New Honda City is back as the country’s largest selling mid-size sedan. It has been on the best seller’s list ever since the new-gen was launched back in January 2014. In fact, since then the company has sold 1.6 lakhs units of the fourth generation car. While the competition has been trying hard, specially the Verna, they have failed to dislocate it from the pole. Honda, on the other hand, is further consolidating its lineup and has made minor changes to the variants.
City, now gets dual front airbags with rear ISOFIX and top tether anchor for child seats as standard equipment in all the variants. They were already offering ABS & EBD as standard on all the trims. Apart from this, Honda has also introduced a new VX (O) BL variant with all black interiors. Based on the VX (O) trim (which comes with beige interiors), the new variant gets an all-black dashboard with black leather seats.
The VX (O) BL, however, is available only in Premium White Orchid Pearl and Alabastor Silver exterior paint colours. Aimed to gain popularity among younger audience this new trim also comes with the 6.2 inch integrated touch screen Audio Visual and Navigation system.
The Japanese manufacturer had earlier revealed its list of models for the Auto Expo which includes their upcoming compact SUV – the BR-V. Based on the Brio-Amaze platform, the BR-V will be Honda’s answer to the Creta and Duster.
