I like the tailamps....does that exhaust tip come standard on the Vtec? It looks really good.... and I see the 2.4 accord with the v6 accord alloys!?! They made 16 inchers std on the 2.4 too?

Does the new Zx version have revised suspesnion. The details on the mags are contradictory. One crib about the NHC is a poor suspension. Let it not be a marketing gimmic and a diversion from people want to buy an optra considering its smooth ride.

Mags say that the new car has

Revised headlampts, tail lamps,
instrument cluster (dim, auto-illuminate etc.,)
fabric
tuned/modified suspension

8.09 L is the ex-showroom price in Bangalore. It will be roughly 9.25 L on-road.

That's still peanuts compared to the old Vtec which was priced close to 10lakhs (ex-showroom).

And just look at the new Vtec, it isn't just a chassis with an engine, you're getting so much more for your money. Ofcourse, all that does lead to extra weight which brings it's power to weight ratio down to 94bhp/ton (the old City 1.5 itself was 101.52 bhp/ton).
