Honda cars are all set to launch the next-generation Honda City in the Indian market. The launch has been delayed due to the ongoing Corona virus situation in the country. Honda had already launched the new City in international market and many of them have even started modifying it. We have featured a couple of them on our website in the pat. Here we have a uniquely modified new-gen Honda City that has been modified to look like a rally car.
This new gen Honda City has bee modified by Japan based tuner RS-R. The whole car gets a rally car treatment that looks amazing. Starting with the front, It looks like the custom house had opted for regular City rather than going for the RS version. The chrome elements on the car has been completely removed or blacked out. The signature front grille has been blacked out and headlights remain the same as before with LED DRLs in it. Coming down towards the bumper, the car gets a lower lip spoiler and apart from that everything remains the same at the front.
On the bonnet the car gets rally car like vinyls to make it look more sporty. Coming to the side profile the sticker work covers both the doors and moves to the rear of the car. There are side skirts and the car now sits lower than the stock version. The other change on the side is the bronze coloured sporty looking alloy wheels.
At the rear, no major changes can be spotted except for the new exhaust system. On the inside, this Honda city gets Recaro sports seat and apart fromt that pretty much everything looks similar to the one found in stock version. It is not known whether the custom house has retuned the engine and the power figures have gone up or not.
Internationally Honda City is available with a 1.0 litre turbo petrol RS version which is unlikely to make its way to the Indian market. The Indian version of the City will be getting the tried and tested 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5 litre diesel engine. Honda City will compete with cars like Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna in the segment.
