The applied restyling in Honda City has hit the Japanese market. Called Grace there, the model was originally presented in Malaysia.
External changes include a new front grille (with Civic-like styling) and redesigned bumpers. The more expensive versions also gained leds in the headlights and the lanterns gained new reflectors.
Inside, the banks have received new coatings, LED reading lights and a new multimedia center with support for the Apple CarPlay operating system.
As with Fit sold in other markets (as in the United States), City / Grace won an interesting package of safety assists called the Honda Sensing.
It includes items such as adaptive autopilot, standalone emergency braking, standby assist and tracker recognition.
The hybrid configuration combines the 1.5 hp engine from 110 hp to a 30 hp electric, generating a total power of 137 hp. The gearbox is dual clutch automatic with seven speeds.
Prices in the Japanese market range from 1,769 million yen to 2,569 million yen – the equivalent of R $ 51 thousand to R $ 74 thousand.
Around here, the City received a CVT exchange rate in the basic version at the end of 2016, but has not undergone style changes since then. But even the first generation still has strong appeal among the used ones. Find out where the bug picks up here.
