Honda has launched a special edition Honda City Sport in the Philippines that features a more dynamic styling and additional equipment over the regular Honda City.
The Honda City Sport is equipped with a distinctive body kit comprising front, side and rear under spoilers with which it gets a sportier stance. If that’s not enough to recognise it as a sportier car, the ‘Sport Edition’ emblem is included in the list of exterior features. The design of the underbody spoilers looks the same as those offered under the Modulo accessory range.
The 15-inch alloy wheels in the image suggest that the car is based on the most basic, E grade of the regular Honda City. An interior difference between the E grade and the Sport edition is that the latter’s sound system includes two tweeters in addition to the four speakers.
The Honda City Sport has no performance enhancements. The standard 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine powers this special edition model, a naturally aspirated four-cylinder mill that makes 88 kW (120 PS) at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. A continuously variable transmission sends power to the front wheels.
The regular Honda City is available Lunar Silver Metallic, Gold Brown Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic Ruby Red Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl and Taffeta White colours. The Honda City Sport is available in only three of these colours: Modern Steel Metallic, Ruby Red Pearl and Taffeta White.
The Honda City Sport is a limited edition model, but Honda doesn’t say how many units it has commissioned. It costs Php 10,58,000, which converts to INR 13,74,567.34. In addition to the Honda City Sport, Honda has introduced two more limited edition models for its Filipino customers: Honda BR-V Touring and Honda Odyssey EX-V. These models cost Php 10,58,000 (INR 13,75,136.83) and Php 24,28,000 (INR 31,55,796.04) respectively.
