Last week saw the introduction of the Honda City Hybrid, forming the second part of Honda Malaysia’s two-pronged petrol-electric offensive after the Jazz Hybrid. The company’s Raya open house yesterday allowed us to take a closer look, so here’s a walk-around video that points you through the ins and outs of the hybrid sedan, as well as providing our first impressions of the driving experience.

Priced at RM89,200 on-the-road without insurance, the City Hybrid slots in between the petrol-powered 1.5 E and V variants – priced at RM84,600 and RM92,000 respectively – in the local lineup. Malaysia is the only country to receive the car outside Japan, where it is called the Grace Hybrid.

Under the bonnet sits Honda’s Sport Hybrid Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD) powertrain, combining a 110 PS/134 Nm 1.5 litre Atkinson-cycle i-VTEC engine with a 30 PS/160 Nm electric motor, a seven-speed dry dual-clutch transmission and a lithium-ion battery. The result is a total system output of 137 PS and 170 Nm of torque, along with a fuel consumption figure of 3.9 litres per 100 km.
