1. ABS
2. SRS (Airbags)
3. New Alpine audio system (NOT INTEGRATED)
4. Leather seats.
5. New Steering Wheel (Due to SRS airbags).

Might be some other minor cosmetic modifications. I have been invited to inspect the car at Jaipur and also test drive it (though RTO approval yet to come--is it needed again?). The car was recieved there at 4 pm today and I had this talk at

Expected increase in price?? (If HONDA prices it aggresively, I'd say 20,000 or less, otherwise upto 55000 or so).

No ABS and airbags in the Idsi models. How will they compete with SX4, lets see? I think they are trying to compete only with the SX4 Zxi Leather version.

If they increase the price of this VTEC then the H1 of the Corolla becomes an exceptional buy for the price.

WHAT DISCOUNTS CAN I EXPECT ON THE COROLLA H1? I want to buy 1 immediately (delivery latest by 25th Sept or so). Which colour of the Corolla H1 is good? (No black, plain white or dark colours please)

According to an early morning conversation between me and Honda guys here, the new NHC (ABS + Air bags) is supposed to be launched today. Approx price increase ~ 50000 Rs.

@Dippy - thanks bro.

They are due to replace the City by 2008 anyway, so just killing time.
Exactly, Honda just wants to claim 'me too solution' for safety features, doesn't look like they are aggressive to compete against other players providing safety. Lets wait and see who wins.

Sir, if you read the following link, people are buying City ZX in large numbers without any of these. As per this link, they sold 3095 City ZX cars in August.

Truly, those number don't lie right?

Hey man, thats a cool link. Sure NHC has its fans. If NHC-ABS-AirBags can beat SX4, why doubt about NHC+ABS+Airbags?
