Both models gain a new red colour.
Honda Japan has held two launches on the 18th of September 2015. The first is the updated hybrid variant of the Honda Grace (Honda City) with new features and body colour, and the second is a new special edition of the Honda Vezel with added equipment and styling.
Honda Grace Hybrid
Honda has added Auto Retracting Mirrors as a standard feature in all hybrid variants of the Honda Grace sedan. This feature folds or opens the wing mirrors automatically when the doors of the car is locked or unlocked, respectively.
In addition, a special navigation package is offered as a standard feature, and a new body colour Premium Crystal Red Metallic has been added to the list that already included White Orchid Pearl, Alabaster Silver Metallic, Tinted silver Metallic and Crystal Black Pearl.
The price of Honda Grace in Japan is 1,750,000 yen (INR 9.64 lakhs) to 1,966,000 yen (INR 10.83 lakhs) for the gasoline versions, and 1,950,000 yen (INR 10.54 lakhs) to 2,382,000 yen (INR 13.12 lakhs) for the hybrid models.
