Honda has just dropped the curtain on the all-new 2022 Civic Concept, and it looks pretty dope. While the outgoing model has a pretty contemporary design and doesn’t look outdated in any way, that hasn’t stopped Honda from trying something new. One glance at this eleventh-generation Civic Concept, and you might mistake it for a shrunken-down Accord. However, that is not a bad thing as the present-generation Accord is a pretty handsome-looking car. Honda revealed the 2022 Honda Civic Concept on an online streaming platform for gamers. And I must say, it definitely doesn’t look like the run-of-the-mill Civic.
The matte orange color certainly draws attention, while the dark-tinted windows and the eye-catching black finish on other areas keep your gaze planted. While this may only be a concept, for now, the eleventh-gen Honda Civic will hit showrooms late next year in select markets. It is apparent that the 2022 Civic Concept has an air of sportiness about it. That is a perception that is certainly helped by a few design elements. Upfront, there is an all-black and aggressively-sculpted bumper with a massive air dam in the middle and two vents in each corner.
The black grille looks sleek and is flanked by slender headlamps with striking LED DRL surrounds. The squatted coupe-like side profile gets matte black alloy wheels along with a black effect on the door mirrors and window surrounds. Meanwhile, the flared fenders and distinctive side skirts add to the sporty appeal of this Civic.

At the rear, the 2022 Civic Concept looks just as sharp and sporty as the rest of the car. There are blacked-out elements within the tail lamps, and exhaust surrounds, while a boot lip spoiler makes this rear-end seem more intimidating than a regular Civic. Being a concept, the interior of this Honda Civic isn’t fully baked as yet. However, it will be modernized and get newer tech to make it up-to-date.
The design of this interior has its focus set on minimalism and a general lack of clutter. This eleventh-generation iteration also incorporates a fully-digital driver’s display – a first for the Civic. Then there is the new 9-inch, full-HD touchscreen for the updated infotainment system, which should also be more advanced than the outgoing system on current-gen Hondas. To be honest, the outgoing one isn’t that good, neither in terms of its user-friendliness nor functionality.
Honda has used a sleek honeycomb design for the air vents which now stretches the whole width of the dashboard. As always, ergonomics and practicality will remain a priority in the 2022 Civic. The automaker’s “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” philosophy will be an integral part of the whole design and packaging of this interior.
Honda engineers have also repositioned the wing mirrors and expanded the driver’s view out of the windows, thus reducing blindspots as much as possible. The lowered dashboard and gauge cluster should further improve the overall visibility out of this car. The eleventh-generation Civic gets a more rigid and stronger chassis as well to enhance the overall safety and driving dynamics.
The newer design and updated technology will only make the saga of the 2022 Honda Civic more interesting. Being one of the best-selling cars in the world for so many decades, the Civic attends to audiences all over the globe and across the age spectrum. However, Honda says that Civic has become increasingly popular among Millennials and Gen-Z kids of our times. That is not really surprising given how this car has evolved over its eleven generations of existence. Its urbane design and modern onboard features, combined with fantastic reliability has made the Honda Civic quite appealing for the younger sect of the car-buying public.
