Civic RS has welcoming red ambient lighting on the front door Two LED lights are located in the centre console, as well as an ambient light in red that is located in the footrest.

You won’t be blinded by the sunroof switch or the buttons on the centre console as well as the driver’s chair controls.
We’ve complained about some design and quality issues in the previous Civic model. However, this time around, Honda has really worked long and delivered absolutely no complaints. The build and design of the new model is impressive.
We do have some issues to be unhappy about. One of these is the infotainment system that is a cheap feature for your car and runs an outdated operating system, Android 9.0 operating system. another is the absence of wireless phone charging function. Also Read: Honda Civic Price in Pakistan
The primary goal on this Expert Review is to report the experience driving this vehicle. Let’s begin.
Our expert tested the car around the city, along the roads and the track of a race. After driving for around 1500 kilometers, he was able to find the latest Honda Civic drive to be an ideal balance between the comfort and control.
The latest Civic features a comfortable suspension, excellent handling and road grip, and a smooth ride. The engine is equipped with all the power you’d expect from a most powerful C-segment sedan in Pakistan.
The latest Honda Civic gives you a mileage of 9-10 km/L in city traffic and approximately 14km/L for highway. That is quite impressive.
Honda Civic RS has two airbags, ABS, EBD, Vehicle Stability Control and Hill Assist Control and Traction Control as well as Honda Sensing safety suite with Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lead Car Departure Notification System, Road Departure Mitigation System with adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist Traffic Sign Recognition and an Auto High beam. All of these features allow you to drive more easily and secure.

Lead Notification of Car Departure System informs you that the vehicle in the front of you has moved through standing-still zone.
Lane Keep Assist alerts you via fast vibrations on your steering wheel whenever you switch lanes with no indicator.
Collision Mitigation Braking System detects a potential collision ahead with another object or vehicle and warns the driver to brake.
The Traffic Sign Recognition feature detects road signs that read the speed limit as well as other information from the signs and displays the information on the instrument cluster’s screen.
Auto High Beam function recognizes light sources in front of your vehicle and then adjusts the brightness of your headlights for your vehicle.
With all these safety features in mind, keeping all of these features in mind, the new Civic isn’t the most secure car in Pakistan. International models have an excellent five-star safety score However, we’re not convinced that the local version can live at the same level of security since it has only two airbags.
