So the new 2017 Honda City facelift is close to its launch. The web-space is already abuzz with news on the new model Honda City. Even we, at Car Blog India, have reported in enough detail on the upcoming Honda model. For instance, you can read about the differences in the new and old car in our New Honda City 2017 vs Old Model comparison. Images of upcoming new Honda City have surfaced on Team BHP revealing the car in full! Basically, the new 2017 Honda City is much like the current car, but its visual appeal has been tweaked. Also, the car boasts a longer features list. Apart from this, in all probability, the new 2017 Honda City facelift will have re-tuned engines for higher power and fuel mileage.
New 2017 Honda City Facelift Exterior
We have always liked the way the City looks. Based on Honda’s ‘H Design’ theme, the City’s design is modern and suave. The upcoming facelift is a fresher version of this design. The front grille, which is in line with Honda’s latest design language, has been updated to look more premium. The headlamps, which get LED fixtures, look more premium. The top-end variants could get LED headlamps, while even the lower trims are likely to get LED DRLs. Apart from this, even the front bumper will be new. The rear-end gets revised taillamps. These taillamps have a new motif and will also carry LED fixtures. Apart from this, the bumper is new. The car will carry a handful of chrome accents around the exterior body. There is also a new alloy wheel design on offer.
New 2017 Honda City Facelift Interior
While the exterior won’t carry many updates, the interior of the 2017 City could be comprehensively revised. We’ve always liked the City’s interior, but the 2017 model will boast an even better cabin setup. The dashboard will get a touchscreen AVN unit even on the lower models. The upholstery will be new. But a major update will be the inclusion of a third rear headrest, which will be for the middle passenger.
