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.
