I bought my current Civic last year July, even during that time there were talks of the facelift coming out soon but I went with it anyway and I'm glad I did, otherwise I would still be waiting for the facelift more than one year later...
Like you mentioned it'll be more expensive but it'll come with some extra safety features, so how important are those features to you? If they're important and you can wait then by all means wait for it, I got mine because I needed a car at that time.
Based on past launches, Malaysia's car launch is typically 2-3 months after Thai's.
Since Thai launched their Civic Facelift Nov 2018, it should have arrived our shores by around Feb - March this year.
But there were reports coming from gov bodies on the delay on vehicle pricing approval and hence we won't even know when will the Civic FL get launched here.
Good you bought yours or else it'll be a never ending wait.
