The Civic Ex also includes safety features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Park assists, Automated emergency braking, and a blind-spot monitoring system. The Civic Ex has received a Top Safety Pick+ grade from the IIHS in both hatchback and sedan versions. Automatic emergency braking, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams are standard on every Civic.
According to the EPA, the Civic is the mid-level EX which is the most fuel-efficient car, which gets 33 mpg in the city, 42 mpg on the highway, and 36 mpg combined.
The 2022 Civic can seat four adults in decent comfort, with 37.4 inches of rear-seat legroom and at least 37.1 inches of headroom, front or back; the back seat is designed ideally for a pair of people, but there’s space for a third to rest in the center. The front seats on the Civic are low, and it’s one of the few cars where we have to elevate the seat to have the optimum perspective. The Civic Ex has heated front seats as well.
The 2022 Civic Ex has a more streamlined interior design, with smoother lines and a dashboard with a full-width honeycomb-patterned mesh design element that neatly covers the air vents. A broader center console than the previous model appears to be less congested, with what appears to be a large, deep bin in front of the shift lever for storing smart phones, keys, and road-trip food. According to Honda, passenger space is nearly the same, while the cargo compartment is larger.
A 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display will be standard on the 2022 Civic, but a bigger 9.0-inch device, as well as a 10.2-inch digital gauge display, will be available as options. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard, and when combined with the bigger of the two displays, they also provide wifi connectivity. In-dash navigation, a Bose music system, and a wireless smartphone charging pad are among the other possibilities.
Even though the new Civic Ex has been completely revamped, Honda has opted to keep the engine options from the previous generation. The base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 horsepower, while the upgrade engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 180 horsepower. The new Civic Ex is only available as a front-wheel-drive vehicle.
