Here is an overview of the most significant changes to the new Honda Civic 2022.
The redesigned cabin is much more sober and elegant with a simplistic approach that will allow the driver to relax in comfort behind the wheel of their new Civic. Note the addition of a 10.2-inch fully digital instrumentation display behind the steering wheel in the Touring model, a very rare feature in this segment.

The central display is also redesigned with a faster processor. It measures 7.0 inches as standard while a larger 9.0-inch screen is available.
The exterior of the Honda Civic is also brand new. Sportier, it is based on a new chassis that is 8% and 13% stiffer in flexion and torsion to improve comfort. Thanks to this extended wheelbase, the interior volume increases considerably while the boot volume is fixed at 419 liters.
New security technologies
The Honda Civic 2022 will be safer, including the addition of revolutionary new front airbags that help protect the head in frontal angled collisions. In addition, the rear seats receive side cushions, and the Honda Sensing system adds the function of low-speed traffic monitoring. The blind spot monitoring system can check both sides unlike the current LaneWatch.
More economical engines
