The Honda Civic dates back all the way to 1972, when it was first introduced to the lineup. While a hatchback version has cropped up in various generations through the years, the hatchback we know and love these days made its debut in the tenth generation after taking the ninth off. Now, the Honda Civic lineup enters its eleventh generation, and with that comes an all-new 2022 Honda Civic Sedan to Lima OH.
With an updated design inside and out, plus plenty of enhanced features and technologies, we’re stoked to be able to offer the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback to customers here in the Allen County, Ohio, Area.
The all-new Civic Hatchback features an even sportier exterior design than its predecessor, inspired by the popular European hot hatches found all over roads across the pond. The new design adopts a profile and silhouette that’s more coupe-like than the previous generation Hatchback, which lends to that sporty aesthetic. On the inside, engineers made sure the cabin was simple and clean, with an emphasis on visibility. Drivers can see more of what’s going on around them than ever before, improving safety.
These fundamental changes have also enabled things like a 19-percent increase in torsional rigidity and a larger hatchback opening, widened by approximately 1.6 inches. But they’re not the only things changed and improved in the Civic Hatchback. A newly available powertrain option has been introduced, and we cannot wait for you to test it out for yourself.
For the first time ever, the Civic Hatchback will be offered with a choice between two different engines. The standard option is a 2.0L 4-cylinder capable of generating 158 horsepower alongside 138 pound-feet of torque. But higher trim levels like the EX-L and Sport Touring will instead be powered by a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder that enhanced the sedan’s performance output to 180 hp and 177 lb-ft. of torque.
