1998 Integra GSR / 2022 Civic Sport Hatch
Hey all!

Placed a deposit on the first Boost Blue Sport Hatch to come into my dealership a few weeks ago and it arrived on Monday! Owned it 48 hours and already have 140 miles on the clock.

I do work in service as a technician, and this is my first brand new car. I decided to retire my '98 Integra from daily driver duty as the prices just keep inflating on them, and always wanted to be the only one to touch a car service-wise. I'll be reporting back with any nuances, TSBs, explain recalls (hopefully there won't be any) etc!

So far, absolutely loving this car. Compared to the last generation, this feels almost on par with Acura products in the driving experience, thanks to the upscale fonts, chimes, road feel etc. The Civic really has come a long way over the past 10 years to have become this good!

Enjoy a few photos of the Boost Blue color, and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

Beautiful Car. Wish so much Honda would have made that an option for the Sport Touring Manual.

This car look way nicer in your pictures than the official released pictures lol
I actually thought "hey the new hatchback looks cool"
Never once had that sentiment during all the press releases.

2021 Civic Type-R Boost Blue
Personally I wished they would have kept BB a Type-R Exclusive color, but they didn't. The part that's even worse is the fact that it's on the Sport only, why? If I was getting a hatchback, I'd be getting the Sport Touring, and I wouldn't even be able to get BB on that? That really doesn't make sense to me and I feel like some people are definitely going through what I just described, which is really unfortunate. I guess on the bright side it doesn't matter to me that much since I'd be getting the Type-R anyways, but I know this will definitely apply to some people

Honda wants to sell cars - cars aren’t selling. Yo-yos out there keep buying those dumb SUV things. Honda has to do what the can to draw people in

Thank you! And yeah, it's really weird that "boost blue" can be had on the NA K20 variant CVT/Manual, but it's only on the CVT Sport Touring and not the manual, very odd choice by Honda.

I love the color hoping it's a manual too!
I wish it was, this is actually my first auto/CVT car I've ever purchased! I drove manual for 10 years in NJ/NYC traffic, was getting kind of over it LOL.

Manual?
I got a sport Touring In boost blue on order, Canadian
Very cool man! Let me get those Canadian spec heated seats and steering wheel lol!

My dealer actually couldn't factory order a manual for me, I asked when I originally talked to my friend who's a salesman at my dealer I work for. Our allocations for November were already really thin, and with my only car being an Integra I refuse to winter drive, I opted for the CVT. It's actually very nice to drive though, really don't regret the purchase one bit! The new CVT logic is much better than the 10th gen.

This car look way nicer in your pictures than the official released pictures lol

Haha thank you for the kind words! Funny enough they're just iPhone shots, and unedited to boot! The Honda press release photos were some weird looking renders for sure hahaha. Photos really don't do the color justice though.

Honestly people also said the same about Sonic Gray being exclusive on the Type R in 2019 and then it ended up on the Accord, CRV and other Civics in 2020/21. I feel like the only real exclusive R colors will always be Champ White and Phoenix Yellow. I'm looking forward to seeing the Type R official reveal, maybe I'll end up passing this car on to my girlfriend... haha

Beautiful! I usually don't love black wheels on a blue car but for some reason it really works with the Boost blue.

Congrats! I love this color too. Such a nice one. Even looks better in your photos or in person. I don't get why all the press shots just don't look that great.

I just picked up my Sonic Gray 2022 Sport Touring hatch the other day and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Woohoo!

I see what you mean but I think BB is different than Sonic Gray, color got way more popular than Sonic Gray and is more of a "race car" color, so bright and flashy, you only saw that on fast cars / "cool cars". That is until Toyota added it onto their Rav4, ew
