Can be availed as an accessory package for those that have the new City prior to the Mugen
Honda Cars Philippines Inc. (HCPI) has just announced that the new City VX Mugen Special Edition they previewed during the launch is now available in dealers. The car will be equipped with factory bolt-on accessories from the company's tuning division Mugen along with a new selection of colors that were exclusively designed to bolster the already premium look and finish of the all-new City.
The car will be equipped with a unique grill with Mugen badging, a front and rear under spoiler, side skirts and 17-inch alloy wheels that have a nut and lock set. Exterior colors for the Mugen edition will come in Gold Brown Metallic, Tafetta White, Crystal Black Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic and Carnelian Red Pearl.
Inside, the City VX Mugen Special Edition will still come with its high tech toys like the 7-inch touch screen display, Bluetooth audio playback, voice recognition control and automatic climate control with touch panel.
Under the hood is the 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine that generates 120 PS at 6600 rpm and 145 Nm of torque. It can be mated to either a 5-speed manual gearbox or to a CVT that will come paddle shifters for manual gear-changing.
It is currently being offered with a special introductory price of PHP 1,030,000 and comes with a 3-year warranty. For those that currently have the new City, customers can avail the City Mugen Accessory Package that is priced at PHP 189,000, inclusive of installation fee and will include a 1-year warranty that covers the accessories.
