Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) releases a new variant of its ever-popular subcompact, the City. Due to the resurgence of interest in small, fuel-efficient, and cost-effective cars with automatic transmissions, HCPI responds with its most affordable subcompact sedan to date.
Coming in at a price of P820,000, the 1.5 S CVT variant undercuts the 1.5 E MT by P8,000, which makes it an attractive option for those looking for an entry-level offering in the City range. The unit comes with the same 1.5L engine that is capable of 118 hp and 145 Nm of torque mated to the brand’s Earth Dreams CVT which allows for efficient performance. You also get the same 15-inch steel wheels that the E MT variant has, and a set of hubcaps to go with it.
Being a base model and to reach the model’s very attractive price point, Honda stripped the City of some of its features. The difference between the S CVT and E MT model is the 1-DIN infotainment system that’s installed in place of the 2-DIN advanced unit. Also reduced is the number of speakers that the head unit outputs to. Instead of the standard 4, the S variant only features 2 speakers located in the front of the cabin.
On the exterior. The City is more or less the same, with the only difference being the black plastic door handles which are body-colored on the E variant. Otherwise, much of everything is the same on this model, from the chrome grille to the hexagonal halogen reflector headlamps. Everything that made the City such a best-seller for Honda is retained, with a more affordable CVT being the headlining feature of this variant.
