NEW DELHI: Honda has at last taken the wraps off the exceedingly expected 2017 Honda City facelift, with a beginning cost of Rs 8.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The auto is accessible in five unique variations - S, SV, V, VX and ZX. With its overhauled rundown of components and modified styling, the City intends to recover its lost crown as the ruler of C-portion vehicles.
The organization said that it expects a "solid request" for the new model which has officially gotten 5,000 appointments in the course of the most recent ten days.
The story under the hood remains pretty much the same as the outgoing model. The car is offered with either a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel mill, which is tuned to pump out 100PS/200Nm and comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission only, or a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine, which generates 119PS/145Nm and comes with a choice of a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT.

While the ARAI mileage figures for the petrol MT and diesel MT stand at 17.4km/l and 25.6km/l (both 0.4 lower than the outgoing model), the CVT retains the same mileage of 18 km/l.
On the outside, the refreshed City gets tweaked front and rear bumpers, LED-powered headlamps, taillights, fog-lamps and brake light on the spoiler, and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The front grille gets a more aggressive makeover with a bigger Honda badge, and the front bumper now houses larger air vents.
Inside the cabin, the Honda City facelift is now offered with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with built-in GPS navigation, support for video playback, MirrorLink connectivity for smartphones, voice recognition and feed from the rear-view camera. Other features include all-LED reading lights, cruise control, automatic climate control with rear AC vents, and an electric sunroof that boasts one-touch operation for extending or retracting it.
