In Brief: Honda City 2019, still the default choice?

(Honda City 2019 Model | Gallery)The fourth-generation Honda City arrived locally in 2014 and it was among the first in the segment to offer six airbags with stability control, putting it ahead of the competition at the time.While it was packed with features, it did receive changes that enthusiasts were not fond of – the move from a 5-speed gearbox to a CVT unit and the switch from disc brakes at the rear to drums.Its nearest rival, the Toyota Vios, does get all-round disc brakes but at th

Review: Honda City Hybrid – electrified performance for the masses

(Model | Gallery)The Honda City needs no introduction, as it is Malaysias favourite non-national B-segment sedan.Honda Malaysia offers several variants of the City, ranging from the affordable City 1.5 S (from RM 73,836) all the way up to the City Hybrid (from RM 92,172). We reckon that the Honda City Hybrid is worth it, as the sophisticated powertrain transforms the unassuming Honda City into a capable performer that does not sacrifice fuel consumption.Exterior – Few Hybrid emblems that s

Launched in 2019, should you buy a Toyota Vios over a 2020 Honda City or Nissan Almera?

2020 has been quite the rollercoaster, hasn’t it? It was a quiet first half - no thanks to Covid-19 - and now we’re getting a barrage of cars we’ve been waiting for: the Nissan Almera and Honda City, among others.The Hyundai Kona is yet another exciting new model.If you’re in the B-segment sedan market, you may have noticed a distinct lack of news on the Toyota Vios. Last we heard of it was during its refresh in the Philippines but it got completely eclipsed by

Is there a city car with a better interior than this all-new Honda Jazz?

By now you would’ve seen the all-new Honda Jazz, which made its world premiere yesterday at the opening of the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show in Japan, where the Jazz is sold as the Fit.The fourth generation Honda Jazz will only go on sale in Japan in February 2020 so details like body dimensions and engine specifications are still unclear, but we do know that in Japan (and Europe), the all-new Honda Jazz will be sold exclusively as a hybrid.It will most likely be a 1.5-litre full hybrid but unlike

2020 Honda new models – Accord, City, and more for Malaysia!

Surprising as it may sound, Honda Malaysia launched only one new model in 2019, which was the facelifted Honda HR-V. That marks quite a drop, considering that Honda Malaysia was rather aggressive with new product launches back in 2017 and 2018. The reason is due to delays in pricing approvals by the government, which not only delayed products from Honda, but other manufacturers as well.Pay BMW money for an Accord?The all-new tenth-generation Honda Accord has found its way across multip

Toyota Vios vs Honda City; How do they compare?

The hottest car segment is undeniably the B-segment sedans. You can’t talk about the Honda City without mentioning the Toyota Vios and likewise. But have you ever compared the two cars’ equipment list side by side?For this comparison, we compare the range topping Toyota Vios G variant against the Honda City V variant and City Hybrid as well.Toyota made a huge mark when they debuted the Vios in 2003, but the third generation, unfortunately, let the model down allowing the City to

2020 Honda City 1.5L V – Best bang-for-the-buck variant?

Review: Toyota Vios - This over the Honda City?

(2019 Toyota Vios prices and specs | Gallery)To begin with, a full disclosure – my daily is a 2014 (third generation pre-facelift) Toyota Vios and some bias may be involved in this review, but not in the way that you think, its actually against the Toyota Vios.Personally, the Toyota Vios has never been appealing because to me, it is merely a means to avoid our national brands. And when my family decided to get one back in 2014, needless to say I wasnt particularly thrilled by the news.2014

2020 Honda Civic: What makes the interior class-leading?

The interior of the 2020 Honda Civic as Honda tells us is designed with the man maximum, machine minimum philosophy in mind. Which is just another way to say they squeezed out every bit of space possible, really.More than meets the eye?Is that really the case though? Lets take a closer look at the Civics interior and pit some notable changes against its older one, just so you have an idea on whats new and see if it really does embody Hondas philosophy.Without further ado...Good ergonomicsSpace i

Pros and Cons: Toyota Vios - still can fight the 2020 Nissan Almera and Honda City?

October is about to be the hottest month yet - not in terms of weather, but in new car launches. The B-segment will be particularly busy, since well see the all-new Honda City and Nissan Almera coming into play. If priced right, the Proton X50 can eat into the sedans sales too.This leaves the Toyota Vios (alongside the VW Vento) as the only ones without the shiny all-new tag then. Two words that seemingly make a ton of difference, but is that really the case?Pros - Drives better than you thinkSa

The first ever 2021 Honda City Hatchback made its global debut in Thailand earlier today. Following the same formula as the Toyota Yaris and Toyota Vios (sold as Yaris Ativ in Thailand), the City Hatchback will have an identical front-end as the City sedan, and will replace the Honda Jazz, which has been sold in this region for three generations. 2020 Honda Jazz (Fit) is cute but unless you are an anime fan, few here can accept its looksThe fourth generation Honda Jazz however, will skip market
