This one is for torque hungry folks lah.  More than Camry don't play paly.

While that torque figure looks impressive on paper, it takes 9.9 seconds to go from 0-100km/h.

9.9 already beat many C, D, crossovers....Some more at that price lor

Pricewise, maybe. But the 2013 CRZ, sporting a similar setup, albeit with less torque, and being a much older hybrid system, goes from 0-100 in 9 seconds iirc. You'd expect the City Hybrid being faster than 9.9 seconds considering it's Hybrid system is much more advanced than the CRZ, plus the torque figures are fairly impressive on the spec sheet.

Wonder why it doesn't translate to real world performance.

All here talk about 0-100 lah, torque lah (yes its important), all related to acceleration to "tapao this car, that car".

Don't know why Honda empathise on super acceleration.
A Hybrid is meant to save fuel - Something Malaysians like to talk. FC FC FC all day.

I have nothing against Hybrids - But Hybrids should not be treated like a drag car on a drag strip.

Can't blame them really.

Especially with the "RS" in it's name, that sporty looking bodykit, that 235nm of torque, and let's not forget that promo video of it overtaking a camry.

While I agree that it's most likely designed for efficiency over performance, It's fair and reasonable for the car buying public to have at least some expectations of it being a little quicker or at least on par with something like, say the CRZ. laugh.gif

anyway, this Honda City RS IMMD will fail because of price.

106k means 110k on the road, which is the same price as Proton X70 Executive and Proton X50 Flagship. Proton X50 flagship offers more except hybrid

not to mentioned it overlap with Honda Civic 1.8 at 112k on the road which offers more comfort and space, albeit no honda sensing

Given the price range, the X50 is the best in terms of value, X70 in terms of space, civic in terms of reliability track record.

The City is really neither here nor there.

So, do we have a confirmation that the new HRV will be launched here?
