2022 Honda Civic Prototype To Debut On Twitch Next Week

Honda is getting in with the young kids by launching the 11th generation Civic on Twitch. 

A new Civic will soon be among us, as Honda recently announced the global launch of the 11th iteration of its popular sedan will occur next Tuesday on the 17th of November. 

In an attempt to get in with the young crowd these days, the unveiling of this redesigned prototype will take place on a live stream on Honda’s Head2Head Twitch channel, and will be revealed at around 9:45 p.m. ET (10.45 a.m. Malaysian time on November 18th). 


To whet our appetites till the day of the launch, Honda has released an accompanying teaser trailer of what the upcoming Civic will look like. Looking past the fancy strobe lighting effects and the burnt orange exterior paint scheme, it would seem that from this short clip at least, the new Civic appears to have a more civilised design language than the outgoing model. 

While the front end looks to retain a similar sharp aesthetic as the current 10th generation Civic, slimmer LED headlights and a slimmer front grille gives it a more subtly elegant frontal aesthetic. 

Round the back however, major changes seem to be afoot. Gone are the boomerang-style rear lights, instead in its place are a set of more conventionally styled rear LED clusters. Though a hint of sportiness looks to still remain, thanks to a subtle integrated rear boot spoiler and twin oval tail-pipes housed within the body coloured rear diffuser. 

Speaking of tail-pipes, there is no word thus far on the powertrain variety of this upcoming Civic. The only detail confirmed by Honda in regards to this department is that there will both be a hot SI and Type R in the works for this next generation Civic. Continuing on the Type R, the Civic will be available in two bodywork guises, the typical sedan and a hatchback variant like what is seen on the Type R. The Civic coupe is to be discontinued after this generation, mainly in part due to low sales. 

Tentatively, this next generation Civic is to arrive in showrooms around the world next spring. Though seeing as the local Civic will be assembled here, it will probably be some time yet before it officially arrives here.
