In India they seem to have replaced the Civic with premium variants of this City.

If got 6 airbags, VSC, push start....etc, all they have to do is price it under RM100k and it should sell well.

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

What was wrong with the dry clutch? hmm.gif

OMG, Rear Drum Brakes, just like Nissan.

Hope all you Honda Fans will NOT BUY this new City.

Nissan has taken all their loyal fans as fools, now its Honda turn.

90% of B-seg drivers don't drive hard enough to tell the difference between rear drums or rear discs anyway.

Most are after the looks of rear discs only because rear discs = race car.

QUOTE(ZeroSP @ Mar 12 2014, 11:20 AM)
It is like all the while since iDSI City and some minor hybrid models, all Honda cars fitted with rear disc.

So it is like, since they are going to fight that VIOS or BIOS or VIUS whatever, they already doing so much on the spec list with a good pricing, why let go of something like the rear disc?

And we all know that Toyota salesman having easy job already by how they con people to buy Vios (no need con la actually, people will buy without asking technical shit, janji Toyota), now suddenly Toyota salesman become so technical-savvy by telling people "you see, City fitted with drum even on highest spec, our Vios is rear disc".

Eh, no joke... My friend bought a Vios G instead of TRD (which he wanted), just because salesman say TRD suspension is too hard too racy for normal use (I am like @@).

True. marketing-wise it doesn't bode well for the City to have rear drums.

i think so if u refer to the manual book.

i am watching the road, like i said b4, speeding in heavy rain i dont have a gut to see other thing inside my car.

but seriously i can feel the VSA in action, it not bracking all tyres in the same time.

dunno why I couldn't attach picture today...wait I upload at office tomorrow

195/50/16 just nice balance between looks and comfort. this size got limited choices though, only Hankook and Continental. I took Hankook Optimo series...270/piece
*
There are other brands such as Falken, Nexen, Neuton, Toyo etc.

If you rims are wide enough you can go for 205/50/16

tyre shop guy also don't recommend going for 205 for City...it will eat into your fuel economy.

205 for 16 inchers have a wider (and possibly cheaper) choices of tires. Like you already realize, 195/xx/16 tires are rare.

But beware of tire scrubbing issue, though.

your choice, just FYI smile.gif

The L15A7 iVTEC has the variable lift IINM, the "real" VTEC.

But due to the nature of CVT (and the advancement of technology), there is no more "prraaannnnggggg" VTEC KICK IN YO!! feel anymore. The transition should be smooth, but still noticable.
