This looks like a real beauty. Only hope for competition is Diesel engines i guess.

IMHO, the grill design looks a lot like it was borrowed off the Accord

According to ACI - This car will have same engines like the Jazz- 1.3 Vtec 100 PS & 1.5 VTEC 118 PS( i aint sure about the PS). Surely it ll be detuned a bit for us. But still Great going by Honda to go back to 1.3 & 1.5 Options. In this way they can cover 8-10 lacs range . Further ACI mentioned that this car will be launched in Nov end and mostly it will be a global launch . Thailand will also
get same time in Nov end! I though Thailand will get 1st in August.

Default Did CNN-IBN copy things from team-bhp?

Scoop! The third-generation Honda City : IBNLive.com > Videos

This video shows the new Honda City and the image looks like it was taken off from team-bhp. One image is of the spy shot and the other image is of the photoshop work done by vivek. Have they taken permission from team-bhp or Vivek?

Nov end?? I am supposed to be finalising a sedan in the range of 9 to 10 L this month for myself( as it is the search has already taken a few months). I am caught in a dilemma on whether I should wait for 6 more months. I was rather hoping that Honda would release by Aug/Sept in India, Looks like I have some tough choices to make.

Autocar's artist impression and our very own spy pics published with due credit given to awarty and TBHP!!

They have mentioned that the car will come with 1.3 and 1.5 iVTEC engines, although they are sure about the 1.3. Power output is 100 and 118 bhp respectively!! So, will this revive what was started by the OHC? Wait and watch is our only option.

There is no chance you can expect this sedan before Oct. All of us were expecting by Oct. But ACI did mention about Nov end launch. Usually ACI is spot on about launch details. I guess you should somehow manage to wait for 5 months.

I think that the new engine will be the same as available in Jazz in UK.
The 1.5 ltr engine has bore X stroke dimesnion of 73 X 89.4 mm/

The link is :All New Jazz ::: I'm So Jazz :::

I think that this 1.5 ltr engine will be available.

This is the engine presently available in Jazz in thailand. I think that this is coming.

Guys,

The front grill in Awarty's last photograph shows a Peugot like logo (rather than the devine H)!!!

Anand from where did Peugeot come into the pic?? The Honda badge is covered by some plastic. Even the headlamps side is covered with same plastic .

ACIs rendering of the side panels looks different in each. Hope it looks like this . Front end looks inspired from last gen Accord or present gen Civic.
