Hello from Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC), where the paultan.org Auto Car Expo (ACE) 2021, co-sponsored by Carsome, opened its doors to the public this morning. You’ve read our roundup for all the deals from all 12 carmakers at ACE, now let’s zoom in on each brand.

On display are Honda Malaysia’s local range consisting of sedans and SUVs in various sizes, plus the Jazz hatchback. The sedans are the City, Civic and Accord; while the SUV range has the three-row BR-V, the HR-V and the CR-V. All these models are CKD locally assembled in Melaka, which means that they come with the full 100% sales tax exemption, which expires on June 30.

In addition to SST savings, Honda is having the “Sama-Sama Rewards” campaign for April, which offering up to RM5,000 of cash rebates, which consists of a “festive rebate” and a “Honda bonus”.

As you’d expect, the biggest rebates are attached to the car with the biggest price tag. The Honda Accord is the local flagship model and it comes with RM4,000 off for the top-spec 1.5L TC-P and RM5,000 off for the 1.5L TC. Next up is the BR-V with RM3,000 off for both E and V grades. Both the HR-V (all three variants) and CR-V (all three variants) SUVs are yours for RM1,500 off.

The latest version of Honda’s top seller, the City, comes with a rebate of up to RM2,000 in April. That’s for the mid-spec E; the base S and top V get RM1,000 off. The range-topping hybrid City RS e:HEV is not included in this sales campaign.

Last but not least are the Civic and Jazz. Both these models are global icons for the H brand, and the current FC Civic and GK Jazz are in the twilight of their lifecycles, to be replaced in the near future. From my unscientific observation, it seems that not all are wowed by the next-gen Civic’s looks – in any case, today’s FC is more aggressive in appearance. As for the Jazz, the roomy monobox is set to be replaced locally by the City Hatchback.

This means that time is running out if you’re a fan of both these cars. The ever-popular Civic is yours for RM1,000 off (all three variants), while the Jazz gets a RM1,500 discount for all three variants.

That’s all from Honda, but that’s not all. If you purchase a Honda at ACE, we’re topping the deal up with an extra RM2,550 worth of vouchers, plus a shot at a lucky draw offering smartphones worth RM2,300 each and a holiday package worth RM10,000.
