City Pros & Cons

Things We Like in City

In all these years, the Honda City has been a benchmark when it comes to space on the inside. The current generation Honda City still manages to outclass all of its rivals when it comes to outright space and comfort on the inside, with a clear focus on the comfort of the occupants at the rear. The legroom and under-thigh support of the Honda City’s rear seat still manages to be in a league of cars from one segment above.

The Honda City’s 1.5-litre petrol engine, despite being a decade old now, still has the sweetness and refinement which one would expect from an entry-level sedan. Not only this, the performance levels too is quite decent, and while it misses out the on the zing of the first-generation version, the engine still feels zesty enough to bring out the fun side of yours.

With features like electric sunroof, full LED headlamps, leather upholstery, curtain airbags, and push-button start-stop system, the Honda City has got all the features at right places to make you feel that you have brought a premium car at its price.

Things We Dont Like in City

While the arrow shot design still manages to impress everyone with its aerodynamic profile, the fact that this very design is in existence for almost a decade now makes it look a bit dated. The features like LED headlamps and machined alloy wheels do try to hide its age, but it still needs a refresh now, considering the fact that all of its competitors have been updated quite comprehensively in recent times.

While the interior feels feature-rich and premium, the overall layout of the dashboard, as well as instrument console too, needs an upgrade. Some of the switches and plastics feel a bit low in quality, which do not go well with the overall premium theme of the car.

Recent Updates of City

To spice the competition further, Honda Malaysia is all set to introduce the next-gen Honda City 2020 to take on the key rivals like Toyota Vios. It is likely that the upcoming model will be similar to the ones launched in India but, we don't have any official statement on the specs front. With a series of teaser images, and what we have seen on the Thai-spec model, the upcoming Honda City will be having a sharp front fascia with tones of technological advancements. What is also expected is a 1.0-litre Turbo three-cylinder DOHC engine that can churn out a maximum power output of 122 PS at 5500 rpm and 173 Nm of peak torque from 2000 to 45000 rpm. 

However, the sedan is currently available in four variants - 1.5L S, 1.5L E, 1.5L V, and 1.5L Hybrid, with a starting price of RM 75,295. All the trims are powered by the same 1.5-litre petrol mill with the hybrid one getting some extra power and torque numbers, thanks to the added electric motor.

City Overview

The Honda City has been the go-getter entry level sedan for many, owing to its big car appeal at a much more affordable price point and economic yet energetic engine options, since a very long time. The current Honda City comes with a two powertrain option constituting a total of four variants, and a slew of paint schemes – Lunar Silver, White Orchid, Modern Steel, Passion Red, and Crystal Black.

Honda City Interior & Features

While the outer design of the Honda City still has some more years with its futuristic appeal, the interior cabin has begun to show its age. Nevertheless, it still manages to justify this sedan, with its broad design for the dashboard and center console.

The V-shaped theme for the centre of the steering wheel, with round buttons for audio, bluetooth and cruise control, looks and feels nice to hold, while the instrument console with blue backlit too looks nice, despite the dated fonts on display.

The centre console is slightly shifted towards the driver side, and feels quite upmarket with the large touchscreen infotainment system and a trapezoidal touch-sensitive panel for automatic climate control below it. The silver accents for the all-black coloured interior look nice as well.

While the Honda City is an entry-level and the most affordable sedan in the lineup of Honda in Malaysia, the car shows no signs of compromise when it comes to rear-seat comfort and space, which is capacious enough for five passengers. At 536 litres, even the boot space is massively impressive and outclasses some sedans above its class.

City Exterior

While the Honda City in this iteration has been in existence for almost half a decade and the launch of an all-new generation model is just around the corner, this version of Honda City still looks modern, thanks to its aerodynamic stance.

The slanting front profile with angular full LED headlamps with daytime running LEDs, along with thick chrome slab forming the front grille makes it look premium enough. Even the front fog lamps are full white LED units.

The side profile of the Honda City looks athletic, with a flowing design towards the rear, with the thick prominent character lien flowing through the doors. The machined alloy wheels and chrome door handles add to the rich appeal of this sedan.

The rear maintains the wide and sporty stance of the front, with sweptback LED tail lamps, along with a sleek chrome garnish joining these tail lamps.


Honda City Ride & Handling

Every generation of Honda City has been known for the perfect balance of plush ride quality and agile and sporty handling characteristics, and this particular version follows the suite as well. With Macpherson struts at the front and a torsion beam at the rear, the Honda City’s softer suspension setup and accurately weighted steering make up for an enthusiastic driving dynamic combination.

City Engine & Fuel Consumption

One can have the Honda City with one of the two engine options. While the 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which is coupled to a CVT gearbox and produces a maximum power output of 120 PS and 145 Nm of peak torque output, it is the 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid version which is the real deal. This variant sports a combination of the 1.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor, which is mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and produces a combined power and torque outputs of 138 PS and 170 Nm respectively.


Honda City Braking & Safety

The Honda City’s safety equipment list consists of front, side and curtain airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, vehicle stability assist, hill start assist, ISOFIX mounts for child seats, emergency stop signal and reverse parking sensors with camera.


City Verdict

The current generation Honda City might be an ageing product, however, it still has got the evergreen charm in its styling, which still looks youthful with the aerodynamic stance and LED lights. The City shows a perfect balance of plush ride quality and sporty chassis setup, which makes it an equally enjoyable car for both front and rear seat occupants.
