2014 Honda City debuts in Thailand

By Faiming_low on 28 Jan 2014

Attached Image After its world premiere in India last year, the 2014 Honda City made its Asian debut in Thailand recently. They will receive a total of six different variants starting from 550,000baht(S$21,000) for the base model which is fitted with a five-speed manual transmission. For those who want some convenience, they can opt for the new seven-speed CVT transmission which is said to improve efficiency and effectively replaces the old five-speed automatic.  

Attached Image The new City gets a mildly improved 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine which churns out 120bhp and 145Nm of torque. Changes to the engine include a tweaked i-VTEC system, friction reduction (low tension oil seal, zigzag piston pattern coating) and weight reduction via an integrated resin intake manifold.
 
Attached Image Like its rival, the Vios, the 2014 Honda City also grew in terms of wheelbase length to improve its interior space. An increase of 50mm allows it to match the Nissan Almera’s wheelbase while overall length is just 25mm longer than the previous model.
  
Attached Image The Thailand-market City gets a seven-inch multimedia system which supports Bluetooth and other media connectivity features. An interesting feature for the 2014 Honda City is its touch-enabled automatic climate control system which is quite similar to Lexus’s IS saloon. It now also gets rear air-con vents which will prove useful in our country.
 
Attached Image Other niceties include keyless entry, push-start ignition and multi-function steering wheel with paddles shifters. Some of the cars with higher specifications will feature six airbags, VSA stability control, Hill Start Assist and a multi-angle rear view camera that allows you to adjust up to three different levels.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

I feel the design of Japanese (domestic) cars are getting uglier nowadays. They all following trends where adding excessive sharper curve to the bumper design in Toyota, Nissan (Almera)… and now Honda. You can note these in the bumper of latest Jap car especially Toyota (i.e Prius, Camry). This trends have spread like a plague.

I have to agree. This car is hideous. The new Jazz too is a complete mess, compared to the previous 2 generations. Honda has really lost the plot, design wise.

After reading  "Honda City is its touch-enabled automatic climate control system which is quite similar to Lexus’s IS saloon." And plus some of the photos that show inside of the Honda City, I think this is quite a good car. VW Jetta have to beware of it.

 

But i don't like the exterior much. And i would wait for the next gen one. Might be getting with i-VTEC Turbo. hehe.

As the City and Jazz go upmarket with features like 7-inch touchscreen and rear air-con vents, I see the larger current  Civic becoming dated in many ways now. It is supposed to be positioned above this car and yet I see many features are available in this City and not in the Civic. Our ASEAN Civic is way behind the curve now compared to other competitors and certainly the US version (already had 2 redesigns). Seems to be Honda Is losing the groove to making competitive cars at times like this.

Nothing fantastic on the exterior. But at the very least, the pictures did some justice to the interior of the car. Quite alright-looking, and the specifications are good. AND you can get more airbags. Not bad, I would say.
