Honda City facelift price, variants, features

Honda has launched the City facelift in India, with prices starting from Rs 11.49 lakh and going up to Rs 20.39 lakh for the top-spec City Hybrid. The City now gets minor cosmetic tweaks overall as part of the facelift, but gets more features, new entry-level trims and ADAS safety tech as well. We take a closer look at what features are being offered with each trim of the City facelift.

Honda City facelift variant breakdown

The City facelift is available in four trims – SV, V, VX, and ZX. The 121hp, 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine is being offered on all trims. The newly introduced SV trim comes only with a manual transmission, while the V, VX and ZX trims get a CVT gearbox as an option.

Honda City facelift: rivals

The Honda City facelift competes against other midsize sedans like the Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna. Hyundai is gearing up to launch the all-new Verna on March 21, which will feature radical new looks and get two petrol powertrain options. While not a model change or even a major facelift, Maruti Suzuki recently updated the Ciaz with more features and additional paint shade options in a bid to keep it fresh amidst the competition.
