MOD NOTE:

Henceforth please refer to this car as either the '09 HC or Gen3 Honda City (as in 3rd generation).
NNHC or 'New New Honda City' is not correct English.

Who cares for a Ferrari? This is Honda, I am surprised that you are not excited . People are waiting to get their hands on the next generation car

You have referred as its just a Honda. Well its a Honda and I dont think Honda is any less in technology as compared to Ferrari. It all the about the price which matters. Do you get to drive a Ferrari at Rs 20 Lakhs. Remember Honda produces the best petrol engine and all its cars are Highly fuel efficient.

Thats the question which is on everyone s mind. Will it be pushed to next level? Honda will surely not let SX4 eat away slice of its sales . But seeing the Civic E launch Seems like Honda is not intending 09 HC top end to pushed to Corolla level.

Default Will the 3rd Gen City have CVT?

I am planning for a City CVT. Any information on the transmission in 3rd Gen City is appreciated.

why are you selling honda brand. i have 3 honda citys. i like them not so much that i shall hype. i drive a cvt daily thats only thing what i love. if you own a honda you will know how cheap their metal is. its horrid. i said ferrari showroom opening and not ferrari. and yes you can drive a ferrari for 500 pounds or buy one under 10000 pounds which is 8 laks or so.

Might be just a Honda... but most of us waiting can afford to buy one or hope to buy one in the future. As far as Ferrari is concerned I wouldn't be too excited about that... as neither can I afford one... or hope to buy one in the future (unless ofcourse someone gifts it to me or I win a big lottery or something). I, for one, am waiting for it that's why I am excited.

Default Worth waiting for a Honda

Its worth waiting and getting exited about any Honda launch, specially the Honda City, as Honda has always delevered a World Class product. Honda Civic is a good example.

Yep - Civic E is a clear indication that City will stay in the same level. I feel anyone planning to buy a VTEC should wait for the launch as the new car might work out to be cheaper. EXI/GXI is a different story though.

With the launch of Civic E, I am confused where will they put G3HC ( Generation 3 Honda City ). Initially I thought they wont discontinue the present G2HC ( Generation 2 Honda City ) as its immensely successful product.

But by the positioning of Civic E , they may end up discontinuing the G2HC, just like they did by discontinuing the G1HC ( Generation 1 Honda City ).

I dunno what made you feel the G2HC would continue! The G1HC was the best of the lot , but still Honda discontinued it. I guess per City model has life cycle of 5 years. G2HC was launched in 2003 if im not mistaken. With the launch of Civic E just before City s launch is quite evident that Honda doesnt want City to compete with Corolla. With two engines rumoured to be launched ( 1.3 VTEC & 1.5 VTEC) , I feel G3HC will be available from 8-10 lacs range.
