The All-New 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback

The new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback gets a striking new design with more user-friendly features and plenty of power to create the most fun-to-drive Civic hatchback yet. Part of the 11th-generation Civic release, the 2022 Civic hatchback has two new engine options, and a manual transmission is now available on multiple trims!

All-New Design

For 2022, the new Honda Civic hatchback gets updated with sporty Euro-centric styling and a coupe-like design. Less extreme than the 10th-generation Civic, the 2022 Civic hatchback is crafted from a new composite hatch structure to create a Civic with cleaner lines and less weight. It has two new exterior color options – Boost Blue and Smoky Mauve Pearl, and distinctive styling to differentiate it from the sedan since the hatch is less pronounced. The new tailgate is wider and lower, making it easier to load and unload your things.

Inside, the new Honda Civic hatchback has greater visibility thanks to windshield pillars that are 2 inches farther back. A new, larger rear window also helps the cabin to feel airy and open. Like the new Civic sedan, the 2022 Civic hatchback has a sleek interior design with clean lines and less clutter than the previous iteration. The new ergonomic Body Stabilizing Seat is paired with the latest Honda technology to create an intuitive driving experience. Those in the back seat will enjoy 1.4 inches of extra legroom.

The Latest Technology

The new 2022 Honda Civic hatchback features tons of standard technology features and even more advanced upgrades. The standard 7-inch media touchscreen – the largest standard screen size in a Civic ever – features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration with wireless connectivity available on higher trims with the 9-inch touchscreen. You still get physical volume and tuning knobs to make the infotainment easier and less distracting to use.

Available tech in the new Honda Civic hatchback includes a Qi wireless charger and Bose® premium audio system. The 2022 Civic hatchback is available in four trims – LX, Sport, EX-L, and Sport Touring

Improved Performance

New for the 2022 model year, the Honda Civic Hatchback offers two engine options: a naturally-aspirated 2.0-L with 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque (EX, Sport) or a turbocharged 1.5-L with 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque (EX-L, Sport Touring). If you love to drive, the manual option in the 2022 Civic hatchback is made for you. The 6-speed manual transmission is available in the new Civic Hatchback Sport with the 2.0-L engine or the Civic Hatchback Sport Touring with the 1.5-L turbocharged engine. The improved manual transmission is even sportier than previous Civic offerings thanks to shorter shift throws with more rigidity. The Civic Hatchback Sport Touring also includes Sport drive mode, in addition to Normal and Eco, to give you a more thrilling drive. 

Adding to the European feel, the new Honda Civic hatchback has a re-tuned chassis, suspension and steering to give you more control, better handling and a smoother, more comfortable ride. It also helps to make the new hatchback the most exciting Honda Civic to drive yet.

Advanced Safety

Of course, Honda also made the new 2022 Civic hatchback the safest yet with new and improved safety and driver-assist features. From advanced airbags to improved ACE™ body structure and even more Honda Sensing® safety features, the new Honda Civic is leading the pack in safety. The new Honda Civic hatchback utilizes a new single-camera system and updated software to better identify vehicles, pedestrians and road signs. Traffic Jam Assist is new for 2022 as part of the standard Honda Sensing® suite, while Low-Speed Braking Control is now included in the Civic Hatchback Sport Touring model.
