Honda City available in 11 variants

14 Feb 2017 Honda Cars India Limited, wholly owned subsidiary of Honda Motors Japan today launched 2017 special edition of its flagship City Sedan in India at the starting price of Rs 8.50 lakh for the base petrol S MT variant. The top of the line fully equipped ZX MT diesel variant is priced towards the higher end customers at Rs 13.57 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The car comes with the host of cosmetic changes both on the exterior and interiors; however, there is no alteration on the mechanical and suspensions front. New Honda City continues to be powered by 1.5-liter diesel and petrol engines. The output of both the engines remains same at 119PS/145Nm for petrol and it 100PS/200Nm for the diesel version. Both manual and CVT gearbox will do the duty to channelize the power to the front wheels of the car in the manual while diesel version is mated with 6-speed manual only. 2017 Honda City takes on the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Skoda Rapid, Hyundai Verna and Volkswagen Vento amongst others.

The best selling sedan in the C segment, Honda City has been restyled and laden with more features for its 2017 model. It also gets an updated variant line-up now.  On 14th February 2017, the company launched the car at starting price of Rs 8.49 lakh for the Petrol line-up and Rs 10.75 lakh for the diesel (prices ex-showroom, Delhi). 

The 5 variants on sale are S, SV, V, VX and ZX, out of which the base S trim is available only with the petrol engine. Also, top end ZX is the new trim that comes for petrol automatic or diesel manual but not petrol manual. Honda has added a number of new features to the new variant ZX and this will help it to attract the buyers who are always looking for a generously loaded car. 

New Honda City has been updated with quite a few design modifications that give it a new and more contemporary look. And still, it does not lose its identity. The bumper in front is more sharp-edged and there is a larger honeycomb grille giving the face a wide grin. The chrome slat on the grille is sleeker now but it protrudes out more prominently than in the outgoing model of the car. It touches the all new headlamps that have LEDs for VX and ZX variants. The headlamps have 3 reflectors of which two on the outer side are for low beam and one on inner side is for high beam. LED daytime running lights are standard for the entire line-up of variants.

In the ZX trim, Honda is also providing LEDs for fog lights, the tail lamp cluster, the boot lid spoiler stop lamp and even on the ORVM indicators. These bits for bright illumination give the sedan a distinctive look and will help in getting attention. 

There are 16 inch diamond cut alloy wheels for the top spec trims and they also have wider 185/55 R16 tyres enhancing the stance of City. The update for wheels is the only big change for the side profile. At the rear end of the car there are only some minor tweaks. The chrome strip that runs across the tail lights is still the same but the lower bumper has been modified.
How is it on the inside? The layout of dashboard stays largely unchanged but facelifted Honda City gets a new ‘Digipad’ infotainment system.  Offered in V, VX and ZX variants, this system has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen that comes with good resolution and easy to read icons. The system is also easy to use and includes new features such as Wi-Fi support, MirrorLink smartphone integration, navigation with real-time traffic data, and 1.5 GB of onboard storage. It brings two USB slots, two micro SD card slots and an HDMI port. 

Steering can be adjusted for tilt in all trims and reach adjustment features in VX and ZX. The makers have added a button for voice commands to the set of phone control buttons. The engine stop start button is new although we liked the one on old model better. Keyless operation is standard for top three trims. Internal rear view mirror (IRVM) is wider now with day and night IRVM being standard for all variants. However, auto-dimming IRVM with a frameless design comes only with VX and ZX.

The facelifted Honda City is now a more premium sedan with soft touch plastics and chrome touches on the dashboard. Its conventional strengths in form of comfortable seats, legroom for rear seat occupants and the flat floor are still the same in new version.

You also get an assortment of safety features. These include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX seats for all the variants. The top end trim additionally gets side and curtain airbags as well. There is no ESP or traction control which customers do expect at this price point for a premium sedan. 

Mechanically there are no changes in the City facelift. It is still powered by the same engines. There is 1.5 litre i-DTEC unit that generates 100 hp and 200 Nm of torque. The petrol engine is 1.5 litre i-VTEC that has 119 hp and 145 Nm of torque.

Honda claims that it has added more insulation to reduce the NVH level for the diesel. And even though there is some improvement as we later noticed in our test drive, the diesel clatter still remains. This has been a noisy engine.

The transmission options are also unchanged. The diesel engine is coupled with 6-speed manual transmission and petrol has options for 5-speed manual and 7-step CVT automatic gearbox. The rising inclination towards automatics in India and preference for diesel sedans demand an automatic option with diesel too but City facelift does not have it. We may see the combination in its next model.

With its premium car image, performance, comfort and reliability Honda City has done well in the segment and the changes that the restyled 2017 version brings will help in furthering the sales. There will be purchasers going for the top end ZX variant.

The only disappointment is price. The City continues to be the most expensive car in its category with ZX variant being about Rs 1.2 lakh more expensive than the corresponding trim of Hyundai Verna. When compared to the top end Maruti Ciaz, it is Rs 4 lakh costlier. And so there are options that make the City feel expensive.  In addition to the appealing package that Honda has prepared for the facelifted sedan, it will have to use the brand image built over years to strengthen the marketing for City.
