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.
