Still sulking about Honda Cars Philippines’ (HCPI) decision to discontinue the Jazz in our market? We feel you. We do have some news today, though, that might lift your spirits: HCPI has officially announced that the City Hatch is on its way.
This is something we’ve been talking about for a while now already, but this time it’s official. The launch will be happening on April 20, 2021 at 12:30pm, and you can all watch it live via HCPI’s Facebook page.
That’s all of the details we have for now. After all, we already know what the City Hatch looks like. It might be safe to assume that we’re not getting Thailand’s 1.0-liter turbopetrol. The all-new City arrived with the same 1.5-liter engine, so we’re guessing the City Hatch will get the same powerplant.
We’ve no idea about the pricing, so we’ll have to wait a bit more for that. For now, while we don’t have any concrete information yet, you can refer to our recent Jazz-City Hatch comparo if you want to read more on all this. While you’re at it, share your two cents in the comments section as well. What are your thoughts on this new hatchback’s upcoming arrival?
