According to Honda Malaysia, heroes are usually dressed in shades of red – we’ll let you form your own conclusions on that notion. However, we do have to admit that the Honda City, recently revealed with a new crimson coat called ‘Dark Ruby Red Pearl‘, looks rather dashing indeed.

Unfortunately, those hoping for any additional changes will be disappointed to know that there would be none – aside from the current Honda City range losing its Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic colour, that is. Yes, you read that right. The new shade replaces the blue first offered on the City – the Jazz hatch, meanwhile, loses the same shade of blue but does not receive the new colour option.

What’s the reason for the change, you ask? According to Honda Malaysia, a survey conducted showed that a majority of buyers preferred red as a colour option for the Honda City – as such, the new shade is expected to form around 300 monthly orders.

As for the video, it goes on to highlight the various USPs aboard the Honda City, which includes push-start capabilities on select variants, a seven-inch display screen and a touch panel auto air-conditioning system along with an array of USB and power sockets. Also, do note that the updated batch of Honda City models have had its reverse sensor count reduced from four to two.
