So much of beige? I don't think there was this much in the current City. One would feel like sitting in a crap hole in this one.

What about price? How much is the hike?

What dull and drab alloys!

Default Honda Beige!

Full beige upholstery on doors with aluminium finish for handles and window control panel! This colour combination looks pretty odd in pictures. They should have given the black finish at top part of the door panel. This would have made the door handle look much better. Are we Indians so crazy for this beige colour?

The alloys are a bit of a let down. My 2002 Accent has the same!

So the remaining question is the Price. How much is this "upgrade" going to cost the poor consumer?

Biege looks bit too bright and saturated(too much yellow?) to my eyes. I still prefer muted biege in the current ANHC.
Silver finish on the handrest and the door lock/extneding insert looks garish!
Only the blower knob has changed where as temperature and position know remain as they were. It looks as if someone had lost the blower knob and put it from some other model.

Wait! Don't be in a hurry. That will come as part of 2010 upgrade. They are easing Indian customers in to the 15lakhs price target for ANHC.

Eventually ANHC 2012 will have all the features expected of a C+ segment cars with the D segment pricing.

Agreed. Beige and silver combination, esp on the doors, doesnt look too good (atleast in photos).

Anyone who has seen the car in real...does this Beige-silver combination look good in the real car?? Does the new interiors give a richer feel than the current ANHC?

Maybe they should call it the City beige. I will want to get new seat covers to reduce the beige-ness of the car if I buy one.
