    The Toyota Yaris has been a best seller for UMW Toyota since its launch in April 2019. Priced from RM 70,888, the Yaris was designed to give Perodua Myvi owners a vehicle to upgrade. UMW Toyota worked with its car financing partner, Toyota Capital to offer buyers monthly installment payments from just RM 700.00 and this effort got sales moving fast in the past two years.

    At the same time, its nearest rival, the Honda Jazz was already seeing a slow decline in demand as the 2020 Honda Jazz had been unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show that same year and it looked like a winner, which led many Malaysians, including us to believe its arrival in Malaysian Honda showrooms was just around the corner.

    Well, Covid-19 arrived and it seems that this was not to happen and the 2020 Honda Jazz launch date in Malaysia was all quiet.

    Meanwhile, in the middle of 2021, Honda Malaysia teased the possibility of the City Hatchback arriving in Malaysia as it was well-received in the Philippines where it was launched in early 2021 with sales success and also its sales success in Thailand where it had its global unveiling in late 2020.

    This all-new Honda model, the City Hatchback comes with versatility which is one of the many reasons for its strong appeal to Malaysians. The well-known Honda Ultra Seat is included which easily adapts to a wide variety of the owner’s lifestyle and cargo-carrying needs.

    Aside from its versatile interior design, driving performance, and fuel efficiency, the City Hatchback is equipped with very advanced safety features that are shared with the popular City sedan and even the Civic and HR-V.
