Honda, the Japanese major automaker has launched an exclusive edition of the Honda City with original MUGEN accessories for Philippines buyers. The company will manufacture only 20 units of the City Mugen Edition, which will be offered only with its 1.5 EL AT trim, painted in Taffeta White color. This limited City Mugen Edition will be available at 29 dealerships across Philippines.
With a concept to manufacture a “SUPERLATIVE ACTIVE SPORTS” car with “Stream line design” and “Nimble handling”, Honda designed the City Mugen Edition. The front sports grille, front under spoiler, side spoiler, heavy rear wing spoiler and rear under spoiler are the new add-ons, making the City Mugen Edition sportier different from the regular version.
The City Mugen edition is configured with the same 1.5-litre i-VTEC powertrain that delivers a peak power of 117bhp and a torque of 145Nm. A five-speed automatic transmission is the only available option. In Philippines, the Honda City is also available with a 1.3-litre i-VTEC power-unit that produces a maximum power output of 100PS and 113kgm of peak torque. This engine is coupled with a five-speed manual transmission.
This exclusive models is priced at Php 976,000 (approx. Rs. 13.62 lakh), which makes it a little expensive than the regular City 1.5 EL AT variant, but the original Mugen accessories and super exclusivity for this price is certainly a lucrative deal.
