4. Small engines that can

You have a choice between two engine options on the 2022 Honda Civic. A standard 2.0L four-cylinder is no slouch, making 158 hp and paired with a continuously variable transmission. At an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city and 40 mpg highway, the 2022 Honda Civic with the 2.0L engine can stretch the distance between fuel stops.

Or, choose the 2022 Honda Civic EX or Touring for a 180-hp, turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine. A CVT (continuously variable transmission) keeps the ride smooth around town and on the highway.

5. Going farther between fill-ups

When you opt for the EX or Touring trim on the 2022 sedan, the turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder with CVT gets an impressive EPA-estimated 42 mpg highway and 33 mpg city.
