Posted on: Apr 20, 2016 - 10:11am IST

Reported to arrive during festive season of 2016.

Honda Cars India is expected to introduce a facelift for its best seller, the Honda City, in the upcoming festive season. Drawing cues from the China-spec Honda Griez (City), here’s what IAB’s graphic artist, Shoeb R Kalania, thinks the new City could look like.

Although this is a speculative look at the styling, one can expect a bolder grille with more chrome embellishments on the grille, larger projector headlamps with LED DRLs and a sportier bumper, while the rear-end could feature revised taillamp clusters.

Inside, Honda could limit the changes to equipment upgrades and seat upholstery. As for engine lineup, the new City is likely to retain the 1.5-liter i-VTEC and i-DTEC engines. The gearing could be altered for better fuel efficiency though, taking the City closer to the Maruti Ciaz, which holds the title of the most fuel efficient car in its class.
