The 2018 Honda Accord Sport is one of a handful of mainstream midsize sedans that you can get with a manual transmission. FoxNews.com Automotive Editor Gary Gastelu takes it for a spin to find out if you should.

Honda is keeping it real with the 2022 Civic Hatchback.

The all-new model will be the only Civic version available with a manual transmission, but its far from a stripped-out economy car.

Four trim levels – EX, Sport, EX-L and Sport Touring – will be offered. As with the Civic sedan, the four-door hatch will be available with either a 158 hp 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder or a 180 hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Both come standard with a CVT automatic transmission, but the manual is optional on the Sport and Sport Touring trims.

Along with its coupe-like roofline and shorter tail, the hatchback features a slightly different front end design than the sedan's to give it more of its own personality.

The cargo area has a 25-cubic-foot capacity with the rear seats up, compared to the 15-cubic-foot trunk on the sedan. Although it is shaped differently, the hatchback has a larger cargo volume than Honda's HR-V subcompact SUV.

The hatchback and sedan passenger compartments are largely the same, as are all of the available technologies, including the standard Honda Sensing package of electronic driver aids with automatic emergency brakes and adaptive cruise control. A 7-inch Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment system display comes on the first three trims and the Sport Touring gets a 9-inch screen.

A delivery date and pricing for the 2022 Civic hatchback hasn't been announced, but the outgoing 2021 model started at $23,590.

Honda will sell new Civic in Europe as hybrid-only model

Automotive News Europe 24 June, 2021 - 12:02pm

Honda will complete the electrification of its European lineup with the new-generation Civic hatchback.

The Civic will be offered in Europe only as a hybrid, Honda said in a statement on Thursday.

The compact car will use the automaker's e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) powertrain that mates a 1.5-liter gasoline engine to an electric motor.

The Civic hybrid will be sold alongside the Jazz hybrid small car and the CR-V hybrid compact SUV. A new hybrid HR-V small SUV is due to go on sale in Europe later this year. Honda also sells the E full-electric minicar in Europe.

The Civic will go on sale in Europe in the autumn next year. Its launch will complete the company's objective for all its European mainstream models to feature electrified powertrains by the end of 2022, Honda said.

Honda will no longer build European versions of the car in Swindon, England. The factory is being shuttered in July as the automaker shrinks its global manufacturing network. Honda has not said where the European models will be built.

Honda has confirmed that the hatchback will form the base of a new-generation Type R performance version that will arrive in 2022, but the car has not been confirmed for Europe.

The 11th-generation Civic was revealed during an online presentation (see video below) on Thursday in advance of sales in some markets later this year, including Japan and the U.S.

The Civic hatchback will be built in the U.S. for the first time, at Honda's plant Greensburg, Indiana. The hatchback variant was previously exported to the U.S. from the Swindon factory.

Honda sold 17,008 Civics in Europe last year, down 54 percent from the year before according to figures from market researchers JATO Dynamics. The car was Honda's third-biggest seller after the Jazz and CR-V.

Honda said it has focused on improving the driving dynamics of the new car, made possible in part by a stiffer body. The company claims a 19 percent improvement in torsional rigidity versus the previous model.

Inside, the Civic will have a 7-inch or  9-inch touchscreen depending on specification, while a new digital display in front of the driver is available in widths of 7 inches or 10.2 inches.

The car's honeycomb grille pattern is repeated on the dashboard, where it's used to hide the vents. Honda has retained physical dials for the heating and ventilation controls.

The Civic's launch date in Europe after July next year means it will come with a suite of active safety equipment mandated by the European Union, including intelligent speed assist that warns if the driver is exceeding the speed limit.

Further functions available include traffic jam assist to automatically slow and accelerate the car in slow moving traffic. Honda has also equipped the car with adaptive headlights.

This Is The 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback And Yes It Comes With A Stick Shift

Honda hopes new Civic hatchback to be basis for more efficient cars

Yahoo Finance 23 June, 2021 - 11:33pm

The eleventh generation model of the Civic reflects Honda's company-wide initiative dubbed Honda Architecture, which is aimed to increase the efficiency of development and to expand parts-sharing for mass-produced cars.

Yosuke Sato, development leader for Japan's second biggest automaker, told reporters this month the company utilised Honda Architecture to increase efficiency when developing the Civic's engine compartment by integrating parts and arrangements for components such as an inlet air cooler.

"Successor car models will overall become more efficient," Sato said.

Honda said in 2019 that it expected to reduce the number of man-hours spent on developing mass-production models by 30% by 2025 to accelerate its research and development in new technologies such as electrification and autonomous driving.

Honda has sold more than 27 million Civic vehicles worldwide across 10 different generational models since it was introduced in 1972. The Civic is one of Honda's top-selling cars in the United states.

The new Civic will offer features such as advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies.

While the Civic will be offered with the choice of a continuously variable transmission or a six-speed manual transmission this time, the carmaker said it plans to roll-out hybrid and sporty type-R versions next year.

Sales of the new Civic will start this fall in Japan and the United States, the company said, with the price to be revealed in August.

With the Civic coupe going away, some people were holding out hope that the eleventh-generation 2022 Honda Civic hatchback would get an Si variant. Unfortunately, Honda Canada says the next Civic Si will be sedan-only. It also seems a little odd, since Honda was touting the coupe-like look of the hatchback, and the fact that it's offered with manual transmissions.

Honda updated the Prelude for the 1999 model year, adding both power and massaged styling. This being the Type SH, it also has Honda’s genius ATTS torque vectoring system that counteracts understeer in this front-drive car.

Over the past several months after announcing that it will merge with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Churchill Capital IV (NYSE: CCIV), electric vehicle (EV) start-up Lucid Motors has been opening more studios around the U.S. while also ramping up advertising campaigns to raise brand awareness. Lucid even cleverly bought an ad spot during Elon Musk's appearance on Saturday Night Live last month, knowing that the Tesla CEO would attract a receptive audience. Lucid is heading in the final stretch before both entering production as well as closing its de-SPAC transaction with Churchill Capital IV.

Kia has introduced the 2022 Soul crossover to the US market. According to the announcement, the model arrives as a carryover with minor visual enhancements. Among the most obvious adjustment is the new Kia badge on the hood, liftgate and wheel center caps. Kia dropped the LX manual transmission variant in the current offering, pairing the two two powertrain options (2.0-liter I4 that can deliver 147hp and almost 179Nm and the 1.6-liter turbocharged I4 that has a peak performance of 201hp and 264

2022 Honda Civic Hatchback Looks Great and Offers a Manual

Car and Driver 23 June, 2021 - 08:00pm

The new hatch has the same clean styling as the sedan but offers more cargo space and a six-speed manual transmission on Sport and Sport Touring trims.

While the hatch previously came only with the turbo 1.5-liter inline-four, the 2022 Civic hatchback’s base LX and Sport trim levels now come with the same 158-hp naturally aspirated 2.0-liter inline-four as the sedan. The turbo 1.5-liter remains on the EX-L and Sport Touring trims, and it makes 180 horsepower. A CVT automatic is standard, while a six-speed manual will be available with either engine choice. The stick-shift is offered with the 2.0L engine on the Sport and with the 1.5L engine on the loaded Sport Touring.

The hatchback’s rear cargo area offers a considerable amount of space, with 25 cubic feet with the seats raised compared with the 15 cubic feet available in the sedan’s trunk. The rear seats fold 60/40 to expand the cargo area. Honda also says that the rear seat provides more legroom and headroom than before.

Honda has yet to release pricing for the 2022 Civic hatchback, but we expect it to start in the low-$20,000 range for the LX and top out at around $30,000 for a loaded Sport Touring. Production of the hatchback has moved from the U.K. to Honda’s plant in Indiana that builds the Civic sedan, and the hatch should reach dealerships within the next few months.
