2022 Honda Civic Sedan for Sale in West Warwick, RI
Reinventing one of the world’s best-selling cars is a delicate task. So, Honda approached the 11th generation of the storied Civic with careful thought and deliberate design. The result is an all-new 2022 Civic Sedan that embraces the nameplate’s classic elements with a fresh, modern look.
The simplified body design features a low front end and a dropped beltline putting more focus on the wheels and tires and increasing the Civic Sedan’s resemblance to the midsized Accord. Plus, the windows are larger for a bright interior and greater view of the road. The cabin materials even look and feel a bit more upscale than they were in the last generation. A horizontal metal honeycomb mesh accent stretches across the dashboard. This and other distinctive touches cleverly combine modern design with a retro vibe that should hit home especially with the young drivers who make up the Civic’s main demographic.
Trims and Powertrain
The fully redesigned 2022 Civic Sedan comes in four trims: LX, Sport. EX, and Touring. In the LX and Sport, power comes from a 158 horsepower 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) manages the front wheels. The Sport gets an upgrade in the form of paddle shifters and a selectable drive mode for added performance. The official EPA-estimated fuel economy is 31 mpg around town and 40 mpg on the highway for the LX and 30 city/37 highway for the Sport.
A more powerful turbo four-cylinder is under the hood of the EX and Touring, offering 180 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. They also get a CVT and front-wheel drivetrain, and this time it’s the Touring that gets the paddle shifters and selectable sport mode. The EPA estimates are 33 city/42 highway for the EX and 31 city/38 highway for the Touring.
The base trim stands out with great standard features such as LED headlights, automatic high beams, push-button start, automatic temperature control, a USB smartphone/audio interface, and a rear seat reminder system. Plus, its infotainment system now has a 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), features that weren’t standard last model year (it still has Bluetooth and a four-speaker audio system). In addition to the ’22 Civic’s assortment of advanced airbags, the LX gets the updated Honda Sensing suite, containing collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, and traffic jam assist. Traffic sign recognition also makes its debut on this trim. The LX is compatible with HondaLink, too, a smartphone-based app that lets you schedule services for your Civic and keep tabs on its diagnostics.
The performance-inspired Sport gets a few more compelling features, like gloss-black side mirrors and wheels, a chrome-tipped exhaust, sport pedals, paddle shifters, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and an advanced keyless entry/exit system called Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock. It also gets double the number of speakers for a total of eight.
The EX takes a higher-end turn with its heated side mirrors, moonroof, rear beverage holders, illuminated vanity mirrors, passenger-side seatback pocket, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and 60/40-split folding rear seatback that also comes with a center armrest. To make lane changes safer, the EX has a standard blind-spot monitor.
The Touring tops the range with a compelling slate of top-notch amenities. Outside, it has heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rain-sensing wipers, LED fog lights, and front and rear parking sensors. The cabin gets an overhead console sunglasses holder, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, three USB charging ports, a Civic-first fully digital 10.2-inch driver information interface, and a wireless phone charger.
The Touring also receives a brand-new multimedia system with a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, navigation, voice recognition, and a premium 12-speaker Bose sound system. Rear cross-traffic alert and low-speed braking control are added to the driver-assist technology suite.
Standard Equipment by Trim Level
The standard equipment for the base LX begins with automatic climate control, push-button start, infotainment touchscreen, a 7-inch driver information screen, a fold-down rear seat, 16-inch steel wheels, and LED headlights. The Sport adds remote start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, an upgraded audio system, proximity keyless entry, and some track-inspired upgrades: sport pedals, chrome exhaust tips, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The EX is made even more comfortable with dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and a rear center armrest. It also gets a moonroof, intermittent wipers, a 60/40-split folding back seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, and heated side mirrors. The top-tier Touring includes leather seating, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable front seats, a 10-inch-diagonal driver information display, navigation, an upgraded audio system, a wireless device charging pad, rain-sensing windshield wipers, front and rear parking sensors, LED fog lights, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
