Going for a CVT is Now Cheaper Than a Stick with the Honda City 1.5 S

Honda Cars Philippines is about to warp your sense of reality by introducing a new variant of its City sub-compact sedan, and get this: it’s an automatic variant that sells less than its manual transmission counterpart.

Officially named the City 1.5 S CVT, the retail price is P 8,000 less than the 1.5 E M/T (P 820,000). Yet, it continues to offer best-in-class performance with its 1.5-liter SOHC i-VTEC engine making 120 horsepower and 145 Nm of torque. And of course, since it comes with the Earth Dreams CVT, expect it to have excellent fuel efficiency as well.

More than just the impressive powertrain, the City 1.5 S CVT offers one of the best value for money proposition with standard LED DRLs, 15-inch wheels (steelies with full covers), tilt/telescopic steering wheel, all power amenities, and keyless entry. In fact, the only things you lose compared to the next tier 1.5 E are front fog lights, the fancier radio, and speakers (the 1.5 S gets a 1-DIN audio system with Aux/USB inputs and 2 speakers).

The Honda City 1.5 S is now available at all Honda dealerships and comes in the following colors: Lunar Silver, Modern Steel Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, and Taffeta White.
