Honda is set to give its top selling sedan in India, the City, a mid-life makeover to help it regain its spot at the top of the sedan pile from the Maruti-Suzuki Ciaz.
The facelifted City is set to enter India in January 2017 and will apparently be inspired by the Honda Griez Sedan which is sold in China. Honda had recently shipped two prototypes to China from its home base in Japan for testing purposes.
The new facelifted Honda City is expected to feature restyled bumpers and tweaked headlamp and tail lamp clusters, with the headlamps featuring projector units while the tail lamps will use LEDs.
Inside, the new City is expected to feature Honda's latest touchscreen infotainment system that supports both Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto.
The infotainment system is expected to be similar to the units used in the Accord and in models sold in international markets.
Mechanically, the City will retain its 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, which are expected to remain unaltered. The petrol engine is expected to be benefit from the new 6-speed gearbox seen on the BR-V.
With regards to pricing, expect the facelifted City to feature a marginal hike with regards to its price tag thanks to the new additions.
