Arey forget City...every car in India is overpriced.
I just saw a TV ad here in Germany for a Renault Convertible pricing starts Euros 19,500 (12 lakh only)!!!

But yes, ABS and EBD should be offered on all versions - all models by Honda (and for that matter by everyone else). In India why do manufacturers mix safety with Luxury I don't know - ABS & Airbags only on the top end version!

Back to the topic - Civic looks awesome and so does this sketch.
Way to go Honda...

Next generation Honda City/Fit Aria

It looks like the Bonnet is broken and not closed! YOu might have seen vechicles under repair or while paining. they remove the bonnet, and it would loom like this. Messed up!

Thats actually quite an old artist impression. Its last year April. I hope so the NHC wont look like that. Honda knows they took a blow with the NHC looks. I hope they work on it and come up with something, wayyy better looking than than!

Default If this is true:Then the NNHC will be a disappoint unless

Wishing the following happens:

1) The Wheelbase is increased.

2) The fuel tank is removed from the floor. The jury is still out on that.

3) Observe the rear door curve. Doesn't give a clean cavity to enter. The door rear edge should be straight instead of wrapping around the wheel.

4) The wheel size gives a clue on the chasis strength/stiffness/class. They should increase it to bigger wheels and the suspension which can take it.

5) The front windshield rake is too much. Almost hits a tall guy's nose.

6) Increase the ground clearance.

7) Go for 3-part bumper

Yes it is. Compare the C-pillar of both the cars and you would know for sure.

If your friend can give any more details about the new city , you / he could get lot of attention as almost daily in tbhap many ppl try to find info about the NNHC and don't get any

So any any info about NNHC will be good.

That such a sweet sweet news. Can your friend provide you with any information as to what the car looks like and which engine will it be running on ?

So yet another one to be waiting for.October is a month to watch out.If the car is in production already then 3-4 months production should take care of the initial demand.In that case we can expect a launch in sept or oct08.
