New Exterior Design

2018 Honda City VX+ has a new sporty look.
The New City gets a refreshed look with its redesigned front fascia that sports a low and wide stance, and stately presence. This seamlessly complements a new front and rear design that gives the New City a sharper and more aggressive look. The New City is also now equipped with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), while the top variant VX+ comes with LED headlights and LED fog lights.  Adding to the sporty look of the New City is a new intricate-looking front grille, and exquisite diamond cut aluminium alloy wheels (16-inch for the VX and VX+ variants and 15-inch for the E CVT variant).

Interior Comfort

Comfort and class are top of mind in the 2018 New City.

The New City boasts a rich and sophisticated interior that flaunts a high-tech design, decorative panel, and plush leather seats (for the VX+) that truly highlight the New City’s sporty feel. The new metallic trim around the air-conditioning vent and gearshift, and Gun Metallic panels also welcome the passengers with a more functional beauty. The New City’s gauges and Push Start Button have also been redesigned for a more premium and elegant touch. For added convenience, the VX and VX+ variants are now equipped with Cruise Control that maintains a steady driving speed set by the driver.

The engine is mated to either a 5-speed Manual Transmission (for the base E variant) or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) developed under Earth Dreams Technology that delivers a dynamic and fuel efficient driving performance. The New City also features Honda’s Eco Assist System which consists of the ECON button and eco-coaching ambient meter to promote smart and fuel efficient driving habit.
