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.
Honda says the Civic is aimed towards 30ish young professionals and family men who are looking for a compact sedan that expresses their success so far, and a car they would be proud to call their own. The latest Civic definitely looks the part of a car that’s both aggressively styled and fun on the road. Is it practical and frugal at the gas pump, though? Fortunately, prospective buyers don’t have to wait to answer that.
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. You have 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.
In the Philippines, the new Civic is priced as follows:
- S Turbo CVT: P1,290,000 (around $25,512)
- V Turbo CVT: P1,498,000 ($29,626)
- RS Turbo CVT: P1,690,000 ($33,423)
Those who purchase the V Turbo CVT variant of the Civic until December 31, 2021, will be entitled to a free Modulo Trunk Tray and Modulo Exhaust Pipe Finisher, on top of all the promotions offered for the month of the vehicle release until January 31, 2022.

All 11th-gen models sport a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder DOHC VTEC Turbo engine, which produces 178 ps and 240 Nm of torque, versus the last-gen Civic’s 173 ps and 220 Nm with its 1.5 VTEC Turbo engine. They’re also paired with a CVT or continuously variable transmission for every trim level.
In terms of in-car entertainment, all variants of the latest Civic come with a 7- or 9-inch touch infotainment screen. Both displays are compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, though the larger screen supports wireless Apple CarPlay as well. The S Turbo variant includes four speakers in the cabin, while the V Turbo has eight speakers. The RS variant, on the other hand, upgrades to a 12-speaker Bose sound system.
And as Honda will tell you, the new Honda Sensing driver-assist system is one of the 11th-gen Civic’s biggest highlights. It includes a single monocular camera with a wide field of view and boasts improved object recognition that identifies vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, and road markings in the frame. As with other Honda cars, the Civic is also equipped with G-Con — short for G-Force Control — for enhanced collision safety and top-class crash-safety design.
