Saw a car which looked uncannily similar to the NHC-ZX in Tokyo - could not see the name though. Not sure about ABS and all, but I guess it must be coming with airbags etc here - either as standard or atleast as option.

Those who will buy the new NHC have a lot to thank Suzuki and SX4 for.

Honda City, Honda Fit-Aria all clones. They are sedan version of the hatchback Honda Fit or Jazz.
All ditto, except Indian version doesn't come with ABS/Airbags

And a white alto.

Knowing Honda, it would be real soon. See how competition results in a better deal for consumers. Now, how about someone shaking up the Accord & CRV segment also ?

Honda showroom staff in baroda say they will launch the car with ABS and Airbags in September/October, after current stocks run out. It will be priced ~20000 higher.

This months ACI has a letter from Honda saying that the news in last months ACI isint true and they dont intend to come with any new model with ABS/Airbags for Rs.20000

I guess all this is to prevent people for waiting for the New City with ABS and hence their current City's wont sell
