Honda City Hatchback – OverviewThe Honda City Hatchback has joined its seventh generation sedan sibling, and this 3-door body style was last used in 1994, in the first generation Honda City. This new hatchback debuted globally in Thailand late last year, and since then it has also been launched in Indonesia early this year. Whispers say that Malaysia will see it in late 2021, and it will replace the Honda Jazz in our market. This is lamentable, as the new Jazz is mad cute.
Three variants are available in the Land of Smiles: S+, SV, and at the top of the range, the RS. All three feature a new 1.0-litre VTEC Turbo 3-cylinder engine that also works with E20 gasoline. It can only be paired to a CVT. In Indonesia, only the RS variant is available, but it will be powered by a 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine, with two transmission options: manual or CVT.
