PETALING JAYA: Honda Malaysia announced ahead of its upcoming official launch that the all-new City RS i-MMD will be offered with Honda Sensing.

The enhanced Honda Sensing system in the all-new City RS i-MMD utilizes a front wide view camera to recognize better road boundaries during day and night driving conditions.

Developed by Honda to meet the objective of ‘Safety for Everyone” and to realize the vision of a collision-free mobile society, Honda Sensing is an advanced safety system to alert and assist drivers during various driving situations.

The Honda Sensing features are: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Auto High-Beam (AHB).

Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Toichi Ishiyama said, “I believe the upcoming 5th Generation all-new City will excite Malaysians with its advanced safety technology and class-leading features. Last month, we organised an on-going nationwide tour where people can take the opportunity to view the All-New City RS i-MMD up close.

"We are delighted to receive high interest and positive feedback from the public and bookings have been very encouraging. The all-new City RS i-MMD offers first in segment features such as Remote Engine Start, Honda LaneWatch and Electric Parking Brake. We are now raising the benchmark further to introduce a most complete Honda Sensing feature in its segment which was previously only available in the C, D and SUV segment.”

Compared to its predecessor, the new City is now longer by 111mm, wider by 54mm and lowered by 10mm, providing a low and wide stable stance.

The 5th Generation new City’s line-up will feature four new variants. The RS variant with intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) powertrain delivers maximum torque of 253Nm, which is highest in its class and is comparable to D-segment torque performance, for an exciting and thrilling acceleration driving feel.

The new City will also be offered in a new 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine.
