The all-new 2022 Honda Civic, the 11th. The Civic was recognized for the third time by the North American jury of automotive journalists, winning the 10th generation Civic in 2016 and the 8th generation in 2006.
This is the fourth time in the last six years that a Honda model has received the North American Car or Truck of the Year Award after the Honda Civic (2016), Honda Ridgeline (2017), and Honda Accord (2018).
“The Honda Civic has long set the standard by which other compact cars are measured, and this all-new Civic has raised the bar in every possible way,” said Michael Kistemaker, vice president of national sales for Honda, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re especially proud of the Civic development team in Japan and our manufacturing partners at our plants in Greensburg, Indiana, and Alliston, Ontario, where the 2022 Civic Sedan, Hatchback, and Si will be built.”
The North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year Awards recognize excellence in innovation, design, safety features, performance, technology, driver satisfaction, and value. Launched in 1994, the competitions are judged by 50 professional automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who work for independent magazines, television, radio, newspapers, and industry websites.
The all-new Honda Civic sedans, hatchbacks, and Si models have been redesigned from the ground up with a more rugged body structure, high-quality interior, and advanced and upgraded chassis wrapped in a more sophisticated, stylish, and sporty design with comfort. Drive options include a high-torque VTEC turbo engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. The 2022 Civic also includes a multitude of new standard technologies for safety, driver assistance, and connected vehicles.
