Just weeks after the car’s debut in Thailand and its sighting over here, Honda Malaysia has opened the order books for the facelifted Honda City starting today – the B-segment sedan receives a number of tweaks inside and out, plus added kit.

At the front, there are redesigned headlights, joined together by a new chrome bar inspired by the new Civic; the grille also gains a new honeycomb mesh and a chrome strip. The front and rear bumpers have also been reprofiled, and the top-spec V trim gains LED headlights and fog lights, new two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels, a ducktail spoiler with integrated LED brake light and LED tail lights – the last two are not available in Thailand.


No mention of changes to the interior, but we should get the darker gunmetal trim, redesigned seat fabric (with the Civic’s centre stripe) and LED map and room lights offered on Thai models. All models now get keyless entry and push-button start, while the V variant finally receives a multi-angle reverse camera.

All models retain the 1.5 litre i-VTEC four-cylinder engine, mated to an Earth Dreams CVT transmission; although outputs have yet to be announced, expect them to stay the same at 120 PS and 145 Nm. Safety-wise, all models now come with Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), with the V variant adding six airbags as before.
