Looks like its taken a few design cues from the SX4. The hood and the side profile looks very similar to SX4. But i wonder why the car hasn't been camouflaged.

Great work, awarthy. The rear is beamer-ish.
Car looks bigger than the NHC.

Ahhh, a sight for sour eyes!! Atleast it looks like a car instead of an inverted boat !!

Also, nice to see a Honda car without the famed "Honda badge". .. I wonder how many would buy it if they were told its not from Honda stable.

I think this car might be launched at a higher price than the current city. :(
Looks better than the present city though.

Waiting for the re-formatted pics!

Rear is good looking like BMWish , however the front grill resemebles the new Honda accord, may be Honda is trying to bring those kind of grill design in new models. Front is not inspiring. The concept photo resembled to be a small brother of Civic, but this one doesn't look like that, is this Honda city or some other model ?

Is that really the NNHC? doesnt seem like Honda styling to me.

I think the best stunning models of Honda's till date is the OHC,Type 2 OHA,and Civic rest all looks dull including the new accord

I like it. The decision of not buying an NHC VTEC back in oct/nov is looking good now!

Looks wider than the NHC from rear. The front and side pics do suggest that it is from Honda. However, it seems that the new City is all together a new design, since it is missing those continued sort of tail lights on the boot lid (those as in on the NHC, Civic and the Accord). Design on the lines of the OHC again!!?? May be some more pics will try to help.

Great pics , looks definitely like a Honda offering, the turn indicator is exactly like the one on the Civic (it is from Stanley or something like that).

Is it just me or there is no quarter glass like on the current City/Civic and the upcoming Jazz ?

No fog lamps ??? Looks more or less like the NHC (not NNHC) Exi on the exterior in terms of features

I think Honda tried to make it similar to the Vios

Great work Awarty ! Thanks for the pics ! I aint satisfied with the looks. Side and front look good. Very disappointed by the rear. It looks to simple at the rear. My decision for next car was Linea vs City. I shall wait for some more pics to decide. The front grille resembles typical design of Honda ( Accord has almost same grille)

...wish the water marking could have been a little less 'aggresive' .

Yea..good observation there. Was about to say the same thing. And i can see absolutely no provision in the bumper to fit one.

Excellent scoop. But the looks are very different from expected. Liked it from spy- pics, except for the plain rear end.

Since majority thought of 'radical' as 'bad', they seemed to have come to proper sedan designs.
