-friction wheel bearings and increased CVT efficiency contribute to the new Civic's excellent fuel economy. Further efficiency improvements include a new automatic stop/start system and a free-flow catalytic converter.

The new Honda Civic Si gets a better version of its 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Maximum torque is 192 lb-ft. It spins at just 1800 rpm for better cornering ability. Peak power remains constant at 200 horsepower from 6,000 rpm to 6,500 rpm (red line).

KBB evaluation and rating methodology for vehicles

Our expert reviews are based on driving hours and numbers, so you can be sure you're choosing the car that's right for you. We thoroughly test and analyze every new SUV, sedan, truck or minivan sold in the US and compare it to the competition. When all the dust settles, we'll have reviews.

Every time a new vehicle or a new generation of an existing vehicle comes out, we need a new assessment. Additionally, we re-evaluate these ratings when a new generation car gets a mid-cycle refresh - basically a minor facelift, usually functional and technical, for a car that's in the middle of its production cycle (usually around 2-3 years). ).refresh.

Instead of randomly drawing numbers from scratch or from a meaningless list, KBB editors rank vehicles based on the class they belong to. Before a car gets a KBB rating, it has to prove that it's better (or worse) than other cars in its competition because it's trying to get you to spend money on a purchase or lease.

Our editors drive and live in certain vehicles. We ask the right questions about the interior, exterior, engine and powertrain, ride and handling, features, comfort and, of course, price. Does it serve the purpose it was built for? (Whether the goal is to efficiently commute around town, protect your family, feel like you've reached the top - or are on your way - or feel like you've succeeded) You've finally found the right lifestyle partner for you. )

We conduct daily tests on every vehicle we test (parking, lane changing, reversing, luggage space and loading) and essential tests (acceleration, braking, handling, interior quietness and comfort, build quality, material quality and reliability).
