Honda has postponed the launch of the City facelift to 2017. The company has taken this step so that it can take on the new Hyundai Verna, which is likely to be launched in 2017.

The facelifted City, which has been codenamed 2GC, will compete with the next generation Verna, which was earlier expected to be launched in October this year. But now, Hyundai plans to launch the car sometime in 2017.

It is rumoured that the refreshed City facelift will use parts from the Honda Greiz, which is sold in China. The Greiz is built by Dongfeng-Honda. Some of the styling features on the car include a restyled front fascia, a redesigned grille, restyled headlamp clusters with LED daytime running lights, new LED taillights and reworked boot lid with an integrated spoiler.

At present, the sales of the City are strong. The car has been the best-selling sedan in the C2 segment.
