1) Is this really city?
Even i am confused BUTTTT the new accord i spotted being tested in noida also had the same kinda number plates (UP registered ,Red) so maybe this is the NNHC.
About the looks.....am waiting for some pics with better watermarking.

Well the only car manufacturer who has a plant in Noida aka UP 16 is Honda (apart from the defunct Daewoo). And since we already know that red plates are only issued to manufacturers for testing vehicles, there can't be any doubt that this is a Honda product.

From the side view, vehicle looks more spacious than existing NHC, somewhere the boot and tail lamps resemble the Fiat Petra - my opinion, very dull front if you ask me. Can't think Honda will leave behind the jazzy looks and go for some plain designs.

I have my own doubts of this being the NNHC, the design looks more of an European car. As fo now we have to go with the temp regn UP16 and Honda having their factory in UP. Also did some research on google, Tata Motors also has a factory in Lucknow ! So is their something cooking at Tata Motors? Hmmm..

This thread is getting very interesting. Thanks to Awarty, drive safe buddy.

Cheers..

That is the New Honda City with Noida plates, no doubt...although I heard that they have a new plant getting ready to open in Jaipur, RJ from which the new Fit/City will emerge.

Cool

we can't even see the pictures properly, especially the grille which would tell if it a honda or not.

The grill looks same like accord, but its small in size... the cars that are lined up for the launch has Muscular front look, the new corolla and even the lancer and already launched accord.

The front looks a lot like Honda's hydrogen FCX...


The rear though struck me as very new corolla-ish

Firstly, the title of this thread should read as New NHC or NNHC .

The interiors and the A-pillar's are like the NHC. But it looks substantially bigger then the NHC. Does that mean it's going to come with a higher price tag?

Possible, since they have taken out the S variant of the Civic! Just imagine what the pricing would be for the VTec.

A lot of rear tail lamp inspiration has been taken from Toyota Vios IMO.

That Tata factory is Lucknow is for commercial vehicles only. Passenger vehicles are only produced in Pune until now.
