Leaked brochure scans reveal that the 2017 Honda Shuttle (Honda City Wagon) will get additional safety equipment and added features. The car is expected to go on sale in the coming months.

Other features on offer on the 2017 Honda Shuttle include LED fog lights, updated ETC onboard equipment, new cup holder, Plasmacluster technology equipped dual zone automatic climate control and heated front seats.
The Shuttle is based on the same platform as the new City.
