Honda has finally revealed its new Civic 2022 in prototype form, featuring many design changes on the exterior and interior of the car.
Along with a change in design, the Japanese carmaker also made multiple tech additions to the new model with a range of safety features in the eleventh generation of the car.
A prototype of cars is usually the early samples designed to test a concept or process. The company said the model showcased recently is a prototype; most of the highlights will make their way into the actual car set for a launch next year.
The company has confirmed that the new Civic will be available in four models — a hatchback, executive sedan, performance-oriented Si model, and high-performance R model once it hits the production line.
Although the company hasn’t revealed the new Civic’s interiors but noted that the car would get a modern dashboard layout compared to the current model. The car will feature a nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a fully digital instrument panel, and the safety suite will include multiple airbags and several driver-assistive technologies.
All versions will have turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. The sportier versions shall get a manual gearbox option as well.
There are no reports of the car being introduced in Pakistan anytime soon, but as is custom with Honda Atlas, the Civic is usually introduced here a year or so after it is launched in the international market. Whether or not that will be the case for the 11th gen Civic, is yet to be seen.
