Petaling Jaya, 29 August 2019 - Honda Malaysia (or the Company) today introduced a Special Edition for its best-selling model, the City in the market. The City Special Edition*** offers two colour options - White Orchid Pearl and Passion Red Pearl.
The City Special Edition is now available with additional value-added features to offer more convenience to the customers such as the Digital Video Recorder (DVR), Built-in Toll Reader, Door Visors and Trunk Organiser. The DVR offers peace of mind for drivers with a security function feature which records real-time on-the-road journeys, including rear view recording for all-round footage. Meanwhile, the Built-in Toll Reader offers convenience for frequent toll users when going through tolls. The Built-in Toll Reader is ready for use once a Touch & Go card is slotted in. This feature connects directly to the car’s power source, requiring no additional battery and removing all hassles of having to change batteries.
The City Special Edition also comes with aerodynamically-designed Door Visors which essentially act as rain guards where driver or passengers in the car can roll the windows slightly down for fresh air when it rains. The Trunk Organiser ensures every item is in place for ease and convenience during daily commute. These practical features are expected to enhance the City Special Edition’s value as a competitively-priced package in the B-segment.
Commenting on the City Special Edition, Mr. Toichi Ishiyama, Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer said, “For many years now, the City has been the best-selling B-segment model in Malaysia. As a way to give more value to Malaysians who have been very supportive towards Honda Malaysia, we have decided to introduce a Special Edition to the City with an attractive price of RM75,955** in conjunction with our Road to 900,000th Unit Milestone Campaign. I hope everyone can grab the opportunity and visit any of our 98 Honda dealerships nationwide to view, test drive and book the City Special Edition today!”.
