If you think we’ve covered all possible angles of the 2014 Honda City by now, well, you thought wrong, as here comes our spec-by-spec comparison of the four available grades in Malaysia. The new City’s prices vary from RM75,800 for the base S to the range-topping V’s RM90,800, and the like-for-like pictures below show you all their differences.
Obviously, all the fancy features (platinum grille, 16-inch wheels, touch-sensitive multimedia head unit and automatic air-con controls, six airbags) are exclusive to the most expensive Grade V, while the entry-level variant appears rather basic in comparison (silver-painted grille, 15-inch steel wheels with covers, single-DIN head unit, manual air-con, dual airbags).
Meanwhile, the S and S+ models are also marked out by their conventional front fender indicators and body-coloured door handles, next to the E and V’s wing mirror-mounted LED repeaters and chrome grips. Beyond the obvious are smaller spec changes too, such as the traditional antenna on the S, as opposed to the stylish shark fin-like item on the others.
A Grade V example fitted with the optional Modulo and Premium packages are pictured below too. You can refer to the official spec sheet for a more detailed list of the equipment spread. With such big differences in prices though, it’s fair to say that you get what you pay for with Honda’s new Toyota Vios rival. Or should we say Vios-beater? Find out in our initial drive report of the new City.
