Honda Cars Philippines Reveals All-New Civic Engines, Variants
Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. has just announced that its authorized dealers across the country are now accepting reservations for the all-new 2016 Civic which will launch very soon. After being shown as a teaser on its Facebook page, HCPI is now revealing more details about their compact car challenger including the powertrain that it will be using.
The tenth-generation model, the 2016 Civic brings Honda back into compact contention with its combination of a premium sporty style and powerful driving performance. The all-new model boasts of a highly aerodynamic design characterized by its low and wide stance, shortened overhangs, and aggressive new front fascia. It’s amplified further with the signature LED headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights.
Under the hood, the Civic is powered by either a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine or a first for the Civic range, a 1.5-liter turbocharged motor. The new Earth Dreams turbocharged engine boasts of a maximum output of 172 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque for high cruising efficiency and robust performance. Also new to the Civic is the adoption of Honda’s Earth Dreams CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).
Harking back to the Civic’s sporty heritage, HCPI announces that the Civic is the second model after the Mobilio to be integrated with the RS or Road Sailing design package. This will undoubtedly add even character and aggressiveness to the Civic’s design.
Already winning the 2016 North American Car of the Year and even the 2016 Canadian Car of the Year, the all-new Civic will be available initially in two variants: the 1.8 E and RS Turbo. It will also have six (6) shades available: Cosmic Blue Metallic, Midnight Burgundy Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, White Orchid Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, and Rallye Red.
