Honda & Civic Edit
The Honda Civic has long been a favourite among Malaysian drivers for its practicality and sportiness. It’s a well-rounded C-segment sedan that is great for families and single professionals alike. The latest Civic in Malaysia introduces a new 1.5L turbocharged engine and Honda SENSING to make it a better overall executive sedan.
Honda Civic Variants
The Honda Civic in Malaysia comes in three variants; the Civic 1.8 S, 1.5 TC, and 1.5 TC-P. The Honda Civic 1.8 S has a 1.8L naturally aspirated engine while the Honda Civic 1.5 TC and TC-P share a 1.5L turbocharged engine, with some differences in aesthetic and safety features.
Honda Civic Pricing
A new Honda Civic is priced from RM109,326.51 for the 1.8 S, RM125,018.09 for the 1.5 TC, and RM134,661.28 for the 1.5 TC-P variant.
There are a total of five colours available on the Honda Civic in Malaysia. Options include Lunar Silver Metallic, White Orchid Pearl, Passion Red Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, and Crystal Black Pearl.
All variants of the Honda Civic are well equipped but there are differences in the interior fittings. The 1.8 S variant gets fabric upholstery while the rest have leather. It also does not have paddle shifters, which are standard on the other variants. The 1.8 S and 1.5 TC have single zone auto air conditioning while the 1.5 TC-P has dual zone auto air conditioning. Other interior features that the three variants share include remote engine start and walk away auto lock, cruise control, ECON button, a full-colour LCD meter, rear air conditioning vents, 8-way driver power seat, and auto front wipers.
On the exterior, the Civic 1.8 S comes with halogen headlights and front fog lights while the others have LED all-around. It also has body-colored outer door handles instead of the chrome door handles on the other variants. To distinguish it from the other variants and give it a sportier look, the range-topping 1.5 TC-P is fitted with a trunk spoiler. All variants have auto headlights and LED daytime running lights. The variants are also distinguishable by their wheel size; the 1.8 S has 16-inch wheels, the 1.5 TC has 17-inch wheels, and the 1.5 TC-P gets 18-inch wheels.
The cabin of the Honda Civic is very spacious and comfortable thanks to its overall size and well-thought-out design. It has a 4,648 mm length, a 1,799 mm width, and a 1,416 mm height. It has an impressive 519L boot which is expandable thanks to the 60:40 foldable rear seats.
The infotainment system in the Honda Civic does not disappoint. It has a 7-inch advanced display audio system across all variants with Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity. It also has two USB ports, one HDMI port, Hands-Free Telephone (HFT) support, and eight speakers for a pleasant listening experience.
The 1.8L 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine in the Honda Civic 1.8 S puts out a maximum power of 141 PS (104 kW) at 6,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 174 Nm (17.4 kg-m) from 4,300 rpm. The 1.5L turbocharged engine in the 1.5 TC and 1.5 TC-P on the other hand, produces more power and torque. It puts out a maximum power of 173 PS (127 kW) at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 220 Nm (22.4 kg-m) at 1,700-5,500 rpm.
The 1.8 S variant can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 10.4 seconds, whereas the 1.5 TC and 1.5 TC-P variants do it in 8.2 seconds. All three variants put their power to the wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
In terms of safety, the Honda Civic does not disappoint. All variants are equipped with six SRS airbags, emergency locking retractor (ELR) seatbelts, and ISOFIX. They also have all the essential safety features including Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Agile Handle Assist (AHA), Auto Brake Hold (ABH), Hill Start Assist (HSA), front and rear reverse sensors, and a multi-angle rearview camera. However, the 1.8 S does not have a Honda LaneWatch camera, while the Honda SENSING safety suite is only available on the 1.5 TC-P.
Honda SENSING is a full suite of driver-assistive technologies that can detect other vehicles and pedestrians, and take actions to avoid collisions. There are eight technologies in the Honda SENSING; Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Low-Speed Follow (LSF), and Auto High Beam (AHB).
The Honda Civic is a versatile car that can serve a range of users from a family person who prioritizes safety to those who enjoy spirited drives on the weekend. With its powerful turbocharged engine, tasteful cabin, and host of safety features, it’s no wonder that the Honda Civic is the top C-segment sedan in Malaysia.
