Airbags , ABS on all versions ? Or maybe with the VTec only, and as an option in the EXi, GXi ?

Normally_Crazy seems pretty confident for around Diwali. From what he claims that he let the cat outta the bag with regards to the Civic, I'd be wiling to put my money where his mouth is!

NHC with ABS and airbaga and vtec engine would be a better deal then sx4 only if priced similarly or max 8 lacs , if more than that,no way....

The company has made clear in a response to the magazines that they dont plan to give VTec in GXi. Should we have an edit in the thread title?

Why cant they separate the Body trim versions from the Engine requirements. Say I want a VTEC engine with LXi body trim etc. Manufacturing wise, there are no cost implications, but marketing wise there could be, cos right now, they are forcing me to buy hanky-panky stuff if I am interested in the VTEC engine (the very fact that I am having to pay for something that I dont need, is wrong)

The CVT should come with VTEC engine, perfect blend of power and FE.

Hi everyone,

I am planning to buy a City. I was planning on a Fiesta, but the vote at home went for NHC.

The thing is I need the car and waiting would be a pain. I would have to do the daily trips with friends/ricks. I would be buying the base model (budget constraints). My wife is of the opinion we should go in for the current Exi and save us the trouble of waiting for 3 more months, since the base model probably won't have ABS/Airbags, and the other changes will probably be cosmetic. Is this line of reasoning correct, or will Honda be generous enough to give these safety features in all models, in which case I will pull my socks up and wait.

TIA,
Simran

Kudos to N_C, he told us way back that it would happen by Diwali time for sure. And lo there was an article in yesterday's TOI (31st aug) detailing that Honda India plans to come out with a variant with abs, airbags and integrated music system which they will place between the Gxi and Vtec!!

wonder if they will offer this variant with CVT too or not?? Eh N_C??

Default Its finally official, NHC to get abs and airbags

After much speculation, this months autocar (sept. issue pg 27) confirms that the nhc will offer ABS and airbags. The vtec really needs it. About time honda !!! Its estimated to be at an additional cost of Rs. 30k. Hope its not another rumour.

Mod's Note: Search and use an existing thread on the subject rather than opening new ones again and again. Threads merged.

What is the point really, Exi & GXi still come without Safety Features. :(

Honda should have it all around the models ( or the least just leave the Base Exi Model )
