The updated Honda City is now available in the Philippines. We've already reported the official Philippine variants and prices, so let's have a look at what's new with the Japanese carmaker's refreshed subcompact sedan offering.
The first thing to strike you will be the vehicle's redesigned front fascia which gives off a more aggressive demeanor. There's a new front-grille as well as new LED daytime running lights up front. The top-spec Honda City gets both LED headlights and foglights, by the way. Also prominent are the sedan's new diamond cut aluminum wheels which features a sportier look than those found on the previous model. You'll have a choice between 16- or 15-inch wheels depending on what variant you go with.
Overall, the City's updated looks impress, and it's still one of the best-looking vehicles in its segment.
Inside, the cabin features a new metallic trim around the A/C vents and gearshift, which Honda says provides the interior with a more "functional beauty." There are new gauges, as well as a new push/start button which pulses prior to ignition. Buyers of the City's E CVT, VX and VX+ variants will also get a new 7-inch touchscreen equipped with navigation, voice command, and a multi-view reverse camera. Extra convenience includes cruise control and power folding side mirrors, depending on your variant.
Again, the City still runs on the same 1.5-liter gasoline engine capable of 117hp and 145Nm. You can get a closer look at the new City in the photos below. Is the car's refresh substantial enough for you?
