In the next few months, we'll finally get to see the next generation of the Honda Civic, the 11th to arrive since 1973. At the beginning of April, Honda released an official image of the new Civic.

This one confirmed what we already knew, as the Civic concept was presented last November. In addition, an image taken in Asia by a spy photographer showed us that the concept's lines were very close to reality.

However, we learned a few more interesting details, including the brand's philosophy behind the design, as well as when we were to learn a little more about the model, including its technical specifications. Let's take a look at it together.

The human

Honda explains that the design philosophy of the new Civic is a human-centric affair. In fact, everything is designed to ensure that people have a safe and friendly experience with the car. That explains the minimalist design, especially inside where the emphasis is on ergonomics and space. Honda also promises increased visibility, which will translate into safer travel.

Also, efforts have been put on the interior space, once again to show how much the human being is a priority. On the other hand, the mechanical components have seen the places reserved for them reduced to a maximum.

In short, an interesting approach

The Civic Tour

The press release issued by Honda also included other relevant information. This is the case for the Civic Tour, a series of two shows that will take place virtually this year because of the pandemic. The first one will take place on April 28 at 8 p.m. and will be broadcast on the Live Nation channel, via the Twitch platform. For the occasion, we will see the 2022 Civic a little closer, but above all, we will have the opportunity to learn a little more about its specifications. This promises to be interesting.

Another event, to be held this summer on Honda's YouTube channel, is also on the schedule.


Finally, we've learned that Honda's Alliston, Ontario plant is ready to start production of the sedan version of the 2022 Civic. Information on the hatchback variant will come later. The hatchback will be built in a U.S. plant for the first time, which is Honda's Indiana plant.

We can expect some news towards the end of the year concerning this variant. Information about the Si and Type R models will follow in 2022, we guess.
