2009 Honda City launched in Asia

2009 Honda City launched in Asia

We’ve pretty much revealed the 2009 Honda City completely already, but we might as well report on the official launch of the new model in Thailand, for sale in neighbouring countries such as India, Malaysia and China.

The new City features a new nose similar to Honda’s hydrogen-powered city car, while the rest of the design is unlike any other Honda.

Powered by a 120 hp 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine, it comes with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic, ditching the previous model’s CVT transmission that had 7 simulated speeds.

The cabin is probably all hard plastics again, but it all looks decent at least. Cabin space has improved over the previous model, and can now better fit tall adults in the back.

Except the 2009 Honda City to hit Dubai and GCC roads in the first few months of 2008, at a starting price well above Dhs 45,000, if not more. Our market will probably get the Thailand-built version.

For updated information, check out the Honda City car buyer guide.

What do you think?



  1. new city looks much better than the previous ugly looking city…good they have replaced the CVT with a 5 Speed auto….it should be sellin quite good in asian markets especially India though it doesnt offer a diesal engine….

  2. nice car, but rear part suxx, i dont know why they fit the same Steering of Honda civic in this car.. anyways… nice one

  3. O thank God!!! after the pilot, I thought Honda took the wrong highway exit, but it seems they’re on the right road now. City looks great!!!

  4. thr front of this car looks really nice..Good step from all their bland designs..

  5. honda appears nice in good compare to the previous model although its better if you improve the front nose.The design of the headlights and the front grill is not good.It is better if you improve it in the next future year model.

  6. Honda city from thailand?? Please, please,bring in the 2009 US honda FIT! Not the jazz from thailand…

    I alreadey hv Honda City-2007 model but IM interested to buy this new model

  25. I am Faizan it is a good looking and more comfortable car than the last model. And i hope it become more populor than last model.

  26. Honda has seriously taken a wrong exit. After the launch of ugly pilot, they have now launched the city which has quite an attrative front looks, but again dull and cheap rear looks. I guess honda has decided that from now on they are going to give a weird look to every car they design.

  27. Fahad its not only Honda that has taken this decission. If you look at almost every BIG and respected car company, their designs have gone off-key and I am trying to accept it as the latest fashion in car designing and try to get to like these designs cuz I feel in the near future many cars will have these crappy designs and maybe it will meet the tastes of the next generation of humans… 😕 🙄

  52. : 😈 very Bad Car.

  53. cool…this car is way much better than earlier model, hey check out more abt this new honda city at ww.highway.pk

  54. i think the second model of city was excellent as compare to 1st 3rd n second last model ,they were just ok with average looks.
    but the fuel consumption of city is really very good , this is the only reason city captured the high market share.
    the latest of model of city is really very good but frm the back they give some things similar to bmw , guess what? offcoure rear lights n body is similar to liana frm the back.but overall i like this car because of luxurious appereance !
