Civic_18E-2

While an ad has just popped up here in Malaysia, the tenth-gen Honda Civic will soon arrive in Singapore too. Thanks to reader Calvin Teoh, we can now see some of the specs that our neighbours across the border will be getting, and it looks like a sole offering – a 1.6 litre VTEC model. Priced at SGD$109,999 (RM318k), the Civic is also open for booking.

A few key features highlighted in the brochure include LED daytime running lights with halogen headlamps, and a smart keyless entry system. The Civic in Singapore gets a push start button, an electronic parking brake and an Econ mode.

Other features for the interior include a leather upholstery, automatic dual-zone climate control and rear air-con vents. Standard is a seven-inch touchscreen headunit, USB and HDMI ports and a total of eight speakers. The tilt and telescopic adjustable, three-spoke steering wheel gets the usual buttons including audio control switches, cruise control, hands-free telephone switch and paddle shifters.

Apart from that, there are cup holders for both front and rear passengers, while also standard are two illuminated front vanity mirrors and an auto dimming rear view mirror. Meanwhile, the driver gets a manual height adjustable front seat, while both front windows come with auto up/down function.

A rear view camera and four rear sensors are also available. Delving further into safety, the Civic only comes with two airbags, along with ABS, vehicle stability assist (VSA) and hill-start assist.

As mentioned, it’s only available with one engine – a 1.6 litre SOHC i-VTEC mill that makes 125 PS at 6,500 rpm and 152 Nm of torque at 4,300 rpm, mated to a CVT gearbox. On paper, the model here will do 0-100 km/h in 11.6 seconds and has a top speed of 200 km/h.
