The new Honda Civic in terms of design has received significant cosmetic updates on the exterior however, Honda has kept the design simplistic when compared to previous models. The design is almost identical to the Civic Concept showcased last year. For the new model the design changes includes a sleek small grille upfront flanked by slimmer LED headlights and gone are the glossy black accents from its predecessor.

Talking about the interior of the 2022 Civic, no much details has been revealed but a teaser sketch says a lot and what to expect. The dashboard layout is all new and features a tablet like touchscreen unit along with horizontal slats running across the dashboard which most probably will be the AC vents. There will also be a digital drivers display unit. The central console also features newly designed buttons and gear lever. For full details we have to wait till it full reveal later this month. As already said, technical specifications are yet to be shared later this month.
As of now no technical deatils are revealed but we expect the 2022 Honda Civic should get two engine options- a naturally aspirated 2.0L inline-four as the base engine and a more powerful turbocharged 1.5L inline-four. While base model should get automatic transmission with manual transmission to be offered in the higher-performance Si and Type R models coming out later. For more details stay tuned.

The 2022 Honda Civic sedan should go on sale globally by mid 2021 and the hatchback versions will follow after that. Once launched it will rivals up against the likes of Toyota Camry, Skoda Octavia and Hyundai Elantra and it should be priced slightly higher than the current Civic on sell. There’s no news yet that will the 11th Gen Hinda Civic will come to India or not as the current gen Honda civic was discontinued in December 2020 due to low sales.
