While SUVs have most automakers working overtime these days, Honda doubled down for 2022 with a full redesign of the car that arguably brought it to the party in the U.S. market: the Civic compact sedan.
Not that the automaker ignored its SUVs: The mid-size, five-seat Passport was freshened with a more rugged face and new Adventure trim level to distance it a little more from the family persona of its sibling SUV, the three-row Pilot.
Changes are mild for the rest of the Honda lineup. Here’s a look at what else is new from the automaker for 2022.
The Accord mid-size sedan got a light freshening for 2021 and replaced the gasoline version’s EX trim level with a Sport SE model. The related Accord Hybrid follows that lead for 2022 with a Sport trim level replacing the EX. The hybrid’s newest trim includes features like 19-inch alloy wheels, a black rear spoiler, LED headlamps and foglights, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, heated front seats and an eight-speaker audio system.
