Ever since the 1990s, the Honda Civic was one of those cars that people liked to dress up with mods. This meant body kits, and possibly even big ol’ wings. Sure it was a car designed for optimal daily driving, but the City just had this charm to it that begged to be modified. The same is of course true with the new 2021 Honda City that was released locally this year.
The fifth-generation City is arguably the best-looking version yet. It’s stylish, sporty, and sleek. However, Honda Cars Philippines wants to make the 2021 City even more good looking as it released a Modulo package for its subcompact sedan.

The aforementioned Modulo kit includes a front under spoiler and a rear under spoiler. The front one is tied to the fog-light housing and the rear goes seamlessly just behind the rear wheel.
On the side, the new Honda City gets a Modulo side skirt, as well as window visors. The window visors, apart from enhancing the look of the new City, also protects the interior of the car whenever you choose to slightly open your windows when it’s raining.
And lastly, there’s also an available trunk-mounted spoiler that comes with its own brake light. From the looks of it, the rear spoiler will not compromise driver visibility due to its low and sleek profile.

Overall, the Modulo kit provides an even sportier look to the 2021 Honda City. However, the Modulo kits are pure cosmetic upgrades for the 2021 City. But, it sure gives the new City extra style points. Of note, the said Modulo accessories can be fitted to all variants of the 2021 City including the RS trim.
If you’re liking the Modulo kit for the 2021 City, then you’ll have to contact the nearest Honda dealership for the price for each piece and for the price of installing them.

As for the 2021 Honda City itself, prices starts from Php 838,000 for the entry-level City S 1.5 MT, while the top-of-the-line City RS 1.5 CVT sits at Php 1,048,000. Take note that those are introductory prices, which will be available until December 31, 2020.
