Since last fall, the images circulating about the Honda Civic 2022 have been of the concept car unveiled in November. In the past few weeks, photos of a production model have appeared online, the work of a spy photographer in Asia.
Now we have something more official, a photo of the production version that was shared by Honda. It confirms what we already knew, that the model now has a sleek and decidedly pretty look.
Besides the photo, it's the other information contained in the Honda press release that proved interesting. Let's see what the company told us.
We're ready in Alliston
The next sedan version of the 2022 Civic will be built at Honda's Ontario plant in Alliston. Preparations are complete there and crews are ready to go. Note that the hatchback variant, which we'll hear about in several months, will be assembled in the U.S. for the first time, specifically at Honda's Indiana plant.
We're talking about an activity towards the end of the year. After that, we'll have more details about the Si and Type R sports car variants.
In its press release, Honda shares some information about the design philosophy that guided the designers of the new Civic. We learn that the approach that was put forward puts the human being first. Everything about the design is aimed at enriching the experience of the driver and occupants. This takes the form of a minimalist presentation inside, which puts ergonomics and simplicity first, so as not to complicate the life of the person behind the wheel. Also, the interior space has been maximized, once again to offer the occupants a more pleasant time.
Honda also mentions that they want to offer a safety-oriented experience. That also explains why the company is promising us better visibility from inside.
In short, we can't wait to see all this up close.
So far, we still don't know what's going to drive the 2022 Honda Civic. We may learn a little more on April 28 thanks to the Civic Tour, a series of two shows that will be held virtually this year. At 8 p.m. on the 28th, on the Live Nation channel via the Twitch platform, Honda will present its model and reveal information on its technical specifications. A second show is also planned for the summer.
The 2022 Honda Civic is just around the corner and we can't wait to see it.
