Honda has officially launched the 2022 Civic, now in its 11th generation. The all-new 11th generation Honda Civic gets a new look inside and out, high-tech upgrades, a more powerful turbo VTEC engine, and additional safety features. It comes in three variants: S, V, and RS variant.
The Civic is now 9mm longer and its wheelbase is longer as well by 37mm compared to its predecessor. It also follows a more sedan-like shape. The front has a pair of newly shaped headlights that either house full LEDs or projector halogens. Daytime running lights are standard across all models. Optional LED fog lights are also available for the V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING and the RS Turbo CVT Honda SENSING. In addition, the higher RS variant has exclusive features such as a shark fin antenna, and side mirrors equipped with lane-watching cameras.
It comes with either 16-inch rims on the S variant, and 17-inch alloy rims on the V variant, and 18-inch matte black wheels on the RS.
The interior now features a minimalist cabin. It is less cluttered with physical buttons, and the aircon vents are hidden behind the unique dashboard panel. Either a 7-inch or a 9-inch touchscreen display that is compatible with Apple Carplay or Android Auto is present in the Civic. Depending on the variant, you can get 4 to 8 speakers. The RS variant comes with a 12-speaker Bose sound system.
