New design of the 2022 Honda Civic hatchback

As expected, the Civic Hatchback largely incorporates the same styling cues as the sedan. It has an almost identical square face, with slim rectangular headlights flanking a mesh grille.

The side profile is largely similar, although the five-door body style results in a much steeper roofline.

The changes at the rear are a bit more drastic. Completely different tail lights were introduced and are connected by a light bar that spans the entire width of the tailgate. There is also a new fake diffuser, as well as a set of pseudo chrome tailpipes.

There’s an all-new dashboard design for the Civic Saloon

The interior of the new Honda Civic hatchback has yet to be revealed, but expect it to be similar to the sedan – which in itself is quite the departure from the old car. The infotainment system has been moved to the top of the dash rather than being placed in the center of it, with a piece of honeycomb trim now cutting directly through the middle of the dash.

The Honda Civic hatchback is powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline-electric hybrid engine, taken from the later Jazz and HR-Vs. No word on the unit numbers, but expect it to be quite similar to the HR-V which uses a pair of electric motors and the motor to produce 131bhp and 253Nm of torque.

It sends its power to the front wheels via a CVT gearbox, which operates similarly to an automatic, but with a single “gear”. This helps to optimize the revs for more efficiency or performance depending on how you drive.

2022 Honda Civic Hatchback Price and Release Date

It’s not yet clear how much the Honda Civic hatchback will cost you backwards, but expect it to have a slight increase over the current car’s £ 21,700 asking price to make up for the new hybrid engine setup. .

Sales are expected to start in the fall, so it shouldn’t be too long before we have more information on the sedan.
