A stance'd modified Honda City with air-suspension is a rare sight but we came across one recently and were left might impressed
“Built Not Bought” is a quote quite popular around car enthusiasts who love to customize their rides according to their taste. The car culture in India is also reaching new heights with every passing day. Not only are our cars are becoming capable but even sourcing aftermarket parts is not all that tough anymore. Here’s one such example of a tastefully modified Honda City, which deserves to be adjudged as one of the best modified examples of the popular sedan in the country. The car is from Kerela and belongs to Agash Sudhakaran. It is a third-generation 2011 model that has been stance'd with the help of Accuair E-Level Air Suspension. So, now, this City can adjust its riding height and camber with the press of a button.
This Honda City with air-suspension is quite a poser and can adjust its camber on its own.
The car remains in a company-spec paint scheme but is de-chromed with the use of black highlights. The ORVMs, fuel tank cap, front grille, and window lines have now been finished in matt-black. Other cosmetic mods on this car include LED headlamps with DRLs, LED foglamps, and 16-inch Borbet rims wrapped in 205 section rubber. The owner has also tweaked the car’s powertrain a fair bit. It uses a BMC air intake system and a custom exhaust system to let the engine breathe freely.
The third generation of the Honda City was offered with a 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine only. This naturally aspirated 4-cylinder motor propelled a peak power output of 116 HP at 6,600 RPM and a maximum torque output of 146 Nm at 4,800 RPM. However, now the carmaker is all set to launch the fifth generation of the car in the country. It is expected to be launched as soon as the nationwide lockdown is lifted.
The new Honda City will be offered with 2 engine options in the country, 1.5L petrol and 1.5L diesel. The 1.5L i-VTEC petrol motor will have a peak power output of 121 PS and will come with two engine options - a 5-speed manual and a CVT. The 1.5L diesel, on the other hand, will only produce 100 PS as its peak power output. It will be offered with 2 gearbox options – 6-speed MT and CVT. The new City will also feature Honda’s LaneWatch Camera, which will be a first-in-segment feature, which is something that has been reserved for pricier models like the CIvic.
