So just last year Honda took wraps off the latest generation Civic and honestly it doesn’t look anything like what we expected it to look like. So expectedly there were a lot of mixed opinions in the way it looked and for the year 2022, Honda is going to finally unveil the new generation Civic Type R.

While the 2022 Civic Type-R is going to share its design with the lesser sportier Civic Si, we are certainly expecting it to have a better reception by the audience than what the Civic got last year. After all, a year is more than enough for a design to grow on others. 2022 Honda Civic Type-R rivals the likes of 2022 Hyundai Veloster N, 2022 Volkswagen Golf R and 2022 MINI Clubman JCW.

2022 Honda Civic Type-R Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

So we are expecting the new generation 2022 Civic Type R to have a similar interior as the new Civic Si and with a bit more sportiness. The Interior of the new generation Civic is pretty much straightforward with not a lot of clutter and we genuinely love this execution. For the 2022 Civic Type R, the interior is themed majorly in Black with Red accents. There are red accents around the AC vents on the door trim and also on the seats. The low and wide dash isn’t as boring as it has been in the past—it’s visually separated with horizontal bands of some mesh-like plastic trim, and a 9.0-inch touchscreen breaks up the space with a floating type design. There are not really a lot of buttons in the cabin and does feel quite a lot racy, to be honest. 

2022 Honda Civic Type-R Front Seats

The seats are going to be sports ones wrapped in fabric and faux suede upholstery with Civic Type R badging. We are suspecting the same seats from the Civic Si can be used in the 2022 Civic Type R as well and they are really comfortable and supportive seats. This generation Civic Type R being a proper sportback shape means that it will be more practical than ever. So the rear seats are wide and accommodating and can seat three adults over shorter journeys though we would suggest using the car as 4 seats only.

Interior Passenger volume-wise the 2022 Civic Type R is the most spacious car here and that too by some considerable margin. And that could be down to the fact that it is a sportback while most of its competition belongs to the hatchback fraternity. So the 2022 Honda Civic Type-R is undoubtedly more spacious in both the front and second-row seats followed by the Mini Clubman JCW.

2022 Honda Civic Type-R Infotainment

Holding the center place on the dashboard of the 2022 Civic Type-R is a big 9-inch touchscreen that handles the infotainment duties. The system comes equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard and is paired to a 12-speaker Bose audio system. This is pretty decent, to say the least.

The vehicle also has two USB ports along with Bluetooth, HD Radio, and Sirius XM Radio. The touch is super responsive and while there can be a few jitters when the system boots, the experience is majorly fuss-free. Though we feel that the graphics and icons can be a bit better and there is just too much blue color which can also be changed.

2022 Honda Civic Type-R Cargo Capacity

The trunk on the 2022 Civic Type-R has just 14.4 cubic feet of storage available and while you can open up more room by folding down the rear seats, there is still not much space available at your disposal.

2022 Honda Civic Type-R Cargo Space

For most of your shopping runs, there will be quite enough room to keep the groceries and some extra stuff. The boot will be just enough to pack luggage for five individuals over a weekend trip.

2022 Civic Type R will have the smallest trunk of all the other cars in its class. Here it's the Hyundai Veloster N which has the most amount of space available with all the seats up while when folded down, it's the new Volkswagen Golf which has the roomiest trunk.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

There are plenty of spaces to keep your stuff around. The door bins are wide enough to hold large bottles but they are not rather very deep. Also, in the central dash is space to keep your coffee cups and is a wireless mobile phone charging pad. 

The front center armrest is big and deep enough to keep a lot of stuff there and the glove box is also quite massive. For the rear seat occupants, they get the standard cup holders in the fold-down center armrest and also some storage behind the front seats to keep some important documents.

2022 Honda Civic Type-R Creature Comforts

So the official feature list is not out yet but from the assumptions, we can say that you can expect all the basic features that you get in the competitor cars of this segment. The whole interior is done up in faux leather and you get proper sport seats. There are aluminum pedals as well for the sporty feel. Other basic features include an automatic climate control, faux leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a Bose premium sound system.

Verdict

The 2022 Civic Type R has always been a mini sports car which is also very practical and something that you can drive daily to everywhere. It is like that jack of all trades kind of a car. The interior is no doubt very premium and is among some of the best ones in the segment. And being a Honda, the space management inside the cabin is just too good. It is one very very impressive cabin to be in.
