Both of them offered outstanding sporty outlook especially with body kit (not included). Love them so much! While Civic may more fierce with his multi-spoke 17' rims, Altis do have 16' rims as well. Both of them come with HID light on their headlamps as well, which looks much cooler and brighter during the night ride =)

Both Civic & Altis offered impressive dark feel interior & latest technology accessories for their driver and passenger. Civic may have more sportier looks while Altis is more classic looks. In fact, Civic with "Push Start Button" feature which proved that Civic on the sport path. In my personal opinion, I love Civic's interior much more especially on the blueish panel meter & the i-MDI, but indeed Altis offer pleasant looking interior as well.

From the sheets, we can see that Civic is slightly more powerful than Altis. But Altis do have an new Dual VVT-i & awesome Super CVT-i gearbox. Both of them able to deliver an powerful acceleration with just a light foot on the pedal accelerator. Altis deliver a little bit better acceleration compared to Civic at beginning, thanks to Dual VVT-i that offered high torque at low rpm but Civic able to pick up at the higher rpm due to i-VTEC act as 'turbo' by activating the other cams when at high rev engine. Both of these engines offered great performance & fuel consumption rate.
Theoretical, Altis shall able to deliver better fuel consumption. Data to be share out once available.

  1. I really love to learn more about these modern cars. You really don't know what to expect when it comes to these car companies.

    1. Hi Nitrogen,
      Thanks for dropping a comment here. Yup, I do agree with you. These 2 companies are awesome. In fact, I owned one of the car from these companies. I totally satisfied with the performance & quality that delivered by them.

  2. I can just imagine driving one of those cars. Those features will surely aid me while I’m on the road. Cars today really do exceed our expectations when it comes to technology. I never thought that an auto drive feature would be available in cars, but some models today have that luxury. However, the tradeoff for this entire digital prowess is that you have to regularly check for defects and handle every part with care to maintain efficiency.

  4. The Civic will be smaller than this Altis but drives such as a mid size car due to the Suspension and Steering. The Altis senses tinny and cheap when compared to the Civic. I would choose the Civic. Both should be reliable though.
