Majlis Bandaraya Subang Jaya (MBSJ) has received a new Honda Civic FE, which will perform official patrol car (kereta rasmi peronda) and enforcement traffic escort (pengiring trafik penguatkuasa) duties in the city council’s area. The car was delivered by Syarikat Shared Auto Cars, a Honda dealership in Seksyen 15, Shah Alam.
The Civic pictured is a V spec, a RM143,700 mid variant between the base E and the fancy RS. It is powered by a 1.5-litre VTEC Turbo engine with 182 PS and 240 Nm of torque from 1,700 to 4,500 rpm. At 8.4 seconds, the V’s 0-100 km/h time is actually a tenth faster than the RS – besides being slightly lighter (13 kg), it also rolls on 16-inch wheels versus 17s on the RS. Top speed is 200 km/h.
The white Civic’s livery has blue as the main colour. Blue is found on the bonnet, which has MBSJ’s crest and the words ‘Warden Trafik’. The sides of the sedan have a combo of blue, green and red, with “Penguatkuasa MBSJ’ and the city council’s crest. Blue flash lights on the roof too, of course.
It was not mentioned how many units of the Civic were delivered to MBSJ or the total order. PDRM also uses the C-segment sedan, but the cops ride in the previous-generation FC with a 141 PS/174 Nm 1.8L NA engine. What do you think of the Civic’s looks in law enforcement livery?
