Had this been the US, someone would have sued them

Vipul , Thats quite common from any car manufacturer. Dealer will obviously look at clearing his old stock. Even when Honda officials were questioned about Scoop of New City they just said there is no immediate plan in future .
Cool down and just lets wait for the launch.

If you surf long enough on this forum you will realize that NC has predicted Honda launches quite accurately so I will take his word on it.

Some pics from Autocar UK, which has a first drive report. Looks like the dashboards are slightly different in the Jazz and the City, in contrast to the current Jazz/City which share quite a few parts (front door, dash, windscreen, mirrors) apart from chassis/engines.

More of exterior changes, can be termed as face-lift rather than "all new next generation model".
- Still no climate control (Swift and Dzire have it!!)
- Minor change in ICE.
- No change in the speedo design. After Civic's awesome interiors, the general expectation is definitely higher.
- No Leather seats (may be an anniversary edition will have it )

Let's wait for the Indian edition to see more in flesh. As of now, its advantage Sx4.

I totally agree with Karan. They cant disclose the official launch unless their stock is cleared. And most important they havent launched it yet in any other country. So the only thing left on our part is PATIENCE........ lets play it over cards

While there is no second opinion on the fact that Civic's interiors are awesome, we shouldn't forget that City is a segment lower and hence will be designed accordingly.

Yup, I do agree though that climate control should be provided.

Advantage SX4? I don't think so, at least not yet!

Guys I was just surfing the different Honda websites in south east asia I noticed Jazz 2009 is expensive than the current City. I presume G3HC should be expensive than Jazz which will make it costlier than current NHC.

1st lets not expect too much from City after Seeing Civic interiors.
Since City has to be priced below 10 L bracket you cant expect
anything close to Civic interiors. Climate control will be missed for sure.
You cant call this a facelift when this looks lightning years ahead of the inverted boat ( No offence to NHC owners) . We have no clue about leather seats so lets just wait till wait for the actual launch before we discuss about its features.

I think he meant they offering the alloys at that rate for City ZX. But i thought City ZX GXi started coming with alloys after the limited 10th edition.
