Honda is previewing a redesigned Civic hatchback with a new teaser image prior to its global debut on June 23. The hatch is based on the 11th generation Civic Compact Sedan, which debuted in late April.
The 2022 Civic Hatchback will be manufactured for the first time in the United States at Honda’s Greensburg, Indiana assembly plant and will be available later this year.Hatch was previously imported from England
Honda announced on Wednesday that the Civic hatchback will exhibit a European-style exterior style, “enhanced 5-door versatility,” and will retain the option of a 6-speed manual transmission.
The hatchback will be featured on Honda’s Youtube at a virtual concert on June 23rd at 9pm (EDT).
The price of the hatchback has not been announced.
The specifications of the 5-door model are unlikely to deviate significantly from the Civic sedan Given that the two share a platform.
Honda announced an overview of the new features of the sedan nearly two months ago, but will not announce the price until it goes on sale on June 16.
The 2022 Civic Sedan offers a fully digital instrument panel, sports driving mode, premium Bose stereo system and metal honeycomb accents throughout the dashboard as part of a simplified interior design.
The Civic Sedan is the first model of Honda’s redesigned model and is simplified for easy access to control of infotainment, climate and other features while minimizing interior and driver distraction. It has been converted.
The Civic Sedan offers new options for high-level touring trim, including a 10.2 inch full digital instrument display, a new 9 inch infotainment touch screen, and a Bose premium sound system.
With the LX and Sport’s lower trim, the standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine produces the same 158 hp as its predecessor, but comes with a standard idlestop system and a new catalytic converter design for urban fuel. Increase efficiency by 1 mile Driving, according to EPA estimates.
In the upper EX and touring trim, the Civic sedan is equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower, an increase of 6 horsepower over its predecessor. The turbo engine also gets 1 mpg in the city cycle, Honda said.
While Civic sedans sell more than hatchbacks, Honda sees the 5-door as an alternative to crossovers, offering sportier handling and similar utilities at a lower price.
