All-new Honda City Hatchback debuts in Malaysia

All-new variant, Honda City Hatchback, replaces Honda Jazz

Honda Malaysia has launched the Honda City Hatchback. The new variant replaces the Honda Jazz, a hatchback that was also based on the Honda City platform.

There are three spec levels for the 1.5-litre petrol variant, V, E, and S; and a top-of-the-range hybrid model, the RS e:HEV. The hybrid will be launched in 2022.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine produces 119bhp and 145Nm of torque and is paired with a seven-speed CVT transmission. The RS e:HEV has a 1.5L Sports intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) engine with electric CVT (e-CVT). The output is 107bhp and 253Nm of torque, comparable to the performance from a D-segment naturally aspirated vehicle.

The RS e:HEV has gloss black front grilles, solid wing and door mirrors and two tone exterior.  Both the RS e:HEV and V variants have LED headlights with LED daytime running lights (DRL), LED front fog lights, tailgate spoiler and LED rear combination lights. They also have 16-inch alloy wheels. 

Carried over from the Jazz into the City Hatchback are the Ultra Seats, with four configurations for maximum user versatility. Other features, depending on spec level are:

  • remote engine and air-conditioning start
  • six air bags
  • Ultrasuede or leather seats
  • seven-inch TFT meter
  • rear air-con vents
  • eight-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity

Safety levels are class-leading with Honda Sensing in the RS e:HEV and V variants. The suite of driver assistance safety systems include:

  1. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) 
  2. Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  3. Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  4. Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS)
  5. Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
  6. Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  7. Auto High Beam (AHB)

In addition to that, the City Hatchback also comes with other standard safety features such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Rear Seat ISOFIX I-SIZE Type and Rear Seatbelt Reminder. Meanwhile, the RS e:HEV and V variants are equipped with 6 Airbags. The RS e:HEV variant also has Auto Brake Hold (ABH) for stop-and-go traffic conditions.
