Hats off to Honda for keeping the car away from the shutter bugs for so long! First they silently cleared the automatic models and then stopped the city production. Indeed goes to show the level of strategy and planning at Honda. +1 to the way they handled the Amaze launch. Ford could take a leaf or two from the guys at Honda.

Honda has always surprised the masses with the designs of their cars (City/Accord). Something deep inside tells me that this is indeed the 2014 Honda City. Have been predicting the stock markets since last 7 years, I hope I am right on this one

They also managed to hide the Brio AT and even engine details of the Amaze Diesel. All the mules were reported to be 3 cylinder. The Brio AT was assumed to be the CVT as in Thailand.

With comparing the camouflaged mule i could see the curves and the front grills are similar (to me at least)

Is this is what its going to be a new city ? or anyone spotted any new ones ?
Couldn't resist to see her .
Guys this pic has been around for over a year now. It is not the new City but a very early rendering of the car.

According to the website overdrive.in , their sources are claiming that the deliveries will start by March-April 2014 and the killer of all the pricing will be in the vicinity of the outgoing civic!!!
man it has dampened my spirit , I thought that finally I will be able to make a choice for my next purchase.

I will be really happy and thankful if some one can prove this report to be false...

Highly unlikely. Honda wouldn't have stopped taking orders for the current city if it had such a wide time frame. Secondly, I'm sure Honda has learnt its lesson with the Jazz and they'll be pricing their products wisely.

Completely agree. Also why would Honda leave a segment that has been rather lucrative for it? Why would they not just get a Civic and price it in the Corolla league? And if the new City was to cost as much as Civic, then what would be the point of City in the Honda portfolio? These reports just baffle me. Last i heard the new Corolla was to be priced in the 18-22L price range !! Absolute nonsense if you ask me.
The new City will be priced at levels similar to what the current car if offered at.

Couldn't agree more. While many would have noticed it, it takes initiative to articulate it here. Thanks.

thanks guys
your posts are like music to my ears.
I also agree that these days information available on overdrive is not very accurate. In fact it has been the case specially since Sirish Chandran left the company.

If this going to be the case, I would be forced to cancel my booking too.

Am sure Honda would not do this after seeing the success story with Amaze D

When will they be expanding their capacity? Current capacity is only 10K per month and they will make these numbers with Amaze/Brio combo alone.

Good news for those having booked the City!

New Honda City global unveiling on November 25th in India- Official

Quote:
Honda Cars India has officially announced that the next generation 2014 Honda City will have its global premiere on November 25th in India. The Japanese automaker send us an invite stating " The global unveiling of an iconic model which has redefined automotive design and technology".
Quote:
The next City is based on the new Jazz platform, and is expected to get an entirely new look. The vehicle will feature bigger wrap around clear lens headlamps with projector lights, new LED tail lamps, prominent creases on both sides and few others, making it look more sportier than ever.
Anticipating to be based on the FIT/JAZZ platform, the front look of the city would follow the same design language.

Second: I am not sure if Honda has officially announched 25th Nov launch. Even if 25th Nov is a correct date, I doubt Honda would send such a communiucation to them only. Has any bigger publication mentioned about an "offcial Honda statement".

Honda Cars India have just issued an invite for the “The global unveiling of an iconic model which has redefined automotive design and technology” to the media. The same news is now available in major auto sites.


Cheers!

The Civic in its final run had an ex-showroom price of around 12-13L. That segment has now crept up to the 14+ish range at the minimum, hasn't it?

The top variants of the City competitors are in 10-12 range anyway.

So it's quite possible that the top variant of the new City will be priced around that of the 'outgoing Civic'. The 'new Civic', if and when launched, will surely be in the 15+ bracket.
