2022 Honda Civic | Pleasing Everyone is Hard

We review the new 2022 Honda Civic Sedan to decide if this new-old approach works. The car is designed to be for more people worldwide, blending old-school clean design, and functional interior. The 11th Generation will usher in new trims later such as the Si and Type R, for now, we have the car for everyone. And would you choose this over the Hyundai i30, Veloster, Toyota Corolla, Mazda3, or VW Golf?

    The previous generation looked better. The nose looks like it was punched by some one causing the metal to flatten, the tail lamps are awfully larger & don't suit the overall aesthetics. The sporty look of civic for what it has been famous for is gone. Wonder if its influenced by boring Camry 😭. Better to have retained older outer design with new interiors & launch the current version as a retro version( grandpa version)

    They should make another civic with short wheelbase version . Just like the Hyundai Tucson . Short wheelbase for Europe & some other markets . Long for rest of the world.

    Mazda3 is still a better choice. Optional AWD, more power if you go to the Mazda 2.5T engine (also 1.5T v. 2.5T, Mazda will naturally have better torque curves for daily use), you get a proper Automatic Transmission which is proven reliable and solid, and last but not least, the interior in the Mazda looks better and is at entry level luxury look and feel in higher spec trims. If you can get over the smaller interior space, I can't see how you can ignore the Mazda3 it's just the best entry level car in this class currently. It has something for everyone.

    That dash is delicious. That said, do those knobs rotate continuously? If so, they ruined it. The knob needs to STOP when I can't have any more volume or when the AC won't get any warmer or cooler. I need a physical indication that I've reached the end of the adjustment.

    Thanks for this review. I haven't owned a car since 1988 (really!). After 27 years in NYC, the wife and I've moved back to my native California and I'm shopping a car. The hatchback version of this new Civic is my frontrunner. Sedan of same is close behind, though! This review is very encouraging.

    Interior looks great except for that stupid screen sitting up above the dash. Externally... meh. CVT - seriously, why Honda? Completely boring. Maybe the 11gen Type R will be exciting in a non-WRX way. Maybe.

    It’s all about the Mazda3 Hatch the interior blows this one out of the water. I looked at both but had to go with the Mazda. No CVT, great interior quality and design, and IMO exterior is more sporty. But it was a hard choice. Honda offered more room in rear seats, better gas mileage, also a very good looking car and interior. Mazda just won out for me.

    It is mentioned in the review, repeatedly, that this Civic - "at least, the Touring model" - is quiet. But now that many have bought this Civic Touring, I'm seeing references to loud cabin/road noise. Some have swapped tires for supposedly-quieter models, to little avail. I'm wondering if there's a remedy, without removing seats and carpeting to apply more insulation, or the silly idea of blasting the sound system to camouflage the noise (or buying a Mazda 3 instead)?

    Well any suggestions youtube community? I think personally I am done with the Civics I love my 2016 EX look and shape but so does my wife so I’m giving her that car. But I am SUPER positive I don’t want this 2022 Civic, if I wanted a Jetta I just buy one. And 10k more for the Touring (which still lacks style imo) I would just get a basic Lexus. Any thing out there around 27-35k that looks sporty?!

    Owning a 10th gen civic has been fantastic for the past 3 years. I would upgrade to the 11th gen BUT the CVT is the worst transmission. If you want any type of enjoyment while driving to work or around town, this cars has no character. Don’t get me wrong, it is a great daily but if you are into athletic driving even just a little bit the CVT ruins the experience

    I just got the 2022 Honda Civic Touring w/nav and it’s a lot of car for the price. Very stoked about it. It’s not as sporty as the 10th gen and it’s lacking a 6 speed manual but damn everything else is super nice. I’m coming from a 2019 Corolla SE fully loaded 6 speed manual and that car had no guts. That’s why I moved up to this Civic, has plenty of power for highway and overtaking. Just no manual and no hatchback at least yet anyway. My Honda dealer told us they did away with manual and hatches this year.
