Less angular and more BMW like than ever before. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Dec. 1, 2020 Honda provided its first glimpse of the all-new 11th-gen 2022 Civic that is expected to arrive just before summer of 2021. And like almost every new model from every manufacturer, it follows the tried-and-true playbook of being lower and wider. The current 10th-gen was easily America's most popular car for the past four years. The 11th-generation Civic will build on that appeal with an even sportier, fun-to-drive new chassis, more powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, multiple new Civic-first features and technologies, and further advances in active and passive safety features and performance. 2020 Honda Civic Exterior Design The Civic redesign is following Honda’s “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” (M/M) philosophy. The styling, much more muted than the 10th gens numerous angular design elements, reminds me more of a BMW 3-series than ever before. From the 10th Gens low height and low hip point, designers lowered the hood and front fenders. To improve interior visibility, the front roof pillars were moved rearward to place them more in the visual periphery, and relocating the side mirrors to the doors for a clearer view through the front side windows. The new face of Civic features a new horizontal design while the profile shows the DLO moved rearward. The sharp horizontal shoulder, or C-line, carves a smoother arc from the front fender to the taillights. The new taillights appear as if they were borrowed from a 2011 Elantra and rightly so as that model was one of the best-looking C-segments ever produced. 2022 Honda Civic An interior rendering. Moving inside, the all-new Civic receives a makeover with what Honda calls improved ergonomics with the most modern design elements. Stretching the width of the dash is a honeycomb mesh accent which conceals the normally visually busy air vents. The 11th-generation will also introduce an all-digital driver's meter cluster and a new 9-inch full-HD Display Audio touchscreen mounted atop the low-set instrument panel. Civics standard Safety direction continues with new active and passive safety systems, including an upgraded suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies, and multiple new airbag designs. 2022 Honda Civic Does it look like a 3-Series to you? The 11th-generation will continue Civic's legacy of being built in North America and, for the first time, Civic Hatchback will be manufactured in the U.S., at the company's Greensburg, Indiana plant.
