Honda did a global unveiling of their next Generation City in India today. The car carries many visual changes, which makes it very different from the current model. The new design known follows the latest design language of the Japanese auto major and is known as Exciting H Design. The new design would form the base of every Honda car and will be incorporated in all Honda models in coming years. In India, the City has been a popular offering from Honda and the new model will for sure attract more customers.
The major change that has been done to this vehicle is the diesel engine. Honda has for long stayed away from the Diesel powered vehicles in India and the launch of Amaze brought a whole lot of changes to the sales figures and the popularity of the company. Honda City with an option of diesel engine will prove to be more potent and will take on cars like Vento and Verna more competitively. The new City has a completely renovated front fascia with new grille and new headlamps, which now look a part of the front grille and elongates the length of the grille to maximum. The tail-lamps now feature LED lamps clustered in a new design, which makes the vehicle very elegant. The front bumper has also been redesigned with broader air-scoops and the big housing for the fog lamps.
From the side, the strong creases which start from the A-Pillar and goes all the way to the tail-lamps makes the car very muscular while a lower and broader crease starting from the A-Pillar and dissolving at the C-Pillar makes the car look more stronger.
The new City has been made available in both petrol and diesel engine options. While the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol is the one already powering the existing generation, the 1.5-litre i-DTEC is the one found on the Amaze. Since, it was just an unveling, the company hasn't announced the pricing. So, expect the prices to be revealed during the launch in January.
