ACE 2022: Honda City Hatchback – safety, practicality and efficiency in a stylish and spacious package
Do you have a restaurant or makan place that you always fall back on because it’s dependable and you know exactly what you’re going to get? I have a couple of those. Yes, there are plenty of new options, and some of the new stuff are indeed good, but nothing satisfies like the “old favourites”. Like those trusted outlets, the Honda City is proven quality.
The B-segment benchmark is now available in hatchback form with an added dash of style and practicality. Honda is famous for great interior packaging, exemplified by the Ultra Seats with four modes. In Utility Mode, fold the rear seats flat for maximum capacity. In Long Mode, recline the front passenger seat and lower the rear seat to accomodate long items. In Refresh Mode, fold back the front seats to create a resting lounge. In Tall Mode, flip up the rear seat base to load tall items.
Safety is always a priority and the City Hatchback is available with Honda Sensing, an ADAS driver assist pack that includes Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keep Assist System, Forward Collision Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Auto High Beam and Adaptive Cruise Control. Honda LaneWatch gives you live feed of your blind spot.
Other cool and useful features include Remote Engine Start and an 8.0-inch display audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The City Hatchback is powered by either a proven 1.5 litre DOHC i-VTEC engine or an economical hybrid powertrain in the range-topping e:HEV RS variant. Try out the City Hatchback for size at ACE 2022 this weekend, happening from 9am to 7pm at the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC).
