All-New 2020 Honda City Now Open for Booking – 4 Variants, i-MMD Hybrid
Honda Malaysia today announced that the All-New City is now open for booking at Honda’s 101 authorised dealerships nationwide.
The introduction of the All-New City RS intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) in Malaysia will also be the world premiere as no other market in the world gets the City with the i-MMD hybrid system.
For the first-time in Honda Malaysia, the All-New City RS will be powered by the new i-MMD powertrain. The i-MMD system, globally known as e:HEV, spearheads Honda’s Next Generation Hybrid Technology to realize outstanding environmental performance without compromising driving enjoyment.
According to Honda Malaysia, the i-MMD powertrain delivers best-in-class high torque of 253Nm for a powerful and smooth acceleration that performs better than a C-segment and equivalent to a D-segment or a 2.5L Naturally Aspirated engine torque.
The All-New City will also be offered with a new 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC powertrain which is the newest engine in its segment to provide an ideal balance of performance and fuel efficiency.
The All-New City RS’s avant-garde exterior design accentuates a sense of large vehicle size class. It features New LED Headlights (RS & V) with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) as well as New LED Taillights to signify an unrivalled exterior look. The New Black Door Mirror** creates a two-toned expression of the body colour, making the All-New City RS stand out above the rest. The 16” Aluminium Wheels (RS & V) in dual tone further compliments the sporty design of the car.
The outer diameter on a pair of spokes gives a sense of a rim-less appearance and makes the wheels look larger. Overall, the All-New City RS impresses on the exterior made possible by the cutting-edge design and sleek appearance.
The All-New City boasts a couple of B-segment firsts, setting a benchmark equivalent with C, D and SUV segments with features such as Honda LaneWatch (RS & V), a camera based advanced safety technology which assist to monitor blind spots, making it easier for the driver to change lane or make turns.
Replacing the traditional handbrake lever, the All-New City RS’s new first-in-segment Electric Parking Brake (EPB) provides convenience to the driver with just a lift of a button, while appearing trendy and technologically advanced.
With first in its segment pioneering advanced technology, unparalleled performance and exceptional design; the ambitious All-New City is unmatched in the B-segment and will continue to stand as Malaysia’s favourite among working adults, young executives as well as young families.
In conjunction with the recent announcement by the Government on the PENJANA sales tax exemption scheme which provides financial aid to new car buyers, Honda Malaysia is pleased to offer new car buyers with a RM1,000 Service Voucher under the ‘All-New City Special Early Booking Programme’ for customers who book the All-New City.
There has not been any price announcement yet, but what we know is that the car will be offered in 4 variants once it is launched.
