Shortly after a handful of images of the production-spec 2022 Honda Civic leaked online, color options for the car have emerged.
According to a poster at the CivicXI forum, the new Civic will be offered in EX, Touring, LX, and Sport trim levels, with the EX-L trim of the outgoing model to be discontinued. Exterior and interior color combinations will vary depending on the trim level, but only black and gray interior configurations will be available.
Starting with the Civic EX, it will be offered in Aegean Blue, Lunar Silver, Meteorite Gray, Morning Mist, Platinum White, and Rallye Red, while the Touring will be offered with the same palette of colors, as well as Crystal Black and Sonic Gray. Meanwhile, the Civic LX gets the same colors as the EX but ditches Morning Mist in favor of Crystal Black.
Last but not least will be the 2022 Civic Sport, which will be available in Aegean Blue, Crystal Black, Lunar Silver, Meteorite Gray, Platinum White, Rallye Red, and Sonic Gray.
Leaked photos of the new car have confirmed that it will look virtually identical to the concept unveiled last year. As such, the new Civic adopts a more conservative design than the outgoing model and more closely resembles the Accord, thanks to the simplified headlight and taillights designs.
Honda will offer the new Civic in hatchback and sedan bodystyles. It is expected to retain the same range of engines as the outgoing model, including a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft (187 Nm) and a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 174 hp and 162 lb-ft (220 Nm). The range will be topped out by performance-focused Si and Type R variants.
