2022 Honda Civic Sedan: new illustration

 

Although this is just an illustration, I think it shows a pretty accurate rendition of what the new Honda Civic sedan for 2022 will look like.

Which is basically: like a small Accord. I think it's a weird move. Since the Civic is a far more popular car than the Accord these days (325 650 Civics sold in 2019 Vs. 267 567 units of the Accord)) I am not sure why Honda would redesign its most popular sedan to look like a less popular model...

At least, in the picture above, it does look quite nice. Although more conservative than the current model. Most other car makers have really tried to make their new compact sedans stand out. Making sure the new models look much better and more modern than the previous generaions.

Not Honda...

Since the next Civic is mostly based on the current platform, it is expected to keep most of its powertrain  Which means 1.5 Liter Turbo and CVT. And probably no hybrid since that is a job for the Insight.

Front end like almost a corola

Looks better than the patent drawings, but not as good as the current generation.

The overall design looks much improved in this illustration.

Dumb look

If Honda was smart they'd just give up on the Insight name, and sell the car as a Civic Hybrid. What is even the point of 2 different nameplates when the actual cars are barely different from each other right now?

And yes, what's the point of making the new Civic look like the current Accord, when the Accord will be redesigned in a couple years anyway?

I completely agree about the Insight. They only sold around 23 000 of them last year. I really think they should kill it and sell a Hybrid version of the next Civic hatch instead. I bet they could sell at least that many of a new Civic Hybrid, and save quite a bit of money...
