While good residual values aren't surprising for Honda, the redesigned 2022 Civic sedan may offer a surprisingly good value. With residual values as high as 75%, the all-new car may prove to be a particularly good car to lease.

According to Honda's latest residual value guide, the Civic with the highest residual value is the 2022 Civic Sport at 75%. That's based on a 24-month lease with 10,000 miles per year of driving and is 2% higher than both the LX and EX.

Choosing a 36-month lease brings that down to 69% for the Sport trim and 67% for the LX and EX. Interestingly, the Civic with the "worst" residual value is the range-topping Touring at 65%. The first Civic leases start at just $199/month.

To put this into perspective, Toyota's advertised lease on the 2021 Corolla L is based on a 36-month residual value of 60% here in Southern California. Compared to a 2021 Civic, the newest LX model has a 6% advantage (67% vs. 61).

Actual lease costs can be affected by factors like the selling price, lease rate (money factor), and incentives. For example, even though the Kia Forte LXS has a 58% residual, it has $1,930 in lease cash and a lower lease rate than the Civic.

In fact, the Forte ranks as one of this month's cheapest cars you can lease. Since the 2022 Civic is a brand-new model with no cash incentives, the first buyers may end up paying a premium in a market already beset by higher prices.
