Right after teasing us with some pictures last month, Honda finally took the wraps off the updated City in Thailand. The B-segment sedan has received a few notable nip-and-tuck updates, with the most prominent change being its fascia.
New to the fourth-generation City is a redesigned front and rear bumper, new alloy wheels, as well as a segment-first full LED headlamps. Even the fog lamps are LEDs, just like the Civic! There’s also a mildly restyled chrome grille with LED DRLs offered as standard across all variants in Thailand. The cabin now gets gunmetal accents for the centre console and seats.
Mechanically, the City retains the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder i-VTEC engine that produces 117 hp and 146 Nm of torque. Transmission choices include a standard five-speed manual or the seven-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The 2017 Honda City is available in six variants, with pricing starting from 550,000 Baht (approximately RM69,360.00) to 751,000 Baht (approximately RM94,709.00). The Malaysian launch for the Honda City facelift is really just around the corner, so watch this space for future updates!
