Interior & Exterior Comparison

Honda Civic

The Honda Civic has been a compact vehicle since 2000, while before it occupied the subcompact class. The Honda Civic is positioned between the Honda Accord and Honda City/Fit in Honda‘s global car line-up as of 2021.

The 1st generation Honda Civic was introduced in July 1972 as a two-door coupe model, followed by a three-door hatchback. With a 1,169 cc transverse engine and front-wheel drive like the British Mini, the car offers good interior space despite its overall small dimensions.

For 2022 the Civic is all-new, with an updated interior and a redesigned body. Like the previous generation model, the 2022 Civic is available in both hatchback and sedan body styles.

(a) Cabin Storage

In the 2022 Civic, a more streamlined interior design debuts, with a dashboard featuring a full-width honeycomb-patterned mesh design element and cleaner lines that cleverly hides the air vents.
