This colour was shown by Honda Malaysia on a Type R demo car, but was never officially offered.
Looks like the stubby-butt City has got its looks department all sorted out then, thanks to its 'baby Mercedes-Benz A-Class' looks and now this Type R colour.
In Thailand, it is powered by a 1.0-litre DOHC VTEC turbo engine, capable of making 122 PS and 173 Nm. The three-cylinder mill is paired to a CVT.
Like its sedan counterpart, the hatch comes with LED head and tail lights (lower variants get halogen units), a shark fin antenna and new alloy wheels (15-inch for SV and V; 16-inch for RS).
The City Hatchback is slated to replace the Honda Jazz in Malaysia, and will compete against the 2021 Toyota Yaris. Whether or not they'll carry this colour - if they do, it'll be first time ever here - is yet to be seen.
Same case with the Obsidian Blue Pearl, which is available in the Land of Smiles but has been discontinued here. Write in to your dealer if you really love it, maybe you can make a difference.
With humble beginnings collecting diecast models and spending hours virtually tuning dream cars on the computer, his love of cars has delightfully transformed into a career. Sanjay enjoys how the same passion for cars transcends boundaries and brings people together.
