A Closer Look at the 2017 Honda City Facelift

So, it has been a month since the facelifted Honda City made its Malaysian debut, featuring updated aesthetics, improved convenience features, as well as added safety equipment across the range.

On the exterior, notable updates include full-LED headlamps (V-grade variant only) with integrated LED daytime running lights, refreshed front bumper, new chrome grille, new dual tone alloy wheels, LED tail lights, and a ducktail spoiler with an integrated third brake light.

Inside, the biggest highlight is the addition of a 6.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, fitted on the City E and V variants. A Push Start button is available across the range now, and a redesigned meter cluster, with white illumination on the surrounds, is also fitted on all variants. Enthusiastic drivers will also appreciate the addition of paddle shifters, fitted on the E and V variants of the new City. 

The most substantial highlight of the new car is the inclusion of Vehicle Stability Assist, more commonly known as Electronic Stability Control (ESC) – is now available across the range.
