Another Facelift for Honda City 2007/08!

Honda Malaysia has executed a 3rd facelift for its top-seller, the City for 2007/08. Notable upgrades include a new honeycomb grille, glass-imprinted antenna, wing mirror turn signals, redesigned rear lights and body-coloured mud guards. Mechanically, both the i-DSI and VTEC are similar to the pre-facelift models.

Available in five colours: Sparkle Grey, Bluish Silver, Alabaster Silver Metallic, Nighthawk Black Pearl and Satellite Silver Metallic, the ‘new’ City is available at all Honda dealers with immediate effect.

Prices are (on-the-road inclusive of insurance) RM85,800 for the VTEC and RM79,800 for the i-DSI.

they should just change the car. it may have it's merits but personally, imho, it looks like a pregnant guppy. more successful attempts at grafting a tail to a hatchback design can be seen in the citroen c4 sedan, the suzuki sx4 sedan, the persona, even the aveo sedan looks more integrated.

Valid comments there. Like it or not, the all-new City must be up for sale by H2 2008, latest by Q4 2008. So this latest (and possibly final) facelift exercise is just a stop-gap measure.

On the other hand, it's a well known secret that the all-new Toyota VIOS will be launched very soon by UMWT in Malaysia.
