IndianAutosBlog.com reader Sivakorn S from Thailand sent in these brochure scans of the Honda City facelift. We saw the City facelift coming in early 2011 and with the prices slashed recently, sales of the City picked up to regain first position from the VW Vento. But with another hike in petrol price, the cosmetic refreshment for the City will be welcomed with open arms.
The front-end is inspired by the Accord with horizontal slabs of chrome that will put wide smiles on Indian faces. The bumper is new as well with revised air intake and fog lamp housing. The tail lamp is redesigned with inspiration from the City concept shown at an Australian Motor Show in 2008. The rear bumper now has reflectors on the corners. The wheels have additional spokes and the communication color has changed.
Honda has not bothered fiddling with the interior layout. The Thai brochure shows two interior color schemes with the orange background lighting retained from the outgoing model. There is no room, not even for speculation on a diesel engine since that isn't expected until the end of 2013.
