Honda officially brings the All-New Civic Type R in the Philippines

July 10, 2017




Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda’s automobile unit in the Philippines, is proud to announce the availability of the much anticipated All-New Civic Type R. This is the first–ever Civic Type R model to be sold locally. All Honda Car Dealerships will start accepting reservations starting July 11, 2017.

2017 marks the 25th year since the introduction of the very first Honda Type R vehicle globally. For more than two decades, the Type R badge has denoted the highest performance version of its respective model, derived from philosophy of crafting racing-inspired road cars. Honda’s Type R models have always represented the purity of the original concept of minimizing weight while maximizing power, responsiveness, dynamic stability and braking performance, which aims to deliver the most rewarding driving experience, both on the road and on the race track. Newly engineered from the ground up to deliver the most rewarding driving experience in its segment, the fifth-generation Civic Type R represents the first truly ‘global’ Type R. Powerful 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo and Remarkable Engine Performance

Powering the All-New Civic Type R is a 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine with a maximum power output of 310 PS at 6,500rpm, and peak torque of 400 Nm from 2,500rpm to 4,500rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that is further enhanced by a rev match control system which enables the car to sustain maximum power during gearshifts. The rev-matching function can be switched on or off in the user settings for the car, regardless of which driving mode is selected.

All of the power is transmitted to its front wheels through an exceptionally responsive helical limited-slip differential (LSD) that gives the All-New Civic Type R’s strong cornering traction.

The All-New Civic Type R also features a bespoke chassis, suspension, and steering setup for a more responsive handling as well as improved high-speed stability. At the front, the All-New Civic Type R sports a lower-arm-type front MacPherson strut suspension that minimizes torque steer and maximizes handling. While at the rear, a multi-link suspension setup helps the All-New Civic Type R improve its stability when braking as well as reducing the vehicle’s body roll movement when cornering.

The All-New Civic Type R also features a revised four-wheel Adaptive Damper System that delivers superior ride quality and exceptional road performance. The system is incorporated with a three-chamber design upgraded shock absorber units that gives a wider range of variability on damping force in different driving conditions. And to help the driver manage the All-New Civic Type R’s prodigious power, the front brakes are equipped with ventilated and cross-drilled 350mm disc with 4-piston caliper Brembo brake package.

Furthermore, the All-New-Civic Type R’s Dual Pinion Variable-ratio Electric Power-Assisted (EPS) Rack and Pinion Steering carries an individually calibrated setting for each of the three selectable driving modes: +R, Sport, and Comfort. These driving modes give the All-New Civic Type R greater usability. Each driving mode sets the adaptive dampers, steering force, gear shift feel, and throttle response of the car differently to give the driver’s demand in a push of a button. The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system is retuned for +R mode to focus on acceleration and performance, allowing the driver to maximize the car before activation of the VSA.

Aerodynamic Exterior

The exterior of the All-New Civic Type R boasts a comprehensive aerodynamic package. The five-door– five-seater hatchback carries an aggressive front grille, a Type R wing type spoiler, and Vortex generators at the trailing edge of the roof line.The front and rear bumpers and side skirts also sport a carbon fiber effect and sporty red accent line, which runs around the entire vehicle. The muscular and aggressive body, combined with its aerodynamic package, gives the All-New Civic Type R best-in-class balance between lift and drag, contributing to better high speed stability. The sharp and aggressive front grille is an interpretation of Honda’s family ‘face’, incorporating the signature Honda front full LED headlights with auto leveling and auto on/off that complements each distinctive feature. The All-New Civic Type R is also equipped with a new lightweight aluminum hood with hood scoop to provide higher air intake to the turbo. And to keep the All-New Civic Type R’s massive airflow,three fully-functional tailpipes are positioned at the rear lower center of the car. Main tailpipes on either side deliver exhaust from the engine, while a unique, smaller center tailpipe controls the sonic tone of the engine. Similar to previous Civic Type R models, it is adorned with Honda’s famous red ‘H’ badge. Filling the enlarged wheel arches are 20-inch Berlina Black alloy wheels with 245/30 R20 tires.

With the combination of the 2.0 VTEC TURBO engine, 6-speed manual transmission with rev match control system, bespoke chassis, adaptive suspension, and an aerodynamic exterior, made the All-New Civic Type R set a new benchmark lap time for the front-wheel drive category at Nürburgring Nordschelife last April 3, 2017 with a record breaking time of 7minutes and 43.8seconds.

Sporty, Sleek, and Sophisticated Interior Space

The interior treatment of the All-New Civic Type R models remains unmistakable, as it can be traced 25 years back to the very first Honda with the iconic red badge. The All-New Civic Type R presents a sophisticated, premium ambiance of the standard vehicle cabin with striking suede-effect red and black fabric trim for its Type R spec bucket seats. The steering wheel boasts red leather inserts and hexagonal stitching, while the dashboard panel’s carbon center inlay is surrounded by red pinstripe trim extending into the side door panels.On top of those upgrades, an exclusive Type R serial number plate (unique to every vehicle) is placed near the gear shift lever and a Titanium Type R spec shift knob.

In front of the driver, an instrument display layout provides vivid clarity and highly intuitive user interface. A 7-inch full color Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Type R Spec Instrument Cluster with red illumination includes virtual gauges and switchable section that can display a variety of different function readouts including Driving mode display (+R, Sport, Comfort), LED gearshift indicator light, Turbo boost pressure gauge, Throttle/brake input display, G-Meter, and lap time recorder.

Furthermore, the center console of the All-New Civic Type R features a piano-black finish, following a ‘technology center’ theme. On top of the center console sits a seven-inch touchscreen with advanced display audio and navigation. Control functions for the dual zone automatic air conditioning system and reverse camera display with dynamic guidelines are also integrated on this panel. This panel also offers an enhanced intuitive operation and full smartphone integration with iPhone and iPod connectivity via USB or Bluetooth.



Uncompromised Safety

With the uncompromised power and latest technology of the All-New Civic Type R, driver and passenger’s safety remains a top priority as it is equipped with front and side airbags, side curtain airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA), and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD).

All four SUVs were driven on uphill and downhill runs through straight and winding roads to test their power, handling, and safety features.

    Every part of the road course truly allowed the participants to experience every vehicle`s dynamic driving performance, powerful engine, and effortless handling. The uphill and downhill drives demonstrated the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Hill Start Assist (HSA) capabilities of all four SUVs that prevented the vehicles from skidding sideways during cornering, and rolling back on inclines.

    The HR-V 1.8 EL CVT proved its drivability and handling at every turn, conquering every curve and slope of Tagaytay Highlands, while providing comfort and space for its occupants. Its 1.8-liter powertrain portrayed powerful driving performance, producing a maximum power output of 141 ps at 6500 rpm and 172 NM of torque at 4300 rpm. This engine is mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) developed under Honda`s Earth Dreams Technology for optimal fuel efficiency.

Honda`s SUV line-up provided utmost driver and passenger comfort in different road conditions as the participants traversed steep light mud trails and dirt hills with ease.

    The CR-V 2.4 SX AWD proved capable of delivering maximum power output of 185 ps at 7,000 rpm. The CR-V allowed the media participants to experience comfort and safety in different driving conditions, which were further demonstrated through its Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), VSA, and HSA.

    The All-New Pilot 3.5 EX-L AWD showcased confident driving performance with its 3.5-liter Direct Injection i-VTEC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) and 6-speed Automatic Transmission that delivers maximum power output of 284 ps. The All-New Pilot also features a new Intelligent Variable Torque Management (i-VTM4), an All Wheel Drive system with torque-vectoring function that provides torque across the rear axle to aid cornering. This helps deliver more dynamic handling that provides effortless, efficient, and dynamic all-weather performance. This function is paired with the New Intelligent Traction Management system that offers four different All Wheel Drive modes (normal, snow, mud, and sand).

    The highlight of the test drive was the recently launched All-New BR-V, Honda`s newest and the first-of-its kind 7-seater SUV in the country. The participants drove the All-New BR-V 1.5 V Navi CVT on extensive laps across Tagaytay Highlands. In terms of looks, the All-New BR-V 1.5 V Navi CVT held its own beside the rest of the Honda SUV lineup with its solid frame and masculine body. In terms of performance, the All-New BR-V equally impressed with its 1.5-liter engine mated with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It powerfully drove steep uphill climbs carrying a full load,and effectively engaged the twists and turns of Tagaytay Highlands. The All-New BR-V proves to be a capable 7-seater SUV designed for long-distance adventures and cargo-hauling trips with the family.

    The New CR-Z 1.5 IMA Hybrid Navi is now officially available

       - January 11, 2016

    January 11, 2016- Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda`s automobile business unit in the Philippines, kicks off 2016 with the availability of the New CR-Z 1.5 IMA Hybrid Navi in all dealerships nationwide. HCPI`s newest offering will retail at Php 1,440,000 for the 6-speed manual transmission variant and Php 1,530,000 for the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters variant.

    Honda`s "Compact Renaissance Zero" or CR-Z represents the brand`s commitment to take on the challenge to create a new compact sports car without being bound by traditional values. With the much anticipated announcement now here, experience Honda`s unique spirited driving pleasure in the New CR-Z 1.5 IMA Hybrid Navi.

    REDEFINE: HYBRID


    The New CR-Z is still equipped with Honda`s 1.5 liter i-VTEC engine as the main source of power combined with the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) Hybrid system that brings about additional power and responsive driving experience. The distinct and efficient combination of these sport and hybrid allows the New CR-Z to deliver maximum power of 136 ps @ 6600 rpm and maximum torque of 19.37 kg-m for the 6-speed MT and 135 ps @ 6600 rpm and maximum torque of 17.54 kg-m for the CVT.

    REDEFINE: THE DRIVE


    The seemingly opposing ideas of sport and hybrid are also demonstrated with the retainedThree-Mode Drive System and Plus Sport system. In the Three-Mode Drive System, the driver can choose whether the IMA system will be used for added performance, or for efficiency. This system allows drivers to freely shift from Sport (for added power), Econ (limits the amount of fuel used by the engine), to Normal (for balanced driving performance and fuel economy) modes for different driving style and / or driving situations.

    The Plus Sport system seen as S+ Button, is also still present in the New CR-Z. This Plus Sport system uses the charge from the battery to power the electric motor and give an additional boost in acceleration that enables more responsive acceleration.

    Honda enhanced the New CR-Z`s handling with the 10mm increase in the Rear Wheel Track which translates to the CR-Z`s improved stability especially when tackling corners. And to further enhance the drive experience Active Noise Control (ANC) and the Active Sound Control (ASC) technologies were put in for an enriched auditory sensation; by muffling unwanted sounds during Normal and Econ modes and supplementing the sound throttle sound in Sport Mode.

    REDEFINE: STYLING


    Majority of the changes in the latest iteration of the CR-Z can be found in its exterior and interior design. The new CR-Z sports a more aggressive, low-slung design matched with new 8-point polygon grille, blade-like diffuser, Projector-Type HID Headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and 17" alloy wheel design.

    The interior of the New CR-Z gets new touches as well. The sporty bucket type front seats are now fitted with a black and orange color combination with additional leather trimmings. The already advanced and "futuristic" cockpit has also been improved with the addition of a new 7-inch Touch Screen Display Audio with navigation, Push Start System and a new center console layout making room for the new Electric Parking Brake (EPB). The EPB replaces the traditional lever-type parking brake with a simple switch.


    Lastly, the New CR-Z 1.5 IMA Hybrid Navi is the first Honda vehicle locally available that has a 2-Tone exterior color option with black painted roof, door mirrors, and tailgate. The 2-Tone color option is available in three colors: Helios Yellow Pearl, Milano Red and Premium White Pearl and can be availed for just an additional P30,000 to the suggested retail price. For those who prefer monotone paint, new Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic color is readily available while Polished Metal Metallic option is available for special order.

    November 9, 2015 - Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda`s automobile business unit in the Philippines, announces the availability of the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition. The New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition is equipped with new features exclusive to the Philippine market.



    Over the years, the City nameplate has established itself as the best-selling vehicle in HCPI`s 13 product line-up. This continuously inspires the company to constantly innovate and develop its only manufactured vehicle to appeal to more customers.

    Recently, HCPI Research Planning & Development Team, together with a representative from Honda R&D Co., Ltd. Japan, researched on the dynamic lifestyles and vehicle usageof Filipino consumers in the present setting. Findings show that Filipinos tend to look for a child-friendly vehicle that also protects occupants from the heat and airborne allergens. This led to the development of the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition.

    Revolving around the product concept of "Passionate and Omotenashi (Japanese term for genuine hospitality)", the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition has added values to offer in the areas of style, health and wellness, safety, and convenience.

    Style-wise, the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition gets an exclusive, all-new Ruby Red Pearl color as a result from the recent study. The brightness of the Ruby Red Pearl paint exudes elegance while still complementing the sporty style of the fourth-generation City. The Special Edition variant is also available in Gold Brown Metallic, and Taffeta White exterior colors.

    Unique to the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition is the application of UV Cut Glass windows for the front doors. The high performance UV absorbent coated glass, fused with core technologies, minimizes the penetration of UV rays and Infrared lights by approximately 99%, which is ideal for the Philippine tropical environment.

    In the area of safety and convenience, the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition is equipped with a speed-sensing Auto Door Lock system that enables the vehicle to bolt automatically upon reaching a speed level of 15kph, and to intelligently unlock all doors when the shift lever is set to Park Mode (P).

    In addition, the key fob of the Special Edition consists of a Panic Button. Long pressing the Panic Button enables the vehicle to emit a loud alarm through the horns, and to flash its headlights and park lights to call for immediate attention.

    To further promote the health and wellness of passengers, each purchase of the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition comes with a free Sharp Plasmacluster with Ion Technology. Known for its air purifying technology, the plasmacluster reduces airborne allergens and microbes through increased number of positive and negative ions, helps remove unwanted odors, and moisturizes the skin when constantly used.

The new CVT allows seamless gear shifting, and provides quick throttle response for maximum fuel efficiency. It is also equipped with the Eco Assist system, which features the ECON mode that controls the engine, drive-by-wire, transmission, and air-conditioning performance. Fuel efficient driving is detected once the eco-coaching eco lamp is lit.

    And in line with Honda`s environmental vision of a sustainable environment, the New City 1.5 E CVT Special Edition joins the rest of HCPI`s all Euro-4 compliant line-up.

    Honda Launches Their Flagship Vehicle,the All-New Legend 3.5 Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

    20 October 2015-Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI), Honda`s automobile business unit in the Philippines debuts the All-New Legend 3.5 Sport Hybrid SH-AWD at the Solaire Grand Ballroom, Paranaque City. Honda`s new flagship model is available at Honda Cars Global City and Honda Cars Greenhills with suggested retail price of P4,380,000.

    Revolving around "Smart Exhilarating Luxury" grand concept, this vehicle showcases Honda`s highest level of craftsmanship as it imprints its mark in the local luxury segment. The All-New Legend is a fusion of three customer values - pride and prestige of ownership, advanced features and technology, and exhilarating driving experience.

    THE FLAGSHIP`S SUPERIOR DRIVE

    Honda`s entry to the luxury vehicle segment combines opulence with state of the art driving technology. Aptly named as the All-New Legend 3.5 Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, it adopts a high-output and fuel-efficient hybrid system that combines one engine with three electric motors. This combination enables the All-New Legend to deliver a total maximum output of 380ps at 6500 rpm and 47.1 kg-m at 4700 rpm of torque; which makes it the most powerful Honda car to date.

    Under the hood of the All-New Legend are Earth Dreams Technology V6 3.5 L direct injection i-VTEC with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) engine and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) with an integrated high-performance electric motor. At the rear a Twin Motor Unit (TMU) and an intelligent power unit equipped with high-power lithium-ion batteries are located. Each rear motor is independently controlled and can provide either drive or deceleration power to its wheel in any ratio. This technology is called the advanced torque vectoring system which provides highly stable handling performance in a wide range of driving situations. Lastly, placed at the center of the vehicle is a power drive unit that controls the three electric motors. These are the main components of the All-New Legend`s advanced hybrid system.

    Furthermore, the advanced hybrid system automatically combines front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive with Engine drive, Electric Vehicle Drive or Hybrid drive as a response to the driver`s inputs and driving conditions to ensure optimal performance and outstanding fuel economy. Overall this powertrain delivers power similar to a V8 engine and a 4-cylinder like fuel economy.

    AN ARRAY OF SAFETY SYSTEMS AND CONVENIENCE FUNCTIONS

    Another area where the All-New Legend shines is the amount of convenience and safety technology features put to it. Honda utilized an Advanced Driver-Assistive System called Honda SENSING in the All-New Legend. Using cutting-edge sensing technologies, Honda SENSING system aids the driver to prevent or effectively respond to dangerous driving situations.

    The Honda SENSING system is a concrete development towards the realization of a collision-free society as part of Honda`s global safety vision where everyone can use the road safely.

    This system receives information from two different devices. One is a millimeter-wave radar that can be found in the front grille and the other is a monocular camera mounted on the upper, inside part of the windshield.

    Through these sensing devices, several new convenience and safety functions were applied in the All-New Legend such as Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow (LSF), and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).

    The CMBS is a collision-preventive system. CMBS is designed to alert the driver when a potential collision is detected. Furthermore, this system also reduces the vehicle speed to help minimize collision severity when it is deemed unavoidable.

    The ACC with LSF helps maintain constant vehicle speed and a set following interval behind a detected vehicle. Adding to that, LSF function allows the All-New Legend to follow the detected vehicle until a complete stop.

    On the other hand, the LKAS provides steering input to help keep the vehicle in the middle of a detected lane. It also provides tactile and visual alerts if the driver is drifting out of its lane.

    The LKAS visual alerts and ACC with LSF vehicle speed information can also be projected to the driver through the Honda Head Up Display. The Honda Head Up Display is located on the lower portion of the windshield directly in front of the driver. This new feature can also display the tachometer, and SH-AWD system operation.

    Other vehicle safety systems that are standard in the All-New Legend are the Multi-view camera system with four wide angle cameras located on the front grille, right and left door mirrors and tailgate, Blind Spot Information (BSI), and Cross Traffic Monitor (CTM).

    Additional safety features found in the All-New Legend are driver and front passenger airbags, driver and front passenger side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver`s knee airbag, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Front (2) and Rear (4) Parking Sensors, Emergency Stop Signal and a Pop Up Hood for pedestrian safety.

    DESIGN AND OPTIONS

    With all the advanced technologies and systems in place, Honda`s signature "man-maximum, machine-minimum" packaging design philosophy is very evident. The cabin feels roomier than what the numerical values state which is supplemented with acoustic glass windshield and window.

    Likewise, the familiar Honda "Dual Personal Structure" interior concept was taken notches higher. It is fitted with premium, high quality, and soft touch materials throughout the cabin with tasteful application of luxurious wood and metal accents. Exquisite perforated black Milano leather seats come standard in the All-New Legend. Climate controlled 8-way power with 4-way lumbar seats are also standard for the driver and front passenger.

    The All-New Legend is also equipped with a new fully electronic push-button gear selector that eliminates the conventional shift-lever. This allows the driver to easily select a drive mode with a push of a button and is supplemented with an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) with Auto Brake Hold.

    Other standard interior comfort and convenience amenities are smart entry with push start button, power tilt and telescoping steering, power sunroof, expanded rear door sunshade, and dual screens-an 8-inch Navigation screen and a 7-inch touch screen. The latter provides easy access to key functions such as air-conditioning, navigation and audio.

    Furthermore, the All-New Legend has built-in ultra-premium Krell audio system which comes with 14 speakers and an amplifier that sets a new benchmark for high-fidelity sound in this luxury vehicle.

    On the outside, the All-New Legend`s high-quality Jewel-Eye LED headlights grab attention. Its 8 LED bulbs and 16 precisely focused lenses result to better visibility on the road in any condition. The LED lighting technology was extended to the front and rear fog lights, turn signal lights and tail lamps.

    Styling-wise, the All-New Legend presents itself with an "aero-fused" exterior motif. Its body features a low, wide and athletic stance. On the side, sharp upswept bodylines create a stylish yet dynamic appeal. An aggressive, cleverly designed and engineered 19-inch Noise-Reducing Alloy Wheels complete the commanding look.

    The All-New Legend is readily available in three colors: Crystal Black Pearl, White Orchid Pearl and Super Platinum Metallic with Black Milano Leather interior. Other exterior colors such as Gilded Pewter Metallic, Pomegranate Pearl and Graphite Luster Metallic are available upon order. Interior colors Seacoast Ivory Milano Leather and Brown Milano Leather are also available by order.

    MUGEN and Modulo accessories are also made available which can be purchased individually or as a package for added convenience and style. Available MUGEN accessories are Carbon Fiber Front Lower Spoiler, Carbon Fiber Ducktail Spoiler, Sports Luggage Mat, and 20-inch Aluminum Wheel. The Modulo accessories on the other hand, include Front Corner Under Spoiler, Ducktail Spoiler, Door Lower Garnish and Mudguard.

    With all these advanced technology, features and systems, Honda`s All-New Legend 3.5 Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is best appreciated in action. The All-New Legend can be viewed and test driven exclusively at Honda Cars Global City and Honda Cars Greenhills. Drop by these dealerships and experience Honda`s newest flagship model, All-New Legend.
