Refreshed 2024 Honda City could be here as early as July
It might not be long before the 2024 Honda City facelift makes its way to the Philippines.
Back in March of this year, the updated sedan made its world debut in India. Not only did the four-door get a refreshed exterior and interior, but it's now available with Honda Sensing which provides extra peace of mind while on the road.
Several months later, it was spotted in Malaysia albeit wearing camouflage. This means the automaker is preparing to launch the 2024 City in Southeast Asia. But when will the B-segment sedan actually be launched in the Philippine market?
According to insider info we received, the updated Honda City could be here as early as next month. A colleague of ours was inquiring about getting the current Honda City from a dealership. A sales representative got back to them and said that they no longer have any City units available because they will be releasing a new one with a minor model change which could arrive by July.
“Wala na po available na Honda City as of now. Ni-run out na po kasi yung mga stocks dahil maglalabas na po ng new City with minor model change possible by July po,” said the sales representative.

With July just several weeks away, we'll be keeping our eyes open for any possible leaks or new information about the B-segment sedan making its official debut here soon. Hopefully, we can expect the refreshed City to come with the same level of updates as what the Indian market received earlier this year.
These include a new part-digital, part-analog instrument cluster with a 7-inch multi-info display, a sunroof, beige leather seats on higher-grade models, a wireless charging pad, and the aforementioned Honda Sensing suite of intelligent driver aids. We're also hoping the updated City becomes available with the e:HEV powertrain which doles out a healthy 126 PS and 253 Nm of torque, while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
