New City, same success

Honda Malaysia is set to tighten its stranglehold on the B-segment with the facelifted City and you can order one now

The Honda juggernaut isn’t slowing down any time soon because Malaysians simply can’t get enough of them. If selling out five month’s worth of BR-Vs in three weeks wasn’t enough; that’s 4,000 units, Honda Malaysia is now prepared to take more of your money with the facelifted City as it’s now open for bookings nationwide.

Having set the benchmark in the B-segment, the facelift is set to further raise that bar and build on the over 100,000 units of the pre-facelift sold since 2014.

Most of the improvements centre around additional equipment with the engine and transmission unchanged. A 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine mated with a continuous variable transmission (CVT) is the only combo of choice and experience has painted it as fuel efficient and punchy.

Cosmetic wise, the City gets new dual tone alloy wheels, while the V variant now gets stylish LED Headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and Front LED Fog Lights. Step to the back and a new duck tail spoiler with an integrated LED Brake Light, LED Taillights and a Multi-Angle Reverse Camera will catch your attention.

For added convenience, a push-start button and Smart-Entry are now standard as well, just like the extensive safety kit such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and Emergency Stop Signal (ESS). The premium V variant also comes with six airbags.

Customers that place their orders now will be one of the first to receive the refreshed City following its launch scheduled for the first quarter of the year. For more information, you can call the Honda Toll Free number at 1-800-88-2020 or log on to www.honda.com.my
