Honda Malaysia is set to debut the all-new 2016 Honda Civic Turbo pretty soon, as preliminary listings for the new sedan is already out on several sites. When the new Civic arrives, expect it to be available in two variants. Honda has already launched the new Civic in Thailand and Indonesia.
We expect to see Honda Malaysia introducing a base Civic as well as the range-topping Civic Turbo. The base Civic is likely going to utilize the outgoing model’s 2.0-litre SOHC i-VTEC engine, mated to a CVT.
The range-topping Civic Turbo receives a new turbocharged 1.5-litre VTEC turbo engine, which is available with an Earth Dreams Technology CVT. The new turbo four-cylinder manages 173 hp at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 220 Nm at 1,700 to 5,500 rpm.
Thanks to an ad we spotted on Mudah, it appears that the price of the Civic starts at RM115,900. We estimate that the Turbo variant will have a price of just below RM140,000 when it launches.
