In comparison to the locally sold City, the upcoming Chinese version seems to have darker graphics for the headlight clusters while the front grille doesn’t have that thick chrome bar as on the Indian-spec model. Instead, it adopts a glossy black look for that grille and adds a thinner chrome bar on the lower portion of the center grille which then expands onto the bottom of the headlights.

Moving towards the rear end, the taillights have a different shape while the bumper has also gone through some mild changes, but nothing of great significance. The trunk lid also appears to be a bit different and there is a fresh alloy wheel design while the lower areas of the side doors now feature a revised crease.

Interestingly, Chinese media says the Honda City set to be sold over there will be 4495 mm long, 1705 mm wide and 1477 mm tall, thus making it different in proportions compared to the Indian-spec model which measures 4440 mm length, 1695 mm width and 1495 mm tall. This means the Chinese version is slightly longer, wider and lower while the 2600 mm wheelbase has remained the same.

The China-spec Honda City is expected to make use of a four-cylinder, i-VTEC engine with a 1.5-liter displacement and a 130 bhp output. It will be channeled to the front wheels through either a manual transmission or an optional CVT available at an additional cost.

We remind you the Honda City sold in India has the same engine but with only 119 bhp and you can also get it with a more economical 1.5-liter i-DTEC producing 100 bhp and 200 Nm of torque. The gasoline version returns 17.8 kmpl (five-speed manual) and 18 kmpl (CVT) whereas the diesel (six-speed manual only) will do 26 kmpl.

As a final note, the China-spec Honda City will be manufactured and sold locally by the Guangzhou Auto Corporation (GAC) joint venture.
