What is the 2021 Honda Civic?
Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) president Masahiko Nakamura confirmed the matter in an interview with Filipino media.
Specs of the eleventh-generation Civic are still unclear - all we know so far is that it has a rather sedate looking interior beneath its all-new smooth exterior design.
It also boasts an updated version of the Honda Sensing advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) suite.
Meanwhile, Honda is still keeping mum about what's powering the next-gen Civic, but it is possible that it gets slightly more fuel-efficient versions of the powertrains we see in the outgoing Civic.
Coming to Malaysia yes, but when?
The new Civic has been spotted multiple times doing its testing rounds in Thailand. But does it mean that we will be getting it very soon?
We'd advise you to temper your expectations a bit. Taking into account local sourcing and assembly (CKD), it typically takes between nine months to a year after a model's international debut before it arrives in Malaysia. At its earliest, this points to a late-2021 launch, but a 2022 one is likelier.
For now however, we still have the tenth-generation, FC-series Civic. Read our review of that here, and do watch the various in-depth videos we've prepped as below.
