Introduction, Exterior

There was much skepticism when Japanese makes announced that they’ve shifted production to Thailand. Understandably there would be concerns about whether the same quality will be maintained. But as recent history has proven, despite the shift in manufacturing location, the same quality continues to apply.

 

Exterior

And the latest City casts those preconceptions even farther afield. Looking very much like a space ship out of a sci-fi movie, we find the new fourth generation car a looker. Where the previous three generations were more utilitarian econo-boxes, the new car is a breath of fresh air from the last egg-shaped design.

The new car uses a modular design that it shares with the new Jazz and other upcoming models from Honda which has helped it grow in size as well. The new car measures 4,442mm which makes it 32mm longer than its main rival, the Vios.
