The Greiz is sold only in China.

A report on Autocar India states that the 2017 Honda City (facelift) will feature a design similar to the China-only Honda Greiz. The facelifted City is expected to arrive in India in H1 2017, according to an older report.

The Honda City facelift will be updated with projector headlights, a feature sorely missed on the current City.

The front fascia will get redesigned headlight clusters with projector headlights, a new grille and a new bumper. Over to the sides, the City facelift would feature diamond-cut alloy wheels in the top-end variant, whereas the rear will see all-new taillights and a redesigned bootlid, similar to the Greiz.

Inside, the Honda City facelift would feature updated trims and upholstery, though the overall design of the dashboard will carry unchanged. The touchscreen AVN system offered on the top-end VX (O) variant will be upgraded to include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the report adds.

The City facelift will continue with the current engine options, but the 5-MT could be replaced with the 6-MT on the petrol variant.

Under the hood however, the 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol engine and 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine will not see any drastic updates. However, in case of the petrol variant which currently features a 5-speed manual gearbox, Honda would use the modern 6-speed manual gearbox which is seen on the Honda BR-V. A CVT will continue for the petrol variant, whereas the diesel will have the option of only a 6-speed manual transmission.
