This is the 2022 Honda Civic Prototype, and while it is billed as a prototype, it provides us with a good idea of what the production-spec model will look like.
When Honda built the 11th-generation Civic car, it gave the car a low-key and generous attitude, and its design was more refined and high-end than the upcoming models.
Honda said it will preview the new Civic car, which will debut in the United States in the spring of 2021, first on the sedan, then the Civic hatchback, Civic Si and Civic Type R.
The designers of this Japanese car manufacturer started with the low overall height and low hip point of the 10th-generation model, and began to adopt a new “thin and light” design spirit, which included a low hood and front fender, and a low-level belt.
At the front, there is a new vertical grille and unique headlights. Other key design elements include sharp horizontal shoulders and rear ends, a wider runway and new taillights. The prototype also wore a new color called solar flare pearl.
Although Honda has not yet shown us the interior images of the 2022 Civic prototype, it has released a sketch of the cabin. It exhibits a more minimalist and stylish design than current cars, and includes a 9-inch infotainment system, a digital instrument panel and a honeycomb mesh accent that extends the width of the dashboard and hides the air vents.
In addition to the design, Honda also said that the new Civic will introduce a number of new active and passive safety systems, such as upgrade kits for Honda sensor safety and driver assistance technology, as well as new airbag designs. It also has a new version of Honda’s “Advanced Compatibility Engineering” body structure to improve collision protection for occupants and pedestrians.
