All-New Honda Civic Driving Experience & Road Trip 2016

Well for this All-New Civic Blogger Drive 2016 road trip I teamed up with Miere Nadirah and Aliza Sara. So its girl’s road trip for us, yay! After the briefing we drove the Honda Civic 1.5L VTEC Turbo in Lunar Silver Metallic to Carey Island. Here we go!

1. Comfort
So it’s my turn to drive the 10th Generation All-New Honda Civic. Basically this is a very simple car to operate and it provides the comfort be it driving in the city or long distance. There are 6 simple steps before we start our drive such as adjust the Height, Distance, Backrest, Steering, Headrest and Seat belt to our comfortable level for safety and more efficient drive.

The All-New Honda Civic is equipped with Electronic 8-Way Driver Power Seat makes is easy to adjustable the car seat for drivers, especially when we have to switch driver at each stop.

As a driver and front passenger I like the spacious leg room and cabin space plus the dual zone air conditioning system that allows me to adjust the temperature to my own comfort level without interfering with the temperature setting of the one sitting on my side. When I was sitting at the rear seat, I noticed that it is very spacious plus the there is also an adjustable rear air conditioning ventilation. This spaciousness is definitely an added value for those with family and chidren.




2. Safety 
Our first stop was at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) car park where we tested the All-New Honda Civic safety features such as the VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) and experienced the Gymkhana stunts. After a few rounds of the VSA tests and Gymkhana stunts, I gave 2 thumbs up to the car road holding, control and stability. Check out my instagram video above to view the VSA Test and Gymkhana Stunts.

Although the driver make a sudden turn while he is speeding, but the car did not flung, overturn or skid. The All-New Civic maintain its calm and stability. When purchasing any cars, safety is always our priority. The VSA is one of the key safety features that can save life during accident or emergency brake, it prevent the car from losing control or skid.

Besides VSA, the all new Honda Civic is also equipped with top class safety features such as 6 airbags (dual front airbags, side curtain airbags, and side airbags), anti-locking breaking systems, electronic break distribution, break assist, hill start assist, emergency stop signal and ISOFIX

Go-Kart Race at Sepang International Kart Circuit

After the VSA test and Gymkhana experienced, we drove to Mitsui Outlet Park at KLIA Sepang for our lunch at ParaThai and has a bit of time for shopping. Then we continued our journey to Sepang International Kart Circuit where we had fun at the Go-Kart race. After few rounds we were able to grasp the curves and turns so it makes the race more thrilled. 

Our 1 Night Stay at Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort

Our 1 Night Stay at Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort
After the Go-Kart race, we continue our journey to Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort. It was a 45-minute drive and I enjoyed the accelerating pick-up and plus the stability on the road. Here is my crib for a night, we have the whole room yay... I love the lush green, scenery and serenity of this resort.

3. Front & Rear Lights  
After dinner we had a quick check on the All-New Civic LED headlights and rear lights verses the Old Civic lights. The All-New Civic LED headlights are brighter, and not as glaring as the Old Civic. The Day time running lights are elegant like flipping eyelash. Ah! the rear lights are too sexy and sporty, it’s totally different from the Old Honda. Many commented the love the sexy and sporty rear of the All-New Honda Civic. 

Comparison Competitor Car:

4. Designs
The next morning after breakfast, we started with the Comparison Competitor Car Walkabout. After comparing and checking the specs and space of the All-New Honda Civic verses the other 2 competitor cars, we find that the 10th Generation All-New Honda Civic is better in D-Segment with its level of spaciousness, comfort, sleek design and technology. 

The car front metal skirting enhanced the sport look plus it combined sleek and aerodynamic exterior design that provides a longer wheelbase and wider body. The car comes with high quality and soft padding finishing to keep up with its cool personality and premium character of the All-New Honda Civic.

 Remote Engine Start and Walk Away Auto Lock with Remote; 7” Advanced Display Audio with Advanced Interface; Apply CarPlay Connectivity; and 6 Airbags (including 2 new Side Airbags at Driver and Front Passenger Seat)

5. Technology
After checking the car exterior, we also played and tested the 7” Advanced Display Audio with Advanced Interface. It’s built in with smartphone connectivity, for iOS users just connect your smartphone to the car via USB cable. Now you can start using the Apple CarPlay App to play our personalized music list, check google maps, voice command and etc. 

Besides that, the All-New Civic also includes features such as Remote Engine Start, Walk Away Auto Lock, Electric Parking Brake and Auto Brake Hold. These 4 features are the 1st in the D-Segment.

ATV Ride at Amverton Cove

6. Performance
On the way back from Amverton Cove we accelerated up to 150km/h. The pick-up is effortless and smooth. Although the car is at this speed, we still feel the stability and the car is in control. At the same time we enjoyed the comfort of “Cruise Control” mode while driving. Although the car is moving so fast there is not much engine noise because the All-New Civic interior package is fitted with light-weight sound proofing system to reduce the noise, vibration and harshness.




Malaysia Autoshow 2016 at MIECC

7. After Sales Service
After Sales Service is also one of the considerations that we take into account when buying a new car. The All-New Civic 1.5L VTEC Turbocharged variant is equipped with a smart monitoring system, this giving us a peace of mind in maintaining the efficiency of the engine performance. There is feature that will indicate the timing of oil change and notify the drivers with an indication lamp on the speedometer. Enjoy 5 years warranty with unlimited mileage with a service interval of 10,000km at any 88 Honda dealers nationwide. 

8. Budget
The 10th Generation All-New Honda Civic is offering D-Segment (premium compact car) Value at C-Segment pricing. I am driving the 1.5L VTEC Turbocharged engine which has the horsepower equivalent to 2.4L car but you only pay RM90 for road tax per year compared to 2.4L car road tax is RM780. There are quite a bit of savings every year.

RM113,800 for 1.8S (On-the-road with insurance)
RM127,800 for 1.5 Turbocharged (On-the-road with insurance)
