Honda is launching a special edition of one of its smallest models. But don’t go running off to your local dealership just yet, because this one is exclusive to the Japanese Domestic Market.
It’s based on the Grace, which is what Honda calls the City sedan back in its home market – essentially a Fit/Jazz with a trunk. The Style Edition upgrades with dark chrome grille, door handles and license plate frame, while the interior is spruced up by blue stitching on the black fabric upholstery and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Buyers will be able to choose between two trim levels – LX or EX – both of which are motivated by a 1.5-liter inline-four hybrid powertrain, sending a combined 117 horsepower through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and driving the front wheels or all four.
The Honda Grace Style Edition is being offered in two exclusive metallic shades of black and dark blue, in addition to the usual pearl white and red metallic. Pricing starts at 2,098,400 yen (about $20k) for the Honda Grace LX Hybrid Style Edition in front-drive spec, and tops out at 2,424,400 yen ($24k) in EX trim with all-wheel drive.
