2017 Honda City facelift price, variants explained

Facelifted Honda City is available in five trim levels; engines carry forward unchanged.

Honda has launched the updated Honda City, with prices starting at Rs 8.49 lakh for the base petrol and going up to Rs 13.56 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top trim diesel. The facelifted car gets revised styling with a new-design grille and bumper up front, tweaked light clusters, new-design alloy wheels on the top trim along with tweaks to the cabin as well.

The facelifted City gets a new top ZX trim, while the S trim now becomes the new entry-level model. The previously available entry-level E and VX(O) trims are no longer available. Interestingly, the base S trim is available with a petrol option only, while the top ZX trim – available with a petrol and diesel engine option – is not offered as a petrol manual. The SV trim now no longer offers an automatic gearbox option either.

Under the hood, the facelifted City carries forward using the same 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol and i-DTEC diesel engines, with the former offered with a five-speed manual and CVT gearbox and the latter with a six-speed manual unit only. Honda claims that the petrol engine delivers 17.4kpl when paired with a manual gearbox and 18kpl when optioned with the CVT gearbox. On the other hand, the diesel City is claimed to return 25.6kpl.
