Will launch in India in the weeks ahead.
A video walkaround of the 2017 Honda City has surfaced from Thailand, where the facelifted model began retailing last week (January 12) at prices between 550,000 baht to 751,000 baht.
This is the first major facelift for the mid-size sedan since its launch in 2014. With a more premium look, featuring new LED headlamps with bolder LED DRLs, redesigned chrome grille inspired by the Honda Civic, new bumper with fog lamps, 16-inch diamond cut alloy rims (15-inch alloy rims in middle grades) and a sportier rear bumper, the new City is the first model action of Honda Thailand in 2017.
Inside, top-end variants come with speed-sensing auto door lock, a tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, cruise control, 60:40 split folding rear seats, LED cabin lights, a 6.8-inch touchscreen audio system and a new reverse parking camera. It retains the all-black interior and cabin design of the 2016 model.
The Thai-spec Honda City is available with a 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine delivering 117 hp at 6,600 rpm and 146 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The base ‘S’ grade is fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while an EarthDreams CVT is optional in ‘S’ and standard in other grades.
The new Honda City has reached dealer stockyards in India and will be launched as the Honda City ZX in the coming weeks.
