launching of new Honda City

Even before the Transportshow was established, cars were in my life.

Not in an I love cars kinda way.  But more like a I need to have interest in cars because I;m into the buy and sell carexchange business.

And in my younger years,  cars has always fascinated me, I never dreamnt of joining in a mini carshow 
where my honda city was selected  to represent the SX8 car body.

I completely understand that for some people car shows are the ultimate in eye candy.
Gratitude is a part of my everyday life.  I look for, and mentally note the little
things.  It has trained my brain to see the good in everything, and that’s not a bad way to live.

One Search-All show.

During the (GM body)Honda  city lauching ealier this summer, (2014)My newly painted  honda city was lucky to be chosen to represent the SX8 in various honda showrooms.

The next-gen City was developed at Honda’s Tochigi R&D center with inputs extensive market surveys to adapt to the needs of customers as part of the company’s new 'global reform program
The interior features the 'man maximum machine minimum' concept  is applied to optimize interior space for occupants promising itself as the most spacious and comfortable City ever.

Our country, the Philippines will be getting similar engine options as the outgoing model;
possibly improved versions of the 1.3-liter i-VTEC and 1.5-liter i-VTEC with 'Earth Dreams' technology.

HCPI is aiming to set the standard in the sub-compact sedan segment with the launch of the all-new City. Penned under Honda’s new design language—Exciting H Design—the all-new City is a mix of angular lines, creases, and curves that look to elevate Honda back into the forefront of design. Beyond the design, the all-new City also presents new convenience features and a revised powertrain for improved power and efficiency.  it still retaind the GM6 body name

Compared to its immediate predecessor, the all-new fourth-generation City carries the same-sized body in terms of length (4,440 mm) and width (1,695 mm), but is +10 mm taller (1,495). The biggest news though is the additional +50 mm in wheelbase bringing the City to 2,600 mm—comparable to some C-segment sedans. [source wikipedia]

the all-new City is actually lighter than the outgoing model, shedding some 75 kilograms for same speced-automatic transmission variants. The City rides on standard 15-inch alloy wheels with the top-of-the-line variant getting 16-inch rims,LED side mirror turn signal indicators and front fog lamps.
theres 1.5 E Modulo Utility and 1.5 VX Aero Sports. my bet is Aero sports vx.

The all-new City is only available as a 1.5-liter model. This engine is largely a carryover from the previous City meaning it develops 120 horsepower. However, improvements have been made to its exhaust system, particularly the EGR valve, to improve fuel efficiency. This is mated to a 5-speed manual or the new Earth Dreams 7-speed CVT with paddle shifters.
theres no 1.3 version since honda launched another one, the brio -  just came out.

1.5 VX Aero Sports variant includes front grille, front under spoiler, side under spoiler, rear under spoiler, wing-type tailgate spoiler, illuminated side step garnish and Modulo emblem with the suggested retail price of P935,000.

The 1.5 E CVT Modulo Utility variant includes front grille, door visor, trunk tray, seatback holder, tablet holder, door side protector, trunk cargo hook and Modulo emblem with suggested retail price of P821,000.

Ive enjoyed every HCCP GEB and with Honda Cars Dealership as our venue every GEB, (I only missed the Bulacan and Maros Hiway venue by the way) you meet new friends who are city enthusiast and additional knowledge about the Honda City we love.

the only thing thats lacking in the GM model is the OEM stock panoramic sunroof. BY THE WAY, the GM city has the most number of kilometers per liter, as presented by sir Ron Delos Reyes, 22km/liter.(honda city sept 4 eco-run)
