A new Honda Civic Saloon has been revealed, giving you an idea of how the UK-bound hatchback version could look when it’s revealed later this year.

The saloon isn’t yet destined for our shores, but there’s every chance this Mazda 3 saloon alternative could arrive at a later date.

New 2022 Honda Civic Saloon design

We won’t be getting the Civic Saloon at launch in the UK, but it paves way for the hatchback

Though the UK won’t be getting this Honda Civic Saloon, at least at its launch, it does give you an idea of how the hatchback may look.

It’s a sharp but clean design

Upfront, the Civic gets thin LED headlights with a large lower grille element. That’s flanked by a piece of black trim stretching the width of the bumper.

Expect some of the styling elements to carry through to the hatch

There isn’t much fuss down the side of the car, with a clean-edged look swooping into a rear with L-shaped lights with a contrasting clear section to them. Sport models get a small ducktail spoiler, too.

New 2022 Honda Civic Saloon interior and infotainment

There’s a whole new dashboard design

The interior of the new Honda Civic Saloon is quite the departure from the old car. The infotainment system has been moved to the top of the dash rather than being placed centrally within it, with a honeycomb trim piece now cutting straight through the middle of the dashboard too.

The infotainment now sits atop the dash, rather than in the centre of it

That new infotainment system is 7-inches as standard, though a 9-inch version is available optionally, with both supporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

There’s a new digital driver’s display too

A new digital driver’s display is available, along with a revised steering wheel that has less chunky spokes than before.

New 2022 Honda Civic Saloon engines

There’s 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre engines to pick from

This US-spec Honda Civic Saloon uses a line-up of 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre petrol engines. The smaller-capacity engine actually produces more power than the larger option — with 180hp and 158hp respectively — thanks to using a turbocharger.

UK-bound Civics will likely use mild-hybrid tech

It’s likely the 1.5-litre engine would come to the UK if the Saloon makes its way here, and may make an appearance in the hatchback. Expect it to use some form of mild-hybrid tech if it does, though.

New 2022 Honda Civic Saloon price and release date

The new Honda Civic Saloon will go on sale in the US later in 2021, though no word yet on if it’ll eventually reach the UK. The last Civic Saloon did later in its life, so there’s every possibility of a repeat.

Expect this to pave way for the hatchback we will get though, which could be priced from around £23,000 when it arrives next year.
