  • 2023 Honda Civic Type R too expensive? Honda Malaysia just undercut all recon dealers by up to RM 100k

    In case you missed the highlight of the motoring world this week, the all-new (FL5) Honda Civic Type R has been unleashed for the Malaysian market at a slightly gulp-inducing price of RM 399,900.

  • Only 19 units for 2023, here's how Honda Malaysia picks who gets to buy the FL5 Honda Civic Type R

    The FL5 generation Honda Civic Type R was launched in Malaysia earlier today, priced at RM 399,900. That’s quite a big jump from the previous FK8 generation model, which was last sold at circa RM 330k, but as you know, our 'shrink-git' Ringgit is also no longer what it was. Also, tight supply will keep prices high for quite a while. In Japan, there’s now a 2-year waiting list (it was at one point, up to 4 years) for the FL5 Civic Type R, and Honda dealers in Japan have been asked to stop taking

  • Say hello to the 2023 Honda Civic FL5 Type-R in Malaysia

    Some Honda fanboys would give up their mothers for the latest 2023 Honda Civic Type-R FL5, and that’s putting it kindly. Nonetheless, the opportunity to put their money where their mouth is finally here as pictures and videos have sprouted up on social media showing the latest VTEC venture here in Malaysia.
