2012 Honda City released
The 2012 Honda City has a new look, new features and a sharp price of $19,990 drive-away (manual, flat paint only).

Honda Australia Director and General Manager Mr. Stephen Collins said; “The new-look City has received a number of new features and styling. The all-new price of $19,990 drive-away makes the City sensational value for money. Australians will love the look of the new-look City.”

The City is available in two variants – the VTi and VTi-L. Both variants receive a new chrome grille along with redesigned front and rear bumpers for a more streamlined look. The brake lights are also redesigned.

The VTi receives a new rear micro antenna while the VTi-L receives new-look 16 inch alloy wheels and adds a master door lock switch on the driver’s side. Inside, the City gains aluminum-look treatment for the interior panels and trim, while the audio and climate controls in the VTi-L receive a chrome treatment. A new seat fabric further adds to the luxurious feel of the cabin, with the VTi-L receiving additional blue stitching.

The dash has also been refreshed, with the speedometer now glowing blue. Thicker window glass and enhanced carpet on the floor significantly improve cabin quietness.

There is also a new colour for the City – Sparkling Brown Metallic – that complements its current palette of Taffeta White, Alabaster Silver, Polished Metal, Crystal Black and Carnelian Red.
