Honda Malaysia this morning launched the new Honda City 2020, the latest generation of popular B-segment sedan is a flying start with a 5,000-book collection. Household names come in four variants - three of which are made from 1.5-litre naturally aspirated engines, while the other is the world debut of the urban RS i-MMD hybrid.
RS's i-MMD system replaces the previous generation i-dcd and consists of a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine (98 HP / 127 Nm) and two motors. Ice functions primarily as a generator with the help of an integrated motor, which also acts as a starter. A larger second motor, which outputs 108 horsepower and 253 nm, delivers drive to the wheels. However, the engine can provide direct drive at high speed because it is more efficient than the motor in this case. The battery is a 1.3 kWh lithium-ion battery.
The RS will only be available in January 2021. At present, there are three traditional power models to choose from. S. The E and V use the same 1.5-liter naturally aspirated i-VTEC engine, a new DOHC version with a 121 HP / 145 nm torque. Power is transmitted to the front wheels through the CVT transmission. The claimed average fuel consumption is 5.4 liters per 100 km, or 18.5 km / L.
The prices for City S, E and V are RM 74,191, RM81,664 and RM86,561 respectively, excluding insurance premium. When the sales tax exemption expires in 2020, the City's prices in 2021 will be RM76,800, RM84,800 and RM89,800. There are a lot of differences between these four variants, and we compiled the toolkit in dot form here so that we can see it at a glance.
In 2020, a debate at Honda Motor City was that the Japanese automaker decided to use smaller engines, which in theory should mean lower power. But when the new 1.0-liter gasoline engine was launched, everyone was surprised that its horsepower and torque were 120 HP and 173 nm higher than the 118 hp and 145 nm torque of the upcoming 1.5-liter i-VTEC. This has been achieved through various engine assembly improvements, including the use of BorgWarner turbochargers, a 10:3 compression ratio that is more economical than 1.5L, and a Euro 5 compliant structure.
There are five colors to choose, which are Crystal Black Pearl, moon silver metal, modern steel metal, passion red pearl and Platinum White Pearl. But RS only offers the last three colors - grey, red and white. There is a modular five-piece body kit (front / rear spoiler under, side skirt, trunk spoiler) for RM4,473 and other packaging and separate options that we detail here.
