With all the new reviews out for the 2022 Civic, here are some quotes of what journalists and reviewers had to say about the car.

Motor Trend - "Finding a major fault with the 2022 Honda Civic sedan during day-to-day driving is challenging. As a piece of egalitarian transportation, it's spectacular. It's comfortable and well equipped from the Sport to the Touring, with a smartly packaged and handsome, modern interior that complements the new dressed-down exterior aesthetic. It has no right to drive as well as it does, either. Still, our first order of business would be a well-timed purchase with Tire Rack so we might terrorize unsuspecting canyon-goers in their five-year-old hot hatches."

Car and Driver - "Our test of a 2022 Civic Touring suggests that those efficiency tweaks may have affected acceleration. With the turbo engine, the new Civic needs 7.5 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph and 15.8 seconds to cross the quarter-mile mark. We wrung out plenty of previous-gen Civics with the 1.5-liter turbo and a CVT, and they were all in the neighborhood of a 6.8-second sprint to 60 and a 15.2-second quarter-mile. The new car carries 130 more pounds, possibly gained in the interest of greater structural rigidity, but we'd expect that sort of weight gain to add just a tenth to 60-mph acceleration times."

CNET - "Dynamically, the Civic is a touch tighter and more composed than before thanks to some added body stiffening as well as suspension and steering upgrades. Turn-in for corners is snappy with satisfying heft in the steering wheel, while body roll is controlled and there's a healthy amount of grip from the 18-inch Goodyear Eagle Sport all-season tires.

After driving the new Civic back to back with the outgoing car, one thing that really stands out is the steering. In the 2022 model, there's greater feedback without unnecessary chatter over bumps and ruts. The brakes are also really nice with a firm pedal offering easy modulation of clamping power for confident stopping."

Driving.ca - "Flicking the paddle shifters on a twisty road when in Sport mode sees the Civic belie its sedan status. Everything feels crisper and, even when left to its own devices, the CVT adapts to changing terrain — it slipped down a cog whenever an uphill section was encountered."

Cars.com - "Materials quality was excellent in the top Touring trim level I drove, with leather seats and nicer trim up top. It’s also plenty spacious inside, with about average room for the category both front and back. The tall design to the overall exterior sheet metal comes in handy in the trunk, which feels quite capacious, with sufficient room in it to wonder if the upcoming hatchback model is really necessary. There’s a maturity to this design; it’s more friendly and approachable than futuristic and fantastical, but it again makes me wonder how Honda is going to zoot this up for its sporty models down the road. Guess we’ll have to wait and see."
