Smile New Honda City in Third Quarter of 2007

Honda Siel Car will launch a new variant of the hugely successful sedan, City, equipped with new safety features such as anti-lock brake system, already available with its high-end models (Civic, Accord and CRV), to grab a higher market share.
City with 3.8 per cent market share in the A3 mid -car segment remains the highest selling car. It sold 29,308 units till December 2006. Ford Fiesta comes second best with 2.7 per cent market share (20,431 units sold till December last year).
The new City variant is expected to be priced around Rs 800,000 (ex-showroom Delhi), slightly higher than the other three variants currently available, and could be out in the third quarter (July- September) of CY07.
Masahiro Takedagawa, president, HSCI, told Business Standard: "We have already upgraded all other models (Accord and CRV), with only City left out. To meet customer demand and maintain our leadership position in the mid segment, we will add some new safety features in City."

HSCI also plans to roll out in the next two years a new small car, currently being developed at its R&D centre at Tochigi near Tokyo in Japan. The car will be manufactured at the company's new facility in Rajasthan.

Says a lot about the Fiesta. Great to hear its second best in the segment. In the testdrive report, we had predicted that it is a very competitive package.

Nice find navdeep but think there is already a similar thread and this discussion should continue there.

it was speculative about the launches. I thought may be a new thread but not a bad idea to merge.
