Awarty great job - Bhpians are almost becoming car paparazzi. i don't understand these drivers though - if they can drive in a public road - anyone can click a picture. why bother?

Looks different from the current city - waiting for the specs - hopefully that will land soon too.

If the headlights seems to be this one in pic , that it means another modd friendly car is going to be launched !!Imagine the extent of the after market parts to be available for this CITY!

Hoping that HONDA will get to learn using projectors in their cars !!

Don't know still how HONDA manage to use projectors in CR-V type -3 version!!

But hats off to the guys who spotted this one!!

Finally, the NNHC is here, tough i still have my doubts on wether it still is the NHC.

Looks pretty civicish from the front. But whatever it is, Excellent scoop. No wonder i love T-BHP so much.

I agree, not able to make out details.

In my opinion,

The rear looks similar to old Lancer.

The front looked a compact civic with new Dacia Logan like grill.

Overall it does not share the oomph of Civic & Accord. Looks good but not unique as existing Honda city.

Nice Scoop!
Just hoping that Honda throws all the goodies at 'affordable' prices.
This one looks a lot better than the NHC.

This might have already been posted in this thread . The link at the autocar forum spy shot <a href =""> here </a>

I just compared that very very hazy photo with what has been posted here on team bhp. Watch the wheels closely (mostly the wheel caps) both look similar. The one on autocar is being claimed as NNHC, then what we have here is surely a NNHC.

I feel the current City is much better than this new one. The car looks big allright, but i feel the rear bumper is too big. The side looks similar to the exisitng city and the Front pic fully has "watermarks" on it's foreground

Is this a Honda? But then, what else could it be. The front-end has Accordish cues.

Thanks for the pics.
It has shades a typical honda every where.

Personally i am not impressed with what those pics have to say.
The dash looks very much like the City so no chance it is not.

One thing is clear, thats one car totally off my list.

NHC V 3.0 visiting Pune for ARAI certification caught willy-nilly by awarty. Bravo!
In Pic 1, rear bumper and no. plate niche with chrome lip are similar to NHC V 1.0.
In Pic 2, the rear passenger door doesn't arch over rear wheel and goes diagonally upwards - easier ingress & egress for the rear passenger (this car's sure gonna cost more!) Rear q/glass is also larger. The wheel hubs look to be from the present NHC, tire size also appears same.
Pic 3 shows aggressive front grille styling (compared to the 'smiley' front of NHC V/2.0) Low GC suggests another breaker kisser from Honda.

PS: Just curious, awarty - visiting Pune? Ur avatar subscript says Hyderabad.

If this is the new Honda City then these is not much to wait for is there. I don't fancy the looks, just doesn't feel contemporary imho, more like something designed 2-3 years ago.

And the grill is not like Honda is it? Feels like a Logan or something. Rather sad that in the 7-9 bracket there is not much to choose from in terms of a decent looker with half way good specs.

Well the cars good but somehow dont like the side profile. Looks plainish to me. Finally the city gets these types of handles. Tail Lights look a bit like Yaris

Can we atleast have the transparent watermarkings.... we can't even see the pictures properly, especially the grille which would tell if it a honda or not.
UP16 is Noida number, where the Honda factory is, so I am guessing its the new city.
