Outgoing version of the Honda City with a body kit from NKS Design looks much better than the upcoming 5th-gen model of the car.
New-gen Honda City is slated for launch in coming days. However, the brand would continue selling the outgoing model of the car alongside the new one. The outgoing car would see a price cut to lure buyers from a segment lower. But Honda is not planning to induce any change to its exterior. The car will continue to sport the same attire in which it was launched in the year 2017. But, the aftermarket body kits are always available to the rescue. Thus, one can opt for the outgoing City over the new-gen City and plonk in a body kit with the money saved by settling for the outgoing model. While the much-known Mugen kits are quite common a sight, here's another viable option. It is from a Thailand-based manufacturer known as ‘NKS Studio’.
The tuning firm offers more than 20 body kit combinations for the 4th-gen City. This is possible as a result of permutation and combinations of various parts, such as bumpers, side skirts, spoilers, air dams, diffusers, headlamps, and grilles. Here are a few examples of the 4th-gen City that have been shod with different parts from the NKS Design's part bin. The wide-body kit with flared fenders is also a part of their product catalogue.
The body kit gives the Honda City a fierce-looking rear end with triple exhaust pipes.
Currently, the design studio does not retail its products in India. However, one can buy them directly by making advance payments. Importing the kits with the help of traders dealing with other sources in Thailand is a feasible option as well. This way the shipping cost would reduce by a fair margin. It should be noted that these parts do not come painted from the manufacturer and have to be painted on your own.
The body kit is offered in part and does come painted from the manufacturer.
Talking of the performance upgrades, NKS offers none. The brand only deals in the parts that help the car with an amplified visual appeal. The 4th-gen City is offered with a 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine that produces 119 PS of peak power output. The City’s 4-cylinder N/A motor is tuner friendly in nature. Therefore, to bring the right amount of alignment between the car’s visual appeal and performance is not a tough code to crack. Stage 1 ECU remap with a free flow air filter would be adequate to extract some extra punch from the engine. And, these jobs can be performed with the help of local tuners itself.
