I am slightly uncomfortable with the width of the front grill. Not so smart, especially as shown in the second pic.

The car looks awesome. Honda is back with a bang. Just the pricing in India is awaited. I'm glad I waited for this. We were waiting to get a new car for dad and I think I know what is going be parked in my garage. A 1.5 City AT with paddle shifts .

Thats makes it 2 Hondas and 1 Suzuki motorcycle in my garage.

"It will be sold in Thailand for between 524,000 to 694,000 Thai baht.". How much difference is there in the price compared to the old one ?

Looks Great! Now we just have to wait for its India launch & hope that Honda don't resort to too much cost cutting, over the Thai Model.

Honda Begins Sales of All-New CITY in Thailand

BANGKOK, Thailand, September 10, 2008 Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (HATC), Honda's automobile production and sales subsidiary in Thailand, today began sales of the all-new CITY.

The design of the new CITY is based on the total pursuit of a compact, yet dynamic form with road presence. In addition, class-leading*1 interior space was achieved to create a cabin that surrounds the occupants with an open and secure feeling. The new CITY is equipped with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine, which is further advanced in every way, including greater output and fuel consumption. Furthermore, with Honda's unique commitment to provide both advanced safety and environmental performance, the new CITY achieves the highest levels in every area in the effort to become the new bench mark for subcompact sedans.

The first generation Honda CITY was introduced in 1996, quickly responding to the growing needs for automobiles in Asian markets associated with economic growth in the region. Today, CITY is produced in seven countries*2 and enjoyed by customers in 39 nations around the world. CITY also is becoming one of Honda's core models, along with Civic, Accord, CR-V and Jazz (Fit), with cumulative sales passing the 1 million unit mark in late May 2008.

The sales of this third-generation CITY will begin in Thailand from today and expand successively to other existing markets. Honda also envisions further expansion of CITY sales, in order to meet growing customer needs, especially in emerging markets.

Regarding production of the new CITY, HATC will support the startup of production in developing countries including ASEAN markets, India and China. Honda's automobile production capabilities in Thailand have grown continuously for more than 20 years, which is helping accelerate the advancement of automobile production in the region as a whole by providing technical support for other production operations in neighboring countries. Honda has been strongly promoting local autonomy by transferring more production and procurement functions from Japan to Thailand with the goal of strengthening Honda's production strategy and to increase local parts sourcing. In addition, increased coordination with local R&D and production engineering functions (production equipment and tooling) is supporting the advancement of Honda production operations in Thailand as the leader plant in the region. As a result, the local content of the new CITY has now reached 93% from 83% of current model.

The second HATC plant will begin operation in late October of this year, expanding the total annual production capacity to 240,000 units. HATC will also expand auto exports and technical support to other operations to enhance its role as the leader plant, and strengthen it's competitiveness in the world.

About the New CITY
Engine Drive Transmission Size (mm) Price (baht)
1.5L i-VTEC FF 5AT, 5MT 4,395 1,695 1,470 524,000 694,000

Console looks cool and one good thing is that there is no wood finish seen anywhere. Hope they maintain the same for the Indian version.
