I don't have a civic but test drove these today, as well as 2022 LX.
The best driving car was 2021 sport, feels crispier, more stable, more organic feel.
The 2022 is quieter but seems to float above the center of gravity...

Wish the 2021 sport MT was still available new.

It's quite possible that suspension is tuned differently between the models, I test drove Gen10 LX, probably '17 or '18 and found it deeply disappointing. A 1.5T equipped model felt like a complete different car. As for the driving experience for the same trim I find that handling is very similar, but the '22 definitely has more responsive gas pedal - it picks up speed easier and does smoother and quieter. I have not tried really stepping on it so far, but I am yet to hear and feel the turbo kick that is so obvious in the older car.

Love that 2101 Bolshevik Buggy in the background. There's a couple of these death traps driving around here.
