Honda has filed a patent for the Crider sedan in India. Does this mean that the next-generation Honda City could take its inspiration from the same?
As you may already know, the next-generation Honda City is going to make its global debut sometime later this year. And consequently, reach Indian shores early next year.

It is currently on sale in the Chinese market. Since the possibility of the Crider making its way to India is quite small, the reason for filling a patent for the same in India means that Honda is looking to use the design elements of the same in one of its future cars, most likely, the next-generation City.
The Honda Crider is sold exclusively in the Chinese market. It stands as a slightly premium alternative to the Honda City. Not only this, the former is slightly larger in its dimensions than the latter. It is based on City’s updated platform. The next-gen Honda City is likely to be bigger in comparison to the current iteration.
The next-generation Honda City is going to get a completely makeover in terms of its exteriors. The C-segment sedan will get bolder and sleaker in comparison. Honda is likely to improve the premium attributes of this vehicle. Hence, expect the car to feature extensive chrome bits.
Not just on the outside, but the interiors of the next-gen Honda City are going to see a massive update. Not only is it going to get a new layout, but the material quality is also set to improve. And so is the list of creature comforts and safety features.
The engine specifications of the Honda City are also going to get a major overhaul. The engines will remain the same but they will become compliant with
