Philippines Live – Honda City Mugen
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The Honda City Mugen prototype which made its global debut earlier this year in Philippines surfaces again, this time at the Philippines International Motor Show 2014 (CAMPI 2014).
Honda’s performance division has tweaked the car’s exterior to make it look more dynamic. The sedan is finished in the Taffetta White exterior color.
The front fascia receives a black Mugen grille and a bumper with a sharp edged skirt. The sides of the car also feature skirts in addition to 17-inch Mugen alloy wheels, Mugen decals on the doors and stripes on the C-pillar.
The rear of the Mugen City can be identified by means of an integrated spoiler and an aggressive diffuser. Faux carbon fibre accents to the ORVM housings round off the changes.
The Mugen treatment for the interior, powertrain, brakes and suspension would be revealed at a later stage. As of now, the car continues to be powered by the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine that generates 120 PS and 145 Nm of torque. The transmission is a 5-speed MT or a CVT.
The pimped up City is expected to go on sale first in Philippines sometime this year.
