Generation FC (2016-Present)

Looking to buy a new Honda Civic in Malaysia? Research Honda Civic car prices, specs, safety, reviews & ratings at CarBase.my. You can also compare the Honda Civic against its rivals in Malaysia.

The tenth-generation FC Civic is available in three CKD locally-assembled variants – the 1.8L, 1.5L Turbo and 1.5L Turbo Premium with all the bells and whistles.

The new Civic’s fastback shape looks like nothing else in the market now, never mind the C-segment. The design is certainly bold, and will be the FC’s main selling point. Like or loathe?

Malaysian buyers get to choose from two engines – a 1.8 litre i-VTEC naturally-aspirated engine and the new 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo engine. Both are paired to G-design shift CVT transmissions (different units in 1.8 and 1.5 Turbo), which replace the five-speed conventional torque converter automatic employed in the previous two generations.

The base 1.8S variant surprised our office with its long list of standard equipment, all at a starting price that’s lower than the 1.8L FB it replaces, too.

Five colours are available, and they are Crystal Black Pearl, Dark Ruby Red Pearl (as per the City and more recently, HR-V), Modern Steel Metallic, White Orchid Pearl and Lunar Silver Metallic.

The standard Honda Malaysia five-year unlimited mileage warranty applies, and the service interval is 10,000 km, with five times alternate free labour when servicing.

1.8S (2015)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 15.3 km/litre (6.5 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 2,500 km/month
    - Very good fuel economy. (Fuel consumption is better then my old Myvi 1.3 manual.)
    - Compared to Honda Accord, the suspension is on the softer side. Comfortable ride for the family.
    - Very spacious rear seats and outstanding legroom.
    - For 1.8 spec, does not feel under powered. Engine revs at ~3000 when cruising at 150kmh on highway.
    - Super smooth CVT.
    - Compared to 1.5 turbo, I feel 1.8 version should be cheaper to maintain and less issues. 1.8 engine has a proven track record.
    - Super cold aircond and powerful ac blower.
    - Spacious boot. Boot lid closes easily without much force. Some say this is not solid, but I prefer it this way as you do not need to smash the boot lid every time you want to close it.
    - Quality of assembly can be improved. Noticed gaps between front headlamps and front bumper. This can be easily fixed during your scheduled servicing.
    - Loud road noise when driving at higher speed. This is more obvious for rear passengers. Suspect it is due to the stock Conti MC5 tyre which has a harder compound.
    - Head unit is a bit buggy when using Android Auto. Honda needs to update the firmware.
    - Poor sound quality from the stock speakers.
    - Rear seats not foldable.
    - Door cup holder (front and back) is a bit small. Only fits small/slim water bottles.
To improve
- Please make the rear seats foldable like the US version. This is not type R Civic.
- Please provide better speakers and head unit.
- Larger cupholders.
Yes, I would recommend this car
