Facelifted Honda City Hatchback launched, prices higher and start from RM86K

KUALA LUMPUR: The facelifted Honda City Hatchback is launched today, priced from around RM86,000.

It continues to be offered in five variants, starting with the S grade at RM85,900 (on-the-road without insurance); E at RM90,900 ; V at RM95,900 ; Petrol RS at RM100,900; and e:HEV RS hybrid at RM112,900.

Previously, they were RM78,900 (S), RM86,900 (E), RM91,900 (V), RM95,900 (V-Sensing, replaced by Petrol RS in 2024) and RM109,900 (e:HEV RS).  In effect, there are now two versions of the RS from 2024 - a regular petrol variant and a hybrid one.

The new City Hatchback has received enhancements and upgrades to its exterior, offering a more energetic and sporty outlook with a newly designed honeycomb front grille, front ower grille, LED front fog lights garnish and rear bumper lower garnish.

New "Berlina Black" 16-inch alloy wheels and a new edgy-looking side sill garnish further elevate the sporty appeal of both RS variants.

The petrol RS and e:HEV RS variants is now longer with a refreshed exterior measuring 4,369mm in length while the S, E and V variants are 4,350 mm in length.

All variants now get the Honda Sensing safety suite as standard.

The Honda Sensing package includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Auto High Beam (AHB).

Newly added to the safety suite in 2024 is the Lead Car Departure Notification. Only the hybrid gets an extra Honda Sensing feature called Low Speed Follow.

The hatchback version of the City sedan was introduced nearly two and a half years ago.

It shares the same platform as the City sedan.


All hatchback variants are equipped with safety features such as six airbags and walk away auto lock.

The high-resolution multi-angle reverse camera are fitted in all variants except for S variant.

Additionally, the V and RS variants are also equipped with Honda LaneWatch to reduce blind spots.

The RS variants come with smartphone application integration named Honda CONNECT for safety, security and convenience.

Honda CONNECT is available as an optional accessory for S, E and V variants.

All petrol variants now feature paddle shifters as standard.

Meanwhile the RS e:HEV hybrid comes with a 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle dual camshaft i-VTEC engine coupled to an e-CVT transmission and an electric motor.

The engine delivers 98PS and 127Nm of torque while the electric motor pumps out 109PS and 253Nm of torque, which is class-leading.
