Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Honda Malaysia, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama commented, “Previously, the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) had also chosen the best-selling C-segment as their new mobile patrol vehicles and we are currently delivering more than 1,000 units of the Civic 1.8S to them to be used for their enforcement duties. Honda Malaysia is proud that the Civic has once again been selected as our frontliners’ vehicle of choice. The Civic will be used by the Royal Military Police Corps for enforcement duties and it is our hope that the ideal model selected will complement and assist the Royal Military Police Corps in their daily commute for their assigned tasks.”
The Civic is a hugely popular vehicle of choice among Malaysians.
