For generations, what makes a Honda special is how it outlives and adapts to each succeeding generation.

There is a Honda for everyone and for every stage in life.


One such model is the Honda City. Since it arrived in the Philippines, it has been one of the most sought-after sedans. It as grown as the market has grown, and today, continues to be a powerful force of modern design and performance.

The Honda City is designed for the contemporary and ambitious, the kind of persona that is practical in his choices and refined in taste. Developed under the concept of the “Ambitious Sedan,” the City fits snugly as a puzzle piece.

It has upgraded its interior features with a spacious cabin that is finished with soft pads, polished textures, and premium accents to offer a high-class sedan feel for both driver and passenger.



The improvement in features extend to its connectivity, a must for every modern-day driver and car owner. Apart from the standard one-push start system, the Honda City is equipped with an 8-inch advanced touchscreen infotainment display that has built-in Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and WebLink, for seamless hands-free device access. It is likewise made with the audiophile in mind, with all variants having a standard 4-speaker system, and the RS variant an 8-speaker set-up.

Complementing all these feature upgrades is what makes the Honda City the most powerful in its class—a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC engine that provides 121 PS at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm of torque at 4,300 rpm. The built-in Honda Eco Assist System and CVT transmission balances this power with fuel economy—achieving up to 25.17 km/L. It is clearly built to satiate the rush that one would get from a thrilling drive.


The reliability of a Honda, however, is more than skin-deep and is rooted in its performance and ability to outlast. Top of mind will always be the people, and that is why unparalleled safety is a priority. The all-new Honda City is recognized with the ASEAN NCAP Excellent Award for its consistent 5-star rating throughout its third, fourth, and fifth generations, which includes the current model. Standard to the Honda City are advanced safety features, such as Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and Power Door Locks with Speed-Sensing Auto Lock, among others.

All that and more is what makes the Honda City a partner that you can count on for years to come. You see, a car is not simply a car when it can grow with you and take you through life’s different stages. As with most things that get better with age, so does the City. It is designed to see you through the most successful times and endure the most trying days, ticking all the boxes every step of the way.
