2017 Honda Civic 1.5L RS Turbo: A Superstar Reborn


2017 Honda Civic 1.5L RS Turbo - Damortis, La Union
 By Monch "Road Monchster" Henares


At First Glance

I remember test-dating the Honda Civic 1.8 E a short time ago.  Today, with the 2017 Honda Civic 1.5L RS Turbo before me, it felt like I was meeting my gorgeous, sexy date all over again... but this time she had some upgrading done to her already voluptuous body. A Wing Spoiler topped her ever so bootilicious rear, and a glossy jet black grill that complimented her sleek and squinty LED Headlamps (with Daytime Running Lights). This more provocative and aggressive sister stood symmetrically low with perfect aerodynamic proportions, too.  I just knew this romance was about to rekindle, but this time with the more sophisticated twin.
