GUANGZHOU – Guangzhou-Honda Automobile Co., Ltd. plans to add an AT version to the 1.3L City lineup.
The City is powered by 1.3L i-DSI and 1.5L VTEC engines. Currently, the 1.3L City only has an MT version available. The new AT version is equipped with the same 5-gear transmission which is used in the 1.5L City. The vehicle rolls smoothly along at a speed of 100km/h while the engine rotates at only about 2,369 rpm, which assures fuel economy and curbs noise while driving.
Guangzhou-Honda sold a total of 7,246 1.3L MT Citys in 2006; in the first six months of this year, 4,922 units sold, up 50.61 percent over the same period last year, according to CBU-Autostats.
