Next-Generation 2022 Honda Civic Revealed In Patent Images

The patent images of the next Honda Civic show a car that has physically matured


  • This will be the 11th generation of the Honda Civic.

  • Design-wise, it’s far more subdued than the current car.

  • There are Honda Accord cues in the Civic.


We often criticize car designers for creating new designs that are too “out there”. This was the case when Honda revealed the current 10th generation Civic which was visually a far cry from the car it replaced. Honda must have taken note of comments made about the sometimes controversial styling of the car as these images of the 11th generation show a Civic that is far more subdued.

The biggest changes are at both extremities where, upfront, the fascia has a more Accord-like flat nose compared to the previously wedgier point. At the rear, the boomerang style taillights have been replaced by more common block-like units. The images shared by civicxi.com show a car that is sleeker with a slightly lower profile. This is matched by its beltline that remains flatter from one end to the other of the car.

It seems fairly obvious that Honda is looking to increase the Civic’s appeal by toning down the compact car’s overall looks. While this might not please fans of the 10th generation car, its more refined and classic lines will certainly the opposite effect on potential compact car buyers.
