Th 10th gen looks like nothing else on the road, the 11th gen looks as though it could be just another box with 4 wheels. So it's a no for me, as its just a daily, I have other cars as weekend toys that bring a smile to my face.

The 11th gen gets a no from me. Really not a fan of the redesign. Looks like a step in the wrong direction to me.

The 11th gen had a real opportunity to set a new standard in the class.
They blew it.
- The electronic upgrades just played catch up with the competitors.
- The 11th gen is longer, wider and the roof slopes less, yet there is no more interior space and the trunk is smaller.
- It is a bit uglier.
- Same powertains.

The only advantages that I can see are the infotainment and safety features should work better and the suspension is supposed to be more plush. It rides like an Accord.

I'm hoping that the new R brings some sizeable powertrain or suspension upgrades. Double wishbone in the front would get me to upgrade (it won't happen), the turbo 6-cyl engine from the TLX Type S would do it (mostly for the incredible sound - still won't happen), or the SH-AWD torque vectoring from the TLX Type S (unlikely).

Otherwise, trading up to the 11th Gen R would be no different than trading my 2019 R for a facelift 2020+ R. Same car.

Nope. I like my 10th hatch. If I sell, it’ll be to get something more utility oriented.

Do you plan to upgrade to the 11th gen Civic?

If yes, why?

If no, why not? What would you like to see in a future model to make you want to upgrade?


Myself, I don't see any good reason to upgrade. The only great thing is the new 9 inch head unit in the 2022 Touring. I wish I could upgrade the head unit of my 2018 Civic, but this alone is not a good reason to buy a new car. After all, the underlying functionality (Android maps for me) is basically the same.

I would want to upgrade if there was a new Honda Sensing system that got some self-driving capabilities, at least on the freeway. But as far as I can understand from the reviews, the 2022 Honda Sensing is basically the same.
I would only upgrade from my Hatchback if they have a Hatchback Si. Doubt that will happen though.

I can't buy the same model again.

Way too many options for me to choose from.

I don't plan on upgrading for several reasons. I am not a fan of the 11th gen styling, and it doesn't strike me as a new generation as it does a more drastic mid-cycle refresh. Car is heavier across the board, it uses what appears to be the same motor and CVT but tuned a little bit (which can be a good thing as the 1.5t is a good motor, but also rubs me they didn't try to improve the CVT), and the styling just doesn't strike me as it did with 10th gen. It reminds me of a 8th/9th gen in terms of boring, bland design, and the newest gen Accord in the small bits and pieces.

I'm sure it's a great car, just not for me.

I am not a Civic fan until gen 10 came along. It was love at first sight and still love how aggressive it looks. I have not even start tinkering with it.

No gen 11 for me, the reason is plain and simple. I hate the boring exterior design and 70s dashboard.

i will not be getting the 11th gen, its following the new trend of Ipad's stuck to the dashboard, they have given up on designing the screen into the dash. I understand beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and these eyes are not impressed. Plus with that much shiny black plastic everywhere.. It's going to get scratched up within a month by looking at it, and it will never be clean.

I won’t. I actually plan on getting the new GR86 as my next daily. (Already have a 650whp RWD manual weekend car).
To be honest, I wish I would have bought a 10th Gen SI coupe. I wanted the “most reliable” daily so I bought a 2020 Civic Sport Sedan with a manual transmission as I felt it was the most reliable.
I bought into the “oil dilution” nonsense, which has been proven not a thing to worry about as there are many high mileage SI civics thus far.
I love the coupe body style and knowing it’s the last one if I could do it again I’d have bought one of those.
i bought my 2020 Civic Sport Sedan 6MT outright in cash for $23,800 out the Door in CA dec 31st of last year. (Only 2600 miles thus far) but should have put $23000 down on an SI coupe.
I feel the SI coupe is still the best looking 10th Gen ??
Like others have stated, I wish Honda would make a SI hatch, but it’s looking that will be Type R only. From a business standpoint I understand, but wish it was an option. I am happy to see the NA motor still available with a manual transmission in the hatch however.
