First and foremost: yes, there will be a variable-speed Civic hatchback, not just in the entry-level model. Three-pedal enthusiasts will be able to get a six-speed manual gearbox equipped with a basic 2.0-liter engine or a hot-rod 1.5-liter turbocharger, the latter with top-of-the-line Sport Touring trim.
With that elephant, we can talk more about the changes in the new car compared to the sudden old one Tenth generation Honda Civic Hatchback.The first thing that impressed us was 2022 Civic The hatch is how smooth and simple the rear end looks. The dual spoilers on the old model are gone. This change makes all the visual effects different, emphasizing the smooth, coupe-like silhouette of the new car.
The styling changes are not limited to the Civic’s hips. Honda also changed the hood and grille panels, and the reverse tilt angle is in sharp contrast with the Civic sedan. meets the-Like a vertical panel. The grille itself has a unique honeycomb pattern. Armchair designer, please note: this car is a good overall course that teaches you how to distinguish similar vehicles with minimal changes in parts.
The new undecorated hatch-the actual hatch-is made of resin (don’t call it “plastic”, even if it is-Honda people will be angry), which allows the use of very slender hinges and more Big opening. This is especially important for this car, because Honda believes that many Civic hatchback buyers will use it to transport goods instead of people.
Honda did not provide us with precise cargo dimensions, but it said that we can expect the cargo dimensions to be slightly smaller than the old car, but it is still the best in its class. Folding the rear seats creates a cargo gulf that reminds us of the landing deck on the Death Star—Chuy could land the Millennium Falcon while drunk, with a paw tied to his belt. However, it is best for him to bring the bearing seat, because the seat will not be completely flat.
Up front, the cab of the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback is almost the same as that of the sedan, which is a good thing. We like the beautiful honeycomb pattern that hides the vents, and we are deeply impressed by the quality of the switchgear. The metal decoration on the climate control knob and window switch is a high-end touch, making you forget that the Civic is an entry-level car.If you forget, Civic is now an entry-level Honda car Fit is dead.
Honda will provide 2022 Civic hatchbacks in four trim levels. LX and Sport models will be equipped with a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2.0-liter engine is paired with the former’s continuously variable automatic transmission, and the latter is equipped with a six-speed joystick or CVT. Upgrade to EX-L or Sport Touring and you will get a 180-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. EX-L is equipped with an automatic transmission, while Sport Touring can use the joystick.
Honda talked about the sporty driving experience of the 2022 Civic hatchback, but we expect the difference between it and the sedan to be very small. In other words, compared with cars, hatchbacks have more aggressive tires and a stronger body structure. As for the specific chassis and suspension changes, our American Honda contact did not receive any details from the Japanese team. Even if the changes are small, we are fine; the new Civic sedan is already a small car with good performance.
One more tidbit: the new Civic hatchback will be assembled in Greensberg, Indiana. We all support the manufacture of more cars for the American market in the United States, which also allows Honda to better change its model mix according to which body style is more popular.
In general, we believe that the new 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback is a beautiful-looking car, and its creativity is much higher than that of entry-level models. But we want to know what the tame appearance will look like for the young people that the incubator aims to attract.This is the similarity of the old Civic hatchback The bewildered Civic Type R This makes it popular with children, who are very important to the Civic: if you don’t know, it is the best-selling vehicle among first-time new car buyers.
Honda said that the 2022 Civic hatchback will go on sale later this year. We will get more specific timetables and specifications as we approach the release date-and of course, the first drive.
