2022 Honda Civic: test drive coming up...


I will be driving this 2022 Honda Civic Sport for the week.

So feel free to ask me any questions you might have. So far, a very nice compact sedan that is anything but "sporty"...

The Sport is definitely the best looking model imo, especially the wheels. Until the hatch is released anyway. A shame it only has 158hp and no manual though. I still like the 10th gen non-performance sedan and coupe Civic more though. The 10th gen exterior is just way more modern. The Si and Type R had way too many overstyled fake vents and large wings.

How is the audio?

What is the throttle lag from a standstill given the small turbo motor and CVT? A review posted by a prominent youtuber showed it to be attrocious--something approaching a second between slamming the accelerator down and the car having appreciable acceleration. That is a deal killer for me.

from a standstill, the whole thing is quite slow... (Although there is a Sport mode I haven't tried yet)
The Sport model doesn't have a turbo engine. The car I am driving has the regular 2.0 Liter from the base model. Things might be better with the turbo...
I just don't understand the idea of a "sport" model with the base engine and CVT. If at least they made the manual available.
A real Sport version should be a base model with some sporty bits, with the Turbo engine. At least...

I'm most curious about it as a value proposition. Hyundai, Kia, Honda, Subaru, and Toyota are kind of known for having the most value thanks to their features, pricepoint, reliability, and durability, and I would love to see how this car is in terms of value. Does it feel like you're getting your money's worth?

No problem racer boys. It will be tuned accordingly.

The "Sport" is a misnomer. It doesn't have the turbo engine which I can vouch for as quite good, even with the CVT.

Absolutely. The "Sport" should be an option package and not a specific model. As there is nothing sporty about it.
It's mostly a visual package. Except for the paddle shifter, mode drive, and somehow 2 extra speakers.

None of these actually make the car sportier. Nothing can make that CVT/base engine combo sporty...
