Honda Grace Style Edition 1

The Honda Grace, which is essentially the City for the Japanese domestic market, is now available in a special-edition “Style Edition” model. As you’d expect, the sedan gets several visual upgrades, and will be offered in two trim levels – Hybrid LX or Hybrid EX.

Beginning with the exterior, the car’s front grille, door handles and rear license frame are all finished in dark chrome to give it that “stylish” look. Meanwhile, the interior features black fabric upholstery (with contrast blue stitching) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The equipment list now includes an electronic toll collection (ETC) unit as well.

A hybrid powertrain continues to be the main source of propulsion here, featuring a 1.5 litre DOHC i-VTEC Atkinson cycle petrol engine (110 PS/134 Nm) paired with a seven-speed DCT. Electrification comes in the form of an electric motor (29.5 PS/160 Nm), and buyers get to choose between two- or four-wheel drive configurations.

In terms of pricing, the Honda Grace Style Edition will from 2,098,400 yen (RM83,004), and go all the way up to 2,424,400 yen (RM95,840), inclusive of consumption taxes. Buyers will get to choose from two exclusive metallic shades of black and dark blue, in addition to the usual pearl white and red metallic.
