just marketing strategy

yup hence some features are not given yet by Honda Malaysia. Might wait for FL as i was hoping for the paddle shifters and auto climate. But overall the coming city looks like a good package.

Notice that the transmission is CVT with Torque Converter, i.e. similar to Inspira/Lancer. The 4th Gen City IDSi/VTEC uses CVT with dry clutch. What does this mean for the new City? Smoother slow speed drive (like in traffic jam) and potentially much better reliability.

It is logical for them to use Torque Converter, if they return to use the dry clutch, it means that they never learn from their past mistakes wink.gif

if they never learn from their past mistakes, give any type of CVT to Honda (M) also they can condemn it.

somehow the preview at paradigm mall isn't as "generous" as the preview of Honda Civic...

the civic at least let people to get into the cabin to have a feel of the interior.

It's kind of like a teaser. I think they will go aggressive after the launch on 13 March.

The one on display at Paradigm mall is E spec according to the salesman. So no 6 airbags, only 2. Then I go ask them about the rear drum brakes . He says this time all variants , no more 4 disc brakes. Rear drum only. Only E spec and V spec got rear air cond. E spec using 175/65/R15 ,V spec most likely using 185/55/R16 tyres.

E spec got push start button. I still dunno wat they will omit on S and S+ variant.

Just back from Paradigm mall,the highest spec is way much different from Thai highest spec,a bit disappointing with it la,from what i get from the SA we are without:

1. Paddle shift
2. Reverse camera
3. Hill Assistant

furthermore, the 7 inch multimedia touch screen is only compatible with Iphone, so it means if you are a android user, the 7 inch multimedia touch screen become useless, no GPS (the GPS needs iphone GPS apps to function), no calling, no entertainment from phone, and no reverse camera...it is just a RADIO!!!
Another thing is also confirmed that all Rear is a drum brake, kinda disappointed, and they didn't mention about auto climate control with touch screen.

Haiz.....stop my booking just now after hearing this...will wait for final confirmation spec release before decide to place my order or not.

I think the info you get is incorrect, hill assistant not include is still acceptable but paddle shift I see no reason they not putting the paddle shift in as they got this feature as standard since over the last few generation already. Even worst come to worst no paddle shift we still getting the cruise control thumbup.gif

I hope I get the wrong info also,that's why have to wait until 13 march launching,and we will know the correct information. By the way,cruise control is nothing to do with paddle shift,it is a different function mah....

I wouldn't book until the specs are finalised and announced. I think even the salesman was confused. I'd wait for the launch. Not that long, about 3 weeks to go.
