By RIZAL JOHAN | 14 August 2020

PETALING JAYA: Honda Malaysia has announced that the all-new City is now open for booking at Honda’s 101 authorised dealerships nationwide.

The 5th generation City is available in four new variants and features cutting-edge design, superior acceleration and class-leading advanced features.

For the first-time in Malaysia, the all-new City RS will be powered by the new i-MMD powertrain and will make its world premiere sometime in Q4 of 2020.


The new powertrain provides high efficiency electrification for a direct and smooth response and was previously only available in Honda’s line-up of large class models.

The i-MMD powertrain delivers a best-in-class 253Nm of torque which Honda says performs better than a C-segment and equivalent to a D-segment or a 2.5L naturally aspirated engine.

The new City will also be offered with a new 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC powertrain which is the newest engine in its segment.


It features new LED Headlights (for RS and V variants) with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) as well as new LED taillights.

The new Black Door Mirror (for RS variant) creates a two-tone expression of the body colour

It comes with 16” aluminium wheels for the RS and V variants while the dual tone (for RS variant) further compliments the sporty design of the car.

The all-new City boasts a couple of B-segment firsts such as Honda LaneWatch (RS and V), a camera based advanced safety technology which assist to monitor blind spots.

The City RS also has the first-in-segment Electric Parking Brake (EPB).


Honda Malaysia is pleased to offer new car buyers a RM1,000 Service Voucher (one-year validity, terms and conditions apply) under the ‘All-New City Special Early Booking Programme’ (starting from Aug 14, 2020 until the official launch of the new City).

Customers are invited to join the upcoming nationwide tour starting Aug 24, 2020 to view the new City RS i-MMD world premiere.

"The launch of the all-new City RS with the new powertrain in Malaysia will be the world premiere and introduced for the first time ahead of other countries.

"We believe that this new model will excite the market with its advanced styling and engineering as Honda continues to lead the way in pioneering benchmarks and introducing Next Generation Advanced Technology that is ahead of its time,” said Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Toichi Ishiyama.
