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
