Founded in 1948, Honda has grown to be a leading global car manufacturer that offers a great catalog of hatchbacks, sedans, multi-purpose vehicles (MPV), and sport utility vehicles (SUV). Honda cars are popular in Malaysia as they are known for their reliable, feature-packed, and fuel-efficient vehicles.
Honda cars are mainly made in Japan and exported to other countries worldwide. In Malaysia, Honda opened their own facility to assemble Completely Knocked Down (CKD) cars in Pegoh, Melaka.
According to the Consumer’s Report Survey, Honda was ranked as the fifth most reliable brand for the year 2021, while the Honda HR-V was ranked the fifth most reliable car.
All Honda cars come with a free five-year, unlimited mileage warranty package. Maintenance costs incurred after the warranty period range roughly between RM268* and RM980*.
*Estimates are based on service repairs without major engine or gearbox overhauls.
The road tax for a Honda depends on the engine displacement in cubic centimeters (cc). The road tax for a Honda City 1.5 (1497cc) is RM90, while the fee for a Honda HR-V 1.8 (1799cc) costs around RM 280.
Honda vehicles depreciate by 34 percent on average in the first three years after purchase. However, the five-year depreciation rate is predicted to be between 43 and 49 percent of their original price.
Honda Authorised Service Centres are equipped with the tools, expertise, and parts that are tailored for your Honda model. You can find more information about the Honda aftersales service here.
Honda’s After Sales offers parts from batteries to engine oils and spark plugs.
The insurance rate is calculated based on the market price of your car, coverage type, location, engine capacity, and your No Claims Discount (NCD). For example, a used Honda City 1.5 (1497cc) in Peninsular Malaysia with zero percent NCD costs roughly RM1,319 yearly, compared to a brand new Honda City 1.5 which costs RM2,208.
*Based on estimations of used and new car prices.
According to the average resale value of Honda cars in 2022, a five-year-old Honda City recorded an average resale value of between 61 and 74 percent of its original. On the other hand, a five-year-old Honda Civic can fetch a resale value of between 70 and 81 percent.
Safety features in Honda cars include Honda Sensing, which is a suite of advanced driver assistance and collision avoidance technologies that are designed to keep the driver alert while driving and prevent accidents.
Honda’s best engine can be found in the Honda Civic Type R which features the 2.0L VTEC 4 cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 306 hp (228kW) and reaches 7,000 rpm with an output of 153 hp/L.
A Variable Timing and Lift Electronically Controlled (VTEC) system, is a system that uses two different camshaft profiles. One camshaft profile is for normal engine operations (at low rpm), which provides good torque and excellent performance, while the other camshaft profile is for high-performance engine operation (at high rpm) which has a greater lift and longer duration. This system is usually set to a specific rpm (4,500) and greatly increases horsepower.
The Intelligent Variable Timing and Lift Electronically Controlled (i-VTEC) system is a more advanced system that replaced VTEC in 2000. It adds additional controls for the intake valves at low and medium throttle levels to improve low-end and partial throttle response. Therefore, the i-VTEC system provides overall better performance at all engine operation levels.
