Honda Malaysia today announced that the all-new 11th Generation Honda Civic FE is now officially open for booking.
Measuring 4,678 mm in length, 1,802 mm in width, 1,415 mm in height with a 2,735 mm wheelbase, the all-new Civic is larger and wider than before, with the expansion of rear thread to provide a lower and wider stance.
Built and designed using the Lazer Brazing technology, the Civic now comes with a sleeker roofline as well as a stronger and more rigid body.
While we don’t know the exact number of variants which will be offered here, it is certain that there will be an RS version, which will come with Black Painted Side Mirrors, Shark Fin Antenna, Outer Door Handles, New Trunk Spoiler and 18” Black Matte Alloy Wheels.
Other than that, the new LED Headlights with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) come in a new design, similar to the new Rear Combi LED Taillights.
It is said that there will no longer be a 1.8-litre engine, as all variants of the Civic will be powered by a 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine which is more powerful than the existing Civic 1.5 TC-P’s mill.
According to Honda Malaysia, engine outputs have been raised to a maximum power output of 182 PS and a segment-leading 240 Nm of torque.
There will be three driving modes – ECON, Normal and Sport Mode – which can be switched easily with Drive Mode Switch.
