In terms of design and size, the Brazilian City would be exactly like the Indian model. At 4,440 mm in length, the new City measures the same as the previous car, however, engineers have enhanced the wheelbase by 50 mm to 2,600 mm. The car also features a 40 mm increase in shoulder room and 10 mm increase in headroom. Production of the new City will take place at Honda Brazil’s Sumare plant.
