2022 Honda Civic, will it continue the legacy?
The all new 2022 Honda Civic has adopted a clean and subtle design statement, with more of fluidity and less of sharp notches and cuts. Prominent disclosed features include a 9-inch Infotainment screen equipped with a Bose sound system, blind spot monitoring and a fully-digital instrument cluster similar to the one in the current Honda City.
Globally, it is expected to come in two variants, the real deal being the Sport’s 2-litre petrol engine which produces 156bhp and 187Nm and for the less punchy and much refined drive experience the Touring variant also packs a more powerful 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine under the hood producing 177bhp and 240Nm.
With 10 airbags coming as standard in the new Civic for all variants, Honda has worked upon reducing the probability of internal head injury by upgrading the frontal airbags, thus ensuring more safety.
With the existing competition being the new Hyundai Elantra Facelift and the beasty Skoda Oktavia, the new facelift Civic can be expected to launch in global markets later this year, pandemic being a cause of delay. In India, the new model is expected to arrive at the end of 2022 as 2023 model.
