About the Honda Civic Sedan

Honda Civic Sedan Features

Honda Civic Sedan Exterior

Athletic Styling & Performance

More upscale and expressive than its predecessor, the 2022 Honda Civic Sedan adheres to the original Honda design approach of “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” (or “M/M”). This striking design features a lower beltline and windshield pillars shifted further rearward to improve outward visibility. A wider rear track and a more confident rear shoulder line help emphasize its poised, athletic stance on the road.

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). Available driver-selectable drive modes include Eco, Normal, and Sport — allowing drivers to further personalize their experience behind the wheel. You can also step up to an optional turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that boasts 180 horsepower. A wider rear track combined with a lighter aluminum front subframe helps make this the most agile and fun-to-drive Civic Sedan ever.

Honda Civic Sedan Interior

Driver-Focused Interior

Crafted with an emphasis on comfort and connectivity, the ergonomic interior of the Honda Civic Sedan places all vital controls and switches within arm’s reach. Entry-level trims will come standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen, the largest standard screen in Civic history. Specialized Honda Body Stabilizing seat designs help support the body while enhancing comfort on long drives. Design changes have allowed for a more simplified layout of the dashboard, adding a more modern yet contemporary feel to the interior. Listening to your favorite songs is easier than ever thanks to the ability to use your phone, radio, Bluetooth® or USB media, or a connected smartphone for use with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. You can also opt for a Civic-first Bose audio system featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose SurroundStage digital signal processing.

Groundbreaking Safety

Setting a new benchmark for small-car safety performance, the Honda Civic Sedan is engineered with a segment-leading collection of groundbreaking safety features. A world’s first application, both frontal airbags inside the Civic use specialized technology to better control head motions in certain types of crashes. Honda Sensing® is also included as standard across the model range. Standard equipment includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™
(CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and several more. All Civic models also benefit from the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, further enhanced for greater stiffness and protection in the event of a collision.
