From RM 170k, a recond (FL1) Honda Civic Hatchback is the diet Type R that you can afford 01

For over 25 years and through five generations, the Honda Civic Type R has earned a reputation as a driver-focused machine that prioritizes lightness, power, and grip in the pursuit of speed. While the Civic Type R has evolved from a high-revving, naturally aspirated cult hero to a turbocharged powerhouse over its last three generations, it has—except for the FD2 Type R generation—always been a hatchback.

In Malaysia, the Honda Civic (non-Type R) is only available as a sedan. However, if the full-fat (FL5) Civic Type R is too expensive, there is an alternative on WapCar's Cars for Sale page: the FL1 Honda Civic Hatchback, featuring the same 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo as our officially sold units, with prices starting at RM 170k. Interested in a "diet" Civic Type R?

The Honda Civic Hatchback is sold in markets such as Japan, Europe, and the USA. With powertrains mirroring the sedan available in Malaysia, the Civic Hatchback features a 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo that produces 182 PS and 240 Nm. The engine is mated to a CVT-automatic transmission driving the front wheels.

Aside from its body style, the Civic Hatchback offers identical passenger space inside. However, thanks to its sloping rear tailgate, the Civic Hatchback provides substantially more cargo space in the boot—697 litres versus the sedan’s 497 litres.

As seen in the advertisement, selected recond Civic Hatchback units also feature a Blind Spot Information System (BSI) instead of the Honda LaneWatch system. Additionally, some recond units also include a Bose audio system for better sound quality.

Why Buy a Recond Honda Civic Hatchback?

This choice comes down to the cool factor. Driving a Civic Hatchback means you will stand out in a sea of sedan models, with the added benefit of stronger value retention due to its uniqueness.

Owners will also benefit from features such as the BSI system and larger 693-litre boot capacity for added practicality. Plus, given its powertrain, the Civic Hatchback will be relatively straightforward to maintain, as it is powered by the same engine as the local Civic model.

At current prices of RM 170k, this is comparable to the top-tier Honda Civic 2.0 e:HEV RS variant at RM 167,900. However, the RS variant offers more tech, greater fuel efficiency, and better performance.

Conclusion

A recond Honda Civic Hatchback is a cool way to stand out in a crowd and at a rather reasonable price.

Arvind can't remember a time when he didn't wheel around a HotWheels car. This love evolved into an interest in Tamiya and RC cars and finally the real deal 1:1 scale stuff. Passion finally lead to formal training in Mechanical Engineering. Instead of the bigger picture, he obsesses with the final drive ratio and spring rates of cars and spends the weekends wondering why a Perodua Myvi is so fast.
