Got the same reply when I checked with a dealer here in Blr. Launch in Sept and deliveries to start only by Nov....they too said they would call back once the car is available on display (pricing would touch 10lacs otr blr).

Hey people today I was speaking to one of Honda showroom guys in Bangalore as we are planning to add another Honda to our family, they are offering very good discount on the current city as the new City i-VTEC plus is getting launched in the October end. The new car will be from my younger brother, I think he is not willing to wait and might lock the deal for the Civic. The new city is priced somewhere between 9-12.5 L, we are planning for going to basic model civic and then add some stuffs to it. The sick part in buying a basic model is they are giving it with wheel caps instead of alloys spending 13.45L and getting the wheels caps? I donít think its good deal.

vinay,
just curious, what is the discount they are offering on the current City?
I also notice that they are offering decent exchange prices for existing car owners.

Some more stats on the new city :
1.3 ivtec with 101 bhp and 1.5 ivtec with 120-130 bhp with 3 variants each would be launched in India.

current cityZX has discounts of a min of 20k - depending on your nego skills you could get a better bargain since almost 100 to 200 of these are still available with the dealers here in Blr.

They are offering some cash discount and accessories on the existing city; they offered me 20k cash discount and some accessories. But as I was not interested on the existing one so did not speak more about that.

Honda would price it at about 8.5 L OTR to beat SX4. Anything more than that will not make a VFM deal for a 100 BHP car. Honda for sure likes to milk us for the big brand equity they have built but also know where to stop.....prices 8.5L - 10.5L OTR...

Hi

Regarding the discounts being offered on Honda City.

My brother went to Kamdhenu Honda in Baroda, Gujarat.

For Gxi version, he was offered a discount of Rs. 35k.

that included free insurance of Rs. 20k, corporate discount of Rs.10k and Rs.5k accessories.

When asked about new honda city, they first denied it, but when my bro told them its already in autocar and other magazine, the manager disclosed that it will take 3 to 4 months to arrive. that is in showrooms and start delivery.

According to NC, there is a good chance that the new Honda City will be launched around diwali. Production of the current model is being simmered down.

Both ACI and NC have mentioned Diwali launch. But as per few members, dealers are expecting the launch this month end itself!!

September end seems to be a very probable date though the actual deliveries may take longer. Honda's share will go to Toyota / SX4 etc if they delay it further. Nothing destroys brand equity & market share more than the absence of the product from the market. The current City is EOL product and as good as not being there. The Japanese Strategists know this for sure....
