A Marvelous Bloggers Day Out With The All New Honda City

Test-driving, Standup-paddling, Fly-boarding (which I'm not brilliant at, watch it here) and all the laughter and meals we had in between. This post is mainly photographs, boasting an exciting day ahead! I had a blast!

The All-New 4th Generation Honda City.
Good Morning Sunshines! Super psyched for a fantastic day ahead! I got up early and arrived at the designated meet-up point, at a little pass 9am. Talk about early Saturday mornings!
Breakfast at Rail Canteen @ Sunway Nexis.
Kickstarting today's City Bloggers Drive, a short presentation and test drive briefing by the Honda representative.
Followed by an interactive Car Walkabout by the Honda Professionals.

Hold it! Let me now tell you a bit about the All-New City.

The City is Honda Malaysia's best selling sedan in its class with over 2.2 million customers in 55 countries to date, alongside a whooping 145,000 units in Malaysian roads alone. I can definitely attest to the figures, my mum drives a Honda City too!

The All-New City are available in 5 colors: Modern steel metallic, Alabaster silver metallic, Taffeta white, Crystal black pearl and a new attractive color of Brilliant sporty blue metallic
And comes in 4 variants: City S, City S+, City E and City V.
Powered by the improved 1.5L SOHC i-VTEC engine (Max power at 120PS @ 6,600 rpm and Max torque at 145Nm @ 4,600 rpm) coupled with the advanced Continous Variable Transmission (CVT).
This is the premium interior of the City V, the highest-spec within the All-New City variant. It includes Cruise Control, Multi Information Combination Meter, Rear Ventilation Air Conditioning, 3 Power Sockets and Steering Wheel Voice Recognition Control. All variant comes with Advanced Steering Wheel Hands Free Telephone Control, 8 Cup Holders and Smart Storage Compartments.
Class leading safety features of 6 Airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist (which I will be demo-ing shortly), Hill Start Assist, Emergency Stop Signal and ISOFIX.
Sleek Touchscreen 7" Display Audio with MirrorLink function8 Speakers and 2 USB Jacks. You can now have a karaoke session inside the car! Right below that, the innovative Touch Panel Auto Air Conditioning.
No need for a key! Lightly press the handle for Smart Entry. 
Push Start Button for easy ignition.
ECON mode improves fuel efficiency.
And my favorite photograph of the day - showcasing the All-New City's massive 536 litre boot space, which can fit all 3 of us inside!

After all of that, fasten your seatbelts please! Here we come! Are you ready?

We convoyed to the first destination - Putrajaya Marina Complex. I couldn't stop toying with their walkie-talkie, I went, "Roger. Car 2. Roger." 
There were 8 of us and we were split into 3 teams, all in our very own designated All-New City.
FishShini and me took turns driving the Silver Honda City E.
Selfless selfie moments at the backseat.
Snacks stashed in the car!
When we arrived at Putrajaya, the sun was brimming, perfect for water activities!
Now, I was meant to do what he's doing but failed miserably - you will soon see.
My water adventure begins: Fly Boarding. But before that, "Fish, help me strap on my life jacket. As tight as possible please!" I can't swim.
Hair in our faces.
The Fly Board weights about 9KG.
I have always wanted to try Fly Boarding. Imagine my enthusiasm! I couldn't wait to be dunked but was nervous at the same time!
I went as high as an embarassing 10cm off the waters, before plunging uncontrollably, though in style - good shot Mr. Photographer. It wasn't easy, at all. I'm sure you wouldn't want to miss watching my blooper below.
Soaked but still in the mood for pictures with Bok and Fish.
Jess attempted the Standup Paddling.
After all the adrenaline rush, I showered, freshend up and chilled with Jess and Miriam.
Rockin' on the Electric Scooter.
Group picture with the rest of the bloggers - photobombed by the Fly Board Professional.
Shini drove us to our next stop, for lunch! Lets go eat!
Lunch at Dengkil Seafood Restaurant @ Selangor.
We enjoyed our seafood feast!
After a fulfilling meal, we drove to Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) for Driving Exercises.
I take my driving very seriously - don't worry I didn't do anything dangerous. With a professional driving instructor by my side, I got to test out the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) function. The vehicle had amazing traction control, even during dramatic swerves and skids.
The Anti-lock Bracking System (ABS) too had great reflex when I pumped on the emergency brakes. It was a thrill ride all the way!
Largest boot space in its class? Lets put it to the test. The tallest one squeezed in first - that would be me.
Then Shini.
Then Fish.
All 3 of us. Test Pass!
After our joy ride, we headed back to Rail Canteen, where we had tea. There was a prize giving ceremony after that, awarding the top team with the best photo. My team came in third. Ending our day long adventure, no doubt we were all exhausted but I'm sure everyone felt contented. More importantly, we had heaps of fun!

The All-New City retails at RM73,007 with either the Premium Package (RM1,503.80) or the Modulo Package (RM3,508.30), combining stylish and premium exterior, smooth drivability, comfort and spaciousness with class leading safety features. 

Honda Malaysia also offers 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage and service interval at 10,000km.
