The Honda City 2017 borrows styling cues from the current generation Civic. While the City’s design continues to be based on Honda’s ‘H Design’ philosophy, it gets a bolder grille, new bumpers, new headlamps with LED DRLs, and LED taillamps. It also gets slight changes to its sheet metal. Dimensions could increase slightly as the City will get new bumpers. However, width, height and wheelbase should remain the same.

New Honda City 2017 Interior

Talking about the interior, the new City facelift shares in plenty with the current model. The City is easily among the most feature-laden models in its segment. For the Indian market, the 2017 Honda City will come in five trims- S, SV, V, VX and ZX. While the Honda City facelift carries features like DRLs and LED lights on the outside, the cabin carries a lot more feature additions. On the inside, the car gets features such as LED cabin lighting, steering-mounted audio controls even on lower variants, refreshed MID, chrome accents and a rear park assist with camera. Honda will add a new ZX trim to the variant lineup of the Honda City.

This is all that is known about the new Honda City 2017. But you can stay tuned for latest news and complete details on the new Honda City 2017 facelift.


  1. Please confirm if the ground clearance of Honda city has been increased to cater to speed breakers in India. My purchase of a City will depend on this.

  2. I too have been waiting for the City to increase its ground clearance from 165 to atleast 170 mm but it appears that they have not made any improvement on this front in the 2017 facelift model. This will continue to give the Ciaz an edge over even the new City.

    Also, they should consider provision of the navigation system from the V MT model onwards.

  3. I like the City 2017 and looking forward for a booking, but we need more ground clearance, otherwise the car get damage by speed breakers in our country
