In 2022, the Honda Civic went through a full redesign, giving it an even more mature look and feel. With this design still fresh, we expect the 2023 Civic to be a carryover model. Here’s what to expect from the 2023 Honda Civic.
On the outside, the current Honda Civic took a step away from its Accord-based design, giving it some uniqueness within the lineup. This included a smaller grille with a more prominent “H” emblem, a more rounded nose, a shallower-raked rear glass, bold taillights, and a clean and clutter-free backside. The hatchback model is nearly identical, but its one-piece hatch and unique taillights set it apart. With this exterior design still very new, we expect no changes to the 2023 Civic.
Inside, the current Civic is sharp and simple with its thin and clutter-free dash that boasts a standard 7-inch dash-top touchscreen that’s upgradable to 9 inches. It also features a trio of round HVAC knobs, a dash-width chicken-wire-like insert, a sporty three-spoke steering wheel, and more.
Standard tech includes a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a four-speaker audio system. We expect the 2023 Civic to arrive with the same look and features.
The current Civic comes standard with a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Moving into the Sport and higher trims, it gains a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 180 hp. We expect these powertrains to remain in the 2023 Civic. What’s unknown is if the Type R or Si performance variants will come back in 2023 after taking 2022 off.
The current Civic hasn’t been through IIHS crash testing yet, but we know it comes well-equipped with the latest safety gear. Its standard equipment includes automatic emergency braking, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. Buyers can add blind-spot monitors and parking sensors. We expect the standard and optional safety gear to remain the same in the 2023 Civic.
Pricing & Release Date
There is no official on-sale date for the 2023 Civic, but we expect the sedan to arrive around June 2022, following this year’s release schedule. The hatchback model will come later in the year.
We expect the 2023 Civic’s ricing to remain close to the current model, which ranges from $22,715 to $29,315 (destination fees included).
