2020 City RS i-MMD Preview Article and Video:






Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Toichi Ishiyama said, “I believe the upcoming 5th Generation All-New City will excite Malaysians with its advanced safety technology and class-leading features. Last month, we organised an on-going nationwide tour where people can take the opportunity to view the All-New City RS i-MMD up close. We are delighted to receive high interest and positive feedback from the public and bookings have been very encouraging. The All-New City RS i-MMD offers first in segment features such as Remote Engine Start, Honda LaneWatch and Electric Parking Brake. We are now raising the benchmark further to introduce a most complete Honda SENSING feature in its segment which was previously only available in the C, D and SUV segment.”

“For the All-New City, we have implemented several technology enhancements for facilities in the Melaka manufacturing plant such as new inner frame welding to enhance its body rigidity and new spray polyurethane foam to reduce body noise and vibration. This is to ensure utmost quality so that customers can continue to enjoy owning a Honda car. On top of that, Honda Malaysia is the first and only car manufacturer in the country to assemble an Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) from individual lithium-ion battery components to a complete power unit where the assembly process is on par with the technology in Honda Japan. We are confident that the exciting and advanced features in the All-New City will be attractive to our customers and we look forward to bringing the Joy of Buying to all Malaysians,” added Mr. Ishiyama.

Wonder if the ACC comes with low speed follow. This car has more features than entry level BMW and Mercedes lol.

Design looks good as well.

Answer myself, no low speed follow.

Indeed. Because SUV you get a ”bigger” car than a sedan. And I think Malaysians will still shy away from the I-MMD, fearing problems and resale value.

Honda might have the upper hand, zero RPM torque beb
Macam yes.

so it's inferior to the facelift civic's adaptive cruise control?
i thought the honda sensing package would do low speed follow by default

Yes in that sense it is inferior.

The new X50 would have low speed follow with stop and go -- provided you don't stop for more than 3 seconds. The existing X70 does not have this feature.
