2016 Civic apparently starts at PhP 1.1 million
The tenth-generation ASEAN-spec Honda Civic has recently made its official regional debut in Thailand last week. This could give us a hint that Honda Cars Philippines Incorporated (HCPI) will launch the 2016 Civic anytime soon. HCPI also announced that all authorized dealerships are now accepting reservations for the 2016 Civic.
Our friends from JDMUnderground found this image posted by Honda Cars Pangasinan of what appears to be a digital flyer which indicates the pricing of the upcoming sedan. Based on the image, the 1.5-liter RS Turbo variant will have a price tag of PhP 1,300,000 while the 1.8-liter E will be offered at PhP 1,100,000.
The 2016 Civic will be the second nameplate to be available with the ‘Road Sailing’ (RS) design after the Mobilio. This will give the Civic a unique and more aggressive exterior according to HCPI.
The 1.8-liter E variant delivers 141 PS and 174 Nm of torque while the 1.5-liter Turbo VTEC puts out 172 PS and 220 Nm.
The tenth-generation Civic first made its debut last September 2015 and Honda stated that the vehicle is 51mm wider, 25mm lower and a 30mm longer wheelbase than the outgoing generation.
