Honda City has come halfway to its product life cycle. Typically Honda replaces its models every 5 to 6 years and it’s about time the City got a mid-life cosmetic upgrade. One of the readers of Autocar India, the leading automotive magazine in India has managed to take some pictures of the facelifted version of the city. The rumors of the facelift have been doing the rounds for quite some time now, and the new spy pictures only confirm that an upgrade is just around the corner.
The spy pictures show the facelifted version of the city from all angles – front, profile and rear. In its refreshed avatar, the City will feature a slightly redesigned face. The front bumper has been restyled, along with minor changes made to the radiator grille which now has chrome insertions on its edges. Some details seem to have been added to the front headlamps as well.
Apart from this, the tail-lamps have also undergone a slight makeover. The face lifted city will come with a new design of alloy wheels, all black with 10 spokes. The interiors will get a much needed overhaul too, and it wont be too optimistic to expect the inclusion of the much needed CD player as a standard equipment. The quality of materials inside the cabin is expected to improve as well. Finally, the top spec V variant will get a sunroof.
Engine and mechanicals for the car, however, will remain unchanged, and the City will continue to be powered by the 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine good for 116bhp. We expect a release this festive season, and prices to remain unchanged.
