Honda Cars Philippines Launches the New City Hatchback, Now with Honda SENSING

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) officially launched the New City Hatchback last June 14, 2024 at Bonifacio High Street. The updated model now boasts updates to its interior and exterior, but more importantly, now also comes with Honda SENSING. This is the follow up to its predecessor that previously held 90% of the B-Segment hatchback market share.

The familiar versatile sportiness of the City Hatchback model has been improved with an updated RS body kit with a new bumper and front grille. It also comes fitted out with 16-inch Berlina Black alloy wheels, with radial, unrestrained spokes to support its sporty image with its large diameter expression.

Honda SENSING will now make rides in the New City Hatchback extra safe, and so making it more fun too. It is Honda’s driver-assist system, developed as a response to the brand’s goal to realize a collision-free society by 2050, providing safer roads for all who use them.

The Honda SENSING features supported on the New City Hatchback are:

  1. Lead Car Departure Notification (LCDN)
  2. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  3. Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  4. Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS)
  5. Road Departure Mitigation and Lane Departure Warning (RDM with LDW)
  6. Auto High Beam (AHB)

For added safety and convenience, the New City Hatchback now has Walk Away Auto Door Lock and six (6) airbags. Technological updates to the New City Hatchback include a 4.2” TFT Meter and Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Seats inside the car are now RS full leather seats, and a new color, Sonic Gray Pearl, is also available for this New City Hatchback, a color not currently available for any model that HCPI is carrying right now. Other colors also include:

  • Ignite Red Metallic
  • Platinum White Pearl
  • Meteoroid Gray Metallic
  • Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic

Only the RS variant will be available, which retails at PHP 1,189,000. The New City Hatchback, as well as other Honda models, will be on display at the 9th Ave. Bonifacio High Street Activity Center until June 16, 2024. Also available onsite is a Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) test ride from Saturday to Sunday.
