New Honda 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims and Powertrains
The front-wheel-drive 2022 Civic Hatchback come in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX-L, and Sport Touring. A 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine making 158 horsepower powers the LX and Sport; a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is standard, and the Sport trim gets a bonus in the form of paddle shifters and a selectable sport mode. Better still for true driving enthusiasts, the Sport trim can be ordered with a six-speed manual transmission. The EPA-estimated fuel economy is 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway for the LX, 29 city/37 highway for the Sport with CVT, and 26 city/36 highway for the Sport with the 6-speed stick.
The EX-L and Sport Touring have a little more potency under the hood, getting a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 180 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. As with the lower trims, a CVT is the default, but the Sport Touring gets paddle shifters and a selectable sport mode while also being eligible for the six-speed manual. The EPA estimates the EX-L’s fuel economy at 31 city/39 highway. The Sport Touring with the CVT is rated at 30 city/37 highway, while in manual transmission form it gets 28 city/37 highway.
The base LX has a nice supply of standard amenities, including LED headlights, automatic high beams, push-button ignition, automatic climate control (single-zone), a 12-volt power outlet and USB smartphone/audio interface in the front console, and a 7-inch driver information display. The back seat splits 60/40 and folds to fit oversized items from the cargo area, which is equipped with a reversible side-pull cover for keeping valuables out of sight. The LX also gets an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a four-speaker audio system.
The LX also comes standard with Honda Sensing. This comprehensive active-safety package contains forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition.
The Sport is given some standout elements that add to its personality, like sport pedals, gloss-black mirror caps, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. It also gets Smart Entry with Walk-Away Auto Lock (Honda’s advanced keyless entry/exit system), paddle shifters (CVT models only), and a sound system with eight speakers.
The EX-L doesn’t come with the Sport’s gloss-black side mirrors, paddle shifters, or sport pedals, but it adds other great stuff: leather seats (heated in the front row), heated side mirrors, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a moonroof, two-zone automatic climate control, illuminated vanity mirrors, a front passenger seatback pocket, and a rear-seat center armrest with beverage holders. It’s also supplied with a blind-spot monitor, which allows you to change lanes with greater confidence.
The Sport Touring has the swankiest setup of all, getting sport pedals and paddle shifters along with LED fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, turn-signal indicators for the side mirrors, dual exhaust finishers, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, a wireless phone charger, a 10.2-inch driver information display, an overhead console sunglasses holder, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener, and three USB charging ports (one in the front console and two for the back seat).
This loaded trim also upgrades to a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen and adds voice recognition, integrated navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a pulsing 12-speaker Bose audio system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Its additional active driver aids consist of front and rear parking sensors, a rear cross-traffic monitor, and low-speed braking control for the CVT models (which can detect objects in front of and behind the vehicle and apply the brakes to reduce the chance of a collision).
