The all-black interior is available on the top-end variant.

Honda Cars India today announced that dual front airbags and rear ISOFIX & top-tether anchor for child seats will be part of the standard equipment on all variants of the Honda City. The car maker also launched a new Honda City VX (O) BL grade with all-black interiors.

The feature list of the VX (O) BL is identical to the VX (O).

The VX (O) BL grade is positioned alongside the VX (O) grade. Where the latter offers beige leather seats, the former gets an all-black dashboard with black leather seats. The VX (O) BL will be offered in petrol (only with a manual gearbox) and diesel variants in ‘Premium White Orchid Pearl’ and ‘Alabaster Silver’ shades.

Honda Cars India said in a statement that the VX (O) BL grade was envisioned “in response to the younger customer’s voice”. Since its launch in January 2014, the fourth-generation Honda City has found over 160,000 buyers in India. The mid-size sedan is available with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol engine or a 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine, with the latter getting a 6-speed manual gearbox.
