Honda's new Civic arrives Malaysia and is now unified with 1 engine choice, the thrusty 1.5L VTEC Turbo 4 cylinder, spanning across all 3 variants, which also sees an increase of 8ps to 182ps and 20nm up in torque.

182ps / 240nm / 1.5L VTEC Turbo 4cyl / 7 speed CVT / E RM125,634 / V RM138,043 / RS RM144,350



This 11th-gen body, named the FE has grown a bit larger than its predecessor too at 4,678mm long (+30mm) 1,802mm wide (+3mm) 1,415mm tall (-1mm) and a wheelbase of 2,733mm (+33mm) which in fact did seem noticeably bigger in real life. The new body is even more rigid and is tuned for better ride and handling.



There's an updated CVT transmission as well, has 7 speed and will feature paddle shifters on the V and RS variants, along with Eco, Normal and Sport which also alters the CVT's characteristics, apart from ecu mapping. This transmission is said to have been tuned for better performance via vigorous testing in the UK, US, and promises improved responsiveness.

The silhouette of its previous FC gen predecessor has been completely eradicated with the new FE's much bolder, muscular physique. The sharp lines, crab claw tailights and wing face have all been replaced for a cleaner, more grown up look. The bonnet now seem longer as well, as the A pillars have receded by 50mm, further upping its perceived status.

I thought RS supposed to be the most minimalist, raw, and lightest spec to maximise performance.

Yeah so for Honda, RS means Road Sailing, sounds far from being performance oriented, unlike the more commonly known Porsche RS for RennSport. For that they have the Type R
