The all-new, 2022 11th-generation Honda Civic (codenamed FE) has been officially launched in Thailand, the first country in the ASEAN region to do so. Honda's latest C-segment sedan will continue to do battle with the Toyota Corolla Altis and Mazda 3.

With that, the all-new FE Honda Civic spans three variants across the range, beginning with the EL all the way to the range-topping RS.

Prices for the all-new FE Honda Civic starts at THB 964,900 (~ RM 122k) and tops out at THB 1,199,900 (~ RM 151k). This is a hike in entry price compared to the FC-generation, which started at THB 874,000 (RM 110k). However, there's no longer a lesser 1.8-litre to start the range now.

Interestingly, the RS variant in the FE Civic is priced lower at THB 1,199,900 (~ RM 151k) than the equivalent RS FC-generation Civic, which asked for THB 1,219,000 (~ RM 154k).

All variants of the FE-generation Civic is propelled by the 1.5-litre, turbocharged 4-cylinder engine (178 PS, 240 Nm). In comparison to the FC-generation Civic's output (173 PS, 220 Nm), that's a 5 PS and 20 Nm bump in the FE-generation Civic.

This VTEC Turbo powerplant continues to be paired to a CVT-type transmission, sending drive to the front wheels.

Dimensions wise, the FE-generation Honda Civic is longer, wider, and sits lower than its FC-generation predecessor. The FE also boasts of a longer wheelbase, which is good news for ride comfort.

There is a new addition to the already-excellent Honda Sensing suite, called Lead Car Departure Notification (LCDN). Basically, the system alerts the driver when the car in front has moved ahead.

The millimeter-wave radar detects when the car in front starts from standstill traffic, and notifies the driver with audio and visual alerts if the accelerator pedal is not depressed.
