Petaling Jaya, 9 March 2022 – Honda Malaysia (or the Company) today introduced new colour options for its best‑selling models – the City, and flagship model – the Accord, to provide more attractive colour choices to Honda customers. Both models offer Meteoroid Gray Metallic colour that replaces the existing Modern Steel Metallic colour, while the City will also receive a fresh and vibrant Ignite Red Metallic colour option, replacing the Passion Red Pearl colour.
Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Ms. Madoka Chujo said, “The Ignite Red Metallic and Meteoroid Gray Metallic colours were introduced in the All‑New City Hatchback for the first time. Both colours have been well accepted by the market and we expanded the new colour options to the All‑New Civic. To further excite the market, we are now offering these new colour options in the City and Accord as well. The new colours further emphasise the styling of the City and elevate the sleek profile of the Accord. We will continue to enhance our products to deliver the Joy of Buying to the customers.”
The 5th Generation City has captivated the hearts of Malaysians with its overall package, comprising sporty design, advanced technology and unrivalled performance. To‑date, there are more than 32,500 units of this City on Malaysian roads since its launch and it was Honda Malaysia’s best‑selling model in January and February 2022 with 38% contribution to the Company’s overall sales during that period.
The City RS e:HEV variant is powered by a 1.5L Sports intelligent Multi‑Mode Drive (i‑MMD) powertrain, delivering a power output of 109PS and segment‑leading 253Nm torque that is equivalent to a D‑segment Naturally Aspirated engine torque performance. Meanwhile, the petrol variants of V‑SENSING, V, E and S of the City also offer range‑topping driving performance with the 1.5 DOHC i‑VTEC powertrain that produces 121PS of power and a maximum torque of 145Nm.
The City comes with a host of advanced features, some of which are a first in the segment such as Electric Parking Brake (EPB) and Remote Engine Start. The City is also fitted with a first‑in‑segment safety feature – Honda LaneWatch *¹ that helps to monitor blind spots for safer lane changing. Overall, the City sets a higher safety standard in the B‑segment as the model offers the enhanced Honda SENSING *2 with seven advanced safety features.
The 10th Generation Accord was introduced to the Malaysian market in 2020. It was the first time a Japanese mass market manufacturer introduced a Turbocharged engine in a D‑segment car. The model received favourable response from Malaysians with more than 2,200 units sold to date. The Accord is an ideal car for customers who seek an executive sedan with dynamic performance, elegant design and premium features. Under the hood of the Accord is an enhanced 1.5L VTEC Turbocharged engine that offers maximum power output of 201PS and maximum torque of 260Nm, which is more powerful than a 2.4L engine performance.
