KUALA LUMPUR: Bookings for the new 2017 Honda City are now being accepted at all 88 Honda authorised dealers nationwide from Feb 1 onwards.
The new City comes with new dual tone alloy wheels, and will be launched in the first quarter of 2017.
It is powered by Honda’s signature 1.5L i-VTEC engine mated with Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) for all variants.
The V variant gets LED headlights with LED daytime running lights (DRL) and front LED fog lights.
At the rear, the V variant is equipped with a duck tail spoiler integrated with LED brake light, LED taillights and a multi-angle reverse camera.
The premium V variant also has six airbags.
Trunk space remains the biggest in its class at 536L.
All variants of the New City have push start button and smart entry.
Safety features such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) systems are standard in all variants.
VSA stabilizes the New City by reducing under/over steering when driving in unexpected situations or during tight cornering,
HSA helps to prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards when the brakes are released on an incline, while ESS makes the rear brake lights and hazard lights flash automatically to warn nearby cars when the vehicle detects sudden braking.
