In fact, the Ford EcoSport, which we are so kicked about, initially started testing in Brazil. But now there is a reverse scenario.
The facelifted Honda was first launched in Thailand and then in India quite a while back. Now, the City heads westwards to Brazil. Our good friends at Autossegredos have caught a lightly camouflaged test mule of the City in Brazil.
Honda only made minor modifications in the City which include:
- Front chrome grill
- New front bumper
- Rear bumper with reflectors
- New tail lamps
- ORVMs with turn indicators
- 10 spoke alloy wheels on the top model (V) and 5 spoke alloy wheels on the lower models
There will certainly be changes made to engine because the fuel that used in Brazilian markets has a high percentage of ethanol. The City will compete against Chevy Cobalt, Nissan Versa and Fiat Siena . When on sale, it will cost 54 000 Brazil reais which is somewhere around INR 15 lakhs.
