Honda Ballade Cars For Sale
The Honda Ballade car for sale is a veteran on the South African roads, first introduced in the 1990s in a boxy shape subcompact 5-door city slicker, becoming a legitimate, trusted vehicle under the Mercedes-Benz custodianship known for its reliability and versatility. Since its launch, buyers have sought a used Honda Ballade for its reliability, comfort and practicality.
For a used car, the Honda Ballade is a sleek, stylish and reliable family sedan. The external design of the used Honda Ballade car for sale is elegant and chiselled panels with smooth finishes, redesigned front, and rear bumpers as well as a re-designed front grille. It is available in only four handpicked colour options and gives the latest Ballade a look and feel to compete strongly in its class. Size-wise it fits perfectly between the compact hatchback Jazz and the more C size segment Civic.
The interior finishes are adequate with fabric upholstery as standard with varying plastic accents in piano black and silver. Although not the soft touch of some competitors, it has been well designed to look and feel like quality. The dashboard of the second hand Honda Ballade displays are newly designed in the 2019 model with easy to read illuminated dials and a multi-functional steering wheel. The top of the range option has a standard leather finish, keyless entry and stop/start ignition, fully automated climate control system and ISOFIX child seat mounts. The infotainment holds its own compared to industry standard, with touch screen display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Options for added extra's include USB and Bluetooth 180mm touch screen display with iPhone and iPad compatibility. Space is more than adequate and can seat 4 adults with comfort and cargo space that is plenty and easy to load.
The latest model still has a 1.5liter petrol engine but has been redesigned slightly to perform better at lower revolutions and paired with either manual or automatic transmission. The automatic gearbox has a better fuel economy with 5.9liters per 100km and reaches 0- 100 km/hour in 9,6 seconds. The manual transmission provides sharper more responsive control but adds to fuel consumption and cabin noise.
If you’re looking at a newer Honda Ballade car for sale, you’ll find a comfortable ride with dynamic and adequate handling enhanced standard traction control and electronic stability control. It is not a cheap buy but has proven its quality and reliability over the years, an elegant well-designed mid-size car, and perfect for city driving but equally capable on the highway.
