I totally agree on your mini SUV comment. Those cars are ridiculous. The space in the City is unbeatable. In fact, the back seat is much better than even an X1 for example if all seats are occupied!
Oops! Thanks for the correction. I drive a Linea TJet and my brother-in-law owns the City. Whenever I drive it, all I could think of is how better would the manners be if it came shod with say 195 or better still 205 section tyres.

It seems that Honda is finally taken up matters in hand and are definitely inspired by how seriously Hyundai took up Sedan / C-2 segment with Verna. A well loaded car with sweet i-VTEC engine can do wonders for City.

The launch of all new Verna is put on hold by Hyundai and they will closely watching launch of new City. It is all the more important for Honda to ensure that they don't compromise on anything including "Best in class pricing" too.

All the best Honda !

guys the ZX definitely looks like a great deal. I want to replace my city which is about 5 years old to an automatic. I was thinking of corolla AT petrol but now this is making me wonder. My budget is 20L so the Octavia (which I love) is ruled out. I don't find Cruze all that inspiring. Don't know if Honda will come out with Civic. I read on team-bhp that they won't. Any tips? Also I hear corolla is also coming with a facelift by next month. Does anyone know for sure?

There is no official news from Toyota on Altis facelift launch date in India but it is rumored that it will launch in March. With 20lacs budget you should wait for Altis facelift launch. I had taken test drive of both City CVT and Altis CVT and Altis CVT is far better with less rubber band effect. This may be due to larger 1.8 engine compared to City 1.5.

Is Honda going to offer twin airbags as standard equipment in the facelifted City? I feel it was a very regressive step to knock off the passenger airbag in the lower trims of the 2014 City offered in India.

Current City comes with Dual Airbags as Standard. Even in 2014, only the Basic E MT version didn't have a Passenger Airbag (Now it does). But that version hardly sold. I haven't seen a single E variant since launch. Not even as a cab.

Coming to updated City, I expect VX & ZX to be equipped with 6 Airbags. (Assuming VX, since ZX has been confirmed to get them). And, just like current city, other models (S, SV, V) will have Dual Airbags & ABS with EBD as standard.

This is a norm rather being a fancy feature. Any car today without Airbags (Standard/Optional) is like a Home without Roof. But, with safety being a paramount, I am dreaming of a car with more safety features then Fancy Features.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I would beg to differ here, since we have a 2015 SV variant. The reason I did not go for either the E or S is because of a lack of passenger side airbag (and of course the interiors). Twin airbags were being offered starting from the SV variant.

If you see the City from Thailand, the SV trim comes quite well loaded with a decent AVN etc:

BUT - when this comes to India, what are the chances of us getting this vs the usual ugly tiny single DIN monochrome display audio system?

I hope for a change this trend of cutting features for India alone is reversed by Honda.

Yes, you are right. Just checked the old brochure and found that E & S have only Driver Airbag. But, now they come with Dual Airbags.

Don't get confused, the SV variant of Thailand & Indian Spec City are completely different. There SV is top spec variant. There is also a SV+ variant which gets some additional kit. That SV is what VX is to us.

But, having said that even the SV in current city was decently packed with features.

Thanks RavenAvi, this is interesting. So does it mean the manual ZX version doesnt get the LED Tail lamps and the Trunklid ducktail spoiler with integrated LED lights (or is that fitted at the dealer end?) or is this the VX version?

The LED Tail lamps and trunk lid spoiler are clearly shown on the Honda Car India website (images posted a few pages back)
