May 30, 2014

May 30, 2014 – Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda’s automobile business unit in the Philippines officially announces the arrival of the refreshed Honda Civic at Greenbelt 3 in Makati City. Unstoppable to regain its strong market presence, the day marked Honda’s third new model launch for 2014.

Continuously exuding the distinctive character that has carved the winning heritage of the Civic badge, the new Civic introduced today further improves Civic’s values of spirited driving, advanced technologies and premium and sporty styling.

Engineered to deliver spirited driving performance, the new Civic is available in both 2.0 and 1.8 liter engine displacements, both mated with 5-speed automatic transmission and capable to deliver maximum power output of 155 ps at 6,500 rpm for the 2.0 liter variant and 141 ps at 5,500 rpm for the 1.8 liter variants.

The “More Sporty Civic” stands to be the grand concept for this updated model, which is reinforced by its three major characteristics: sporty design, advanced features in fuel economy, entertainment and safety; and fun with dynamic driving and handling. Morevover, while it is no strange for Honda to offer factory-installed accessories to its models, Honda has decided to offer the Civic in three variants, two of which will come with genuine MUGEN and Modulo aero kits fitted as standard. The 2.0 EL MUGEN variant comes with MUGEN accessories – sports grille, front under spoiler, rear under spoiler, side under spoilers, wing-type trunk spoiler and a MUGEN emblem. The 1.8 E Modulo variant on the other hand is equipped with Modulo front under spoiler, rear under spoiler, side under spoilers, wing-type tailgate spoiler, and Modulo emblem. Also, the 1.8 E Modulo now sports a new honeycomb grille with noticeable single bar chrome accent, which it also shares with the base variant 1.8 S. The new Civic 2.0 EL MUGEN and 1.8 E Modulo come standard with fog lights, chrome handles and power retract side mirrors with integrated side turn lights. Furthermore, the new Civic now comes with a newly designed 16-inch three-dimensional, multi-spoke alloy wheels for its best selling 1.8 E variant to create an exciting balance between aerodynamic body styling and sportier stance, while the 2.0 EL MUGEN sports the signature 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels.

Get inside the new Civic and be greeted by the high-tech two-tiered dashboard carefully crafted for interactive dialogue between the Civic and the driver resulting to excellent ergonomics. With your hands steady on the steering wheel, experience the thrill of more spirited driving at your fingertips with the Civic’s race-inspired and fun-to-use paddle shift technology that delivers superb driving pleasure of a manual transmission. Should the driver opt for a more relaxed driving pace on long highway stretches, the cruise control is added to the new Civic.

For more convenience, multi-functional steering controls are added for more intuitive operation. These controls allow the driver to operate the Civic’s advanced technologies such as the intelligent multi information display (i-MID) which shows information such as the fuel consumption and vehicle settings. A new addition to the already advanced interior equipment of the Civic is the new 7-inch touch screen display audio. The application of such equipment minimizes the use of buttons making it easier to operate while radiating a premium feel. The 7-inch touch screen display audio features functions such as hands-free telephone (HFT) and audio streaming via Bluetooth connectivity. The new Civic is also equipped with different ports such as auxiliary, 2 USB slots, and the new HDMI port that lets you connect and mirror your smartphone on the touch screen display audio.

Matching the Civic’s driving performance is an unmatched comprehensive methodology on vehicle safety. As standard, the new Civic is equipped with driver and passenger SRS airbags and anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD). The 2.0 EL MUGEN variant comes with additional safety features such as side airbags, side curtain airbags, vehicle stability assist (VSA), child seat anchors, and driver and front passenger seatbelt reminder; enabling it to be 5-star Asean New Car Assessment Program (ASEAN-NCAP) safety rating compliant.
