Honda has just launched the latest iteration of the Honda City hatchback, and man, it's as cool as ice!

The Honda City hatchback variant made its debut in the Malaysian market about two years ago, and since then, it's been turning heads among drivers across the country.

The refreshed Honda City Hatchback brings subtle yet significant improvements for everyone. With a sleek exterior, enhanced safety features, and the same dependable powertrain options, it's a win-win for drivers.

The first thing that catches your eye with the new City hatchback is its sleek and improved exterior

The revamped Honda City Hatchback flaunts a sportier and more dynamic look, accentuated by its exterior updates. Among these are a newly styled honeycomb front grille, a redesigned lower grille, and updated garnishes for the front fog lights.

A standard addition across the range is the new rear bumper lower garnish. For the top two RS variants, exclusive upgrades include fresh 16-inch Berlina Black alloy wheels and new side sill garnishes, further enhancing the unified aesthetic.

Exclusive to the City Hatchback RS variants are the striking red accents on the dashboard panel, adding to its sporty vibe, along with combi leather seats with red stitching. These variants also come equipped with an eight-inch Display Audio system that includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

Honda didn't cut corners when it comes to the car's safety features

Called Honda SENSING, this advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) is now available across all City hatchback variants. Here are some of the features included in the ADAS package:
