The 10th-generation Civic Hatchback became a breakout hit since its introduction to the U.S. market in 2016, eventually accounting for more than 25 percent of Civic sales. The 11th-generation Hatchback builds on the popularity of its predecessor and for the first time Civic Hatchback will be manufactured in the U.S., in Greensburg, Indiana , continuing the decades-long commitment by Honda to build products close to the customer.

Built on the same platform as the all-new and critically acclaimed Civic Sedan, the new Civic Hatchback features the same low cowl, excellent visibility and exceptional attention to detail. Its sporty hatchback design not only adds a sleek coupe-like silhouette and a fastback roofline, it also has a wider cargo opening than its predecessor to make it easier to load large items.

Civic Hatchback’s simple and clean interior delivers on the new Honda user experience and adds best-in-class cargo capacity behind the rear seats, more rear seat legroom and an open and airy greenhouse for improved visibility for all occupants.

Highlighting the dash is Civic’s metal honeycomb panel, a high-quality styling detail that serves both form and function by also concealing the air vents. The high-tech interior also includes standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, plus an available 10.2-inch all-digital instrument display and an HD 9-inch color touchscreen and Bose Centerpoint 2 premium sound system.

The new Civic Hatchback also ramps up the sporty driving characteristics of the new Civic Sedan, with ride and handling developed in Europe and North America, and an available 6-speed manual transmission with short throws and a solid feel. The 6-speed is available with both the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter and turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engines, promising enthusiast drivers an even more engaging driving experience. This is the most fun to drive Civic Hatchback in Honda history and, ultimately, will serve as the basis for the next generation of Honda’s performance flagship, the Civic Type R.

The 2022 Civic Hatchback includes all the safety updates made to the 2022 Civic Sedan, including the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, improved with a new single-camera system.  Honda Sensing adds standard Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) in CVT-equipped trims, and gives a more natural feel to functions such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist.

In fact, the new Civic Hatchback boasts best-ever safety features and performance, with multiple new airbag designs, including the world’s first driver’s airbag specifically designed to reduce head rotation in a collision, especially an oblique collision. Introduced on the all-new Civic Sedan, the new airbag uses an innovative donut-shaped structure to cradle and hold the head, mitigating rotation and reducing the likelihood of brain injury. On the passenger side, a new three-chamber airbag design achieves a similar result. The three chambers inflate separately, with the two outer chambers that extend above the main chamber designed to cradle the head and control rotation.

Along with the two next-generation airbags, Civic benefits from additional standard airbag technology with first-time applications of knee and rear side-impact airbags.

  • Stiffer body construction for improved driving dynamics

Exterior Design Details
Visually, the 11th-generation Civic Hatchback is an even sportier interpretation of its sedan counterpart. Key differences include a more aggressive grille design, a clean coupe-like profile and unique taillight treatment.

Up front, the Civic Hatchback’s is immediately distinct from Sedan, thanks to its more aggressive honeycomb grille, which is tilted slightly forward and features a smaller body-color area for an even sportier look. Like Sedan, Civic Hatchback’s front-end styling emphasizes width with slim, wide-set LED headlights.

Civic Hatchback shares the same 107.7-inch wheelbase while the Hatchback’s rear overhang is 4.9 inches shorter. Compared to the 10th-generation Hatchback, the rear overhang is 0.8 inches (20 mm) less. To eliminate the need for roof molding and achieve Hatchback’s clean roof line, Honda has employed the same laser brazing technology used on the Sedan’s roof seams. Additionally, Hatchback uses a new lightweight resin hatch, which allows the hinges to be moved down and to the side for a smooth, clean coupe-like profile.

The 2022 Civic Hatchback eliminates the previous rear spoiler, giving the rear end a much cleaner and more integrated appearance without any loss of visibility. To emphasize its width, Hatchback features unique horizontal taillights with CHMSL that run nearly the entire width of the hatch.

In the rear, the 11th-generation Civic benefits from a 0.5-inch wider track while maintaining the same overall width as the 10th-generation car. This is achieved by pushing the rear wheels as close to the edge of the body work as possible thanks to newly hemmed wheel arches. This allows the wheels to be situated nearly flush with the fender without fear of tires interfering with the body work when the suspension is compressed.

Like the Civic Sedan, the Hatchback’s windshield A-pillars have been pulled rearward by 1.96 inches to improve visibility, elongate its hood and visually connect the pillar to the front wheel hub to create a sense of stability. Likewise, Hatchback’s hood is an inch lower where it meets the pillars, lowering the fender line, creating a “thin” appearance that makes the wheels look larger.

A strong horizontal character line emphasizes the new Hatchback’s additional 1.4 inches of wheelbase. An upswept lower character line that begins right behind the front wheel, sweeping gradually upward toward the rear adds a sense of motion.

The Civic Hatchback’s door handles have been redesigned for a cleaner look. A touchpad has replaced the locking button seen on the 10th-generation, and the keyhole has been cleverly hidden behind the handle itself.

Lighting Design
LED lighting is used extensively for the exterior, including the wide-set headlights, daytime running lights, taillights and available fog lights. Serving more than just a functional role, lighting is an integral part of Civic’s design. For example, the momentum of the character line which runs from the front all the way to the rear is reflected on the front and rear lights. This applies with the lights on or off and creates a feeling of linearity with the entire body.

In front, the three-lamp headlight unit places the high beam in the middle, creating a “pupil” effect when the high beams are off. Functionally, the headlights have been designed for improved illumination, with one of the low-beam units having better lateral illumination, and the other distributing light farther and wider down the road for improved visibility at night, all of which helps the Hatchback target a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The Hatchback’s taillights and CHMSL enhance the uninterrupted flow of the upper side character line, spanning nearly the entire width of the hatch.

Four New Wheel Designs
All Civic Hatchback grades come standard with alloy wheel designs, ranging from 16-inches to 18-inches. Civic Hatchback LX uses 5-spoke design with a subtle twist that  conveys forward motion and is painted Berlina Black with a machined face. On the top-line Sport Touring is an upscale 18-inch split 5-spoke design with a dark clear-coated machined face and Berlina Black inserts. The 17-inch wheels on the EX-L trim and 18-inch Berlina Black wheels on Sport trims are shared with Civic Sedan.

Enhanced Architecture and Stronger Body
Underpinning the 11th-generation Civic is an enhanced structure and stronger body, with multiple improvements to the platform and body yielding increased stiffness and rigidity that benefit Civic’s world-class and segment-leading ride, handling, and crash performance. This includes circular frames around the engine compartment strut towers and behind the rear seats. Stiffening these sections results in a better balance of front-rear rigidity, which helps improve steering feel and precision. Floor strength is also improved via lattice frame members and by joining the front and rear ends of the center tunnel to the dashboard lower and rear crossmember.

Overall, the new Civic Hatchback is 19-percent stiffer in torsional rigidity compared to the 10th-generation. Additionally, there is a 17-percent increase in stiffness to the rear damper upper mounting points which allows the dampers to operate more effectively, resulting in better body and unsprung mass control. The front damper upper mounting points are 2 percent stiffer.

While increasing structural strength can mean an increase in weight, several new construction techniques were used in the new Civic to minimize weight gain. Reduction measures include the use of an aluminum hood, a feature that was previously only available on Civic Type R.

Application of Structural Adhesive
To achieve a radical reduction in cabin noise, vibration and harshness, and accurate steering response, the 11th-generation Civic Hatchback uses 9.5 times more structural adhesive than the 10th-generation car. Applying the adhesives where spot welds are performed combines the strength of the weld and the broader surface area of the adhesive, increasing the stiffness of the joint. By reducing the need for increased sheet metal thickness or the addition of welded-on reinforcements, the use of structural adhesives improves overall rigidity while minimizing weight gain.

Aerodynamic Performance
Careful tuning of its design has given the 11th-generation Civic Hatchback outstanding aerodynamic performance, including a drag reduction of approximately 3 percent. This was crucial to achieving high targets for fuel economy ratings and wind noise reduction. In front, a new and better bumper corner shape was used, which lets the air flow smoothly from the side of the front bumper to the side of the wheel, reducing the side wake.

Additionally, airflow separation over the front pillar was reduced by increasing the area of drip molding, and airflow turbulence under the door mirror was reduced by adding small vortex generators to the underside of the door mirror housing.
In the rear, the height of the trailing edge of the tailgate is optimized to reduce downwash. In addition, the taillights were designed to reduce the trailing vortex behind the vehicle.

HPD Accessory Package
For 2022, a new HPD accessory package is available that includes front underbody and tailgate spoilers, black HPD 18-inch wheels, and a rear HPD emblem.

Exterior Colors
The Civic Hatchback is available in eight colors: Rallye Red, Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Sonic Gray Pearl and Meteorite Gray Metallic (just introduced on the 11th-generation Civic Sedan), plus Boost Blue Pearl (borrowed from Type R) and an all-new Smokey Mauve Pearl that is exclusive to Hatchback.

Interior Design and Package

What’s New

  • The Civic Hatchback’s simple and uncluttered interior delivers on the new Honda user experience and Honda’s human-centered design philosophy while adding generous cargo capacity
  • More rear seat legroom than any previous Civic Hatchback
  • A metal honeycomb panel serves both form and function, presenting a fine-quality detail while also concealing the air vents
  • Low cowl and beltline for improved visibility
  • Simplified dashboard surfaces reduce distractions and reflections
  • Simple and easy to use layout
  • New Body Stabilizing Seat enhances long-drive comfort
  • High-quality switchgear throughout for a class-above experience
  • Extensive sound insulation for a quiet and refined ride

Improved Versatility
The Civic Hatchback’s simple and uncluttered interior delivers on the new Honda user-experience and Honda’s human-centered design philosophy with generous cargo capacity with rear seats up or down. With 24.5 cu.-ft. of cargo space behind its standard split rear seats, Hatchback is best-in-class among 2022 models.

Hatchback’s new resin hatch is lighter, so it’s easier to open and close, and the lower part of its hatch opening has been widened by 1.6 inches (40 mm) to make loading wide items even easier.

Simple, Uncluttered Interior
The Civic’s clean and simple interior is a user-friendly space that enables the driver to easily obtain information from outside the vehicle through the large glassy areas. The user friendliness is grounded in the concept of “function flow,” developed with the understanding that making in-vehicle tasks as simple as possible leads to driver satisfaction.

The form and function of switches and other fixtures were carefully designed to be most suitable for each task, be it a twist, push or pull, with special attention to the feel and amount of spring force in controls. Such careful attention to detail included consistency between surface treatments, even on decorative parts, with the goal of creating an environment comparable to high-end tech devices.

Interior ergonomics were developed along two core ideas: “instantaneous recognition” and “intuitive operation,” which combines easy to understand information with natural-feeling controls. To this end, the new Civic places meters and the center display on the upper part of the instrument panel, allowing the driver to gain useful driving information with limited eye movement. Since controls for the climate system and side windows are out of the driver’s line of sight, they were positioned along the lines of the driver’s natural functional flow, allowing intuitive operation with minimal movement.

Special attention was paid to the rear seating area as well. The rear seatback angle was increased by one degree for a more relaxing and comfortable ride for passengers, and the lower windowsill is complemented by a new, small side window behind the rear door pillar, helping to create a feeling of spaciousness.

Panoramic Visibility
The new Civic Hatchback’s classic design values pay dividends inside. The feeling of spaciousness is experienced immediately and shared by all Civic occupants thanks to the low, flat beltline and uncluttered cabin design. The pulled-back A-pillars, low hood, flat dashboard and hidden windshield wipers result in a windshield with clearly defined corners for a panoramic view, offering a horizontal angle of the view that is increased to 87 degrees from the 84 degrees for the previous Civic. Furthermore, the outside mirrors were mounted on the doors, rather than at the base of the A-pillar, creating a space and sightline between the front pillar and side view mirror for improved peripheral visibility. The front side windowsills are essentially in line with the bottom of the windshield, contributing to the continuous, panoramic view.

In addition to featuring a square-shaped front glass, the flat instrumental panel was developed using computer aided design (CAD) and clay models so that the joints and seams are positioned to reduce the visual noise from windshield reflections. Additionally, the low cowl is the same height as the door windowsills for an uninterrupted and harmonious flow that extends from the dash all the way to the rear doors.

Visibility in the rear of the car is also improved, with new small quarter windows behind the rear door windows, and by eliminating the rear spoiler which split the view out of the rear window.

Taken together, the enhanced visibility afforded by the exterior structure and interior design make it easier for the driver to understand the vehicle’s position relative to its surroundings, whether traveling in a straight line or when cornering.

Interior Packaging
The Civic Hatchback’s exceptional interior packaging results in ample head, leg, shoulder and hip room for all passengers, with volume increased by 1.8 cu.-ft. for a maximum total of 99 cu.-ft. (96.6 with moonroof) of passenger space. Beyond that, the new Civic increases the quality, comfort and user-friendliness of the interior space through smart changes in design.

In the rear, the extended wheelbase allowed for an increase of 1.4 inches of rear-seat legroom compared to the 10th-generation Hatchback. The generous interior headroom of the 10th-generation car has been maintained.

New Body Stabilizing Front Seats
All Civic trims benefit from new Body Stabilizing Seats for driver and front passenger. The new seat design uses multiple new internal structures to provide improved support across the entire body, enhancing comfort on long drives. This includes a new mat below the cushion that supports the area from the pelvis to the lumbar spine for a more stable and solid seating feel.

An inner frame on the seat bottom stabilizes the hip to reduce movement and posture changes regardless of the various G forces the user may experience while driving. The curve of the seat bottom leaves no gap between the seat and thighs to prevent sliding forward, which couples with the internal structure to reducing forward and lateral pelvic tilt that can lead to fatigue and discomfort on long drives. The seat also centers the upper body over the pelvis, helping to stabilize the upper arms and the eyesight of the driver, making it easier to drive.

From a design standpoint, fabric and leather upholstery use wrinkle-resistant materials with a virtually perfect finish all the way to the edges, and the seatback uses a single material, eliminating inconsistency in visual quality for a “clean” view from the rear seats, with a minimum of seams.

Honeycomb Mesh Instrument Panel Trim
The striking metal honeycomb mesh panel that stretches from door to door across the dash serves multiple functions. It creates a dramatic, horizontal dividing line, cleanly separating the dash into an “information” section on the top with the instrument panel and touchscreen audio systems, and a “control” section on the bottom that includes climate and other physical controls.

In addition, the honeycomb panel design is flow-through, concealing air vents that might otherwise mar the uncluttered look of the dash. The knobs operating the vents went through multiple design iterations to achieve a high-quality operation feel, with the final version reminiscent of high-end home entertainment devices.

Fine-Quality Trim and Materials
Exceptional care was taken throughout the interior design process to use the highest quality materials and surface treatments. Controls and switchgear were all designed with a high tactile quality and simple design, with a metallic finish on components such as the climate control knobs conveying an upscale feel. The interior door handles use a platinum-look coating for a high-quality appearance and were designed to be easier to use.

The center console features a new finish that evokes the high-quality appearance of piano black, but without the propensity for smudges, fingerprints and scratches that can affect that material over time (see Center Console, below). On Sport Touring grades, the same material is used on the window switch panels.

Fit and finish was also given high priority. This included details such as precisely fitting the tweeter from the Bose audio system into the A-pillar, since it comes into the field of view of the driver. The center B-pillar was designed with a ridge that actively picks up outside light, making it look thinner, and reducing the feeling of confinement for rear seat passengers. Even the cover for the new Honda Sensing® wide-view camera was designed to create a sense of unity with the upper console, achieving a clean look.

The Hatchback LX trim features a black cloth interior, while Hatchback Sport has a combination synthetic leather and fabric seat in Sport Black, which includes a black headliner. Hatchback EX-L grades feature perforated leather upholstery in either black or gray, while Sport Touring’s Sport Black and Sport Gray perforated leather both include a black headliner. 

  • LX trims use fabric seats with a unique grid pattern that adds a depth and complexity to the appearance depending on the viewing angle.
  • Sport trims use a combination of fabric on the main seating surfaces and leatherette on the sides. Seamless accents are used on the single piece main material for a sporty look.
  • EX-L and Sport Touring trims come equipped with leather seats with additional width around the shoulder area, giving the seats a uniquely expansive and relaxing feel. Subtle gradient stripes were added to the seat inserts using perforations for a sporty style.

Center Console
The Hatchback’s center console design focuses on ergonomics to help drivers perform tasks easily and without distraction, while its trim and colors were carefully chosen to give the console a class-above appearance.

In Hatchbacks equipped with a CVT, the shift knob has been tilted toward the driver by 5 degrees, allowing the cup holders to be positioned to the right of the shift knob and still hold large-size cups. Smaller tubs built inside the holder allow it to stably hold reduced sized types of cups as well, such as the now-popular, skinnier insulated bottle. In front of the shift knob is a generous tray designed to accommodate large smartphones, where, in the Sport Touring trim, a wireless charging pad is located. The standard USB port in the front of the console is lit to make it easier to find at night.

Civic Hatchback models with a 6-speed manual transmission feature a different center console layout, with its deep and wide cupholders arranged behind its centrally located short-throw shifter and drive mode buttons. The drive mode and parking brake buttons are positioned to the left of the shifter and its center console bin is located behind the cupholders.

Usability improvements include switches and other controls that are laid out along the driver’s operational flow. For Sport and Sport Touring trims, the drive mode switch is located directly above the button for the electric parking brake, making it easy for drivers to find without taking their eyes off the road. In addition, the large center console storage bin uses a lid which automatically pops up to a 60-degree angle (manually to 90 degrees), making it easier for shorter drivers to open and close the lid without twisting their body.

Similar in appearance to glossy piano black, Civic’s center console trim has a clear, and high-gloss resin finish. However, to prevent fingerprints and scratches that can blemish the surface of piano black surfaces over time, the die for the console trim was machined in a very fine pattern. This pattern hides fingerprints and scratches, while creating an attractive visual accent for the cabin space. On EX-L and Sport Touring trims, the pattern also is used on the window-switch panels.

Reducing Cabin Noise
Engineers took a multi-pronged approach throughout the new Civic to address noise and vibration at the source and reduce the transmission of residual noise and vibration to the cabin itself.

This includes the first use of urethane spray foam for Civic, radically reducing cabin noise. Commonly found in premium class vehicles, urethane spray foam is used in 10 places, and is particularly effective in the hollow portions of the body structure, including the front and rear end of the side sills, and the starting and ending points of each pillar.

To reduce the vibrations that can cause noise, overall body rigidity is improved as well as the rigidity of the underbody panel. Additional measures were taken throughout the chassis to reduce the transmission of road noise through the suspension, including improved bushings in the multi-link rear suspension. (For more information, please see the Chassis section.)

Sound insulation is used in multiple places throughout Civic to prevent remaining noise from the engine compartment, road, suspension, and even body panels from penetrating the cabin. This includes sound insulation on the underside of the hood, the engine under cover, and the dashboard panel, plus a dashboard inner insulator and noise-absorbing instrument panel insulator to reduce the transmission of engine sounds to the cabin.

Road noise is reduced through the use of a noise-absorbing floor undercover and rear inner fender liner, plus noise-absorbing carpeting. Hatchback also benefits from additional sound insulation under the rear carpet compared to Sedan, and extra sound insulators in the walls of the cargo area.

Engine vibrations were reduced by various measures, such as an improved torque rod to control longitudinal vibrations, additional fastening points of the engine side mount stay, and increasing the rigidity of both the crankshaft and oil pan on 1.5-liter turbocharged engines. Under-hood components that can transmit vibrations, such as the air cleaner and intercooler, were designed with an eye to reducing noise and vibration. Finally, a new lightweight flex tube in the exhaust decreases the transmission of engine noise to the cabin.

Additionally, revised programming for the engine and CVT provide a more linear and natural-sounding relationship between engine and vehicle speeds. (For more information, please see the Powertrain section.)

Driver-Focused Technology
Using technology to benefit the driver is a key component to the human-centered design of the 11th-generation Civic Hatchback, and the result is the most technologically sophisticated Civic ever. Advanced features include digital instrumentation for all trims, with the Hatchback Sport Touring grade featuring the all-digital color instrument cluster that debuted in Sedan.

Two touchscreen audio systems are available: a standard 7-inch color touchscreen, and a high-definition (HD) 9-inch color touchscreen similar to the one used in Accord and other Honda vehicles is standard on Sport Touring grades. Both touchscreen audio systems are placed nearly 4 inches higher on the dash for better visibility and ease of use.

Both touchscreen audio systems are designed with an eye toward simplicity of operation with additional hard buttons, including a volume knob, and a simplified menu structure. Hatchback Sport Touring also features Bose premium sound system with Centerpoint 2 technology.

Digital Instrumentation
All 11th-generation Civic trims, Sedan and Hatchback, use digital instrumentation. LX, Sport and EX-L grades are equipped with a 7-inch color digital display. The right side of the instrumentation is occupied by a physical speedometer. On the left side of the instrumentation is the digital display, which features depiction of an analog tachometer on its leftmost side. In between the tachometer and the speedometer, the display features a Multi-Information zone that can present a range of alerts and information. A portion within the tachometer can also be toggled through a range of informational screens to present trip computer, audio, phone, driver attention monitor, traffic sign recognition and safety support.

Hatchback Sport Touring grades feature the new all-digital instrument display that debuted on Civic Sedan. Measuring 10.2 inches, the high-definition full-color panel displays a variety of information, all customizable from the steering wheel. Information can be displayed with traditional round gauges for the tachometer and speedometer, or with bar graphs flanking the left and right of the screen. A new mode available when using Adaptive Cruise Control eliminates the tachometer and speedometer from the display altogether (but maintains a numerical speed readout) for a more relaxed driving environment.

In addition to the gauges, the screen is used to convey information to the driver with customizable areas on the left and right side of the display. The left side of the screen is dedicated to audio and telephone information, which the driver can select using the left-side steering wheel controls. The right side is dedicated to driving-related information such as activating or deactivating various Honda Sensing® functions, or navigation system information, which the driver selects using the right-side steering wheel controls.

Between the speedometer and tachometer is an area dedicated to vehicle functions, including Honda Sensing® status and a numerical speed readout. This graphic meter is used to communicate Honda Sensing® operating status in an easy-to-understand manner. The car itself is represented in a bird’s eye view from behind, and the digital meter displays an accurate view of the surroundings, including indicating curves in the road, to match the actual road environment. The display also uses a motorcycle and box truck as options to express “other vehicles” ahead. And in a fun surprise-and-delight feature, the brake lights, headlights and turn signals of the Civic icon turn on and off with those functions.

New Standard Audio
LX, Sport and EX-L grades come standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen audio system, the largest standard screen in Civic history. Functionality is improved by a new physical power/volume knob on the left side, as well as a tuning/selection knob on the right side.

At the bottom is a row of hard buttons for many functions including skipping music tracks, navigating the audio menu and selecting between phone, radio, Bluetooth® or USB media. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration is standard. On LX trims, the audio system powers four speakers, while Sport and EX-L have eight speakers, with tweeters added to the A-pillars and rear doors.

Large and easy to use physical buttons on the audio system improve usability, and the system uses a fast processor for quick response with virtually no lag after inputs. To make it easier to use the switches and touchscreen when the vehicle is in motion, the screen is recessed slightly from the edge of the dash, resulting in a 0.8-inch finger rest that allows the user to steady their hand while making selections.

Available HD Audio Display
The Civic Hatchback Sport Touring grade debuts an all-new HD 9-inch color touchscreen audio system. The new system features a volume knob, physical buttons for Home and Back functions, large and easy-to-recognize icons, a fast processor for lag-free performance, and a simplified navigation structure with fewer embedded menus, resulting in a reduction of the time it takes to perform a task by up to 83 percent.

Hatchback’s 9-inch color touchscreen system also comes standard with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, along with Qi-compatible wireless charging. Like the standard system, the 9-inch audio features a finger rest to make it easy to use the touchscreen while the vehicle is in motion. Four 2.5A USB ports are included with the 9-inch system, with two in the front and two at the rear of the center console for easy reach by rear seat passengers.

Designed with simplicity in mind, the new 9-inch color touchscreen system places user-defined shortcuts at the bottom of the screen, offering six easily programmable shortcuts. Making phone calls with a Bluetooth® connected phone is simplified with a reduced number of layers and simplified screen layout.

Also new are Smart Shortcuts, an automatic assistant function that enables the user to execute frequently used actions quicker and with fewer steps. The system uses machine learning to predict and propose user preferences based on the track record of the user’s actions and behaviors.

By pressing the icon on the home screen, the system displays frequently used commands, such as the “Home” address, frequently visited places, a list of favorite radio programs, redials for received calls, or calling a person on the “Favorite” list. For example, with one action, the system can call up the names of people the user calls frequently, eliminating the need to look them up in a directory. These shortcuts are stored on the Smart Shortcut menu, and a unique profile is created for each respective user.

Bose Premium Sound
Sport Touring trims feature a Bose premium sound system, the first use of a branded audio system in the Civic Hatchback. Featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose SurroundStage digital signal processing, the new system was custom-engineered precisely for the Civic Hatchback’s new interior so that drivers and passengers – regardless of their seating position – are placed in the middle of the music, with a clear and spacious listening experience for all audio content.

Expert audio engineers developed the Bose sound system with advanced components and technologies, working closely with Honda to integrate the system early in the vehicle design process for optimal performance. Clear, impactful sound is delivered through high-performance Bose speakers, strategically placed throughout the Civic’s interior for exceptional music reproduction across all frequencies, low to high.

Helping to preserve the quality of the listening experience, Dynamic Speed Compensation technology automatically adjusts volume and tone based on vehicle speed, reducing the need for drivers to manually adjust settings while on the road.

Bose System Details:

  • One 3.25-inch (80 mm) Bose Twiddler mid/high-range speaker in the center of the instrument panel
  • Four 1-inch (25 mm) lightweight neodymium tweeters – one in each A-pillar and one in each rear door
  • Two 6.5-inch (165 mm) wide-range speakers – one in each front door
  • Two 5.25-inch (130 mm) wide-range speakers – one in each rear door
  • Two 3.25-inch (80 mm) Bose Twiddler mid/high-range speakers – one in each C-pillar
  • One 8-inch (200 mm) woofer housed inside a customized enclosure mounted in the right rear quarter panel
  • A Bose digital amplifier with 12 channels of custom equalization and advanced digital signal processing

New On-Board Navigation
The navigation system used on Sport Touring grades of the 11th-generation Civic has been thoroughly redesigned, with an updated map system that’s easier to read and simplified access to frequently used controls.

An improved 3D mode clearly shows objects such as buildings for easier navigation by landmarks. The display uses more vibrant colors, and one-touch operation was added for frequently used functions such as route cancellation and muting navigation guidance. The system can also learn frequently used routes and using continuously updated traffic information from a user’s smartphone, can suggest alternate routes even if navigation guidance isn’t currently active. In addition, the new system will receive map updates four times a year.

  • New user-selectable SPORT mode (Sport and Sport Touring grades with CVT)

Additionally, the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, offered for the first time in Civic Hatchback, offers improved emissions performance, while the 1.5-liter 4-cylinder offers the same output as the previous generation Sport and Sport Touring, with 180-horsepower (SAE net at 6,000 rpm) and 177 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net at 1,700 to 4,500 rpm), but now on more economical 87-octane fuel.

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) for each engine have been retuned for more natural, “synchronized” response, as well as further improvements to fuel economy ratings in trims equipped with the 1.5L turbo engine (EX-L and Sport Touring).

World Class 6-Speed Manual Transmission
A 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) is available on the Civic Hatchback Sport and Sport Touring grades. Revised for the 11th-generation Civic Hatchback, the new manual transmission has been reengineered with shorter throws for an even more immediate response, giving the transmission an even more solid feel.

The Civic Hatchback’s manual transmission features a rigid aluminum exterior case, high-capacity ball bearings, stiff gear shafts, and high torque capacity. A constant-mesh helical reverse gear mechanism significantly reduces noise when reverse is selected. A reverse lockout feature prevents the transmission from accidentally being shifted into reverse while the car is moving forward.

Final Drive Ratio


In LX and Sport trims, the all-aluminum 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine produces 158-horsepower (SAE net at 6,000 rpm) and 138 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net at 4,300 rpm) and powers the front wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). While mechanically similar to the 10th-generation version, multiple changes were made to both the engine and the CVT to improve drivability, fuel efficiency and emissions.

Improved Emissions and Fuel Economy Ratings
Changes to the 2.0-liter engine primarily focus on emissions and fuel efficiency improvements. A new catalytic converter uses a minimum of rare metals, while helping to reduce emissions to the SULEV30 federal standard.

In addition, an Idle Stop system was added for the first time, reducing fuel consumption when idling at a stop.

Cylinder Block and Crankshaft
To help minimize noise and vibration, Civic's 2.0-liter inline four has a lightweight die-cast aluminum block with a bedplate main-bearing design that creates a rigid assembly. Cast-in iron cylinder liners provide long-lasting durability. Thin slits between each adjacent cylinder sleeve help improve engine cooling and knocking.

Each journal on the lightweight heat-forged steel crankshaft is micropolished to reduce internal friction and improve smoothness throughout the rpm range and help lower noise levels.

Pistons/Connecting Rods
Designed with "cavity-shaped" crowns, the 2.0-liter’s pistons help maintain stable combustion and contribute to improved efficiency. To reduce weight, minimize vibration and increase operating efficiency, the lightweight pistons have a carefully optimized skirt design. Ion-plated piston rings help reduce friction for greater operating efficiency. Heavy-duty steel connecting rods with tapered small ends are heat-forged in one piece and then "crack separated" to create lighter and stronger rods with an optimally fitted bearing cap.

Cylinder Head and i-VTEC® Valvetrain
The Civic Hatchback’s standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine has a lightweight DOHC cylinder head that is made of low-pressure cast aluminum alloy. With exhaust passages cast directly into the cylinder head, the need for a traditional separate exhaust manifold is eliminated and the catalytic converter mounts directly to the cylinder head.

A low-friction silent-chain drives dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. The cam drive is maintenance free throughout the life of the engine. To assist cooling and detonation resistance, the cylinder head has a cooling passage placed between each pair of exhaust valves.

Combustion chamber shape and valve angles are optimized to help boost fuel efficiency and power. The included valve angle is 35 degrees, to decrease the surface-to-volume ratio of the combustion chambers and help create a flat, compact combustion chamber that minimizes unburned hydrocarbon emissions. The combustion chamber shape creates a compression ratio of 10.8:1, yet the engine still operates on regular unleaded fuel.

A high-tumble intake-port design combines with the combustion chamber and piston crown shape to create a high level of airflow tumble. This helps create a homogenous fuel mixture for low fuel consumption and high airflow for high power output.

The 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve i-VTEC® engine uses an advanced valve control system to combine high power output with high fuel efficiency and low emissions. The system combines dual Variable Timing Control™ (VTC™), which continuously adjusts the intake and exhaust camshaft phase, with Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC®), which changes valve lift, timing and duration of the intake valves.

VTC™ is key to the “intelligent” portion of the system by continuously varying the timing of the intake and exhaust camshafts. This helps increase power while also providing a smoother idle (allowing idle speed to be reduced). The cam timing is varied based on input from sensors that monitor rpm, timing, throttle opening, cam position and exhaust air-fuel ratio. The result is increased fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Under certain conditions, the VTC™ can hold the intake valves open longer to allow a reverse airflow of intake air into the intake manifold.

Refined Continuously Variable Transmission
The 2.0-liter engine’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) has been refined in multiple ways to improve drivability, response and fuel efficiency.

Drivability improvements are accomplished by updating the following controls: G-Design shift, downshift strategy, and Step-Shift.  In various situations from normal to sporty driving, the updated G-Design shift further improves the linearity of the driver’s throttle input relative to the acceleration of the vehicle.

Downshift control adds engine braking when going downhill and is redesigned to improve engine response during spirited driving as well as increased engine braking in highway driving. When the driver presses the brake pedal while cornering or on the highway, the CVT will select an appropriate lower ratio, maintaining a higher engine speed. This creates stronger engine braking while improving the engine response when acceleration resumes. The higher engine speed continues until the driver resumes a cruise or neutral throttle condition.

A Step-Shift function is activated during full-throttle acceleration. The CVT is programmed to control engine speeds in “steps,” similar to a traditional automatic transmission, giving drivers a familiar audible cue for a better sense of acceleration.

To improve fuel efficiency, the CVT for the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder was updated with a new, more robust electric hydraulic pump. In a conventional CVT, a mechanical oil pump is responsible for both the high hydraulic pressure used to sandwich the steel belt by moving the pulley plates, and low hydraulic pressure for lubrication of each component. For the updated CVT, a new large-size electric oil pump is used to supply high hydraulic pressure for transmission operation, reducing the demand of the mechanical pump, and therefore improving fuel efficiency. In addition, the secondary shaft now uses a ball bearing versus the tapered roller bearing.

On Civic EX-L and Sport Touring trims, a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder produces 180 horsepower (SAE net at 6,000 rpm) and 177 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net at 1,700 to 4,500 rpm) on 87 octane gasoline. Last year the engine required premium unleaded to achieve the same maximum output, and peak torque output was 15 lb.-ft. lower when paired with the CVT.

The improvements are possible due to the use of a new high-efficiency turbocharger, new turbo piping with reduced pressure drop, and a new 4-2 exhaust port/manifold cast into the head. The changes to the turbo system also helped improve fuel economy ratings, assisted by the addition of VTEC® to the exhaust valves. To significantly reduce unpleasant vibrations in the 300-600 Hz range, the crankshaft and oil pan rigidity were both increased.

In addition, the changes made to the 1.5-liter engine work in concert with updates to the CVT’s responsiveness to reduce turbo lag and substantially improve engine response. The improvements can be felt especially when accelerating from a stop, resuming acceleration after being off-throttle, or in heavy traffic on a highway. In addition, the added torque combines with new engine and transmission tuning to help improve acceleration when merging or passing other vehicles on the highway, giving Civic a more natural and linear response to part-throttle inputs.

Updated Turbo System
For the 11th-generation Civic, the exhaust channeled to the turbocharger now enters the turbine wheel diagonally, rather than from the side as before, and the shape of the turbine wheel blades was also changed. This new flow path enables the turbocharger to generate pressure in a wider range and more efficiently.

Moreover, by reducing the curvature of the intake air entry to the compressor housing and the high-pressure side pipe which leads to charged intake air discharge, the pressure drop is reduced, which increases efficiency by approximately 5 percent in all areas, resulting in high responsiveness and high output.

New 4-2 Exhaust Port Cylinder Head
To reduce exhaust pulse interference, improving intake and exhaust efficiency, especially at low engine speeds, the new Civic features a 4-2 exhaust port/manifold design, which consolidates the exhaust from the number 1 and 4 cylinders into one pipe and the number 2 and 3 cylinders in a separate pipe. The 10th-generation used a 4-1 design cast into the head.

Additionally, the position of the air-fuel ratio sensor was moved, resulting in improved low-engine speed responsiveness. The efficiency gains in the adoption of the 4-2 exhaust manifold also contributes to the improvement of fuel efficiency.

Improved Fuel Economy Ratings and Emissions
In addition to improving engine performance, multiple steps were taken to improve fuel economy ratings and emissions. The 1.5-liter engine now uses VTEC® on the exhaust side, improving exhaust efficiency and optimizing valve overlap, efforts that contribute to improved fuel efficiency. Finer machining of the camshaft journals and low-friction materials for cam timing chain-related parts have been implemented, and the Idle Stop system used on the 2.0-liter engine also is used here.

For emissions, a new catalytic converter is used that minimizes the use of rare metals, helping Civic achieve LEV3-SULEV 30 (CVT) and LEV3-ULEV 50 (6MT) emissions certifications.

Cylinder Block and Crankshaft
Making the crankshaft stiffer to reduce noise and vibration starts with larger crankshaft pins. Each journal on the lightweight forged-steel crankshaft is micropolished to reduce internal friction. The engine uses a lightweight die-cast aluminum block with individual reinforced main bearing caps to minimize weight. Cast-in iron cylinder liners provide long-lasting durability.

Pistons and Connecting Rods
“Cavity-shaped” crowns on the 1.5-liter engine's pistons help maintain stable combustion and contribute to improved efficiency. The lightweight pistons also have a carefully optimized skirt design to minimize reciprocating weight, which minimizes vibration and increases operating efficiency.

Pistons are cooled by oil jets directed at the underside of each piston crown. Ion-plated piston rings help reduce friction for greater operating efficiency. Lightweight, high-strength steel connecting rods are heat-forged in one piece and then "crack separated" to create a lighter and stronger rod with an optimally fitted bearing cap.

Cylinder Head and Valvetrain
Civic’s direct-injected 4-cylinder turbocharged engine has a lightweight DOHC cylinder head that is made of pressure-cast aluminum alloy. With the exhaust manifold cast directly into the cylinder head, the need for a traditional separate manifold is eliminated.

A low-friction, silent-chain drives dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. The cam drive is maintenance free throughout the life of the engine. To help further reduce weight, thin-wall hollow camshafts are used.

To benefit fuel efficiency, emissions and power, the turbo engine utilizes sodium filled exhaust valves. A hollow chamber within the valve contains sodium that is cooled by the exhaust port cooling jacket. As the camber reaches close to the valve head, the sodium helps to cool the entire valve.

As the valve is internally cooled it doesn't need the enriched fuel mixture that was generally used in turbo engines to help cool the exhaust valve. The resultant leaner mixture reduces emissions, increases fuel efficiency and helps increase power. To provide a high-tumble intake charge that further enhances combustion efficiency, both the intake port and piston crown have special designs.

In addition to the new exhaust-side VTEC®, the 1.5-liter turbo engine continues to feature VTC™ that can vary the timing of both the intake and exhaust camshafts independently. With this system, cam timing can be optimized to suit the driving conditions. Under light loads, valve overlap can be increased to reduce pumping losses and improve fuel efficiency.

When engine speed is low and engine load is large, such as during initial acceleration, the amount of overlap is increased to boost the scavenging effect, which improves torque and responsiveness. When engine speed is high and engine load also is high, such as during full-throttle acceleration, the amount of valve overlap is reduced to increase engine output by improving both intake and scavenging.

Updated Continuously Variable Transmission
Already well known for its smooth and efficient delivery of engine power to the drive wheels, Civic’s CVT was further refined in the 11th-generation car to help reduce the “rpm-led” feel, when the acceleration feel comes after the increase in engine speed. This “rubber band effect” was reduced in the new Civic with increased engine torque and improved turbocharger response, which generate stronger acceleration at lower engine speeds, giving the engine a more natural feeling acceleration. Additionally, with the increased rigidity of the crankshaft and oil pan, the changes in engine sounds due to rpm changes are further reduced.

In addition, the CVT for the 1.5-liter turbo uses a larger torque converter to better handle the additional torque generated by the updated engine. The transmission also benefits from the same drivability improvements as the unit used with the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, including updated G-Design shift control, downshift strategy and Step-Shift function.

Additionally, Sport and Sport Touring trims come standard with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, allowing drivers to choose between individual pre-set “ratios” for a dynamic driving experience.

Drive Modes
The 2.0-liter Sport trims with CVT and 1.5-liter Sport Touring trims with CVT have a new user-selectable SPORT mode, in addition to the Normal and Eco driving modes,

  • New SPORT Mode
    An exclusive CVT shift map used in SPORT mode is designed for a powerful feeling of torque and high acceleration responsiveness. When in SPORT mode, the minimum engine speed is 2000 rpm (unless stopped or at low speeds), even when cruising, to ensure quick throttle response. 
  • ECON Mode
    Designed for fuel efficient driving, ECON mode changes the pedal input/throttle opening ratio to maintain fuel efficiency, even if the driver operates the acceleration pedal relatively aggressively. Additionally, the air conditioning is set to a more efficient cycle, which further improves fuel-efficient driving. 
  • Normal Mode
    Normal mode is set for a balance between fuel efficiency and driving performance.


What’s New

  • 1.4-inch longer wheelbase and 0.5-inch wider track than 10th-generation Hatchback
  • Improved straight-line driving and steering stability
  • All-new lightweight, rigid aluminum front subframe
  • Reduced friction front suspension for improved ride quality
  • New rear compliance bushings for improved ride and handling
  • Updated power steering for improved feedback
  • Low-drag front brake calipers

European-Developed Chassis for Responsiveness, Comfort and Fun
Already a class leader in ride, handling and steering performance, engineers have further improved Civic Hatchback’s chassis after extensive testing and development in Europe and North America. It’s now more responsive, more comfortable and more fun-to-drive than ever before.

Like Civic Sedan, the 11th generation Civic Hatchback’s wheelbase has been extended 1.4-inches under the rear seat, and its rear track is 0.5-inch wider. Together, these changes contribute to improved straight-line driving and steering stability.

An all-new aluminum front subframe with an efficient truss and rib structure provides rigidity and stability. Additionally, numerous improvements were undertaken to reduce suspension and steering friction, along with the use of more compliant suspension bushings, yielding noticeable improvements in dynamics and refinement.

This relationship between steering torque and yaw rate has been optimized to improve steering feel. Line tracing through low and high-speed corners also benefits by creating a more linear response to steering inputs.

Moreover, the new Civic feels more synchronized, with effectively no delay in the way the vehicle responds to steering inputs during lane changes and cornering, giving every Civic a sporty and confident feel. Additionally, the reduced suspension friction and improved bushings help improve the ride by reducing harsh impact shock and noise, such as when going over railroad crossings. Harshness noise is reduced by 20 percent.

Reducing Friction for Comfort and Precise Handling
Friction in suspension and steering systems is the enemy of precise handling and ride comfort, so measures were taken in the new Civic to reduce the amount of friction in both systems, with the goal of improving the quality and feel of the suspension movement and steering.

A tempering process heat treats the lower ball joints on the front suspension to reduce the surface pressure between the ball and resin ball seat, thus reducing friction in the ball joints 67 percent. Additional friction-reducing measures include the use of a low-friction seat for the front damper mount bearing (61 percent reduction) and optimizing the axes of the spring and damper. A honing process is used on the steering column bearing further reduces steering friction, improving the quality and feel the driver experiences when first turning the steering wheel while minimizing corrections needed in straight-line driving.

Rear Multi-Link Suspension
Mounted on a rigid subframe, the multi-link rear suspension helps provide stable yet agile handling, both during normal driving and in emergency maneuvers, along with a flat ride. For the 11th-generation Civic, the rear track is 0.5-inch wider for enhanced stability, and alterations were made to the suspension bushings to reduce impact harshness and optimizing yaw response.

The Hatchbacks’s rear compliance bushing on the front end of the trailing arm is larger, with an optimized axis that now faces directly to the input. This results in better damping force, reducing suspension harshness noticeably. On the back side of the lower rear suspension arm, new bushings have been developed that reduce noise and vibration inside the cabin, while also promoting better straight-line stability and turn in.

Electric Power Steering
In addition to the honed steering column bearing, the dual-pinion electronic power steering (EPS) has been re-tuned to provide better feedback and improved straight-line stability. Using a similar mechanism to the 10th-generation car, the dual pinion steering already provides substantially improved feel compared to a single-pinion steering system by using the physical steering input from the driver as well as from a supplemental electric motor. A non-contact torque sensor measures the driver's steering effort, and an ECU determines how much electric motor assist to add, with the result being a seamless, natural feeling steering in all situations.

For the 11th-generation Civic, a new feedback control was added to the EPS, enabling more precise control when unwinding the steering to return to a straight line. This results in smooth steering feel with strong resistance to ride disturbances, and excellent straight-line stability for driver peace of mind.

Brake Changes Improve Fuel Efficiency
All Civic trims are equipped with 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist as standard equipment. The system provides a comfortable and refined feel at low speeds, predictable and easy operation on the highway, a sporty, fun-to-drive feel on winding roads, and reassuring high-performance stopping in emergency situations.

All 2022 Civic trims are equipped with 11.1-inch diameter ventilated front brake rotors (0.9-inch rotor thickness) clamped by single-piston brake calipers. The rear disc brakes incorporate 10.2-inch diameter solid rotors (0.4-inch rotor thickness) paired with single-piston calipers.

For the 11th-generation Civic, the low-friction caliper was improved with a new roll back spring for the front brake caliper to further reduce brake drag, contributing to the improvement of fuel economy ratings while still maintaining the excellent braking performance Civic is known for. Additionally, both front and rear hub bearings use a low-viscosity grease, which improves fuel efficiency.

Safety & Driver Assistive Technology

What’s New

  • The 11th-generation Civic’s world-first use of a new driver airbag design, plus a segment-first passenger front airbag, are designed to cradle the head and control rotation; both are standard in the new Civic Hatchback
  • Next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure optimized for oblique collisions
  • Knee airbags (standard)
  • Rear seat side impact airbags (standard)
  • Improved pedestrian protection with a new embossed hood structure
  • All-new standard wide-view, single-camera Honda Sensing® system
  • Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) added to Honda Sensing® (CVT-equipped trims)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) added to Honda Sensing®
  • Updated Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • New blind spot information system (BSI)

Advances in Small-Car Safety Performance
Based on Honda’s Safety for Everyone approach, focused on enhancing safety for everyone sharing the road, Civic has long been a leader in small car safety performance, and the 11th-generation Civic continues that tradition with the introduction of multiple new active and passive safety systems. Two new test dummies were used to ensure current and future crash test standards were met: the Test Device for Human Occupant Restraint (THOR) dummy for frontal impacts that now includes sensors to determine the rotational speed of the brain, and a new Worldwide Harmonized Side Impact Dummy (WorldSID) used in side impact evaluations with new measurements for shoulder, chest and abdominal injuries.

Based on Honda’s safety commitment and using the information from these new test scenarios, multiple safety innovations were implemented in the new Civic. This includes the world’s first use of driver and passenger frontal airbags that are designed to reduce the likelihood of brain injury by better controlling head rotation in a collision, especially in oblique impacts. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure in the new Civic has also been updated for enhanced compatibility with larger vehicles, including enhanced occupant protection in oblique collisions. The front end also has been redesigned to reduce pedestrian leg and head injuries.

The standard Honda Sensing® suite of active safety and driver assistive technologies uses a new single-camera system with a faster processor that provides a wider field of view than the previous radar-and-camera based system. The updated Honda Sensing® system has also been enhanced with expanded functionality, including Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) in CVT-equipped trims, and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), both of which are new to Civic.

Existing functions also have been improved, such as more natural braking and acceleration when using Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and smoother tracking when using Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). With the addition of eight sonar sensors, Civic for the first time features Low-Speed Braking Control and rear false-start prevention on in CVT-equipped trims.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering ™ (ACE™) Body Structure
Honda introduced the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure nearly two decades ago, designed to protect vehicle occupants and improve crash compatibility between vehicles of varying sizes, such as an SUV and a small car, and has been continuously advanced.

The latest version of the ACE™ structure in the new Civic has been updated to meet the future NHTSA oblique crash test standard, in addition to achieving top-level scores in current NHTSA and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests. To that end, the front end features a new upper member, pillar structure, side frame and lower firewall structure all designed to route crash energy around the cabin, especially in oblique impacts.

Pedestrian Protection
Reflecting Honda’s Safety for Everyone approach, the new Civic has been designed to prevent and mitigate pedestrian injuries through both collision mitigation and collision avoidance. The standard Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistive and safety technologies has been engineered to detect pedestrians, warning the driver or even applying the brakes to help prevent a collision (see below for more details).

Honda has been an industry leader in designing its vehicles to mitigate pedestrian injuries should a collision occur. The new Civic front end features new approaches designed to mitigate pedestrian injuries. To help protect against injuries that can occur when a pedestrian’s head impacts the hood, a new embossed structure was developed for the hood frame, under the lightweight aluminum skin of the hood. This structure helps transmit the load of an impact across a wider area, better helping to reduce the severity of an injury to a pedestrian’s head, while allowing a smaller clearance between the hood and the engine. Additionally, the front bumper has been redesigned to prevent or reduce lower leg fractures, and ligament injuries to the knee.

Advanced Airbag and Seatbelt Technologies
Civic uses the world’s first driver’s airbag specifically designed to reduce head rotation in a collision, especially an oblique collision. Introduced on the 11th-generation Civic Sedan, the new airbag uses an innovative donut-shaped structure to cradle and hold the head, mitigating rotation and reducing the likelihood of brain injury.

On the passenger side, a three-chamber airbag design achieves a similar result. The three chambers inflate separately, with the two outer chambers that extend above the main chamber designed to cradle the head and control rotation. This new front passenger airbag is functionally similar to the world-first airbag design Honda introduced in 2019 and that debuted on the 2021 Acura TLX.

Civic further benefits from additional standard airbag technology: Driver and front passenger knee airbags and rear side impact airbags are used in Civic for the first time, along with side curtain airbags and side impact airbags for both driver and front passenger, for a total of 10 airbags.

Seatbelt technology has been updated as well, with an outer lap belt pretensioner used on front seatbelts, with a load limiter used on the driver’s side to prevent chest injuries. In the rear, pretensioners are used in both outboard positions, along with load limiters, and Civic now features a rear seatbelt reminder, which informs the driver if a rear seat occupant is not properly buckled up.

Improved Honda Sensing®
Civic’s standard Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistive and safety technologies is thoroughly reengineered for the 2022 Civic Hatchback. Rather than separate millimeter-wave radar and camera systems, the new system uses a single camera mounted behind the windshield, coupled with an exceptionally fast processor.

This new single-camera system features a field of view that is twice as wide as prior systems (100 degrees vs. 50 degrees). The camera detects feature points of a target and recognizes attributes of objects such as a vehicles or pedestrians. With the use of the fast processor, the system measures distance and the lateral position of objects based on the change in the size of the target object, how long it took for the change to occur, and speed of the vehicle. This enables the camera to recognize white lines, road boundaries such as curbs, other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and road signs.

In foul weather, the system parameters have been changed so it will operate even when the windshield wiper is on at mid or high speeds, as long as the camera can detect objects. In addition, a heater was installed to prevent fogging of the windshield in front of the camera in cold weather. The system software has also been programmed to continue providing assistance in foggy weather.

Honda Sensing® functions include:

  • New: Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) for CVT-equipped trims: works in conjunction with ACC and LKAS to provide lane-keeping functions at speeds below 45 mph all the way to a standstill, such as in congested traffic.
  • New: Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR): new camera automatically recognizes traffic speed limit signs, displaying the information on the digital meter immediately after the sign is passed.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): new camera system and more advanced software enables the use of CMBS™ in more situations. If no corrective action is taken when FCW signals an alert, CMBS can apply different levels of autonomous braking action to help reduce vehicle speed and eventual collision forces, and therefore to help reduce the severity of a collision.
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW, integrated with CMBS™): when the system determines a collision is possible with a detected vehicle, visual and audible alerts from the FCW system prompt the driver to take corrective actions.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC): new camera system improves Adaptive Cruise Control with more natural brake feel and quicker reactions to changes in traffic. It also responds more quickly when changing into an open lane from behind a slower car, and when a slower car moves out of the lane ahead. (Low-Speed Follow available only with CVT).
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS): LKAS reduces the need for steering correction movements and driving effort. For the 2022 Civic, LKAS has been improved with more linear and natural feeling steering assist, better line tracing in corners, and improved resistance to crosswinds.
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM): identifies solid or dashed painted lane lines, Botts' dots and cat’s-eye markers to find the edge of the road, and uses steering force to keep the vehicle from departing the lane or roadway altogether.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) integrated with RDM: operates at speeds from 40 to 90 mph and is designed to alert the driver if the vehicle is leaving a detected lane without the turn signal being activated.

Additional Driver Assistive Technologies
The 11th-generation Civic Hatchback benefits from additional driver assistive technologies. A new blind spot information (BSI) system on EX-L and Sport Touring trims uses radar installed on the rear corners of the vehicle to detect vehicles approaching from the rear, signaling the driver with a visual and audible warning. The BSI range has been expanded in the new Civic, so when a vehicle approaches from diagonally behind at a significantly different relative speed and the system considers it a potential risk of contact, it will alert the driver when it comes into a range of approximately 80 feet (25 meters).

Also on Sport Touring (with CVT) are four sonar sensors installed on the front of the vehicle, and four on the back that significantly improve the detection of non-metallic objects that could be missed by the millimeter wave radar, such as glass and external exterior walls. This enables the implementation of Low-Speed Braking Control and front and rear false-start prevention, to reduce the likelihood of low-speed collisions, such as in parking situations.
