All-new 10th generation Honda Civic– Breakthrough to create a new trend!
First introduced to the market in August 2006, Honda Civic has become a very familiar automobile for Vietnamese customers to date. Thanks to its strong performance, high fuel efficiency, eye-catching, sporty design and high durability, Honda Civic is considered to be one of the best choices for the customers in the middle class sedan segment. By July 2016, over 20,000 Civic units have been delivered to customers in Vietnam.
 
Aimed at defining a new benchmark for the C-segment sedans in Vietnam, HVN today officially launched the all-new 10th generation Honda Civic imported from Thailand. Since its world premiere, the all-new Civic has received impressive appreciation from customers around the world, and has already received several important awards from leading institutions such as “2016 North American Car of The Year”, since its launch in 2015. 
 
Highlights of the all-new Civic: the new generation Civic has been reinvented to be the sportiest CIVIC ever, creating a new benchmark for middle class sedans in terms of space, interior quality, advanced connections, safety features and especially the all-new downsized turbo engine which brings powerful performance as well as outstanding fuel efficiency.
The all-new 1.5 VTEC TURBO engine:
  • VTEC TURBO is the new turbocharged engine, which was first applied to Honda automobile models in Vietnam, helping the car to achieve two attributes: powerful performance and outstanding fuel efficiency. With the same amount of fuel, the VTEC TURBO engine produces more power than naturally-aspirated engine by reusing exhaust gas energy, which improves the engine's thermal efficiency.
  • The 1.5L VTEC TURBO engine delivers powerful acceleration equivalent to a naturally-aspirated 2.4L engine, but still achieves great fuel efficiency. Its fuel consumption rate is equivalent to naturally-aspirated 1.5L engine.
  • 0-100km/h time: 8.3s
  • Maximum output: 170Hp/5.500rpm
  • Fuel consumption in standard condition: 5.8L/100km (Tested & announced by the Honda Motor Co., approved by the Vietnam Register)
 
CVT EDT: The powertrain developed by Earth Dreams Technology includes the powerful 1.5L VTEC TURBO and high torque capacity CVT to achieve best-in-class acceleration and fuel efficiency.
 
Design: With its youthful, premium and sporty new style, this launches all-new Civic’s design into the next era. Modern cabin design with advanced technology and high quality materials naturally harmonize, creating enhanced levels of space, comfort and well-being, as well as providing the driver with a wider field of vision and a matching sense of security and safety for all passengers. The new Civic redefines the middle class sedan category.
Dimension: All-new generation (10th): 4.630 x 1.799 x 1.416 mm. vs. Previous generation (9th): 4.525 x 1.755 x 1.450 mm.The new generation of Civic has a bigger interior, offering both spaciousness and convenience making it the market leader in the segment.
All new chassis and suspension system: Building on the foundation of its ultra-rigid and lightweight body structure, the all-new Civic utilizes the most sophisticated chassis design in the history of Civic. Its fully independent suspension includes an all-new multi-link rear design that is rigidly mounted to the rear subframe delivering a high degree of lateral stability. Front and determinate rear hydraulic compliance bushings, a feature typically reserved for larger or more expense vehicles, are also utilized for the first time on Civic, improving ride compliance and reducing road vibrations without compromising sporty handling feel. The new Civic Sedan also applies bonded front and rear stabilizer bushings for smoother and more progressive anti-roll behavior.
 
Noise, vibration and harshness performance (NVH): The new Civic takes noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) countermeasures to the next level, positioning it at the top of its competitive set. All Civic trims feature strategically placed body sealants. Additional NVH enhancements on all models include acoustic separators inside the A-, B- and C-pillars, while a sound-insulating acoustic windshield further aids overall cabin quietness.
 
New outstanding features:
  • Smartphone connectivity: a high resolution and wide-view 7-inch touchscreen provides high quality images and easy-to-operate function mimicking a tablet’s design. The system supports connectivity with smartphones using iOS and Android via USB and Bluetooth connection. When synchronized with a smartphone, voice commands are allowed providing support for calls, text messaging, map/navigation, favorite song activation, etc. The system also allows WiFi connection, Web browsing and air-conditioner system adjustment using the touch screen.
  • Walk-away auto lock: feature automatically locks the car when the system determines that the remote is away from the car.
  • Electric Parking Brake (EPB-a world-first in the segment): EPB makes parking and/or stopping on sloping roads easier and more convenient than the traditional handbrake.  EPB is activated with only a simple press of the button (P).
  • Automatic Brake Hold (also a world-first in the segment): When activated, the system automatically retains brake pressure when the vehicle comes to a stop such as at a traffic light or in heavy traffic.  This frees the driver from continually pressing the brake pedal to ensure the vehicle remains stationary – delivering a significant improvement in driving enjoyment in difficult conditions. To activate or deactivate the system, simply press the button (BRAKE HOLD). Upon pressing the accelerator pedal, the system will automatically release the brakes and the car will move immediately.
  • Agile Handling Assist (AHA) actively controls braking force at each wheel corresponding to the acceleration and the steering force, which supports driver in cornering precisely and more confidently on twisty and/or tortuous roads.
  • 6 Airbags: All-new Civic also comes with 6 airbags including Dual SRS, i-Side Airbag and Side curtain airbags.
 
Other advanced features: Cruise control, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Multi-angle rearview camera (3 angles), Eco Assist, Push Start & Smart entry, Paddle Shift.
With all-new sporty, dynamic design combined with outstanding technologies, utilities and new features in the segment, the all-new Civic will bring back the popularity of the middle class segment.
