2020 Honda Civic facelift – spec-by-spec comparison

The 2020 Honda Civic was officially introduced on Wednesday, and three variants of the locally-assembled model are available namely a base 1.8 S, a mid-spec 1.5 TC and range-topping 1.5 TC-P, at prices ranging from RM113,600 to RM139,600.

The styling revisions for the tenth-gen FC are pretty minimal. There’s a new front bumper, which integrates the black trim into a single piece running across the width of the unit, as well as a new rear bumper garnish. The range-topping 1.5 TC-P also gets a new piano black “wing” on the grille and a boot spoiler, as well as a new 18-inch alloy wheel.

No mechanical changes, including that of the powertrain/drivetrain combo. A normally-aspirated 1.8 litre SOHC four-pot offering 141 PS and 174 Nm powers the 1.8 S, while the two 1.5 variants feature the familiar L15B7 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo four-cylinder engine, which continues to offer 173 PS and 220 Nm. Both engine choices are paired with an Earth Dreams continuously variable transmission (CVT), which drives the front wheels.

New equipment being introduced with the facelift include front parking sensors, automatic wipers, and 60:40 split-folding rear seats (previously, a fixed bench), while the seven-inch Advanced Display Audio head unit now features a rotary on/off and volume control knob as well as physical function buttons.

The 1.5 TC now comes equipped with LED headlamps and fog lamps (previously, halogen units) as well as LaneWatch, while the 1.5 TC-P now features the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistance systems. Standard safety kit for the Civic includes six airbags, front parking sensors, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), ABS, EBD, brake assist, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and a reverse camera.

Five colours are available for the Civic facelift – Lunar Silver Metallic, White Orchid Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl and a new shade, Passion Red Pearl.

      Honda Civic FK8 vs Toyota Corolla, Mazda3, BMW3, C200.

      Honda Civic lost the beauty content @ C-segment in 2020.
      Last year even sold less than Non-Demanded Proton Iriz and Honda BR-V.

      It’s time for whole new model Civic FK9 to continue the fight.

    Very expensive cost RM 140K for only full spec with Honda Sensing but no honda sensing for the rest of civic variants, high cost of replacement parts of going to service everytime. Rather buy other c segment car

    Such disappointment for such huge Price Hike under PH brief rule. I hope we go back to the usual normal government that has kept prices down for 60 years.

    • I think most people who are commenting here have not driven the 1.5tc…. cakap syok sendiri or just refuse to accept the civic is definitely the best option in the segment.

  • 8.2s to 100km/h on Feb 28, 2020 at 8:02 pm

    8.2s to 100km/h is meaningless.
    Sudden pickup, Honda CVT gearbox is revving hard but no jalan.

    Even a secondhand BMW has more quality, more gadget, and performs much better than this facelifted Civic.

  • “Adds on” is an inaccurate way to differentiate between the specs of each variant. You don’t “add on” a 1.5l turbo to a base 1.8l model in the next variant up.

    What could be used instead is “differences”, “variations”, etc.

    Did Honda removed the Navigation for the TCP variant?

    • My wife’s 2020 face-lift don’t have it. Mine is 2016. I guess the trade off is worth the new tech instead. Tempted to swap the rims :)
