3-cylinder engine vibration, noise, and reliability: Still a problem?

In the recent years, we have welcomed some new three-cylinder engine cars to the world – the Nissan Almera 1.0 turbo, Honda City 1.0 turbo (Thailand), Proton X50, and more excitingly, the Toyota GR Yaris. Even Christian von Koenigsegg has channelled his genius into developing a 600 HP three-cylinder engine. With these developments however, some of us still remain very sceptical of them. We will never forget the underpowered three pots in tiny cars like the Perodua Kancil and Perodua Kelisa. Sure

Japan too has a problem with cars driving against traffic

The problem of motorists riding/driving against traffic is not unique to Malaysia, although your Facebook feeds will give you that it’s a growing problem confined only to Malaysia. Yesterday, a 35-year old man in Japan was killed when his Honda N-Box was hit head-on by a Toyota Crown driven by a 78-year old man who was driving against traffic. The incident happened yesterday 6-January, at 12.40 am at the Nishimeihan Expressway in Yamatokōriyama city, in Nara prefecture. The younger driver died o

Outgoing (old) GM6 generation Honda City – Is it still a good buy?

The outgoing generation Honda City will soon be replaced with an all-new model. Honda Malaysia have since released a teaser image for the all-new 2020 Honda City, which is expected to be launched in Malaysia within this quarter. To make way for the new model, dealers are offering discounts of at least RM 4,000. Don't expect the all-new Honda City to maintain the current price though. We have already explained why here.

2020 Honda City – What’s the minimum monthly salary to get a loan?

A couple of weeks ago, Honda Malaysia finally launched the all-new 2020 Honda City, replacing the GM6-generation model that was introduced back in 2014. Unlike the aspirational Honda Civic, the Honda City is aimed a more price-conscious crowd. In this article, we will take a look and see how much you need to earn before you can buy and maintain a Honda City. How much do I need to make?

Launching in Malaysia, 2021 Honda City Hatchback – No more Jazz, but who cares?

We might not be seeing the good old Honda Jazz in Malaysia anymore come next year. In 2019, the name “City Hatchback” popped up, indicating a new Honda to arrive in Malaysia soon. With such an obvious name as the Honda City Hatchback, the car is derived from one of the most popular B-segment saloons in Malaysia. Q: So, what about the Honda Jazz then? A: The Honda Jazz will likely be replaced by the City Hatchback in Malaysia. It will still be available for the European and Japanese markets. The

Has the 2021 Honda City Hatchback already won the cool factor against the Yaris?

Look, we get it - cool cars are nice to look at and in most cases, just as great to drive. Except there’s one problem - they’re usually just out of reach for the average Malaysian. But a certain Japanese carmaker is adamant to bring back the cool factor with the 2021 Honda City Hatchback. So what’s good with the City Hatchback? It made its world debut in Thailand in November, effectively bringing back a name that was last seen 27 years ago in 1994. But where this name is reignited, we wave goodb

Think the 2021 Honda City Hatchback looks weird? There’s a good reason why

The 2021 Honda City Hatchback made its global debut less than three months ago in Thailand. Honda’s latest B-segment hatchback will replace the Honda Jazz in nearly every South East Asian market except for Singapore, and will follow a similar one model, two body styles formula used by Toyota for the Vios sedan (Yaris Ativ in Thailand) and Yaris hatchback.

2020 Honda City Hatchback rendered; might replace the Honda Jazz

The Honda City Hatchback is about to make its official world debut and the IndianAutosBlog.com decided to make a rendering what the hatch would look like.

In the rendering, IAB’s digital artist Shoeb Kalania envisioned the City Hatchback as a 5-door hatch that will share the same styling cues as the new generation 2020 Honda City Sedan up until the B-pillar and is comp

Before we go any further, we need to establish two things. First, the all-new fifth generation 2020 Honda City RS e:HEV hybrid (GN series) is yet to be launched in Malaysia.
