Comparison of Pons & Cons
Pros
  • Much more spacious than the outgoing model, now with much improved head, shoulder and leg room. The boot is also more spacious. Overall, a much better hatchback that is more capable of doing the family-car duties.
  • The M135i xDrive with 306 PS / 450 Nm and all-wheel drive traction Incredibly fast, agile and capable. There is plenty of refinement too, thanks to an all-new platform.
  • Interior is much higher quality with the fitment of higher quality materials and fit and finish. Everything feels solid and good to touch.

  • One of the best handling front-wheel drive cars you can buy today
  • Slick 6-speed manual is a joy to work with
  • 2.0-litre turbo engine is a gem

  • Performance- The free-revving 2.0 litre turbocharged VTEC engine is powerful (310 PS, 400 Nm), responsive and with no discernible turbo lag, largely thanks to the repositioned VTEC variable lift, now on the exhaust camshaft. 

  • Ride and Handling- Clever suspension geometry paired with the helical limited slip differential offers superior handling capability usually not found in front-wheel-drive cars. Torque steer is virtually eliminated and the different driving modes (Comfort, Sport, +R) available allow for different damping modes depending on driving situations.

  • Manual Transmission- Not often you get a manual transmission only variant and a very good one at that. Alloy finished gear lever with shorter throws and sleek gear shifts adds to the driving satisfaction.

Cons
  • Moving the layout to front-wheel drive erased the one huge appeal of the 1 Series- a rear-wheel drive hatchback that no competitor offered.
  • Only the range-topping M135i xDrive available locally, which is BMW 5 Series pricing
  • The Active Sound Design that plays synthetic engine noise is not enjoyable, as it is too loud and borderline too artificial sounding.

  • Aggressive exterior may not be everyone's cup of tea

  • Lacks reverse camera and reverse sensors

  • No Honda Sensing

  • Safety Features- Basic ADAS features like Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist are absent. The Honda Civic Type R will surely benefit from the safety and driver assistant features available on the Honda Sensing.

  • Price- Gone are the days where Honda Civic Type R is a fairly affordable and accessible performance car. Priced from RM330,002, it is way more expensive than its closest rivals like the Volkswagen Golf R and not too far away from a faster and more premium Mercedes AMG A 35.

  • Exterior- The over-the-top exterior design with bonkers body kits may not be up to everyone’s liking.
