The Honda City remains the best-selling sedan in the country under Rs 20 lakh, even though SUVs are the more in trend vehicles to buy. The new fifth-generation City is a good looking sedan if a bit plain, which this body kit rectifies.
The Honda City is one of the longest-running nameplates in the Indian auto sector, arriving in the country over two decades ago in 1998. Even though the current trend of the Indian auto market is heavily tilted towards SUVs, the City continues to be a successful product. Honda recently launched the fifth-generation City in India, with sales comfortably ahead of its segment rivals like the Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Ciaz. The new City is more of an evolutionary update, getting features and changes that make it up to date and better than ever. Today we came across this aftermarket body kit available for the City.
The picture of this modified fifth-generation Honda City has been uploaded by 360motoringkollam on Instagram. It is fitted with a full-body kit that the page terms as the Lumga V1 Body kit. The stock front bumper has been replaced with a larger sculpted one that features much bigger air dams and a front splitter. The front grille has been replaced with a honeycomb type one while there’s a thicker gloss black strip running the width of the grille. The body kit also adds a set of side skirts though the overall side profile remains fairly stock. Moving to the rear-end, the taillights get a smoked effect while the body-kit means the City gets a new rear bumper. The bumper is much more aggressive than the stock one, featuring a faux diffuser and exhausts.
Prices for the Honda City range from Rs 10.99 lakh for the base V MT, going up to Rs 14.94 lakh for the flagship ZX MT Diesel. It comes with features like LED headlights, DRLs, and tail lamps while there are new 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The interior gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Weblink support, and ambient lighting. The fifth-gen City also gets Amazon Alexa remote control and connected car technology that allows remote engine-start and door lock-unlock.
Powertrain options include 1 petrol and 1 diesel. The petrol is a 1.5-litre N/A unit that churns out 120 PS and 145 Nm of peak power and torque. The diesel unit is a 1.5-litre unit as well, making peak power and torque figures of 100 PS and 200 Nm, respectively. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a CVT automatic.
