Petaling Jaya, 9 May 2013 – Honda Malaysia Sdn Bhd ("Honda Malaysia" or the "Company") today announced that the Civic Hybrid is now equipped with a Rear Reverse Camera and Hands-Free Telephone (HFT) System capability. With the new Rear Reverse Camera, safety and assistance in parking is enhanced by eliminating blind spots while reversing.
