2022 Honda Civic Buying Advice

For buyers on a strict budget and with the current mark-up trend in the market due to the semiconductor shortage, the older 2021 Honda Civic might not be a bad option to consider. That said with the complete refresh this year, we would still prefer opting for the new Civic 2022 despite the higher premium. Also, one could save some money on depreciation by buying a used Honda Civic sedan at a very affordable price tag.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The completely redesigned 2022 Honda Civic offers an elegant styling, an impressive feature list, spacious interiors, a turbocharged engine, and excellent driving dynamics. All 2022 Civic models come equipped with a long list of standard safety equipment as compared to the last generation update. The base 2.0L engine isn't the quickest in the segment and neither the most fuel-efficient although the turbocharged motor in the Sport and 2022 Honda Civic Touring models offers better performance and mileage


Honda has also done well to keep the ownership costs to a minimum as one can expect the 5-year cost of ownership to be around the $26,600 mark. J.D. Power rates the 2022 Civic with an almost class-leading 84/100 reliability rating. Consistently a top-ranking small car, the all-new 2022 Civic sees a complete redesign, however, at the dealership the older models may be discounted to make way for the newer generation. Check out deciding factors below to choose between the 2022 Civic or the 2021 Civic.

The sedans in this segment fight tooth and nail to deliver the best gas mileage. Among them, the Elantra sedan this time around is the most fuel-efficient beating the Civic's figures by 2 MPG in the city, 3 MPG on the highway, and 2 MPG under mixed driving conditions. On the other end of the spectrum is the Mazda 3 that is the least efficient among all, to compensate for that Hyundai has given it a slightly bigger fuel tank compared to the Civic.


"The interior of the new Honda Civic sedan and hatchback is understated but handsome. " Kelley Blue Book

The 2022 Civic is the most upscale Civic model yet, thus having an upper hand over its predecessors. The interiors of the 2022 Honda Civic have been designed with a focus on driver and passenger comfort. The honeycomb design with a horizontal theme neatly hides the AC vents and runs throughout the dash separating the infotainment and HVAC control is truly eye-catching and adds to space. Ergonomics are improved with a wider center console that now features two cubby holes, a wireless charging pad, and a leather-wrapped armrest. The 2022 Civic offers a well-bolstered and comfortable set of seats both at the front and the rear. While the clever cabin design ensures there is a sufficient amount of space in both rows and the cabin not only feels airy but also offers great visibility all around.

The overall cabin looks plush with the all-black leather which covers the majority of the room. On the downside, trunk capacity in the 2022 Civic sedan is slightly less than before, as it is rated at 14.8 cubic feet while the yesteryear model had 15.1 cu-ft. The 2022 Civic offers a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display as standard which is mounted on top of the dash and comes with Apple Carplay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Upgrade to the Touring trim and you will get a 9-inch touchscreen which gets wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with the 12-speaker Bose premium sound system and subwoofers. With the smaller infotainment screen, the driver gets a 7-inch digital gauge cluster while with the 9-inch touchscreen, the driver gets a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster.

As for the cabin space on offer, the front row seats are almost similar in all the sedans here and the real fight is at the rear. At the rear, the Elantra takes the lead by offering the best rear headroom and legroom while the rear shoulder room is slightly better in the Civic which in turn sits below the Elantra in terms of rear-seat space. As for the cargo capacity, the Civic is, without doubt, the one with the biggest trunk followed by the Elantra. While the Corolla not only lacks rear-seat space but also comes with the smallest trunk among all the sedans here.

  • Power windows and door lock
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter (optional)

"Some may say the new Civic's more conventional design is boring compared to the previous model's flamboyance, but we contend it's cleaner and more refined" - Edmunds

The 2022 Honda Civic has undergone a radical design change than its predecessor, making it look mature and subdued. Starting at the front the windshield pillars have been pushed back by 2-inches to elongate the bonnet. While the side mirrors have been shifted to the doors and that coupled with the lower beltline offers improved visibility. Finishing the side looks is the sharp shoulder line running from the front fender to the rear taillights.

Moving to the rear, you will notice the 2022 Civic now has a wider track (by 0.5-inches) and an upswept trunk lid. The former is for improved stability while the latter offers improved aerodynamics. Last but not least are the exterior lights all of which are now LED and offer good illumination at the night. The LED headlamps got a completely new look with their wider and sleeker profile and the placement of DRLs has also been altered to go with the new design. That being said, the LED foglights are only available on the Touring trim.

Going by the table it is clear that the Hyundai Elantra is the dimensionally bigger sedan here. Although when it comes to the wheelbase, the Civic offers the longest wheelbase in the class which is 0.6-inches more than what you get in the Elantra. Another thing worth noting here is that the Mazda 3 is not only the heavier sedan but also the one with the higher ground clearance. While the Corolla remains the dimensionally smaller sedan among all, which explains why it has lesser cabin space.

The changes done on the 2022 Honda Civic ensured it is safer this time around. The architecture and body shell of the 2022 Civic has been strengthened. The design of the front airbags has been changed to reduce serious injuries to the neck and brain in an event of a crash. Also, this time Honda has given rear-seat side airbags in the Civic for improved passengers protection. Rounding up the changes is the addition of Traffic Jam Assist and a front wide-view camera while the Touring trim gains low-speed automatic braking control. 


As for the safety ratings, the NHTSA is yet to crash-test the 2022 Civic while the IIHS has crash-tested it and gave the highest rating of "Good" in six out of six parameters and also awarded the 2022 Civic with the "Top Safety Pick+" award.

2022 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2022 Toyota Corolla

Both are America's favorite compact sedans and have since long fought neck-to-neck. But come 2022 and the Civic seems to have an edge over the competition. Both its naturally aspirated motor and the turbocharged motor are more powerful than Corolla's powertrain. The better fuel economy of the Civic is another advantage over the Corolla it enjoys.

2022 Toyota Corolla Sedan

While dimensionally, the Civic is not only bigger but also offers far better cabin and cargo space compared to the Corolla. This is a major selling point for the majority of buyers in the segment. Thus between the two, we feel this time Civic is a better choice.

2022 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2022 Mazda 3

Both the sedans have almost identical power and torque figures while the Civic significantly overtakes it in terms of fuel economy. The heavier Mazda 3 drives and handles well but the Civic isn't far behind in that matter with the 2022 update.

2022 Mazda 3 Sedan

Moving inside, you would see both the Mazda and the Honda offer premium-looking cabins which are comfortable and spacious both at the same time. Thus both the cars remain a good pick here.

2022 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2022 Hyundai Elantra

With its new design language, the Civic looks elegant while the Elantra gets a sharper-looking design. When it comes to performance the Civic comes out to be better than the Elantra. But the latter beats the former when it comes to gas mileage figures. Moving inside the Elantra offers a more spacious cabin owing to its larger dimensions while the Civic is the one with the biggest boot space.

2022 Hyundai Elantra Sedan

 As far as safety ratings are concerned both the cars got equal safety ratings from IIHS, but the Civic gets more brownie points for its advanced driver-aids features added this year which aren't seen on the Elantra. Between the two we feel the Elantra is a better option if you don't intend to drive a faster sedan at the expense of gas mileage.

Final Verdict

With a perfectly tweaked exterior and interior, the 2022 Honda Civic emerges as a perfect blend of beauty and performance. The interior is now fresh, minimalistic, and loaded with advanced tech. Its upgraded infotainment has now brought Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a standard feature. The safety is now at its level best with the added advanced driver-assist features under Honda Sensing. With all these changes, we do feel the 2022 Honda Civic will again be the undisputable leader of the compact sedan segment.
