In order to offer its clients some diversity inside the new Civic range, Honda also revealed the new 2022 Civic Hatchback, the latest addition to the all-new 11th-generation Civic lineup.
Building on the 2022 Civic Sedan that arrived in Honda dealerships earlier this month, the most fun-to-drive Civic Hatchback ever combines striking, Euro-inspired exterior styling and five-door versatility with an even sportier driving experience.
Available with a 6-speed manual transmission, the Civic Hatchback is designed to meet the needs of young, active buyers. It will be built in the U.S. for the first time, with production to begin later this year at Honda’s Greensburg, Indiana auto plant.
Inspired by the coupe-like profile of European sportbacks, the 2022 Civic Hatchback builds upon the Civic Sedan’s new clean and simple exterior design direction in a fresh and exhilarating new way. It also promises driving enthusiasts an even more dynamic experience, with ride and handling developed in Europe and an upgraded 6-speed manual transmission available with both the naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter and 1.5-liter turbocharged engines.
The Civic Hatchback includes all of the technological updates made to the 2022 Civic Sedan, including a new standard single-camera Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. Key options include a 9” color touchscreen, a Bose premium sound system and a 10.2-inch all-digital instrument display.
Reintroduced to the U.S. market with the 10th-generation Civic in 2016, the Civic Hatchback has proven itself a breakout hit and has grown to account for more than 20 percent of all Civic sales. With more than 1.7 million units sold in 10th generation form, the Civic has been the No. 1 selling vehicle in America – car or light truck – with first-time buyers, Millennials, Gen Z and multicultural customers over the last five years.
