The Sport trim is only $50 more expensive than last year's model.
Last month, Honda lifted the wraps off the all-new eleventh-generation 2022 Civic Sedan, featuring more refined styling, more efficient engines, and a redesigned cabin with upgraded tech. At the time, Honda didn't reveal any pricing details, but thanks to a leaked presentation slide, we now know how much it will cost when it goes on sale this year.
According to the slide, the entry-level LX model will start at $21,700, while the Sport variant will set you back $23,100. Moving up the range, the EX has a price tag of $24,700 and the range-topping Touring will set you back $28,300 excluding destination charges.
For comparison, the current 2021 Civic Sedan LX has a price tag of $21,250, making the all-new 2022 model only $450 more expensive. The Sport trim is only $50 more expensive than last year's model, while the EX is $300 more expensive and the Touring hasn't increased in price.
Another leaked slide confirms that the 2022 Honda Civic Sedan will go on sale on June 16. Keep in mind that Honda hasn't officially confirmed this, but the presentation slides look legit. Powering the LX and Sport trims is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, paired with a CVT.
The EX and Touring trims come get a more powerful 1.5-liter turbocharged four-pot producing 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, up from 174 hp and 162 lb-ft in last year's model. As standard, the Civic LX is equipped with a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster and a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Honda Sensing suite also comes as standard, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and traffic jam assist. Upgrading to the range-topping Touring trim adds more luxuries such as leather seats, 18-inch wheels, a larger nine-inch touchscreen and 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, LED fog lights, a premium audio system, and wireless charging.
