The Honda City facelift will be launching very soon, having already been previewed to the media last week. Order books for the refreshed B-segment sedan, which was launched in Thailand last month, opened on February 1.

Want a closer look before making a decision or just for curiosity? Honda Malaysia is bringing the City facelift to you, via mall displays and moving roadshows with a mobile truck. The latter starts today, and will visit the Damansara Uptown business area this afternoon, before moving to the SS2 pasar malam in PJ tonight. It will also visit Ipoh, Melaka, Seremban, Muar, Batu Pahat and Johor Bahru in the coming days.

The City receives a number of tweaks inside and out, plus added kit. Exterior revisions include redesigned headlights, which are now joined together by a new chrome bar inspired by the current Civic FC, as well as a reworked grille, which features a new honeycomb mesh and a chrome strip.

Elsewhere, the front and rear bumpers have been given a new profile, and the top-spec V grade variant shown here now features LED headlights and fog lights as well as new two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels. The model also gets LED tail lights and a ducktail spoiler with an integrated LED brake light.

We did not get a chance to peek inside, but as previously mentioned, we should get the darker gunmetal trim, redesigned seat fabric (with the Civic’s centre stripe) and LED map/room lights as seen on Thai models. All City variants now feature keyless entry and push-button start, while the V grade adds on a multi-angle reverse camera.

Safety-wise, all models now come with Vehicle Stability Assist, hill start assist and an emergency stop signal, with the V getting six airbags.

Under the hood, the City retains the 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine, mated to an Earth Dreams CVT transmission. No output numbers have been revealed as yet, but expect these to remain at 120 PS and 145 Nm. At Honda Malaysia’s media gathering last week, it was revealed that the model lineup will be streamlined from four variants (Grade S, S+, E and V) to three (S, E and V).
