The date ’12.12’ only occurs once a year and to celebrate this last pairing of numbers for 2020, Honda Malaysia will be having a special sales campaign – the ‘12.12 Special Sales’ – with a rebate worth RM2,000 for the latest 5th Generation Honda City (S and E variants).
The ‘All-New City 12.12 Special Sales’ will be on from today until December 12, 2020. Registration of the cars can take place anytime during this month of December. Customers will be entitled to the rebate once they fulfil the booking and registration requirements at any Honda authorised dealership nationwide.
“On behalf of Honda Malaysia, I would like to convey my appreciation to all Malaysians for the unwavering support to the Honda brand. The All-New City have recorded significant sales performance since its launch with more than 9,000 bookings. We are pleased to offer customers the opportunity of owning their dream car and experiencing the ‘Joy of Buying’ with the ‘All-New City 12.12 Special Sales’ in conjunction with the year-end festive season by giving special rebate,” said Honda Malaysia’s Managing Director & CEO, Toichi Ishiyama.
Extra savings with sales tax exemption
He also reminded customers that they can benefit from extra savings with the sales tax exemption which will be available until December 31, 2020.
All variants of the new City (except the RS which will be available in January 2021) come with a new 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC engine, coupled with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The powertrain produces up to 121 ps, which is the highest in its class, with maximum torque of up to 145 Nm.
Features on the City E variant included Paddle Shifters as well as a first-in-segment Remote Engine Start feature that allows running of the air-conditioner before entering the car to cool down the cabin. This variant also comes with an 8-inch display panel for the infotainment system which has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Comfort levels are higher as rear passenger legroom has been expanded and the rear occupants now have a cooler journey with Rear Air Conditioning Ventilation.
Extensive safety features
Though an entry-level model, the City has many safety systems to help the driver avoid an accident. These include ABS, Vehicle Stability Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist. Additionally, there is also an Emergency Stop Signal system and Hill Start Assist. ISOFIX childseat points are provided and a Rear Seatbelt Reminder helps to ensure that rear occupants have their seatbelt on so as to comply with traffic laws.
