Bookings currently open for latest gen Civic.
Paultan reader, Effie Muzaffar, has photographed a trailer carrying the initial lot of the 2016 Honda Civic to dealerships in Malaysia, ahead of its market launch. As of now, Honda Malaysia is accepting bookings for the tenth gen Civic across all dealerships.
The Honda Civic will be available in three trim levels, according to Paultan. They are: base 1.8, mid-range 1.5 Turbo and top-end 1.5 Turbo Premium. The base variant gets a 1.8L i-VTEC naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol unit that makes 141 hp and 174 Nm of torque
The top two variants will pack Honda’s new 1.5L VTEC TURBO turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit that makes 173 hp and 220 Nm of torque. Both are paired to a CVT with Earth Dreams technology as standard.
The next gen Civic will offer six airbags and eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat as standard in all variants. The 1.5L variants are available with features like LED headlamps (with LED DRLs), walk away auto lock, remote engine start, chrome door handles and 17 inch two tone alloy wheels.
Although not confirmed by Honda Malaysia yet, the Civic could also be available with optional Modulo accessories for further personalization, which was revealed at the 2016 Bangkok International Motor Show in March.
