A well-loved Honda model by enthusiasts, the Civic recorded sales of more than 132,000 units locally, as of October 2021. From the Civic’s first arrival in the Philippines back in 1991, the all-new Honda Civic now features a sleeker sedan look, advanced technological features, and a powerful VTEC turbo engine that is standard across variants. Built with the grand concept of “Exhilarating Civic,” the all-new Civic was developed with core values, Design, Dynamics, and HMI (Human Machine Interface).
A total redesign from its predecessor, the all-new Civic features a design with the mix of elegance and sportiness. The compact sedan also grew in size and is now 29mm longer along with its wheelbase that is stretched by 37mm. For the fascia, the headlights that feature a new design shape come in eighter full LEDs or projector halogens. DRLs are standard across variants. The V Turbo and RS Turbo variants come with LED fog lights.
The sleeker body lines, the long bonnet, and its sloping roofline adds to the all-new Civic’s dynamic and elegant appearance.
