Honda City Facelift Launching On 14th Feb - Specs At A Glimpse

Honda is all set to launch an upgrade to its already successful sedan, the City, on 14th February, 2017. Prices are expected to start around Rs 9 lakh and go all the way to Rs 13 lakh. In the given segment, the updated model i.e. City Facelift is going to face competition from Volkswagen Vento, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. Honda aims to regain its lost market share with the City Facelift’s launch.


Car’s overlook has improved a lot with minimal changes including totally redesigned front bumper to accommodate bigger air vents and a flashy new front grill. Rear bumper is also tweaked a bit to complete the restyling. The front headlights and the fog-lamps are LEDs, and the headlamp units house daytime running LEDs as well. All four wheels now boast 16 inches newly designed alloy rims.


Most of the changes are inside the cabin, with inclusion of a new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting turn-by-turn navigation, 1.5 GB on-board media memory, MirrorLink connectivity, voice recognition and a rear-view camera. The sunroof now comes with one-touch open/close operation, and the reading lights are now all-LED. Customers will also get automatic headlamps and wipers, six airbags (dual front, side and curtain), cruise control and automatic climate control with rear AC vents.


The transmission line remains unchanged being powered by i-VTEC and i-DTEC engines. The 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine produces 119PS of power and 145Nm of torque and will be available with both 5-speed manual and CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) gearbox. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine generates 100PS of power and 200Nm of torque coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Five variants will be showcased – S, SV, V, VX and ZX. The S variant will only be available with the petrol engine and customers opting for the petrol-powered V and VX variants will have a choice between automatic (CVT) and manual gearbox. Each variant will be 30k-40k pricier than the older City versions
