The 2017 6th generation Honda City facelift is available for sale in Thailand starting today. It comes in five grades: S, V, V+, SV, and SV+, and prices stay unchanged – 550,000 baht to 751,000 baht.
The exterior of the 2017 Honda City receives new LED headlamps with bolder LED DRLs, redesigned chrome grille that runs into the lights, a new bumper design with 3-part intake and fog lamps, new 16-inch alloy rims and a re-profiled rear bumper. Added freshness to the exterior comes courtesy of the Cosmic Blue color option, sourced from the new Civic.
The 2017 Honda City’s interior is virtually indistinguishable from the outgoing car; the Thai model comes with an all-black layout with gun metal trim on the dashboard, gloss black garnish on the center console and bright silver accents. Key features include speed-sensing auto door lock, tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, cruise control, 60:40 split folding rear seats, LED cabin lights, a 6.8-inch touch-screen audio system and a new reverse parking camera.
Under the hood of the 2017 Honda City is the same 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine delivering 117 hp at 6,600 rpm and 146 Nm at 4,600 rpm. It retains its 5-speed manual gearbox for the base S grade, whereas the rest of the variants sport an EarthDreams CVT.
