Facelifted Honda Civic Now Open for Booking
The new Honda Civic is now open for booking ahead of its official launch in Q4 2019. Starting today, all 98 Honda dealerships in Malaysia will be taking orders.
The 10th generation Civic has been around since 2016 and 50,000 units of the car have been sold since then. It has 82% of the C-segment market making it a leader in its class.
This facelifted Civic retains most of what made it a success but adds Honda Sensing technology for greater safety and convenience. Honda Sensing delivers three categories of safety suites that comprise eight features.
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF)
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
- Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
- Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS)
- Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Auto High-Beam (AHB)
The New Civic also comes with the following new features:
- Honda LaneWatch (camera view from passenger-side mirror)
- Front parking sensors
- New Front Bumper
- New Rear Bumper Garnish
- New Tailgate Spoiler
- New Black Painted Front Grille
- New 18″ Alloy Wheels
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Toichi Ishiyama said, “Over the years, the Civic continues to hold the leadership position in the C-segment. It has sold more than 133,000 units in Malaysia since its first introduction in 2001 and celebrated a historical milestone with the delivery of the 130,000 th Civic in early May this year. We are confident that the New Civic will not only continue to live up to its name, but also offer D-segment features with a sportier appearance and dynamic performance. The New Civic is the third Completely Knock-Down (CKD) model from Honda Malaysia to be introduced with Honda SENSING – the Next Generation Advanced Safety Technology – which offers a complete package that we believe will be attractive to customers in Malaysia.”
