Honda Caryn Civic variant list

It appears that dealers are raring to start selling the 2016 Honda Civic in Malaysia. This posting on the Honda Caryn Facebook page provides us some insights on the variants and specifications for the tenth-generation model when it goes on sale here.

According to the “brochure,” the 2016 Civic will be offered in three variants – a sole NA and two turbo options. Let’s start with the naturally aspirated choice here (Civic 1.8), which will pack a 1.8 litre i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine making 141 PS at 6,500 rpm and 174 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.

As standard, six airbags are fitted here (dual frontal, sides, curtains), along with a reverse camera, electronic parking brake (with auto brake hold), rear air-con vents, eight-way powered seats, remote start, walk away auto door lock, a tilt sensor and Honda Display Audio infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen.

Moving into the turbo realm, we meet the Civic 1.5 Turbo, which adds on leather seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels, more premium trim garnishing and paddle shifters.

Finally, the top-spec here is the Civic 1.5 Turbo Premium. As the name suggests, all the equipment from the Turbo is available here, with the addition of dual-zone air-conditioning, full LED headlamps with auto leveling and LED fog lamps.

Both turbo variants get the brand-new 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo mill that outputs 173 PS at 5,500 rpm and 220 Nm of torque from 1,700 to 5,500 rpm. A CVT is mated to both the NA and turbocharged engines.

The equipment list mentioned here is certainly an interesting one, featuring items that aren’t available on some of the Civic’s competitors. However, we’ll wait for the official launch for confirmation on what is offered here. For now, do check out our review of the FC Civic in Chiang Mai and let us know what you think of the Malaysian-spec Civic thus far.
