Honda Sensing now available in non-hybrid City through new V-Sensing variant for Malaysia
Ever since the fifth-generation Honda City was first launched in Malaysia, the only way you could your hands on the popular B-segment sedan with Honda Sensing was with the headlining RS hybrid variant. But as Honda Malaysia gears up to launch the City Hatchback as the effective successor of the Honda Jazz, it has also rolled out a new variant for the sedan called the City V-Sensing, which is as self-explanatory as it gets.
The basis of the car is the City V, which tops the non-hybrid range with features such as full-LED lighting, six airbags and the nifty Honda LaneWatch camera, all for the price of RM86,561 without SST. The new Honda V-Sensing is essentially the same car with the addition of Honda Sensing, priced at RM90,212 without SST, meaning it's effectively the most affordable Honda model featuring the brand's suite of semi-autonomous driver aids.
This works out to a premium of roughly RM3,600 for a comprehensive list of ADAS features including adaptive cruise control, collision warning and mitigation, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation and automatic high beam. That's not a bad trade at all, unless you want to go all the way to the top of the food chain with the torque-rich City RS hybrid of course.
