[VIDEO] Honda City Facelift launched in Thailand image

Thailand seems to be something like a Mecca, attracting major automakers like honey attracts flies, and after Chevrolet will produce its Colorado model locally, along with the Nissan Navarra and other models, Honda decided to launch the facelifted version of the City.

The “new” City sedan comes with slight changes to the grille’s design, with bigger gaps in the side sections, along with a new front bumper, new tail lamps, lower bumper incorporating a diffuser style painted in black with reflectors on the side and new seven double-spoke design wheels.

The interior is practically the same, except for the dials, which are now blue accented instead of orange and the Japanese engineers decided to place an ECO indicator that will light up when the driver is light footed.

The facelifted Honda City’s engine remains unchanged, the sedan being powered by the same 1.5 liter i-VTEC unit, which is delivering 118 PS at 6.600 rpm and 146 Nm of torque at 4.800 rpm.

The Japanese automaker says that the facelifted version of the City will be available in three trim levels, the S, the V and the SV, and it will be priced between 559.000 baht and 704.000 baht in Thailand.
