Bangkok Live – 2014 Honda City (featuring 6 airbags, touch-screen, VSA)
I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
The 2014 Honda City was shown today at the Bangkok International Motor Show. Just like the City in India, the Thai City measures an identical 4.4 meters in length, which is the same as its predecessor.
Power for the new City in Thailand comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine producing 117 PS at 6,000 rpm and 146 Nm of torque at 4,700 rpm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic gearbox. The engine in the Thai City is capable of running on E85 Ethanol.
In terms of features, the Thai City gets a few added goodies compared to the Indian model. While the Indian City gets dual front airbags, Thailand gets 6 airbags (side and curtain airbags are also included apart from the front driver and passenger side bags). Other features include VSA (Vehicle Stability Assistant), hill start assist, a 7-inch touchscreen system and voice activated controls.
The City in Thailand is priced from 550,000 THB (INR 10.24 lakhs) to 749,000 THB (INR 13.95 lakhs).
