The All New Honda Civic
What do you look for when buying a car?

For me, here are some of the important criteria that I would emphasise on:
  • Safety features 
  • Space
  • Fuel-efficiency
  • Interior 
  • Sound system
Of late, I realised that almost 75% of the friends in my circle had bought Honda cars. I started to wonder the reasons why.

After a one night trip organised by Honda Malaysia of test-driving the all new Honda Civic, I understand why they chose to buy a Honda. Based on my experience test-driving the all new Honda Civic, my checklist before buying a car was all ticked and more!

The 10th generation of Civic promises to be the car of 'D-segment value' at 'C-sement pricing' and boy, was that a very true statement!

On our very first day of test-driving the all new Honda Civic, we drove the Honda Civic of our choice to the Honda Service Centre in Selayang. Normally, driving to Selayang from Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is no easy task - being the KL Sentral and the road stretch in front of Pasar Borong Selayang is always congested. Sudden braking was constantly needed and at times, I have to brake suddenly. But this time around, the experience was somehow different.

At the centre, I learnt that sending your car service could be fun and satisfying as the service rendered to the Honda owners are always of the utmost priority to Honda, befitting its objective to provide Joy to its customers. And the best fact about car servicing at Honda service centre is that the most expensive cost for service maintenance will cost you much less than the regular car maintenance at the ordinary service centre. Honda Malaysia is able to offer the best car service deal as the original spare parts are order in bulk and given discounts! That makes me wanna service my car at the Honda service centre too!

Servicing Honda Civic
From Selayang, we drove the all new Honda Civic to The Closer Kitchen and Expresso Bar for lunch, all the way in Mutiara Damasara. The ride was super smooth along the highway that at times I have to remind myself that the speed limit is 110 km/h. The turbo engine glides ever so smoothly and without any sound that at times, you will tend to forget about your surrounding and immerse yourself in the joy of driving the all new Honda Civic. Honda Malaysia is the first Japanese mass market manufacturer to introduce a turbo engine in the C-segment. And if you are a friend of the environment, the all-new Honda Civic is 'Energy Efficient Vehicle' certified and is in line with the Government's direction to offer EEV vehicles to the public. Less carbon print for the world everyone! 

Once done with such a yummy lunch treat, we drove to Setia City Convention Centre where all the safety features put to the test such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Stop Signal (ESS). In order to feel the difference of the absence of VSA during a car skidding incident, we even rode in the Honda Civic driven by a professional where he re-enacted a skidding incident! I screamed  at the top of my lung when the car skidded and I was thankful that the car was driven by the professional. Believe me guys, you want your car to have the VSA!

We were also shown other convenient features of the all-new Civic such as
  • Remote Engine Start (enable you to start your car and the air-condition  when you are 10 m away from the car - this will help to cool down the interior of the car so that you could enter the car in comfort)
  • Walk Away Auto Lock
  • Electric Parking Brake
  • Auto Brake Hold (this certainly helps whenever you are stuck in a jam - KL drivers, you are in a dire need for this feature)

Dive @ Aloft KLS
After the session, we checked in into our haven for the night, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral (which was really comfortable and relaxing - I will share about the experience in another post).

The next morning, we drove all the way to Genting Sempah. The hilly and many sharp curves along the Karak Highway was not even a challenge to the all-new Honda Civic. Accelaration on a hilly highway is not a problem and VSA really helps to smoothen the ride.

Sweet ride
Driving from Kuala Lumpur Sentral to Genting Sempah and then heading down to The Garage KL in Taman Sri Ukay was such a smooth and relaxing ride, even though the MRR2 was a bit congested. The sound system in the car was superb! The three of us (Mahamahu, Khai and I) sang songs from Khai's ipod which could be connected seamlessly to the 'Advanced Interface' via its 7" Advanced Display Audio. And if you are the proud owner of any Apple products, you will be able to do almost anything via Apple CarPlay

Flyboard - I am Ironman
From The Garage KL, we drove to Putrajaya Marina Complex where we flyboarded! What is Flyboarding? Head on to Flyboard Malaysia and you will see for yourself. It was one of the unforgetable experience - able to float on air makes you feel like you are on the top of the world. That is another one of activities in my bucket list that I have checked! Thanks so much Honda Malaysia.

What have I learnt from the whole trip?
  1. All New Honda Civic is a car that really cares for the safety of its rider - it has 6 airbags!
  2. All New Honda Civic is a smart car as it has a smart monitoring system - the indication lamp will alert the owner the timing of the oil change and their service status (this will really help the ladies - and some men too)
  3. Customers enjoy 5 years warranty with unlimited mileage with a service interval of 10,000 km
  4. It is really spacious - far more spacious when compared to two other cars of the same segment from other brands
  5. The LED lights of the all-new Honda Civic are cheaper and easier to maintain - more savings to the owner. It is even brighter and shine farther than the usual halogen lights
  6. I love the design of the brake lights - so Transformers like!
  7. The interior is fitted with light-weight sound proofing system - no wonder I feel like I was flying in a airplane!
