That vehicle, of course, is the Honda City, a sedan version made in India for sale in south and southeast Asia. The tiny sedan could make it Stateside as part of the new Fit lineup to be made in Mexico, and if it does, we hope we get some of the parts shown here.
What we're looking at, in fact, is not simply a City kitted out from the Mugen parts catalog, but a special edition made for the Philippines. It's based on the 1.5 EL AT trim, so it only packs a 1.5-liter four with 120 horsepower and a five-speed automatic transmission. But Honda's Filipino subsidiary has fitted it with a full aero kit and white paintjob to at least make it look the part, and will only build 20 of them.
December 20, 2013 - Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) will introduce in limited quantity the Honda City equipped with original and genuine MUGEN accessories.
The Honda City has enjoyed high market acceptance for providing amazing value with its stylish design, fuel efficient yet powerful driving performance, and outstanding interior space and utility.
The City MUGEN Limited Edition enhances the ownership experience by being equipped with original genuine MUGEN accessories. Unique front sports grille, front under spoiler, side spoiler, rear under spoiler and rear wing spoiler enhance the already sporty design of the standard City model and make it stand out on the road. The City MUGEN Limited Edition under the concept "SUPERLATIVE ACTIVE SPORTS" produced to emphasize the specific characteristics of the City, "Stream line design" and "Nimble handling" with the aero dynamic parts seek to satisfy the sporty taste and excellently designed to meet the customer's desire for ultimate style and performance.
Only twenty (20) units of the City MUGEN Limited Edition Model will be made available in the Philippines. This will guarantee a high exclusivity for the owner of this model. Available starting today is the 1.5 EL AT variant in Taffeta White color. The City MUGEN Limited Edition Model 1.5 EL AT variant will have a special introductory price of Php 976,000.
