Honda Civic Reviews

  • 2020 Honda Civic Gallery

    Design

    Honda took the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach with the Civic facelift - changes are minimal, limited to the mild-restyled front bumper with updated front fog light housings and black front grille.

    The Civic 1.5 TC-P even receives a new rear spoiler.

    Dimensions

    2020 Honda Civic Dimensions
    Length 4,648 mm
    Width 1,799 mm
    Height 1,416 mm
    Wheelbase 2,700 mm

    Lighting

    The base Civic 1.8 S is equipped with halogen projector headlights, while both turbocharged variants of the Civic get LED headlights. 

    Despite the differences, all variants of the Civic get LED daytime running lights. 

    Wheels

    The Honda Civic is available with wheel sizes ranging from 16- to 18-inches.

  • Dashboard

    The updated 2020 Honda Civic's dashboard remains largely identical to the earlier model, with some minor tweaks - the climate controls now have fan speed control knobs, while the infotainment system has been updated with a physical volume knob and buttons.

    Space and Practicality

    Typical of Honda, interior practicality is unrivalled - storage spaces are aplenty and easy to reach, while the centre armrest console is spacious enough to store all your miscellaneous items. 

    Boot

    The Honda Civic has a 519-litre boot, which can be further expanded as the model now features 60:40 split-folding rear seats.

  • 2020 Honda Civic Specs and Features

    Safety Features

    As standard, all variants of the Honda Civic are equipped with 6 airbags, stability control, and traction control. 

    The Civic 1.5 TC-P further adds Honda LaneWatch and Honda Sensing ADAS suite. 

    Comfort Features

    All variants of the Honda Civic receive rear air-conditioning vents, while leather upholstery is standard fitment on turbocharged variants of the Civic. 

    In addition to those, an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat is fitted to all variants of the Civic.

    Infotainment

    Unlike the pre-facelifted Honda Civic, the new model gets an infotainment display with physical buttons and a volume knob.

    As before, the infotainment system has support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while audio is routed to an 8-speaker sound system. 

  • Engine

    The 2020 Honda Civic gets 2 engine options: 

    2020 Honda Civic Wheels
    Variant Engine Power Torque
    1.8 S 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated petrol 141 PS @ 6,500 rpm 174 Nm @ 4,300 rpm
    1.5 TC 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol 173 PS @ 5,500 rpm 220 Nm from 1,700 rpm to 5,500 rpm
    1.5 TC-P 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol 173 PS @ 5,500 rpm 220 Nm from 1,700 rpm to 5,500 rpm

    As such, turbocharged variants of the Civic are also the most powerful C-segment sedans you can buy.

    Transmission

    All variants of the Honda Civic feature a continuously variable transmission (CVT). 

    Both turbocharged versions of the Civic feature steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. 

    Drivetrain

    The Honda Civic is a front-wheel-drive model. 

  • Acceleration

    According to Honda, the Civic 1.8 S is able to complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in 10.4 seconds, while the turbocharged version completes the same 0-100 km/h dash in just 8.2 seconds. 

    Engine Performance

    With a generous 220 Nm of torque available from just 1,700 rpm, acceleration is effortless. 

    The Civic 1.8, on the other hand, has sufficient grunt for day-to-day driving conditions.

    Transmission Performance

    The CVT-type automatic is smooth, though for heavy-footed drivers, the CVT's delay to imitate a downshift may dampen the driving experience. 

    Steering and Handling

    Similar to the Honda HR-V RS, the Civic is also equipped with a variable-ratio steering rack.

    While it sounds good on paper, at times the Civic's steering lacks proper road feedback that robs away from the otherwise decent driving experience.

    Despite that, the steering weightage is on point, not too heavy or too light.

    If driving dynamics is your top priority, check out the Mazda 3 instead. 

  • Sound Proofing

    Soundproofing is not the Honda Civic's strongpoint - tyre and road noises are apparent from the cabin.

    Passenger Comfort

    The Honda Civic is reasonable comfortable, as the suspension is well-tuned, striking the fine balance between ride comfort and handling.

    That said, its low ride height could make ingress and egress a pain for elder folks.

  • Thanks to the small capacity turbocharged engine and CVT-type automatic, the Civic's fuel consumption is pretty decent. 

    In typical KL traffic, the Civic returns 7.7-litre/100 km, but improves to 6.6-litre/100 km on highways.

  • The 2020 Honda Civic is the embodiment of Honda's engineering - the turbocharged engine is strong, while the cabin practicality is bar none. Couple that with Honda Sensing and LaneWatch, it is no surprise why the Civic currently tops the C-segment sedan market. (2020 Honda Civic vs Toyota Corolla Altis)
