About the Honda Civic Sedan

The Honda Civic has the honor of being the longest-running nameplate in the history of the Honda brand and for good reason. In fact, it’s America’s #1 model when it comes to first-time buyers. Now in its 11th generation, over 12 million Civic vehicles have been sold since 1973. Truly a testament to its popularity with drivers of all ages, the Civic Sedan now proudly sports an exterior appearance that’s equal parts athletic and modern. Step inside the cabin and you’ll find a driver-focused interior that’s surrounded with state-of-the-art tech features like standard Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™ integration. Drivers can choose from two individual engines, each offering its own combination of power and efficiency to suit your needs. Since even the most experienced drivers can use some help from time to time, every Civic Sedan comes standard with the innovative Honda Sensing® collection of groundbreaking driver-assist technologies.

Honda Civic Sedan Features

Honda Civic Sedan Exterior

Athletic Styling & Performance

Sporting a look that’s bolder and more upscale than prior generations, the 2022 Honda Civic Sedan follows the original Honda design ethos of “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” (or “M/M”). Its athletic new look is enhanced by a lower beltline and windshield pillars that have been shifted rearward to improve outward visibility. Improving handling, the Civic features a wider rear track and a more confident rear shoulder line that highlights its composed stance on the road.

Standard power for the Civic Sedan comes in the form of a standard 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine producing 158 horsepower 138 lb-ft of torque paired to a responsive continuously variable transmission (CVT). Optional driver-selectable drive modes include Eco, Normal, and Sport — allowing you to personalize your experience behind the wheel. Upgrade to the available turbocharged 1.5-liter engine to experience 180 horsepower and quicker acceleration. Helping the 11th generation Civic Sedan be the most nimble and agile ever is a lighter aluminum front subframe combined with a wide rear track.

Honda Civic Sedan Interior

Driver-Focused Interior

Engineered with a balance of connectivity and comfort, the sleek interior of the Honda Civic Sedan puts all essential controls and switches within easy reach of the driver. Entry-level Civic Sedan trim levels come standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen, the largest in the model’s history. Also unique to the Civic are its specialized seats that have been designed to enhance comfort on long drives by taking advantage of Honda Body Stabilizing technology. Careful attention to detail has allowed for a more simplified dashboard layout, helping to improve the feeling of spaciousness inside the cabin. You have virtually endless options for listening to your favorite songs thanks to the ability to use your phone, radio, Bluetooth® or USB media, or a connected smartphone for use with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Another Civic-first option available inside the cabin is a Bose audio system featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose SurroundStage digital signal processing.

Groundbreaking Safety

Raising the standard for safety performance in the small-car segment, the Honda Civic Sedan is equipped with a class-leading assortment of groundbreaking safety features. A world’s first application, both frontal airbags inside the Civic use ingenious technology to better control head motions in certain types of crashes. Honda Sensing® is also included as standard across the Civic Sedan lineup. Standard equipment includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™
(CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and several more. All Civic models also benefit from the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, further enhanced for superior stiffness and protection in the event of an accident.
