Performance Comparison:

The 2022 Honda Civic offers two fantastic engine options. You will find a powerful 1.5-litre direct-injected turbocharged inline-four that pumps out 180 horsepower and a healthy 177 lb-ft of torque. Honda designed the turbo to deliver power in a way that not only offers exhilaration but efficiency. The turbocharger is pushing to go as low as 1,700 rpm and pushes boost all the way to the red line. The standard engine option is a tried and tested 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder that produces 158 horsepower. Both engines are paired to a refined and best in the industry continuously variable transmission (CVT). The infinite gears help to offer a responsive and fun drive anytime you are out on a new adventure.

Design Comparison:

The exterior design language for the 2022 Honda Civic is beautiful in so many ways. At the front, the Civic boasts a wide fascia with large headlights and an enormous air dam. The available LED headlights and fog lights allow the driver to see in any driving condition. The side profile doesn't look like a small car as the new design language makes the Civic show like a large sedan. The beautiful optional aluminum alloy wheels add another layer of personality. At the rear, the Civic houses large taillights that wrap around from the hatch to the rear quarter panel; this showcases a wide stance.

Step inside and experience the next generation of Honda. The 2022 Civic has been completely redesigned from the ground up. The interior features cleaner lines and a dashboard with a full-width honeycomb-patterned mesh design that not only looks elegant but hides the air vents. The larger interior also allows for a wider console, a deeper bin, and all-around extra cargo space. The Civic is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition, and it clearly shows.
