NEW LAUNCH: Honda City 1.5iVTEC

Today, I went to Honda Showroom to check out the newly launched Honda City. I was quite impressed by the car. It's available in 2 grades. "S" and "E", priced at RM85,000 and 89,980 OTR respectively. What is the difference between "S" and "E"?

"E" has the following extras:
- 16" alloy rims + tyres instead of 15"
- 60/40 split fold rear seats + recline instead of "Fixed rear seatback"
- Paddle shift + steering wheel audio control
- Others: Power retractable door mirrors, leather steering wheel and gear knob, door mirror integrated signal light, rear seat under tray.

The heart of the car lies a "4 cylinder 16v SOHC I-VTEC PGM-FI with 120ps@6600rpm and 145Nm@4800rpm mated with 5 speed automatic gearbox. Also, Electric Power Steering (EPS).

Safety features:
- 4 disc brakes ABS + EBD + BA
- Dual Airbags
- G-CON Technology body (G-force control)

The dimensions are as follows:

Length: 4395mm, Width: 1715mm, Height: 1470mm
Wheelbase: 2550mm
Weight: 1160kg
Fuel tank Cap: 42L
Boot space: 506L

BUT AND A BIG BUT. The SHOWROOM, "Sumber Auto Edaran" in Jalan Universiti SUCKS... It's FILLED WITH RUDE Service advisor and Sales Executives. Why? READ ON...

This is actually the 8th time I received a RUDE Treatment from this Showroom. It all began in 2003, when the "NEW" Honda City was launched... Or rather, shortly after the showroom launched... SEE Next blog entry for the FULL STORY.

Anyway, pictures tell a thousand words, here the photos...

That's all folks... Thanks for reading...
