The new Honda Genia has been officially revealed in China at the Chengdu Motor Show. The Genia gets a notchback-like design and is based on the current-gen City sedan sold in India.
The new hatchback gets Honda’s signature styling up front, partly inspired by the Concept B, shown in 2014. It gets Honda’s ‘Solid Wing Face’design, also seen recently on the Avancier SUV. The thick gloss black grille holds the large Honda logo and has a chrome strip that runs across it which lowers down to the chin in the centre. The headlights get projector units along with LED daytime running lights. They do resemble the ones seen on the City sedan sold in India.
The side profile of the Honda Gienia is City-like but features a truncated boot design. The Gienia looks very stylish when viewed from the back, thanks to the new boomerang tail-lamps like those on the Civic, a neatly sculpted bumper with subtle chrome accents and a distinct rear spoiler as well. The hatchback will be powered by a 1.5-litre petrol motor and will get the option of a CVT gearbox.
While the hatchback is expected to launch in China sometime in the near future, there is no news about Honda bringing this model to India as of now.
