Honda Civic FC (2016-Present)

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.

Villi
1.8S (2016)
Bought used, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 15.6 km/litre (6.4 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 600 km/month
    - One of the nicest looking cars on the road.
    - Great cabin design - Simple and straight forward but focused on the driver's needs.
    - Fuel efficiency - Nuff said. 11 litres more than your typical myvi but offers way more efficiency in mileage (with room for higher speeds too)
    - Low height - great for taking tighter corners
    - Great stock suspension - Comfortable and doesn't punish you if you take speed bumps slightly faster than normal.
    - Extremely affordable maintenance. Min 200+ Max 500+
    - Straight forward warranty policy from Honda which is customer friendly to understand. May be strict at times.
    - Lovely speedometer- Straight forward user-friendly design with options to choose from for your driving preference. Screen
    - The 1.8 engine is sufficient - Reduced costs for maintenance and still as capable for personal driving experience.
    - Great braking system - The car's braking system is very much responsive and tuned to the weight of the car. Light to touch yet responsive on the pressure.
    - Windscreen gets stone chips easily - Read more on this and I recommend to every future owner to get windscreen insurance! It's a MUST HAVE. PPF if you have extra budget. The car is naturally lower than most and if you love speed, your windscreen is at much higher risk.
    - CVT - low-speed jerk. CVTs are great until they're at low-speeds or at cold starts. They jerk and they remind you that nothing's perfect in this world.
    - Driver's blindspot area is huge. May take a new owner some time getting used to this vehicle. Combine this with the car's height, an inexperienced driver may make expensive mistakes.
    - Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) - the civic has one of the poorest insulation from outside noise. Tyre choice does affect it but the main solution is to get additional insulation.
    - Sub-par dashboard assembly - Ugh. The rattling. You can tell the civic was built for super smooth roads. On Malaysian roads, they sometime reveal the downside of an idealistic design.
    - Steering rack - A faulty design by the supplier to Honda, this legendary issue plagues all Honda Civics. From 2016 to 2020, all Honda Civics have this DNA. Common symptom includes vibration and feedback when turning the steering wheel fully. Covered by Warranty. Minor issue if you treat your car well.
    - Basic sound system. If you're thinking of upgrading, think about your warranty for wiring and electronics first.
    - Honda has QC problems at times - but forgivable for their recall initiatives that usually hassle-free and straight forward to owners.
