Looking for an affordable high-performance, stylish car that functions just as well as a daily driver? Well, look no further than the new 2022 Honda Civic Si. Re-tuned for more efficient performance, the new Civic Si returns after a one-year hiatus with the same cabin improvements and tech upgrades as the redesigned 2022 Honda Civic but with exclusive exterior colors, styling and sports car performance. The 2022 Honda Civic Si boasts better handling, equipment and enjoyment than ever before.

Superior Performance

After missing the 2021 model year, the affordable high-performance Honda Civic Si returns for the 2022 model year. Like the rest of the new 2022 Honda Civic lineup, the new Civic Si debuts a slick new exterior style, upgraded technology features and a sleek cabin design. Exclusive to the 2022 Civic Si are sporty design cues and, of course, improved performance stats. Honda re-tuned the suspension for sharper handling, tighter cornering and improved drivability. 

Improvements to the new 2022 Honda Civic Si performance include:

  • Enhanced VTEC® 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with broader power curves
  • Reengineered 6-speed manual with 10% shorter shift throws
  • New rev-matching system from the Civic Type R
  • Achieve max torque of 192 lb-ft 300 rpm sooner
  • Lighter single-mass flywheel for quicker throttle response
  • 0.5-inch wider rear track and 1.4-inch longer wheelbase for better stability
  • Sport-tuned suspension with stiffer springs and bushings, more rigid dampers and new heavy-duty anti-roll bars
  • Optional summer tires

Satisfying Honda enthusiasts and driving purists, the new 2022 Civic Si is available only with a 6-speed manual transmission with three pedals and a stick shift. A new Individual drive mode joins Normal and Sport drive modes to provide a more customized driving experience. You designate the level of steering effort, engine response and choose the instrument panel display colors.

Sporty Design

The new Civic Si gets exterior style updates that not only make it appear sportier but actually improve aerodynamics and stability. An aggressive new front bumper joins a new honeycomb mesh grille and a redesigned rear bumper with new dual exhaust tips. A hidden front spoiler and rear spoiler in gloss-black improve aerodynamic performance and high speed stability. Gloss black exterior accents are found on the mirrors and window trim with exclusive matte black 18-inch wheels. Opt for the Civic Si-exclusive Blazing Orange Pearl exterior paint to really stand out from the crowd.

Inside, the streamlined cabin design echos that of the new 2022 Honda Civic, but with unique details only available in the new 2022 Honda Civic Si. More honeycomb mesh is found on the dashboard, complete with striking red accents and contrast stitching throughout the redesigned cabin. New Body Stabilizing sport seats feature built-in head restraints and shoulder and thigh supports.

Innovative Technology and Safety Features

The new Honda Civic Si gets a new 9-inch HD touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay® / Android Auto™ connectivity. Available in a single trim, the 2022 Civic Si features a premium 12-speaker Bose® Centerpoint 2 audio system with SurroundStage.

Safety also gets enhanced in the new 2022 Honda Civic Si. Honda improved its trademark Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure to perform better in the case of collision, specifically with larger vehicles. The 2022 Honda Civic Sedan and Hatchback recently received the 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating, the highest safety ranking a vehicle can receive from the IIHS. We expect the new Honda Civic Si to perform similarly in safety ratings, as it also includes the upgraded Honda Sensing® suite of safety features. 

Honda Sensing® in the 2022 Civic Si now includes Traffic Sign Recognition, driver attention monitor and new rear seat reminder. Software and processing enhancements join cutting-edge new safety technology included in the entire 2022 Honda Civic lineup. And a new single-camera system with a better field of view replaces the previous radar/camera system.
