Now on its 11th generation, the Honda Civic is arguably the benchmark for a rather shrinking compact passenger car (PC) segment. This is because the general market is shifting more towards utility vehicles and subcompact passenger cars eligible for ride-sharing or public utility vehicle transport.
Nevertheless, Honda’s compact still continues to do its Civic duty as a vehicle for the boy racer crowds, for the technologically advanced gearhead, and the Honda diehards.
The Honda Civic was first introduced in 1972 and the first generation lasted until 1979. Currently, the Honda Civic has reached its 10th generation. And the latest generation was released in 2016 with a turbo engine and Earth Dreams Technology and a sport version variant, the Honda Civic Type R.
The latest generation
Finally, we have a new Honda sedan on the local market. Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. has officially launched the 11th-generation Honda Civic, with the company’s Honda Sensing system being one of the car’s most unique and attractive features.
The 11th-generation Honda Civic was launched in the Philippines on November 23, 2021. It was made available with three variants all of which carry the 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine that was once only seen in the top RS Turbo trim. The new version of the sedan aims to solidify itself as one of the popular entries in the compact sedan segment by bringing with it a host of new features.
Honda Philippines has also given the new Civic Honda SENSING technology as standard further increasing the number of safety features the vehicle has. The 11th-gen Honda Civic is now available at all 37 Honda dealerships nationwide. It won’t be offered with a manual transmission in the country. There are three variants and five color options to choose from: Morning Mist Blue Metallic, Meteoroid Grey Metallic, Ignite Red Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, and Lunar Silver Metallic.
