Honda City facelift leaked in undisguised spy shots


The upcoming Honda City facelift has been leaked in a new set of undisguised spy shots. The images reveal the car's redesigned front and rear ends. Media reports suggest that Honda will be launching the new City in India in January 2017.

The new spy shots indicate that the facelifted City gets most of its changes at the front. As suggested through the previous teaser images, the car comes with a new set of headlamps, a wider front grille with a chrome bar in the middle and a redesigned front bumper. The top-end variant will come with full-LED headlights as well as LED DRLs. The only visible change to the side profile is a new set of alloy wheels, while the rear gets a new bumper, redesigned tail lights and a boot lid-mounted spoiler.

On the inside, the City facelift will come with a new infotainment system that will be co-developed with Blaupunkt. This system will be compatible with Android Auto and a mobile mirroring app and will also feature voice guidance for navigation. The dashboard design is expected to remain identical to the current model.

In India, Honda is expected to offer the facelifted City with the same 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines as the current model. Once launched here, the City facelift will compete against the Maruti Ciaz, Skoda Rapid, Hyundai Verna and Volkswagen Vento.
