Spend Time in a New City with Honda

The New Honda City available in Australia in April

Honda’s offering in the light segment just got more interesting, with the new Honda City arriving in showrooms in April.

Australia--March 25, 2014: “The Honda City, available in 55 countries, has sold over 2.2 million units since its introduction,” said Honda Australia Director Mr. Stephen Collins. “The Honda City is a cut above its competition and with new styling, loads of standard features such as Display Audio and reversing camera, it represents excellent value for money.”

Available in two variants, the Honda City features a new Earth Dreams Technology CVT, which is mated to an improved 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engine that delivers 88kW of power. Fuel economy is excellent, with the Honda City sipping just 5.7* litres per 100 kilometres (combined urban/extra urban).

Outside, the new Honda City’s design is sleek and clean and follows Honda’s ‘man maximum, machine minimum’ philosophy. Building on the Honda City’s already roomy interior, engineers have designed the new model with more headroom, more legroom and more shoulder room.

The new Honda City’s boot is even bigger – if that was possible – with an enormous class-leading 536 litre capacity, more than enough room to fit everyone’s gear for those trips away with friends.

The Honda City is the second vehicle in the range to feature Honda’s new state-of-the-art audio system – Display Audio – that can mirror certain functions of a compatible Apple iPhone (iPhone 5 and above) such as Honda satellite navigation and approved third party apps.

It also allows seamless integration for Bluetooth and audio streaming with a smartphone** and can be operated with Siri Eyes Free (compatible Apple iPhones only).

More details about the Honda City’s features and pricing will be revealed closer to its launch.
