GALLERY: Honda City 1.5L V in Passion Red Pearl

Honda Malaysia announced last month that the City can be ordered with a Passion Red Pearl paintjob, so here’s a full gallery of the B-segment model in that shade for your viewing pleasure.

The colour replaces the previous Dark Ruby Red Pearl, and was first offered for the facelifted HR-V. According to the company (at the time), the colour has proven to be quite popular among customers, accounting for 30% of the compact SUV’s sales.

This particular unit is the range-topping Grade V, which comes with 16-inch wheels, LED headlamps, fog lamps, daytime running lights and taillights, single-zone air-conditioning, leather upholstery, a 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, keyless entry with push start, six airbags and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).

Under the bonnet, there’s a 1.5 litre naturally-aspirate four-cylinder petrol engine that serves up 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque, with drive going to the front wheels via a CVT. This is applicable also to the mid-range Grade E and base Grade S, with the exception of the Hybrid that comes with an electric motor and a seven-speed dual-clucth automatic transmission.

The on-the-road pricing (without insurance) for the Grade V is RM86,983, and other colour options include Lunar Silver Metallic, White Orchid Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic and Crystal Black Pearl.

      Both of the engines you said are game changers. Proton Campro engine is a game over engine because of its lousy quality and unreliable. This is one of the reason why Proton sales is so dissapointing every year.

      If you want to compare to overseas, why didn’t you compare to SG? Overseas also but still far more expensive than us. Yeah everyone know most of the cars overseas are cheaper but what choice us Malaysian have? Migrate to overseas? Do pointless riot in front of gov building? or you want to sponsor everyone to migrate overseas? So we rather stick to our A-B milo tin, at least for now. Oh have you studied the car price in South East Asia? I think mostly the price lebih kurang only to us, correct me if I’m wrong.

  • Why this car sell so well? Does it comes with AEB, BSM, RCTA?

    Like or Dislike: Thumb up 1 Thumb down 1
    • Why? It didn’t need to have all that to success because Malaysians love it and that’s enough. I bought the first batch after it was launched back in 2014. Pros? Cruise Control, Rear AC, big boot plus i can fold the rear seat flat hence making my IKEA shopping easier. FC & pickup pun okay lah not bad. Cons? Ride not too comfy in long distance because the soft suspension and thin seats. Speedcut at 190kph (my wife’s 09′ Persona SE can reach 210kph max) and mine have a leaking at the rear door everytime it’s raining recently.

    One thing I hate about the City that the gallery unfortunently does not show is the bare body colour metal for the top of the door frames.

          Persona got Better torque by 5Nm than City but the kerb weight more than City itself, + Wet Clutch CVT doesn’t gave instant acceleration compared Torque Converter type CVT in City

          Putting a pun also useless if not exploring more depth into each cars specification

          • Oh puhlezz, spare me the sales spiel. I have driven this City before. The CVT on it is lethargic like h3ll. Driving it like normal takes forever in getting up to speed, more so when ECON mode is activated. I have to kerb stomp the pedal to get the car moving and not be a moving chicane to other road users.

            The Persona? No such thing. It might be jerky during the gear changes but it gets the car up to speed in a normal way.
