The Honda City is back – with a boot

The Honda City is back – with a boot

Thirteen years after it last rolled its way onto NZ streets, the Honda City is back — and it’s a small sedan.

“The Honda City is a sedan with cachet, designed for modern, urban drivers who want it all — all in the convenience of a smaller sedan. Since its debut in 1996, the City sedan has sold over one million units in 39 countries and when you look at the impressive features and affordable price-tag of this all-new Honda City it’s easy to see why,” says Honda New Zealand Managing Director Graeme Seymour.

Two models are available (the City S and more featured City E) and both boast a 1.5-litre SOHC i-VTEC engine with an output of 88kW and 145Nm. With a fuel economy of 6.3L/100km (in the manual, 6.6 Auto) it will be cheap to run and with CO2 emissions of only 148g/km, it has environmental cred also.

Apparently the new City delivers more power, space and fuel efficiency than all previous model Civic’s, with the exception of the latest generation. It can accommodate five adults comfortably and boasts an impressive 506 litre boot capacity.

The City S comes equipped with tilt adjustable steering, power windows and mirrors, alarm and central locking and an iPod/MP3 ready single in-dash CD stereo with MP3 player compatibility. Safety equipment as standard includes — ABS brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist, dual front, side and curtain airbags and front seatbelt pre-tensioners.

Meanwhile the City E adds telescopic steering, 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome door handles, fog lights, sports trim and a leather steering wheel and shift knob. The City E is available with the 5-speed automatic transmission from the Civic, while the City S is available in both 5 speed auto or 5 speed manual.

“Consumers looking for all the benefits a small car delivers — whether that be affordability, driving ease, economy at the pump or environmental responsibility — now have a fantastic sedan option packed full of features and in tune with the needs of a modern driver,” says Seymour.

Pricing (plus on road costs):

City S $26,900
City S Auto $29,500
City W $31,900

The City is available in QuickSilver, Atomic Gold, Obsidian Black, Taffeta White and Habenaro Chili Red, all with a black interior featuring silver trim.
