Honda Indonesia has been teasing for the past week that it will be introducing two new RS models in the archipelago but the production version of the SUV RS Concept isn’t one of them. Instead, the pair of RS models are the 2022 Honda City Hatchback RS with Honda Sensing and a dressed-up Honda Brio called the Brio RS Urbanite Edition.

We won’t be focusing on the little Honda which is the best-selling city car in Indonesia (more popular than the Perodua Axia triplets, the Daihatsu Ayla and Toyota Agya), and instead set our eyes on the City Hatchback RS.

Despite sharing the same “Road Sailing” trim name as the Malaysian City Hatchback RS, the Indo City Hatchback RS isn’t a hybrid. Honda has yet to offer the i-MMD powertrain for the City Hatchback and City in Indonesia.

Rather, the RS is the only trim of sorts that is offered for the City Hatchback in the archipelago and the Honda Sensing-equipped variant is the latest, bringing the total to 3. All three variants are powered by the naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC (121 PS/145 Nm) engine that is also available on the non-hybrid variants of the City and City Hatchback in Malaysia.

The City Hatchback RS is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission in Indonesia but this transmission isn’t offered for the variant with Honda Sensing. Instead, a CVT automatic is the only transmission available if buyers wanted a City Hatchback with Honda’s nifty ADAS suite.
