The 2016 Honda Civic had its Malaysian launch in June, and Honda Malaysia has high hopes for the new model. It’s meant to rejuvenate the slow C-segment sedan market, once again putting the Civic nameplate at the top of consumers’ minds. Can the FC Civic achieve that feat?
Here we have the range-topping Civic 1.5TC Premium, with all the bells and whistles. Under the hood lies a direct-injection 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo engine with 171 hp and 220 Nm of torque, enough to get it to 100 km/h in 8.2 seconds. With a CVT, it’s efficient too, claimed to average 17.2 km/l.
It sure looks the part, with LED headlamps, dual-tone 17-inch wheels and chrome door handles. Keyless entry is standard across the range, complete with walk-away auto-lock and an Engine Remote Start function – all shown in the video above. Do watch our walk-around tour of the 2016 Honda Civic for full details.
