if all those tall claims are true, the new car will have as handle traffic as smooth as the old one while thrilling us on highways. And all this while providing a better fuel efficiency than already famed current City.

Found something interesting in that link.

If you notice the cam lift/duration diagrams, the non vtec cam lift of the 1.3 seems to be less than 25% of it's vtec cam lift where as the 1.5 ltr engine has a non vtec cam lift of close to 80-85% of it's vtec came lift.

Is that a mistake? How can an engine function properly if there is such a huge diff in the cam profiles?

I didn't understand the funda behind this wierd cam design.

Silver sure looks great. Isnt it surprising that the China spy pics had a white car with a probable sun roof whereas the one launched in Thailand hasnt got either a white shade or a sunroof.

Its only on one valve, the other remains open. Switches to 12V at part load.

It seems the AHC launched in Thailand does not come with a CD player according to this first-look report. Of course it may not be the case when it is launched in India.

Another nice touch is the iPod compatible USB connector. Although the Jazz already has this, the City has a very nicely integrated system. The display section of the audio system is hinged, opening to reveal a short USB cable which will accept your iPod cable. There is a little felt-lined compartment for your iPod. Once installed, you can control your iPod via the car's audio system.

The City doesn't have a CD player, so you need an iPod, or other compatible MP3 player to take your songs with you. Still, it's nicely done.

What's with the Modulo model? Different variant? Grill is different but unsure if it looks better than the huge plastic thing on the 'normal' model.
