The City is Japanese subcompact car stalwart Honda's entry in the segment. Now on its fifth generation, the new model comes with a sleeker exterior design along with a revamped interior and an updated in-cabin features. From the looks of it, this vehicle looks well suited to go up against its rivals in the subcompact sedan segment such as the Toyota Vios and Kia Soluto.

The exterior of the latest release looks sleeker and sportier as compared to the outgoing model. Upfront, the top-spec RS variant comes with full LED headlights, LED fog lamps, a more prominent fog light garnish, a glossy black mesh grille, and a sporty bumper. On the other hand, the non-RS City variants also come with a striking facia but it doesn’t have fog lamps. Also, non-RS trims are integrated with halogen projector headlamps.

Honda Philippines is offering the City on four variants: RS CVT, V CVT, S CVT, and S MT. All variants come with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder i-VTEC gasoline engine. The said power unit generates 119 hp and 145 Nm of torque. In addition, all variants come with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) except for the entry-level S variant that uses a six-speed manual gearbox instead.

Launch

Honda Cars Philippines Inc. (HCPI) launched the fifth-generation City on October 22, 2020. It debuted alongside the facelifted Honda CR-V. The new version comes with a sleeker exterior design along with a revamped interior and an updated in-cabin features which can help it further elevate its game against its competitors.

There are four variants offered by the Japanese carmaker for the subcompact sedan, namely the base S MT, S CVT, V CVT, and the top-of-the-line RS CVT. The top-ranging RS variant comes with exclusive and sportier body kits that enhance the overall look of the model. Regardless of the variant, Honda's B-segment sedan uses a 1.5-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine which provides good fuel efficiency and the right amount of power in relation to its segment.
