The facelifted Honda City is about to get its Malaysian launch tomorrow, and thanks to the power of drones employed by Honda Malaysia, we can see that more than a few owners will be set to take delivery of their new B-segment sedans shortly after tomorrow’s debut.
The City’s mid-lifecycle update brings changes to both its interior and exterior. On the outside, redesigned headlights are joined by a new chrome bar, along with a revised grille featuring a new chrome strip and honeycomb mesh. Its front and rear bumpers have also been given a new profile. For Malaysia, the City range will be streamlined to three variants – S, E, and V, omitting the S+ variant from the pre-facelift line-up.
The range-topping V variant gets LED headlamps, tail lights, foglamps, and brake light. All City variants now get keyless entry and push-button engine start, with a multi-angle reverse camera added to the top V variant. In Thailand, the cabin gains redesigned seat fabric as well as LED map/room lighting. We’ve yet to see the local spec car’s interior.
Safety-wise, all variants get Vehicle Stability Assist, hill start assist and emergency stop signal; the V gets six airbags. Motive power is provided by the 1.5 litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated inline-four, paired to an Earth Dreams CVT for the driven front wheels; prior to confirmation at tomorrow’s launch, the powerplant’s outputs stand at 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque.
