Talking of the City RS Turbo, this is the sporty counterpart of the standard model. Sporty bumpers, a trunk lid-mounted rear spoiler, darkened glass for its taillamps and the full-LED headlamps with black inserts. The new RS Turbo gets 16-inch alloys instead of the 15-inch wheels which were seen in the standard version of the car. 

The RS Turbo has a differentiated interior as well. Sportier trimming on the dashboard and centre console, different seat fabric and red accents on the instrument cluster add on to the distinguishing features.

Under the hood, the RS Turbo gets the same power as the standard City. The engine is a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine which comes along with a CVT gearbox as the City for Thailand.
