Enjoy as much as zero fuel cost per kilometer with the Honda City

Celebration of more than 10,000 Honda City sales gets even better.  Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) is raffling off Php 10,000 worth of e-fuel cards to fifty (50) lucky customers who reserve any City variant from June to July 31, 2010.

In appreciation of the market’s ardent support, Honda brings patrons of the City an opportunity to experience zero fuel spending per kilometer traveled.  With free fuel, these fifty lucky winners can enjoy fuel mileage at zero cost.

Unstable fuel prices have been one of the major concerns of motorists.   That is why more and more have turned mindful of their consumption and have sought means to improve fuel economy.

One of the key strengths that made the City the winning choice of over 10,000 owners is its fuel efficiency.  The City has a number of features that aid better fuel mileage.  At the heart of the City is the renowned i-VTEC engine technology which varies valve timing to optimize fuel consumption.  It also comes with a class-leading 5-speed automatic transmission that contributes lesser engine stress. For fun and easy tracking of one’s fuel mileage, the City has a fuel meter located in the liquid crystal display of the instrument panel.  Such fuel meter shows instantaneous and average fuel consumption.  More than excellent fuel efficiency, the City is also engineered to pass the stringent European Emission Standards.  Among local manufacturers, Honda is the only brand that has reached EURO 4 levels for ALL its model line-up, even if Philippine regulations only require EURO 2 compliance.

“When we introduced the 3rd generation City, we envisioned it to change the landscape of the subcompact category.  Changing the rules in its class, we fit it with technologies that used to be available in higher models.     Gone are the days when this segment runs on basic features only.  Now, we are overwhelmed at how the market supported us and resulted in over 10,000 sales milestone.  I invite you to check out to learn more about the City’s over-all value for money proposition.” said Mr. Voltaire Gonzales, Vehicle Sales and Corporate Communications Head of HCPI.

During the student edition of Honda Challenge Cup, a fuel efficiency driving competition that subjects different Honda models in real-life driving situations while using normal driving styles, the tandem of Joseph Manguiat and Princess dela Paz from the University of the Philippines generated an average of 30.74 km/li with the 1.3 liter City A/T -- a remarkable result when you combine a very fuel efficient vehicle with good driving habits.  “I was able to pick up a lot of learning from my Honda Challenge Cup experience.  To save on fuel, one must simply be patient.  Wise use of brakes, gradual and steady acceleration and safe gliding will earn you extra fuel mileage.”  said  Mr. Manguiat.
