Facelift brings new styling, upgraded equipment and more safety to the car.
The 2017 Honda City (facelift) is now on sale in India, with prices starting at INR 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Besides new styling, the facelift brings a host of new features to the compact sedan.
The 2017 Honda City is available in S, SV, V, and VX grades, as well as a newly introduced top-end ZX grade. On the outside, the facelifted Honda City features restyled bumpers, new LED headlamps, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lamps, LED tail lamps, new diamond-cut and two-tone alloy wheels in 15- and 16-inch sizes, LED license plate lamps and trunk lid spoiler with LED brake light.
On the inside, the 2017 Honda City features beige upholstery with dual-tone beige and black trims. The facelifted model gets a new 7-inch Digipad touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, voice recognition and MirrorLink. The new infotainment system has 1.5 GB internal memory and features WiFi support for internet.
Other interior changes include first-in-class soft-touch dashboard on passenger side, new white illumination in the instrument cluster, new white and red illumination for the engine push start-stop button and new LED cabin lights. The top-end ZX grade offers rear-adjustable headrests as well.
Honda has also focused on the safety of the car. The new City is equipped with dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, 3- Point ELR seat belts with pretensioners & load limiters, pedestrian injury mitigation technology, ISOFIX compatible rear seats and rear windshield defogger as standard. The ZX grade offers six airbags - dual-front, side curtain and both front side, as well as automatic headlights, headlamp auto-off timer and automatic rain-sensing wipers.
There no changes to the engines of the car. The 119 PS 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and 100 PS 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine continue as before. However, a number of new sound and vibration absorption technologies have been applied to reduce the NVH levels in the diesel model.

The petrol MT, petrol CVT and diesel MT models have a fuel economy rating of 17.4 km/l, 18 km/l and 25.6 km/l respectively.
