During the launch of the all-new 2017 Honda CR-V, Honda Malaysia mentioned that there will be two more launches this year, which we speculated to be the City Hybrid and HR-V Hybrid.
We were on the North South Expressway earlier today when we spotted this covered up car on the back of a trailer. Upon closer inspection, we noticed that this was most likely the upcoming Honda City Hybrid. One of the hints was the rims used, as this covered up car has identical 16-inch alloy wheels as the current Honda City Grade V.
The new model could be positioned as a mid-range model, equivalent to the Jazz Grade E.
As for the City Hybrid's powertrain, it should mirror that of the Jazz Hybrid. The new Honda Jazz Hybrid will arrive in showrooms in August.
