Me and my wife's dream car is a black CIVIC which I know is quite distant and will remain a dream for a few years. We seriously look forward to buy the NNHC in end 2009. We would be disappointed if a cheaper to buy and run iDSI is not available.

Thats a quote for Singapore. Being a NHC and a NHC ZX owner, I wont believe any news till its official from Honda. As they always alter something coming into India.

Hmmm .. and Honda has already started airing iVTEC ads on TV. Indication of a new range of engines for the City?

Reminds me of the Ford Dura campaign.

One interesting observation

Getz 1.1 , 1.3 both have 65 bhp ,both felt almost the same when you drive around 50kmph , but put the cars above 90- 100 and


1.1 engine starts telling I am dying

1.3 still goes ahead.


So may be on paper 1.3 ivtec has 100 bhp but we have to see the performance above 100kmph compared to 1.5 Idsi.

Only time can tell :-)

1st of all City is just going to be bigger & better than the present NHC.
Yes the Scooped City does have similar grill like the Accord. But obviously
everything else looks different. I guess your mistaken. Kindly compare the pics again .

I too feel the same way.

It can't bee too big or high end as it will then encroach into Civic territory.

On second thoughts, since Honda has now discontinued the lower variationof Civic, may be they are making space for the high end, read 1.5L iVTEC, engine for New City.......cheers:

Well, this has been my observation that after discontinuing the lower version of Civic, they are obviously making space for NHC.

Here their strategy will be, launch a car with lower engine. Then bring in a new engine and charge extra.
