On the outside, you will notice that they replaced the single chrome frame where they have put back the 2 sided front grille which was fitted in the Lancer before the GT came about. They have also put in 16 inch alloy wheels in place of the GT’s 18 inches ones. Of course, being a non-sport version, its high spoiler have also been replaced with a more ‘gentlemanly’ version. If you have seen the inside of the GT, then you will find that they have almost completely changed the insides of this too. Well, if you have compared the Civic Type R and the Civic stock version, you will know what we are talking about.
Priced at RM117,676.10 OTR without insurance, it is not really a cheaper version considering that the GT is sold for just about RM3,000 more. You can choose either black or white colour body where MMM is giving buyers a 5 years or 100,000 kilometers warranty as well as a 2 year or 50,000 kilometers free package. The car is fitted with the 4B11 2.0 liter engine that gets you up to 153 horsepowers and 199Nm of torque.
You might or might not like the grey coloured leather seats though but it does give the EX a brighter persona instead of the darkened and more sporty version where they have also changed the shape of the front seats too where as mentioned is more concerned with the comfort of the passengers. It also comes with a double-din ICE touch screen navigation system which comes with a Mapking GPS system as well as iPod and auxiliary connectivity. Keyless entry and start/stop button is also standard together with a steering wheel mounted controlled Cruise Control system. Surely you won’t expect the paddle shifters to be included here where the 6 speed sports mode can be activated through the shift lever.
