Reported to launch this month.
The 2017 Honda City (facelift) has been seen in India for the first time, during its ad shoot, suggesting that the launch is imminent. It is reported to go on sale later this month, although Honda Cars India is yet to confirm or tease the car.
The India-spec 2017 Honda City looks identical to the model that launches in Thailand on January 12. Teasers, as well as spy shots, have revealed the latter's exterior, which draws inspiration from the new Honda Civic.
On the 2017 Honda City's design & styling, it gets redesigned headlamps (LED-powered units in the top-end model) with integrated DRLs, larger grille with bolder chrome garnish that runs into the lights, re-profiled front bumper with fog lamps and new 16-inch alloy wheels. The model also gets LED taillights with updated graphics, a revised bumper and a spoiler.
The engine lineup is likely to be untouched; the new City petrol will continue packing the 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine capable of producing 120 PS at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm at 4,600 rpm, while the City diesel, a 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engine with 100 PS. The 6-speed manual transmission could replace the 5-speed unit in the 2017 Honda City petrol variant.
