2022 Honda Civic Vs. 2021 Honda Civic
Updated: Jul 18
The most obvious changes to the 2022 Civic are the exterior and interior appearance.
The first thing you will notice is that the 2022 Civic has a more simplified and sophisticated front end than the 2021 Civic does.
Looking at the side profile you will notice the hood on the 2022 Civic is slightly longer and less rounded than the 2021 Civic.
The claw-shaped tail lights have been replaced with a more traditional style tail light.
The rims were also simplified and given a more traditional look.
• The whole interior has been upgraded including the door controls, Steering wheel controls, tachometer, the front display, climate controls, pedals, shifter lever, and my favorite upgrade, the honeycomb vent spanning across the front dash.
• The seat material has stayed the same but the design has been upgraded.
• The gauges have been upgraded and simplified to give it a much cleaner look.
The key fob has also been updated. It is slightly smaller and rouned making it far less bulky than the previous design.
