Honda Malaysia has delivered 40 units of the Civic 1.8S sedan to the Malaysian Army for the purpose of law enforcement and policing duties by the Royal Military Police Corps.
Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Honda Malaysia, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama commented, “Previously, the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) had also chosen the best-selling C-segment as their new mobile patrol vehicles and we are currently delivering more than 1,000 units of the Civic 1.8S to them to be used for their enforcement duties. Honda Malaysia is proud that the Civic has once again been selected as our frontliners’ vehicle of choice,”
The Civic that was presented to the Malaysian Army is powered by a 1.8L i-VTEC engine which delivers a maximum power output of 141PS and maximum torque of 174Nm. Besides having a zesty engine which is also fuel-efficient (certified EEV vehicle), the Civic also offers sharp handling and a roomy interior.
Since the launch of the facelifted Honda Civic in February 2020, the locally assembled Civic has sold more than 5,600 units (as of Aug 2020) and maintained its position as No.1 in the C-segment sedan with a 78% market share as of July 2020. The Civic is currently the second best-selling Honda model in Malaysia after the Honda City.
