Since the previous fuel price hike, people in Malaysia had tried a lot of things to make their car as fuel efficient as possible.But for those who got the money, you dont need to bother on the installation of NGV or any fuel saving devices. Just head straight to your local Honda dealer and book a Honda Civic Hybrid now.
The Honda Civic Hybrid runs on two power source whih is the petrol engine and the electric motor.How does it works? The engine is simillar to a normal engine but the magic is inside the gearbox where there is an elcetric motor installed between the engine and the transmission.The motor will supply additional power to the engine in an acceleration, the power supplied by the motor is varied by the acceleration of the car.But at low speed cruise,the car will run on the motor alone. And during deceleration,the battery will be charged.
Other than the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) the Civic Hybrid features a 3 stage i-vtec system which will give plenty of power throughout the rpm range.The combination of IMA and 3 stage i-Vtecwill gives the car higher engine output , better fuel efficiency and lower emmisions without compromising the power.
The 1.3liter 3-stage i-Vtec IMA engine produce 115PS(85Kw) of power and 167Nm of torque.The engine is mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission ( CVT ) to ensure a smooth driving experience and ultimate fuel efficiency
The exterior of the car is much like an ordinary Civic.Except for few differebt accesoriess mainly the different design of the alloy wheels.Interiorwise, it features a sporty cockpit which features an easy-to read 2-tier Multiplex Meter which should let the driver to scan all the parameter without getting distracted.A three spoke steering wheel is equipped to add the sportiness of the car.And for in car entertainment an integrated 6-disc cd changer with auxiliary jacks for mp3 player is installed
For the sake of safety, the car is installed with Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) airbags and front side airbags to prevent head and torso injury. The frontal side airbags also feature an Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) that determines the height and position of occupants and adjusts the airbags accordingly. And Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and the Electric Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) is also installed to reduce the risk of accident.
