Looks exciting. New bench mark for mid size sedan..
The NHC set a benchmark for being ugliest when it was launched.

There was some news about them launching 120bhp 1.5 and 100bhp 1.3 variants. Not sure how true this is. It'l be good to have a healthy power to weight ratio for a change.

I hope it's quick and exciting.

Lots of lucky drivers are going to have fun with paddle shifts while the seth relaxes at the back !

What use is the paddle shift in Indian driving conditions where maximum average speed you can do is 10 kmph - and don't forget Honda will charge a hefty premium for the paddle shift. (if it appears in the NNHC)

When NHC was launched it took the Indian populace by storm - even after 4 years, it is still setting the sales charts on fire. Other companies fired many salvos at it but they all still remain challengers - NHC remains the champion, car of desire !

If NC (New City) can at least match the success of NHC, it would have done a tremendous job.

First you cry that the NHC is very pricey with no features and now you say whats the use of the features when the company is offering it Wah re India! Nowonder all the car companies launch all these crappy cars. wake up dude its time to move forward.
