Since late September, Honda cars Philippines Inc. has announced that it will soon launch another exciting model. The model was announced on its social media page HCIP’s official Facebook page on October 22, HCPI said on their official YouTube page.
However, we know from the grapevine that the car manufacturer will introduce the 2020 Honda City, which is now on sale in Thailand. Although we haven’t seen the full specifications of the upcoming models, let’s take a look at the details of the new Honda City 2020 in Thailand.
In these countries, Honda City has a 1-liter DOHC three-cylinder 12 valve i-VTEC engine, which is equipped with a turbocharger, which can provide 120 horsepower and 173 nm of torque, thus reducing the number of other engine models offered by older generation City. This matches a CVT automatic transmission, abandoning the manual transmission in the City.
Toyota Vios, Kia Rio Tinto, Suzuki Ciaz and other ultra-small cars can also be controlled through seven transmissions.
On the exterior, it has a redesigned front fascia, which is very visible on the upper lip of the grille and headlights, as well as the taillights, which have been reformed and now sport sharper lines. The black interior exudes a certain degree of elegance with the instrument illuminating the red line.
The above version of Honda City has an 8-inch infotainment system that supports Apple Carplay, and Google maps is ready.
One of the features that the Philippine market is sure to welcome will be Honda connectivity “connecting cars and work through smartphone apps.” The latest version of Honda City offers four variants in Thailand, the most advanced of which is the RS.
In addition, we hope that Honda will not give up the safety features provided by its Thai counterparts, such as emergency stop signal and six airbags (double front, intelligent front and curtain airbags, which can reduce sudden impact).
So far, however, all this has been wishful thinking. As a result, we will try our best to keep our eyes and ears up to date on any upcoming models.
Honda cars Philippines will hold a virtual launch. Two new models will appear. The invitation didn’t show too much, but we did see two cars and they were on the road here, and we had some speculation. We have a feeling that this is a brand-new City, together with the updated CR-V, will soon enter our market.
