Honda Civic 1.5L Turbocharged With SENSING in showrooms now
We flew to Bangkok Thailand to get a first hand drive experience of the revised Honda Civic 1.5L with Honda’s SENSING safety features which we have already seen in the CR-V, Odyssey and Accord vehicles.
Honda Malaysia this weekend at Setia Convention Center is announcing that its Next Generation Advanced Safety Technology, Honda SENSING will now be available in its most popular 4-door vehicle the Revised Civic 1.5L Turbocharged.
This marks the fourth model in Honda Malaysia’s product line that is equipped with Honda SENSING, after the All-New CR-V that was launched in July this year followed by the Odyssey and Accord.
The upgraded Civic 1.5L Turbocharged with Honda SENSING will carry the same premium features that are currently available, which include stylish LED headlights for both front and rear, 7-inch Advanced Display Audio unit with i-MID that is Apple CarPlay compatible and Android Auto ready, and Honda LaneWatch.
With the introduction of Civic 1.5L Turbocharged with Honda SENSING, this advanced safety feature is now available in the SUV, MPV and sedan models from Honda Malaysia. The addition of this new safety feature is also in line with Honda Malaysia’s strategy to offer more advanced technology in their products.
Malaysian car buyers who want to test this Civic with Honda SENSING can tap into a host of driver-assist safety features, which are Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). These features provide alerts and assistance to drivers to avoid possible dangers or accidents on the road.
As part of the 10th generation Civic family, the 2020 Civic offers class-leading interior volume that rivals many midsize cars, proof that driving an exciting performance car doesn’t have to come with the sacrifice of everyday practicality. Front seat passengers enjoy generous amounts of leg and headroom and a cleverly designed center console offers a surprising amount of flexible storage space.
Rear seat passengers are treated to excellent legroom and headroom as well, and the generous, midsize-like cargo space – up to 15.1 cu. ft. in sedan and up to 12.1 cu. ft. in coupe – is supplemented by 60/40 split folding rear seatbacks to accommodate longer loads when necessary, with release handles for the seatbacks conveniently located in the trunk and the passenger compartment.
The Civic family is designed to achieve a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
