Honda launched their latest generation, City sedan in the international market a few months ago. In comparison to the current model, the new generation looks entirely different and sporty. it got initially launched in Thailand and people have already started buying it. The City is one of those good looking sedan which buyers often modify to their preference to make it more appealing. People have already started modifying the new-generation City and here we have a couple of such City sedan that are fitted with aftermarket alloys wheels.
The modifications or the aftermarket alloys wheels are fitted on RS variant of City, which is sportier than the normal ones. Visually the normal version and the RS variant both look similar to each other except for couple of differences. Starting from the front, normal City gets a fat chrome grille that is becoming common in many modern day Honda cars. The RS variant does not get a chrome nose instead, the strip is completely given a gloss black finish with Honda logo in the middle.
Other changes include a blacked out roof, black ORVMs and a black boot lip for a sportier appeal. Compared to the normal City, RS variant gets no inserts at all. Coming to the cars in this article, they get no other modifications except for the aftermarket alloys. First is the red car, it gets a golden or bronze colour 8-spoke alloy wheels with low profile tyres. The other example is a blue colour RS varaint with similar kind of sporty alloys in silver finish with a chrome lip on the outside. Even a subtle change like a set of new alloy wheels help change the stance or look of a vehicle. Same thing happened here also. These aftermarket alloys add up to the character of the City sedan and make it look sportier than before.
In Thailand City is available in 4 variants – S, V, SV and RS. It is not known if we would be getting the 1.0L turbo petrol variant here in Indian market. The Indian version of the Honda City is likely to continue with the 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine options. A mild hybrid is expected to be added to the petrol engine. Both engines will meet Bharat Stage 6 (BS6) emission norms. Honda is expected to launch the new City in Indian market later this year. The car could be showcased at the 2020 Indian Auto Expo. Honda
