That ~115 bhp engine is a big step forward, as is the paddle shift. Hope they price it right though and have no illusions about the segment of this car.

Nice specs, especially the 118 PS part

But 14" disks inside 15" rims ?

8.5 ex-Showroom ? Now that surely is tempting. I hope it turns out to be true

Great job Sid!!

Bravo Sidindica Bravo,

Keep it coming

New City with a 1.5 Vtec, fully loaded (stop cribbing abt the alloys)
cheers: Cheers if the 8.5 lacs is true.
This means that the AT will hover around 9 lacs. Great Stuff.
If the FE figures are even close to the existing City (wont be easy) they've definitely got a run away sucess in their hands. Guess the 2 monh waiting period starts.

Sid will the lower price variant have the 1.3,
Just imagine if Honda decides to rock the boat with the 1.3 City,
as a 7.5 lac lower variant

Well the competition is not going to sit simply anyways.
Cmon Maruti, Diesel SX4 @ 8 lacs, Please.

So its 116.2 bhp motor. Nice, really nice, and now good bye Fiesta.
The latest technology utilized.

I hope that ground clearence issue would be sorted out. But with this low clearence, this is not possible. Honda should have worked more here.

Any idea on kerb weight ?

So does this mean non independent ? I was looking forward to some better independent setup.

Sid - man you are amazing! First Vista, and now this. Can you do a similar scoop on Linea and score a hat-trick?

Hmmm... a 1 L premium over the existing City. This will be about 9.5L on road for manual. However, compared to the existing City Vtec is this great value. The GC is still 160 - disappointing.
