2022 Honda Civic Hatchback

The 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback goes on sale today combining a Euro-inspired fastback style and world-class driving dynamics with improved versatility and an available 6-speed manual transmission.

All-new, the 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback has a starting MSRP* of $22,900.

To meet the needs and desires of young, active buyers, the new Civic Hatchback also features new standard safety technologies and a new sporty and simple interior design with increased versatility, including the largest back seat in Civic Hatchback history. For the first time, Civic Hatchback is built in the U.S. with production at the Honda auto plant in Greensburg, Indiana using domestic and globally-sourced parts.

“This is the most fun-to-drive Civic Hatchback we’ve ever made,” said Dave Gardner, executive vice president of National Operations at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Our 11th-generation Civic Sedan is already a runaway success and now this all-new Civic Hatchback further amplifies the performance of the Civic lineup.”

Civic Hatchback is the second in a series of new 11th generation Civic variants that also will include the high-performance Si and Civic Type R models.

Civic Hatchback has grown to represent more than 25 percent of all Civic sales and the all-new 2022 Civic Hatchback expands its appeal with an even sportier driving character, especially when equipped with theavailable6-speed manual transmission. Built on the same world-class platform as the all-new critically acclaimed 11th generation Civic Sedan, every 2022 Civic Hatchback benefits from extensive improvements to the body, chassis, powertrain, safety technology and overall performance.

Cutting-edge safety technology is standard on all Civics. The 2022 Civic Hatchbacks include Honda’s new next-gen driver and front passenger airbags and an expanded Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive and safety technology.
