|Bangkok, October 30, 2002 --- Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (HATC) will soon launch the all-new City in Thailand, showcasing some of Honda's most advanced automobile engineering and built on Honda's latest global platform.
The all-new City will make its public debut at Honda's pavilion at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2002, at Impact Convention and Exhibition Center, Muang Thong Thani, from November 30 to December 10, 2002.
Equipped with the latest 1.5-liter i-DSI (Dual Sequential Ignition) engine, the all-new City combines excellent driving performance with high fuel efficiency, low emissions and outstanding value for money.
The all-new City's super-efficient powerplant is mated to Honda's innovative Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for smooth and seamless driving.
