I meant the Diesel because I feel it would not be highly priced comparing Verna in the same segment, in that case Honda would face one more Jazzy pricing result. (purely my opinion)

OT : Meanwhile Honda removed the city from pricelist https://www.hondacarindia.com/ownahonda/pricelist.aspx

Wow! Things are moving very fast at Honda. I didn't even know Honda was going to discontinue the City before the T-BHP sales analysis for October came out earlier this month.

This is now a broken record! But I really hope its not the Crider. Please Honda!

Yeah even I got the SMS from Honda with the link.

The funniest part was, when I called the Pride Honda Dealer here to ask more details about the launch and display vehicles, the lady was saying that the launch is not now, and it may be in December or January, and she went on arguing about that.

When I said that I'm damn sure about it and that I even got the SMS and link from the Honda, she backed off and said she'll confirm and call back.

I don't understand how their own SALES PEOPLE are so unaware about their own much awaited car launch.

What are the HONDA guys doing?

She is referring that the official launch with prices will be in late DEC or Jan which is mostly correct. Honda will today only "unveil" the car to the world. No prices will be announced.

The same happened with me yesterday

While taking my car after service, asked the guy present and he said it won't come before January. I told him it's getting launched tomorrow but he wasn't convinced, so I let it be.

This kind of a disconnect is very strange, specially since the City has been their bread and butter product before the Amaze.

I am afraid she's right here. Today is the Global 'Unveil' of the 2014 Honda City. Pricing, variants, features, and other details will be revealed during the actual launch, which is scheduled to take place sometime in Dec-Jan, like she had told you. And deliveries are expected to start from Feb, as per earlier reports.

Its a global unveiling so these guys might not be updated really on that since it makes little difference to them on ground as of the moment.

WOW - Honda is indeed pulling a coup on us! City has been removed from their website and they are not mentioning the model name - just "unveiling of an iconic model".
Here's hoping its indeed a City next gen, and not Cringer or even Civic.
India needs a car from Honda between 8 - 13L bracket and City is most suited, given the brand recall and loyalty associated!

Expect nothing more than an array of pictures! This is just an unveil. And i would be surprised if they even show the interiors today. IIRC, Figo, New Fiesta had similar unveils and booking strategies, where no features / engine options / dimensions were spoken of.

And, I am not going to buy any car in recent future, nor do I have the cash to buy a City, still don't understand why I am having butterflies in my stomach anticipating the new City'14 Heck! I did not feel this way even when my exam results were going to be revealed

Guys I am at the venue and just happened to see the cars backstage. Boy oh boy! Pretty sure it is going to be similar to the lines of what we have been seeing. We'll find that out in some time.
