Honda Civic Sedan Features

Honda Civic Sedan Exterior

Athletic Styling & Performance

No matter from which angle you choose to look at it, the 2022 Honda Civic Sedan features an unmistakable exterior appearance that’s influenced by the original Honda design principles of “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” (or “M/M”). Conveying a sense of athleticism along with a more upscale feel than prior generations, the Civic Sedan now features a lowered beltline and windshield pillars that have shifted rearward for improved outward visibility. Boosting its handling abilities, the Civic also features a widened rear track and bold rear shoulder line for a more composed on-road feel.

Under the hood of the Civic Sedan is 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). Available driver-selectable modes including Eco, Normal, and Sport allow you to fine-tune the characteristics of your Civic Sedan to match your preferences. Contributing to its nimble handling is a lightweight front subframe which helps keep the Civic Sedan firmly planted during cornering.

Honda Civic Sedan Interior

Driver-Focused Interior

Striking a balance between connected and comfortable, the driver-focused layout of the Honda Civic Sedan is the ultimate way to take command of your daily commute. Entry-level Civic Sedan trims feature a 7-inch color touchscreen as standard equipment, the largest display screen in the history of the model. Designed using the principles of Honda Body Stabilizing technology, the Civic also comes equipped with unique seats that are designed to enhance comfort on long-distance drives. Through careful attention to detail, the configuration of the cabin features a minimalist structure that adds a feeling of spaciousness. Drivers can take advantage of a variety of ways to listen to their favorite songs by using a phone, radio, Bluetooth® or USB media, or a connected smartphone for use with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Another Civic-first feature offered inside the cabin is an available Bose audio system featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose SurroundStage digital signal processing.

Honda Civic Safety

Groundbreaking Safety

Raising the benchmark for safety performance in the small car segment, the Honda Civic Sedan comes standard with an impressive array of groundbreaking safety features designed to protect both drivers and passengers. Debuting for the first time in a passenger vehicle, innovative frontal airbags found inside the Civic benefit from specialized technology to better control head motions in certain types of crashes. Another key feature included as standard across the model range is Honda Sensing®. Standard features included in this collection are Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and many more. Every Civic Sedan is also engineered with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, further improved for superior stiffness and protection in the event of a collision.
