Say hello to the interior of the 2022 Honda Civic.

    More images of the Honda Civic sedan have been released, revealing its redesigned interior. The car is also pictured in RS trim for the first time.

    The sedan pictured will not be coming Down Under. Australia is set to receive the Civic hatch only as part of Honda’s new agency sales model.

    The Civic will feature carryover engines in the USA. A 1.5-litre turbocharged four producing 134kW of power and 240Nm of torque will be offered, alongside a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated four producing 117kW of power and 187Nm of torque.

    In Australia, the current Civic range kicks off with a 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder is available producing 104kW of power and 174Nm of torque. The turbocharged engine from the USA is shared with Australia.

    The hatch is likely to have an interior that follows closely in the footsteps of its sedan sibling.

    Pictured in left-hand drive guise, the new Civic features an all-new dash with a fresh infotainment display and digital gauge cluster. Honda hasn’t revealed how large the new screen is.

    There are still physical knobs for volume and climate control, as well as physical buttons on the steering wheel.

    A honeycomb accent runs along the entirety of the dash, mixing in with the air vents.

    A redesigned steering wheel is also shown with toggle switches rather than the circular button dials in the current car.

    The RS trim level offered in the USA sports some extra exterior niceties. It receives a black pack, as well as a chrome exhaust tip poking out from the rear.

    It appears there is an optional styling pack including gloss black front corner extensions, a rear diffuser, and side skirts.

    The exterior as a whole is a lot more subtle than the current car, with cleaner lines and restrained front and rear end styling.

    We are yet to see what technology and styling will carry over to right-hand drive.

    Hatch price and specs are still to be announced for Australia. As is the case with the current Civic, the 2022 hatch will likely be sourced from Thailand.

    The current-generation Civic Type R is no longer available for order, with the new model yet to be announced.

    Once announced, the new Type R is expected to be sourced from the USA rather than the UK.

    Honda sold 465 examples of the Civic, making it the fifth-best-selling vehicle in the small car segment.

    The Honda Civic faces tough competition from the likes of the ever-popular Toyota Corolla, recently-updated Hyundai i30, and the plush Mazda 3.
