Honda Civic, one of the best selling cars in America, is getting an overhaul and new technology for 2022. It now comes with a sporty and sophisticated new styling, passive and active safety systems, and advanced technology.
On November 18, 2020, Honda provided a glimpse into the all-new 2022 Civic on Twitch, a live stream entertainment service available. The 11th-generation Civic boasts characteristic Honda design elements such as low beltline, low and wide stance, and unique styling.
It also comes with more fuel-efficient and powerful powertrains, sportier and trendy chassis, and numerous other Civic features.
Civic Twitch – A First
With sponsorships to an esports team and a league, Honda has a heavy presence in esports and gaming. Their gaming platform includes collaboration with Twitch, the host to the Honda Head2Head gaming channel. Honda hopes to leverage the 17.5 million Twitch visitors to maintain a competitive edge in the market segment dominated by younger generations.
Civic Exterior Design
The Civic exterior design’s main focus was the Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum (M/M) philosophy to optimize for the driver and the passengers’ needs. The shape is dynamic, and it has a sporty stance, with the characteristic 10th generation low hip point and lower overall height.
The design focuses on low front fenders and hood and a low horizontal belt line to ground the body and accentuate the wheels and tires. There are substantial changes, such as the relocation of the front roof pillars and side mirrors, to maximize driver and passengers’ visibility.
The Civic M/M values are also apparent in the interior design with exceptional visibility and outstanding ergonomics while also adding modern technology and design elements.
The instrument panel is clear of clutter and is quite smooth. It has a honeycomb mesh design that conceals the vents and serves as a design element. The other top-of-the-range additions include the 9-inch full HD Display Audio touchscreen and all-digital meter cluster.
Civic Safety Features
The 11th-generation Civic introduces various new passive and active safety features. Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure has collision protection for both the driver and the passenger. The driver-assist technology and the airbag designs are now upgraded for improved safety. Get your 11th generation Honda Civic soon.
