If its going to look the way its inspired, then the SX4 better watch out. However SX4 has a chink in its armour, the 1.9L DDIS engine, yes the 1.9 and not the 1.3

@BUSA, I think globally the SX4 comes with a 1.6 DDIS engine. Also a fiat product with 100+ bhp and probably a very fun amount of torque
EDIT: it has both a 1.6 and a 1.9 diesel listed on wikipedia
details on the engines here JTD engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Honda does have a 2.2 i-CTDi Diesel engine in UK for the new CIVIC. Do we see a variant coming in India?

I should think not. The Jazz has an MPV-ish stance. The new City will hopefully have a better integrated boot.

The Jazz concept at the expo:

There is news that New Honda City will be priced a lil higher
cos the Jazz on road price for base version wont be less than 6 lacs on road.
Lets hope Honda doesnt hike the price much. Suprised that New Honda City
official pics havent been unveiled as Honda is gonna launch it worldwide in few months.

If the new City is going to be inspired by this design, then it's going to be a 'CHARTBUSTER'.
The tail looks similar to that of the Supra.

How is the more powerful DDIS engine a chink in the SX4s armour? I would think its an advantage over the petrol Honda City.
