The all-new 2016 Civic is set to make its Philippine debut sometime in April or May this year. We know because Honda Cars Philippines (HCPI) already began taking reservations last month (see link). But before that happens, we found this quick 60-second TVC from Honda Indonesia that gives us a good idea what it’ll look like when it hits local showrooms in a few week’s time.
So what’s to look forward to with this all-new Civic? For starters, it now flaunts a sportier exterior. Highlighted by a meaner-looking front fascia, a coupe-like side profile, and a new rear end design, the overall look complements the Civic’s new weapon under the hood.
Yup, for the first time the Civic now comes with a turbocharged 1.5L VTEC engine that unleashes 172 hp. This powerplant will be available in top-of-the-line variant called the Civic RS Turbo.
As of the moment, HCPI has yet to reveal the car’s exact launch date. But it’s said that the 1.8E variant will be sold at P1.1-million while the 1.5 RS Turbo will be available at P1.3-million.
