2022 Honda Civic Sedan for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Few cars have a history like that of the Honda Civic, which entered the auto scene in 1972 as a fuel-efficient alternative to American-made gas guzzlers. In the decades since, it’s been offered in both sedan and hatchback forms and has maintained a reputation for dependability and longevity. Honda has redesigned the Civic Sedan for the 2022 model year, with improvements to the body, chassis, and powertrain. The interior is simpler and more refined, with a restyled dash adorned with honeycomb mesh, and the center console’s special trim hides fingerprints and streaks. Below, we’ll share what you can expect from every trim of the ’22 Civic four-door.
Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy
The strictly front-wheel-drive 2022 Civic Sedan gives you four trim choices: the LX, Sport, EX, and Touring. The LX and Sport get a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter engine that makes 158 horsepower and 138 pounds-feet of torque. The LX has an EPA mileage rating of 31 mpg for city driving and 40 mpg on the highway, with the Sport achieving 30 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway. The EX and Touring get the improved 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder, which now delivers 180 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque, increases of 6 hp and 15 lb.-ft. over the 2021 version. Both engines are paired with the same advanced continuously variable transmission. The EX is rated at 33 city/42 highway, and the Touring comes in at 31 city/38 highway.
The LX has LED headlights, automatic high beams, push-button ignition, single-zone automatic climate control, a USB smartphone/audio interface, and a rear seat reminder that will alert drivers to check for rear occupants (especially sleeping children) before leaving the car. For 2022, the LX also gets a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a four-speaker audio system. The LX also gets the Honda Sensing bundle of advanced driving aids (forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition).
The snazzier Sport variant puts forth some athletic touches such as gloss-black exterior accents (on the side mirrors and wheels), chrome exhaust pipes, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, transmission paddle shifters, and sport pedals. It also gets Honda’s advanced Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock system, which lets you unlock and lock the vehicle free of the key fob.
The EX offers bang for your buck with heated side mirrors, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, illuminated vanity mirrors, rear beverage holders, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback with a folding center armrest. A blind-spot monitor is issued as well.
The features are deluxe on the Touring, which gets standard leather seats, wireless phone charging, LED fog lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-adjustable front seats, an overhead console sunglasses holder, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, three USB charge ports, and a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster – a first for the Civic. This highest-level trim also upgrades to a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen and adds integrated navigation, voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and an upmarket 12-speaker Bose audio system. The Touring’s active safety slate is enriched with rear cross-traffic alert and a low-speed braking control system that detects objects in front of or behind the vehicle and applies the brakes as necessary to avoid collision.
The LX is equipped with many new features, including 8-way power seats, push-button start, partial digital gauges, automatic climate control (single zone), power exterior mirrors, new dual-low beam design LED headlights with automatic on/off, and 16-inch wheels. The Sport adds appearance upgrades in the form of 18-inch wheels, black accents around the exterior, and a chrome exhaust, plus a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, paddle shifters, sport pedals, a special performance drive mode selector, and a sound system with eight speakers. The EX does away with the track-inspired aesthetics and sport drive mode but gets a one-touch power sliding moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, and heated side mirrors. The Touring is loaded up with the likes of LED fog lights and leather seats that are power-adjustable in front. It gets the drive mode selector mentioned for the Sport trim, and its gauges are improved as well with a 10.2″ digital cluster.
Safety and Technology
The Honda Sensing driver-assist technology suite (forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition). Automatic high beams and a rear seat reminder also come on all trims. The EX adds a blind-spot monitor, and the Touring gets rear cross-traffic alert and low-speed braking control. Honda has also redesigned the front airbags to lower the risk of brain injury by controlling head motions in certain collision situations. The car’s body structure is more rigid than before, with extra side-pillar reinforcement, to enhance passenger safety from all angles.
The base infotainment system is packed with features, such as a 7-inch color touchscreen, Bluetooth for hands-free phone use and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB ports, and a 160-watt audio system with two pairs of speakers. The Sport and EX trim move up to an eight-speaker, 180-watt sound unit. The infotainment system in the Touring is loaded with a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Bose sound system, 12 speakers, SiriusXM satellite radio, and wireless smartphone charging.
