There are two stars at the Honda’s 2017 Bangkok International Motor Show stand, the all-new Honda CR-V and the Honda Civic Hatchback. We’ve showed you live galleries of both cars, and the Modulo-kitted CR-V, so here’s the missing piece – the Civic Hatch fully decked out in Modulo accessories.

Honda Thailand picked a Crystal Black Pearl Civic Hatch as model, and orange accents for the Modulo bits. The lower body kit includes a extensions to the front lip, side skirts and rear lip – all in orange here. In this sporty hatch’s case, the standard car already has the lips – Modulo adds another layer.

There’s also a more prominent wing at the top of the hatch, one that juts on a little at the sides. The lower wing, which joins the tail lamps, are unchanged. The Modulo catalogue also has unique 17-inch rims paired with tyres that similarly sized to the stock car – 215/50. You’ll also find chrome trim on the wing mirrors and just ahead of the A pillars, on the front wings. Illuminated door sill plates with the Civic logo, too, that’s a must!

Launched earlier this month in Thailand, the five-door hatch version of the latest Civic FC is available in a sole 1.5L Turbo CVT variant, priced at 1.169 million baht (RM149,620). The VTEC Turbo engine produces 173 PS at 5,500 rpm and 220 Nm of torque from 1,700 to 5,500 rpm. Unlike North America and Europe, there’s no six-speed manual option for Thailand. Paddle shifters, yes.

Dimension wise, the hatchback shares the same width (1,798 mm) and wheelbase (2,700 mm) as the sedan, but it’s taller (+20 mm) and shorter by 112 mm. Standard kit include 17-inch rims, LED headlights/DRLs/fog lamps, dual-zone air-con, a digital instrument panel, seven-inch touchscreen head unit (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), paddle shifters and black leather upholstery.

Also in are smart entry and push button start, remote engine start, cruise control, auto brake hold, 60:40 split-folding rear seats, reverse camera, and powered front seats. Safety-wise, the Civic Hatch comes with six airbags, VSA and Hill Start Assist.

I’m more on the sedan’s side with this new Civic. You?
