Alongside the all-new 2022Honda Civic (FE) sedan's ASEAN debut, Modulo has also unveiled their accessories package for the model in Thailand, further turning up the heat against its segment rival, the similarly-accessorised Toyota Corolla Altis GR Sport.
There's a range of things for customers to pick out - besides exterior enhancements, Modulo also offers interior accessories as well.
Starting things off is the Sport Package, the cheapest of the lot at THB 8,900 (~RM 1,123). This bundles a grille lining, and a pair of admittedly rather tacky-looking fake rear bumper vents.
Slapping a trunk spoiler bumps the cost up to THB 17,200 (~RM 2,172), part of the Exclusive Sport Package.
For a more complete look, there's the THB 18,500 (~RM 2,336) Modulo Aero Package, which adds on two-piece front and rear bumper garnishes, as well as a pair of side skirts.
That's not where it ends - Thai customers can always add on more niceties. Other add-ons include black 17-inch wheels for THB 21,000 (~RM 2,651), Civic-inscripted fender garnishes for THB 1,950 (~RM 246), as well as side mirror covers and door visors for THB 1,000 (~RM 126) and THB 1,800 (~RM 227), respectively.
Options from the interior are no less varied too.
There's things like illuminated side step garnishes, footwell lighting, sports pedals, different carpet choices, and a trunk tray.
No performance mods yet
Much like before, these updates are purely cosmetic. As it is, the Civic FE's 1.5-litre VTEC turbo mill makes 5 PS and 20 Nm more than its predecessor, for a total output of 178 PS and 240 Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the front wheels via a CVT.
When is the Civic reaching Malaysia?
The 11th-gen Civic's introduction in Thailand also marks its debut in this region, just four months after the model made its world debut.
Come this Thursday, 12-August 2021, Singapore will be the next country to launch the model.
As for us Malaysians, we'll have to wait a while longer for the all-new 2022 Honda Civic, as Covid-19-related restrictions have delayed plans for its launch here.
