As I said the base model will be launched in December.

ABS, Airbags etc the works - it will be fully loaded.

The NHC is dis-continued.


Don't ask me more.
Will it be as involving to drive as a OHC? i doubt it but lets keep the fingers crossed

If Honda were to continue the present City with the i-DSI engine along with the new model there is a chance that they'll introduce the new car with the 1.5 i-VTEC engine only and not bring the 1.3 i-VTEC to India. That will be a shame because the 1.3 has more power than the i-DSI and is as fuel efficient, if not more.
Also Honda's ability to continue to sell the present City in India depends on what they do in Thailand, since the kits come from there. If they continue to sell it in Thailand then the same will happen here. If not, then I seriously doubt they'll continue to sell it here. Unless of course they move the dies to their new factory in India and produce it here.

I too have a preference for older Honda designs --- but I don't think anyone can complain about the new Accord! Well, actually, I can... it's too big!!!!

Sorry, but this is lethally dangerous, and no child should be allowed to behave like this ever. It is utterly irresponsible, and the person it puts in most danger of serious injury is your own child. Strap him in a proper child seat in the back, if that is what it takes to keep him away from the controls (it's how a child of that age should travel, anyway). Please stop being such a potential danger to other road users.

Do you wear a seat belt by the way? Even if you do it will be bad for the child if you have an accident; don't forget to wave, as he flies out through the windscreen. If you don't, and he's still in the car, he'll be in the middle as that steering wheel crushes your rib cage. I wouldn't expect there to be much left of him.

This sort of thing, as you can tell, makes me mad.

1. what is your child doing sitting in the front of the car? he should be belted to a car seat in the rear seat (preferably the rear seat bhind the front passenger seat).

2. try explaining to him why it is dangerous for him to do what he is doing. children are smarter than you think. refuse to start the ar unless he moves to the back and be prepared to carry out this threat so try it on a journey that is optional (not on the way to a wedding/funeral for example).

Sorry for the OT but a child has no place in the front of the car when the car is in motion.

hey guys had visited one of the delearships in delhi.The person i had a talk to had gone for some training to the honda factory and told me that the place where the new honda is being manufactured is kept sealed and no one can enter that area easily.He told me that the nnhc would be exported from india like the i10.The nhc would be phased out when the nnhc would be launched and heavy discounts are expected on the nhc soon.The car is expected somewhere in oct in the bracket of 8-9 lakh comparable to the present city.

Honda have yet another winner there !! Can see the build quality in the picture - I can hardly see the gaps between the panels !!! Untrained eyes are fooled to believing that there is no gap !

Looks much better than the current NHC. Lets hope they price it well like they have done with the Accord.

Are those disc brakes I see on the rear wheels? I think yes!

I also had a chat with a dealer in Faridabad, offered no discounts but he claimed that the city 3G would only replace the now discontinued vtec at a similar price point, whereas the exi and gxi variants of the i-dsi would live on.

That would be a stupid move my Honda.

I think the dealer is saying this to persuade you to get the Exi or Gxi since the Vtec is already discontinued.
