Whether are you a Honda Civic fan or not, I believe many of you guys are eagerly waiting for this Thursday. This coming Thursday will be the official birth date of the all-new Malaysian version of Honda Civic (9th Generation). However, some managed to view the car earlier and some photos has been taken. These leaks photos are extracted from the internet and it is believe it has been taken in Malaysia. We are unable to disclose the source. Nevertheless, let’s have an early overview of the 9th Gen Civic in Malaysia.
From the front, Honda has fitted projector head lights to the all-new Civic. Overall the car looks more angular. The 9th generation, certainly looks more serious and aggressive looking.
Interestingly, this photo here indicated, there will be a Honda Civic Hybrid model. We hope Honda will be able to put an attractive price tag due to Malaysia’s government duty exemption for hybrid cars. We believe the Hybrid Civic model will be equipped with 1.5-litre Hybrid IMA (CVT) engine which is identical with the Honda CR-Z. As for the rear design, I’ll let you guys to comment below.
Interior wise, Honda will be using the 2 layer design found in the previous generation of Civic. From the photos we do notice that the top layer will display the digital speedometer and with an additional Multi-Information Display (MID). Steering wheel has been redesigned and the overall dashboard has been tweak to more driver focus and more executive look and feel.
We also heard the rumour that Honda Malaysia will be offering a 5 years warranty for the all-new 2012 Honda Civic and the service interval will be 10,000km instead of 5,000km. More information will be reported if we receive, else the all-new Honda Civic 2012 Malaysia will be unveiled tomorrow on 12 July 2012.
