There’s never been a better time to consider the all-new Honda City; here are five excellent reasons why.
When you’re shopping for a car in Singapore, you know that there are some essential boxes a vehicle needs to tick, before you’d even consider going down to the showroom.
In this day and age, it’s no longer about, ABS, airbags and power windows (which ALL cars have), but more about the luxury features that make our daily commute more enjoyable.
We’re happy to share that Honda’s new City ticks all those boxes, and more! Here are some compelling characteristics that make the City the perfect sedan for our urban jungle.
Let’s start with the way the new City looks. Well-proportioned and chiselled with strong, muscular lines, the new model has improved by leaps and bounds in the design department.
The sleek ‘wing-face’ that is found on the Civic and Accord makes its way to the City as well, and the distinctive front appearance with new LED headlamps is unmistakable on the road. At the rear, the new taillights sport a modern design and feature a wrap-around design with LED technology.
It’s packed with tech
Although it is an entry-level sedan, the City is anything but basic. A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes as standard and is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to access maps, music and other apps with ease.
You can even receive calls with the Bluetooth handsfree system that’s integrated into the multi-function steering wheel.
But technology is pointless unless it really helps with you in your daily life – that’s where the City scores even more points. It’s even got a remote start engine feature.
Yes, you read that correctly. This convenience feature isn’t even found on many luxury car brands! Do you need to get into your car after it’s been ‘baking’ in the hot sun? Simply turn the ignition on from the key fob and begin to cool the interior before you step in.
Another feature found only in larger class cars is Cruise Control. This makes highway driving all the more relaxing, and further enhances the already frugal fuel consumption that the City boasts.
Speaking of driving, the new 1.5 in-line 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine with Earth Dreams™ technology packs a punchy 121 PS and 145 Nm of torque to make piloting the new City a cinch.
The CVT gearbox is silky smooth and will cater to any driving style. Need to overtake quickly on the roads? Simply tap on the paddle shifters, and the ‘gears’ will downshift to give you some added punch to power you through.
Of the utmost importance, even more than technology and power, is knowing that you are always safe in a well-built car. The new Honda City passes this area with flying colours with a full 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating. This safety is further emphasised with Honda’s highly-rated G-control safety feature that disperses G-forces away from occupants in the event of a collision.
With the need to fulfil so much, new cars genuinely need to make sure that they offer a full suite of features to a new generation of buyers. The Honda City does just that and more. Coupled with the practicality of class-leading cargo space and all the highlighted cool features, it’s no wonder the new City is the practical choice for our urban city!
