Honda has been consistent in updating its fleet recently with a series of update left and right, such as the diesel-powered CR-V in Thailand, refreshed City in Malaysia, and the updated Odyssey in Indonesia. This time, it’s the Civic’s turn to have some for itself.
Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) is introducing the 2017 Civic 1.8 E CVT with a number of added functions. The refreshed compact sedan now has a power folding side mirrors and speed-sensing door locks, which are pretty handy for easy controls and safety, respectively. Additionally, the car can now be started and cooled even before the driver enters the car, thanks to its new remote engine start function system.
Along with the existing smart key entry system feature, the refreshed Civic now has a 'walk-away auto lock system' that automatically locks the vehicle when the key goes beyond 2.5 meters from the vehicle's sensors.
As for its horses, on the other hand, the updated compact sedan still performs like the current Civic. This is because it is powered by the same 1.8 CVT that generates 141 hp at 6,500 rpm and 171 Nm of torque at 4,300 rpm.
On the other hand, price for the 1.8 E CVT variant was also updated. An additional P10,000 is added for both variants; 1.8 E CVT now goes at P1,103,000, while the 1.8 E CVT Modulo now has a price tag of P1,158,000.
