Thailand – New Honda City launched


Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of I love teamwork and talking about cars.

The new Honda City has been launched in its second important market, Thailand. Honda Automobile Thailand Co., has launched the sedan with a single petrol engine option.

Powering the City for Thailand is the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine as the Indian model. However, the Thai City’s engine is optimised to run on E85 fuel (ethanol blended fuel) as well.
