Honda City Reviews

  • The 2019 Honda City is the best selling non-national car in Malaysia. The B-segment sedan has dominated the market since its launch in 2014 when it made its arrival with VSC and traction control making it the safest car in its class compared to rivals Toyota Vios and Mazda 2. And the strength of the upcoming 2020 Honda City is only increasing. The current City's 1.5-litre engine dispenses 120 PS and 145 Nm. In 2017, Honda also introduced a Hybrid variant that produces 139 PS and 170 Nm combined and has a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.  (Toyota Vios vs Honda City; How do they compare?)

    Hondas are well-known for their class leading practicality, so it is not a surprise that the City has well distributed cubby holes and cup-holders in the most convenient places.

    Dashboard

    The City's dashboard isn't the most pleasing to look at but it is still a well-built interior with no-rattlings to be heard. Plastic quality is good though a little rough.

    Acceleration

    The City Hybrid variant makes the century sprint in 10.6 seconds.

    Engine Performance

    Honda is well known for a smooth drive from an efficient and reliable engine. The City's 1.5-litre engine, both standard and hybrid, is smooth getting up to speed and doesn't hesitate when on the highway. But unfortunately for the hybrid, power delivery is rather choppy at low speeds.

    Transmission Performance

    Honda has one of the best CVTs in the market, and the City's CVT has always been smooth though not the quietest. The DCT, on the other hand, is choppy when at low speed and jerks in first gear.

    Steering and Handling

    No matter which variant, the City has a light steering that allows a comfortable drive no matter on the highway or in tight parking lots in the city.

    Sound Proofing

    Unfortunately, the City is not the quietest car in the segment. With a noisy CVT combined with the lack of sound proofing, the City records at around 70 db at 110 km/h.

    Passenger Comfort 

    Honda has set the City's suspension to give a comfortable ride no matter what surface the car is on. The City also has a setup that easily irons out portholes to reduce the crash when driving through it as much as possible.

    The Honda City is the pioneer of safety systems like VSA and Traction Control when the current generation made its debut. The 2014 Honda City quickly became the nation's favourite non-national car and the facelifted 2017 Honda City continued the momentum and the offering of class-leading space and practicality.
