PETALING JAYA: The new fifth-generation Honda City will be launched in Malaysia very soon, based on a post on Honda Malaysia's Facebook page.

The post shows a side view photo of the new City, and boldly announces, "Your Time Is Up. The game will no longer be the same. Watch this space."

To recap, the fifth-generation Honda City debuted in Bangkok in November 2019, with a new 1.0-litre DOHC, 12-valve, VTEC Turbo engine that delivers 122ps and torque of 173Nm.

The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).


While this new 1.0-litre turbocharged engine may arrive in Malaysia, it is likely the new City will continue to be offered with the present 1.5-litre powertrain.

The exterior is designed with sporty elegance in mind while the interior is said to be roomy and more premium.

The latest City has projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, LED tail lights, chrome front grille and new 15-inch alloy wheels.
