Honda launched the new-generation Honda City in Thailand and many of them have already started modifying it too. There are number of aftermarket accessories and body kits available for the fifth generation Honda City and we have featured some of them on our website in the past. Here we have pictures of two new body kits that are now available for the new Honda City sedan. One of them is inspired by the Honda NSX sportscar and the other one is a Civic Type R Kit. The kit has been revealed by Thailand based NKS design.
The Honda City with the Type-R body kit looks ravishing, and a lot like its elder sibling – the Civic sedan. On the City with the Type-R kit, the front bumper has been replaced with a unit that looks similar to the one seen in the hot hatch.
It has faux air vents around the fog lamp area and also gets a lip spoiler and side skirt in a contrasting colour. The rear bumper also looks like a replica from the Civic with black garnish around reflector area and triple chrome exhaust tips. This kit also gets a spoiler installed on top of the boot.

Coming to the NSX kit, it is clear that the kit is heavily inspired by the Honda NSX sportscar. The LED headlights, chrome grille all remain the same as that of City but, the bumper has been heavily revised. The Front bumper is designed in a way that it resembles a lot with original NSX. There is an air dam towards the bottom of the bumper and the fog lamp area is now occupied by faux air vents. The kit also includes a lip spoiler at the front and side skirts too. At the rear, inspiration from NSX continues in the form of a trapezoidal shaped exhaust and diffuser. The Honda City also gets a GT spoiler installed on the boot as part of the kit.
In India, Honda City will get a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5 litre diesel engine and both the engines are likely to get a manual as well as a CVT gearbox option. The car will compete with the likes of the Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna in India’s C-Segment sedan category. Internationally, the all-new 5th generation Honda City is available with a 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine in RS variant which is unlikely to be launched in India.
