The 2022 Honda Civic hatchback is almost here, since Honda has announced that it has started production at its Greensburg, Indiana plant. This is marks the first time that the Civic hatchback has been built in the US.
“We are proud the Indiana Auto Plant has been chosen to lead production in North America for an all-new model like the 2022 Civic Hatchback that is playing an increasingly important role in the U.S. market,” said Larry Geise, plant lead at IAP. “Being selected to build the Civic Hatchback speaks to the experienced workforce we have here in Indiana and highlights the confidence Honda has in our associates to build the quality cars and light trucks our customers love.”
For a refresher, the 2022 Civic hatchback will be offered with two engine options. The standard engine on the LX and Sport models is a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque. The EX-L and Sport Touring models are powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 180 hp and 177 lb-ft. For manual fans, the Sport and Sport Touring models are available with a six-speed manual transmission. A CVT is standard.
The pricing for the 2022 Civic hatchback starts at $23,915, including destination and it’s on sale now.
Now we have to wait and see what Honda has planned for the 2022 Civic Si, which we should see soon, since a report claims that it is arriving in November.
