Honda Will Add RS Line, For City Sedan?

 Honda gave a surprise again this month. After recently launching the latest HR-V, Honda stepped on the gas by bringing back a new product.

Previously, Honda already had several models that had an RS variant. Usually, the RS nomenclature is pinned on models with a sporty aura and become the top variant. Some of the models that received the RS code include the Civic RS sedan, City Hatchback RS, Brio RS, and HR-V Turbo RS. The Mobilio had received the RS variant but is currently only available in the S variant with a manual transmission.

Honda Will Add RS Line, For City Sedan?

If you look at the leaks that were present, it could be that the one that gets the latest RS touch is the City sedan. This can be seen from the form of images that appear on Honda's social media which shows the shape of the front of a vehicle that is similar to the sedan.

Currently the City is offered in one variant with several features such as the use of a 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine with 121 ps power. There is still the use of 16-inch rims, headlamps with LED and LED DRLs, LED fog lamps, modern meter clusters. Inside, there is an 8-inch head unit, 8 speakers, six airbags, paddle shifters, remote engine start and a large cargo area.

Looking at some of the features in Thailand, the City may get additional RS accessories as in other RS models, namely a black grille, body-colored door handles, side mirrors with black ornaments. There is no change in the size of the rim which is still 16 inches. The interior comes in black and uses red stitching to add a sporty impression. There is no change in the size of the head unit.

Another possibility is the presence of Honda Sensing on the City sedan. These safety features consist of Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow, Auto-High Beam, and Lead Car Departure Notification System. (LCDN). However, if you see that this feature is not present in City Hatcback in Indonesia, this feature may not be offered.

Currently City is only offered in one variant with a price tag of IDR 365.4 million. The presence of this RS variant is likely to increase the small sedan market which is now no longer subject to different taxes thanks to emission tax regulations.

We'll see what Honda will offer in the next few hours. At least this is a breath of fresh air for Honda consumers who have continuously received new product offers in the last few months.

Honda also still has one product that will be presented this year on the basis of the RS CONCEPT SUV. Had circulated the possibility of this model is the figure of the ZR-V which was developed for the South Asian market. But seeing this possibility, it seems that consumers will have to endure the wait to be able to see the production version of the RS Concept SUV.
