The 2022 Civic Sedan gets improve fuel economy over the outgoing 10th generation model. The biggest difference is with the LX trim that gets 2 mpg more on the highway and combined. All other models get just 1 mpg more in the city improving combined ratings for the Sport and Touring models by 1 mpg.

Nice to see a slight increase in fuel economy. Since they're using the same engines as the 10th gen Civic I wonder if this is because of the new design? Or did they actually make tweaks to the engine?

I discovered that the base weight dropped by 68 lbs, a big accomplishment if you ask me and a big contributing factor to the slightly improved MPG rating. Others should include engine tweaks as you mentioned and even other moving components (ex. transmission, drivetrain stuff, etc.)

more on weight here for anyone interested
