New Honda City 2018 Facelift front

Based on Honda’s ‘Exciting H Design’ philosophy, the Honda City facelift shares several design bits with the new Civic and Accord.

Honda was among the several foreign manufacturers to make inroads in India towards the end of 1990s. And while the Japanese auto giant has rolled out several models all this time, Honda City sedan been the most successful car which was first introduced in 1998. Honda had launched new-generation City in 2014, which was followed by a facelift in 2017. Like the previous models, the City facelift retains the number 1 spot in the mid-sized segment despite increasing competition. The Honda City 2018 carline is currently available in both petrol and diesel engine options in manual and CVT variants priced in the range of Rs 8.71 lakh to Rs 13.82 lakh.

The City facelift comes with several features cosmetic upgrades in-line with Honda’s new design tenet. The Honda City 2018 model gets better in visual terms, thanks to new honeycomb grille, revised bumper, LED headlights, fog lights and reworked taillights with LEDs. Inside the cabin, the model has new 7-inch DIGIPAD touchscreen infotainment system. This system is compatible with satellite turn-by-turn navigation and Mirror-Link; however, it misses out on Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. If reports are to be believed, next-gen City will have new infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay support. Power source on the City carline include a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC oil burner. These engines get a choice between a 5-speed & 6-speed manuals along with a CVT with paddle shifters. One must note that automatic variants are offered only with petrol variants.

Interestingly, Honda has started working on the next generation model which is scheduled to be launched in early 2020.  Considering that arch rivals Hyundai Verna recently saw a generation change and Matuti Ciaz facelift is also underway, it makes sense to give City a generation leap. Although, details on the new-gen model are yet obscure, the existing model is still quite popular and rakes in healthy monthly sales.

    Honda should focus on infotenment including rear dual view camera ( wide angle and normal) and should be of very different league for brightness and clarity. Should bring rear sensors besides camera for distance sensing.

    Honda should also bring in bright lights for night driving
