Honda Civic and Honda BR-V Get New Platinum White Pearl Colour

Honda Malaysia has introduced a new Platinum White Pearl colour option for two of its popular models – the Civic and New BR-V, replacing the White Orchid Pearl colour.

The Platinum White Pearl colour was first introduced by Honda Malaysia in Honda’s model line-up, namely the Odyssey and the 10th Generation Accord.

According to Honda Malaysia, both the Civic and BR-V are dominating its respective segment with substantial contribution to the company’s overall sales.

When the company introduced the Platinum White Pearl colour in the Accord early this year, Honda saw good market acceptance with this colour accounting for 33% of the sales of the model.

Speaking of sales, Honda Malaysia’s second best-selling model – the 10th Generation Civic maintained its No.1 position in the C-segment with a market share of 79%.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Non-National MPV segment; the New BR-V, has sold more than 38,000 units since its introduction in 2017. The Civic in new Platinum White Pearl colour is now available in the market, while the New BR-V in this new colour is expected to be available in November 2020.

Surcharge of the Platinum White Pearl colour introduced in the Civic and the New BR-V is RM 272.73.


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.


2020 Honda City Launching Soon in Malaysia

The battle of the B-segment is about to get heated once again with the arrival of the 2020 Honda City.

While the Toyota Vios is having a good time raking in sales with the SST-exempted price, Honda Malaysia swiftly released a teaser of the 2020 Honda City which actually took us by surprise.

2020 Honda City Malaysia

Just launched in Thailand and India, it is safe to say that the 2020 Honda City will be launched within the next few months before December during the SST exemption period. Otherwise, why would they tease the arrival of the 2020 Honda City?

2020 Honda City Malaysia Rear

Anyways, while the 2020 Honda City comes with a new 1.0-litre three-cylinder VTEC Turbo engine making 122 PS and 173 Nm of torque in Thailand, it is powered by an updated version of the current 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine making 121 PS and 145 Nm in India.

Knowing our market, the 2020 Honda City, once launched, would probably get the same engine 1.5-litre as the one we have now, but don’t take our word for it as nothing is certain for now.

All we know is that this funky red colour you see here, will be available. So, watch this space for more updates on the 2020 Honda City.

Since the BR-V was first introduced in Malaysia in 2017, it has quickly become one of the most popular 7-Seaters in the market with more than 32,600 units sold.

The New BR-V received high demand from customers in the Central region, which translated to 42% of the total bookings. Of the two variants available, over 85% units of booking were for the V variant, while the E variant made up the balance of the total number of bookings.

More than 24% of the bookings were for Modern Steel Metallic, which makes it the favourite colour among the New BR-V owners.

In case you’re wondering what is new with the BR-V, the exterior has received several upgrades comprising a new front grille, new front bumper with lower bumper garnish, new front fog light garnish as well as a new 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheel design.

It also has a refreshed rear design with a new shark fin antenna and new rear bumper with lower bumper garnish. Interior-wise, there are new leather seats with Red Finishing in the V variant.

Power comes courtesy of a 1.5L SOHC i-VTEC engine coupled with Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) that produces 120PS of power. To top it off, the new BR-V is fitted with paddle shifters that offer smoother and more exhilarating driving experience.

The 7-Seater crossover also comes with the biggest trunk space at 223 litres when all seats are up and 539 litres when the third-row seats are folded down. Multiple configurations were also incorporated in the new BR-V, which are the 60:40 One Touch Tilt & Tumble in the second row and 50:50 Tilt & Full Tumble in the third row.

Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition Sets New Record at Suzuka

Honda’s most extreme Type R yet – the Civic Type R Limited Edition – has set a new lap record at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan for Front-Wheel Drive cars, with a time of 2 mins and 23.993 seconds.

In case you’re wondering what is different with the Civic Type R Limited Edition, it features lightweight components, suspension and steering upgrades, and a stripped-back, driver-focused interior, making it lighter which of course means quicker.

The record-breaking lap was achieved by a Type R Limited Edition development car as it underwent its final performance evaluation in February 2020.

The development car featured the same technical specifications as the production version, with no modifications or performance enhancements.

Just 100 of the Type R Limited Edition will be built for Europe, each benefiting from the standard Type R’s outstanding driving dynamics and performance.

The new Limited Edition features lightweight 20-inch forged BBS alloy wheels with high grip Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres. These are designed exclusively for outstanding circuit performance but still deliver exceptional on-road performance, whilst providing a 10kg weight saving.

Modified dampers optimise this new wheel and tyre combination and, together with recalibrated steering, offer maximum control and feedback.

The Adaptive Damper System’s control software now evaluates road conditions faster, resulting in improved damper reactions for both better handling response and ride quality.

The new Limited Edition model retains the Type R’s 2.0-litre VTEC Turbo engine. Peak power output is 320PS at 6,500 rpm and peak torque is 400 Nm from 2,500 rpm to 4,500 rpm. 0-100 km/h is achieved in 5.7 seconds.

The striking Type R Limited Edition will be available in an exclusive new colour, ‘Sunlight Yellow’, and will feature an exclusive dark chrome Civic badge on the rear hatch and a contrasting gloss black roof.

Gloss black wing mirrors and an intake vent on the bonnet complete its aggressive styling.

The interior of the flagship Civic Type R Limited Edition echoes Honda’s sporting bloodline with red bucket seats and a plaque marking the build number of the car.

The Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a newly designed teardrop style gear knob provides the driver with a greater sense of oneness with the Type R even on the highly technical Suzuka Circuit.

The track-focused nature of the car means the infotainment and air conditioning systems are omitted to save weight, but the rear seats remain to ensure that that the Limited Edition retains the everyday usability for which the Civic is renowned.

The new tyres and wheels, together with new lightweight components and a stripped-back interior all contribute to a 47kg weight reduction compared to the Type R GT variant.

Meanwhile, the suspension set-up and Adaptive Damper System have also been improved across all Type R models for more responsive, sharper handling and improved ride quality.


Honda Civic Retains No.1 Spot in C-Segment

Honda Malaysia has announced that the new Civic, which was officially launched in February this year, remains No.1 in the C-Segment with a captured market share of 70%.

To-date, the new Civic is currently the 3rd best-selling model in Honda Malaysia’s overall sales. While the Central region contributed 44% to the total sales, 17% came from the Southern region, followed by 15% from the Northern region.

The White Orchid Pearl colour appears to be the favourite among customers, representing 42% of the overall sales for the New Civic.

According to Honda Malaysia, the new Civic is receiving positive response from the market with a total of more than 6,500 bookings as of June 2020.

It is also worth mentioning here that the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) took delivery of 425 units of the Civic 1.8S last month to be used as patrol vehicles.

That being said, the delivery timeline for the new Civic is one month waiting period and stocks are available to meet customers demand.

The New Civic’s price list after the sales tax exemption is as mentioned below:
