Freshly Styled Exterior

Taking multiple cues from European-styled sportbacks, you’ll be forgiven if on first glance you mistake this devilishly slight hatchback as a coupe instead. It’s got all 5 doors, but with an aerodynamic build that highlights its sport coupe-like appeal. The CivicHatchback easily sets itself apart from its Sedan brethren thanks to a honeycomb grille, easily identifiable when you first set eyes on it from the font. There’s even new paint colours like Boost Blue Pearl and Smoky Mauve Pearl to further set yourself apart.

Versatile Sport Interior

The Civic Hatchback’s interior has been redesigned with a new two-fold focus: to both simplify it and also to create more versatility. This new design was all made in accordance with those young, active drivers who need their vehicle to adapt to their many needs in modern life. Thus produced is a straight-forward interior that’s still high on the sport style, but one that is equally suitable for gear, passengers or both. This all adds up to the 2022 Civic Hatchback having the largest backseat in its model year history, ready to graciously welcome all those onboard.

Performance & Engine Options

Previously for 2021 there were only two trims available with the same 1.5-litre, 16-valve, Direct Injection, DOHC, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, but 2022 sees the addition of a new base trim and engine. The new LX trim comes standard with the 2.0-litre, 16-valve, Port Injection, DOHC, i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine, getting up to 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. A short-throw 6-speed manual transmission is available on any of the 3 trims, further representing the Civic Hatchback’s propensity for slick sport performance.

Tech & Safety Features

Honda and safety are synonymous, and the Civic being one the landmark models of the brand means only the latest and greatest safety tech will be found inside to aid your drive. Next-generation driver and front passenger airbags, alongside the Honda Sensing system (adding Traffic Jam Assist) highlight the Civic’s modern blend of safety and tech. Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist have been updated to provide smoother functionality. Even small touches like a rear seat reminder and rear seatbelt reminder have been added, and standardized across the line.

All these many changes add up to an all-new 2022 Civic Hatchback that is both familiar yet completely revitalized for those seeking a youthful, fun and sporty vehicle.
