Highly-anticipated and wanted by many, a build that cocoons technology and radiates power, the all-new Honda Civic.

Designated FE, it is a 2023 11th-generation C-segment model, replacing the 2016 10th-generation Civic, codenamed FC.

Four variants for the locally-assembled (CKD) fastback. Petrol (E - MYR 131,900, V - MYR 144,900, RS - MYR 151,900) and hybrid (e:HEV RS - MYR 167,900) powertrains.

Prices (OTR, w/o insurance) include a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty, five-year/100,000 KM free (five times) labour service, and an eight-year, unlimited mileage hybrid battery warranty (e:HEV RS).

Exterior colours. Lunar Silver Metallic (E, V, RS), Platinum White Pearl, Meteoroid Grey Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Ignite Red Metallic.


Body Dimensions

Weighing in at 1,338 KG (E), 1,349 KG (V), 1,362 KG (RS) and 1,445 KG (e:HEV RS), the 2023 Civic stands at 4,678 MM long, 1,802 MM wide, 1,415 MM tall, and with a wheelbase spanning 2,735 MM.

Front View

Sportily striking, its exterior parades a long, low and wide stance, packaged in a four-door fastback body style.

An aggressive presence, the front-end sees a mildly-sculpted hood and an aerodynamically-sculpted bumper. 

Featured on the latter is an all-black (E, V, RS) and a chrome (e:HEV RS) grille, and an enormous lower centre intake.

Detailing the layout is the RS treatment (RS - black trims, e:HEV RS - black/chrome trims), and Honda (Blue H - e:HEV RS) and e:HEV (e:HEV RS) emblems.

Rear View

Slightly protruding, it furthers the commandingly sporty appeal, complementing the front with angularly-rounded lines.

Sharp and smooth, the rear-end gets a hatchback-style roofline, and a smoothly-sculpted bumper.

Equipped is a shark fin antenna (E, V - body colour, RS, e:HEV RS - black), boot-lid spoiler (RS, e:HEV RS), and chrome exhausts (twin - RS, single - e:HEV RS).

Detailing the layout is the RS treatment (RS - black trims, e:HEV RS - black/chrome trims), and Honda (Blue H - e:HEV RS) and e:HEV (e:HEV RS) emblems.


Framed aerodynamically sharp, the head lamps project a very focused and determined outlook.

Installed are LED units with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), and automatic On/Off and high beam functions. 

Paired to the standard (E, V), smoked-out (RS) and chromed-out (e:HEV RS) sets are LED fog lamps (V, RS, e:HEV RS).

Tail Lamps

Wrapped-around and angularly sleek, the trapezoidal tail lamps add abundance to the overall outlook. Installed are LED combination units.

Side Mirror

Body-coloured (E, V) and black-capped (RS, e:HEV RS), the side mirrors are electronically powered (adjust, fold) with turn signals, and blind-spot monitor indicators (Honda LaneWatch Camera (LWC) (V, RS, e:HEV RS)).


Fitted are ventilated (front) and solid (rear) brake discs. Aiding the drive is an Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) with Auto Brake Hold system.


Mounted is a set of 16-inch (E), 17-Inch (V) and 18-Inch (RS), five-twin-spoke black alloy rims, wrapped in 215/50 R17 (E, V) and 235/40 R18 (RS) tyres.

Variant e:HEV RS upgrades to a set of 18-Inch, 10-spoke two-tone (black-silver) alloy rims, wrapped in 235/40 R18 tyres.



New, dashboard of the 2023 Civic is horizontally- and cleanly-aligned, decked in black hard-touch panels with aluminium trims as a detailing finish.

Filling the layout is a centre-mounted touchscreen, and a full-width honeycomb-mesh panel, concealing the air-conditioning vents.

Linked underneath are alloy sport pedals (RS, e:HEV RS), and in the centre a fingerprint-resistant centre console.

Overall, every accessibility is well laid out, arranged non-cluttered with easy reachability, and exudes a high-quality of fit and finish.

Instrument Cluster

Installed is a 7.0-Inch with an analogue speedometer (E, V, RS) and a 10.2-Inch fully digital TFT instrument cluster.


Interior of the five-seater sees an upscale sporty treatment, featuring upholsteries in fabric (E), leather (V) and leather/suede with red stitching (RS, e:HEV RS).

Up front, variant E features manual adjustable seats, and variants V, RS and e:HEV RS get power (driver) and manual (passenger) adjustable seats. 

The rear, standard for all variants is a bench seat with a retractable centre armrest and a 60:40 split-fold configuration.

Completing the space is a front roof ambient lighting system (RS, e:HEV RS include front doors), and a black headliner (RS, e:HEV RS).


Cabin space is sufficient and borderline generous. It offers plenty of head, shoulder and leg rooms, thus front and rear occupants get ample mobility.
