Still very much the it car of the moment, the 2014 Honda City has impressed us and at least 10,000 Malaysian buyers so soon after its local launch. The Vios-beater is already available with a Modulo-branded bodykit here, but if that doesn’t catch your fancy, maybe Mugen’s upcoming look-faster dress-up package would.

The Honda City Mugen Prototype you see here premiered in the Philippines, alongside the standard car’s local introduction there. The Mugen bits include a unique front grille, complete four-piece all-around bodykit, carbon-fibre wing mirror covers, a boot lid spoiler and a set of 17-inch aluminium wheels.

For now, the Mugen package is labelled as a prototype as it’s not quite ready for production just yet, but Honda Philippines says that it will be available for purchase in the third quarter of 2014. Time will tell if or when it will arrive here in Malaysia, where only the Civic is offered with Mugen parts. The question is, will there be any takers?
