The changes might include

1) sunroof in V option
2) Indicators on mirror
3) console dial colors will be now in blue

Thats tempting. I love blue as I find it to be quite soothing.
I am on the fence and waiting for the facelifted version. Got a call today from sales consultant saying that they have not yet got any official information on the facelift but "internet" reports indicate there could be a facelift coming soon. So its wait and watch.

I dont think this will be done. Going by the history of Honda facelifts, have they ever did so many interior changes? Any word on ACC or Bluetooth?

LED lights for the rear - this was communicated by a sales rep in Gurgaon a month back and, now the latest scoop pics confirm it.

The interior color scheme is going to change as well.

He also mentioned DRL's, but that IMO might be far fetched

Yes, the indicators on the ORVM was expected. Hope they get the blueberry shade that they have on the Intl Jazz / Fit. That would be a nice shade. Very similar to the concept car color.

It must be 15 only, its just the angle of the pic that makes one think the sidewall is slimmer. The Thai top end version does come with 16 though.

Thanks, some details are apparent, clearer pics would confirm if the tail lights are indeed LEDs. Looks more like clear lens treatment than LEDs.

Indian autos blog has a scanned copy of brochure. They say it's the Thai version.
Honda City facelift brochure scans leaked

No ACC (same knobs, just blackened), no cruise control, no Bluetooth (no additional buttons on the steering wheel) as per this brochure :(

Can we expect more in the Indian version?

Posting pics here for convenience. The tail lamps appears to be of clear type and not LEDs.

Looks like we will get the same car here. The changes are not significant. A minor touch up to tail lamps and interiors doesn't matter much. So folks do get your City at discounted price right now.

This is very disappointing! What kind of a facelift is this? Significant been the changed tail lights, alloys and the dial colors. Also, the dashboard ICE player's color is still orange, which kind of does not match the blue dials! They should learn from i20.

Thanks Bluevolt, Manoj and Tachobells. Looks like they have made a few changes to the fog lamp housing on the front bumper and added reflectors to the rear bumper.
The interiors seem to have some changes as well - the bright silver finish center console seems to get a gun metal finish and the display lights have gone from Orange to Blue backlighting. May not gel with the orange on the stereo system?

Good time to pick up the City is now with all the discounts that are pouring in.
