- Daytime lights standard across the range
- Interior finishes and detail improvements
- Higher spec for Executive models
JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng – Honda Southern Africa has updated its Ballade sedan and so refreshed one of the longest-running car badges in South Africa.
And one of the most respected among family sedans – no doubt enhanced by the 200 000km warranty that comes with the new car..
The cars have a redesigned nose and tail bumpers, a revised grille and new wheel-rim designs which, Honda believes, “emphasise the compact sedan’s sleek, aerodynamic shape and add a fresh look, especially to the front”.
Daytime running lights are now fitted to all models and the flagship Executive gets diode headlights.
Cabin surfaces, materials and finishes have been updated, Honda says, to be “smarter, sportier and more user-friendly” but still with the traditional Honda focus on overall quality.
The Executive also has fully-auto aircon, leather upholstery, a smart keyless-entry system and engine start/stop button. IsoFix child seat anchors are now fitted to all models.
Four colours are waiting – white, two silver metallic, and red. (Prices below the image.)
