Honda City, which ruled the market for a decade is now in need to have a fresh interior, exteriors and most importantly the diesel model to stand back in the race of its segment leaders. Honda SIEL has plans to launch the face-lifted version of Honda City Sedan in India with the ultimate aim of boosting its sales but there is no timeline or official info about launch available as of now. Honda has already cut the prices of Honda City recently.
A concept of the next generation City was displayed at the 2008 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The new face-lift model is expected to be inspired with the concept model. The face-lift model of Honda City is expected to have a new set of front and rear bumper, new alloys, modified grille and new head and tail lamps where there is going to be some minor design tweaks in the headlights while the taillights could get an LED treatment.
Apart from the exteriors there are expected to have some modifications in the interiors like new instrumental panel, new interior trim, a new CD player. There is not going to be any change in the engine and transmission, until 2013 that is, when a 1.5-liter diesel engine will be launched. New Honda City face-lift will come with an improved and sportier look than the current model to give a tough competition to its rivals.
