So what's new with Honda's subcompact sedan? For one, all the variants will feature LED daytime running lights as standard. It's also got LED headlights and foglamps, a new and cleaner-looking chrome grille, new front and rear bumpers, and sportier alloy wheels.
Inside, the new City has a gunmetal-accented dashboard and new sporty-looking seats. The LED additions continue with the interior lights. It also features a touchscreen infotainment system that's both Android and iOS compatible (like the Civic). Other amenities include push-start ignition and Honda's Smart Key system.
Powering the new car is a 1.5-liter SOHC i-VTEC engine that puts out 117hp and 146Nm, which are similar figures to our current model. The engine is mated to either a seven-speed CVT that can be operated via paddle shifters, or a manual transmission for the base variant. Honda claims that the new City can do 17.9km/L, and 18.2km/L on a stick shift. We're assuming, though, that those numbers weren't tested along roads like EDSA.
Safety features on-board include six airbags, vehicle stability assist, hill-start assist, emergency stop signal, and a rearview camera. Color options are: Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Taffeta White, White Orchid Pearl, and a new Cosmic Blue Metallic that comes with an all-black passenger cabin.
No word yet on what kind of facelift we'll be seeing on our shores. If we had to guess, we'd say that we won't have to wait long. Hello, Honda Cars Philippines....
