New 2014 Honda City Unveiled
Honda Cars India Limited (HCIL) has unveiled the much awaited new Honda City in an exclusive world premier today. The new Honda City, now in it’s 4th generation since it’s launch in India in 1998 (7th Generation if you consider global versions) will be available for the first time with both a Diesel and a Petrol engine.
The new Honda City in terms of exterior design in an evolution over the last generation Honda City with an addition of a few distinctly placed curves and creases that make the new car look mature and luxurious as compared to it’s predecessors. From the front, the new City features a generous dose of chrome on its grille and its chrome festooned headlamp cluster. The bumper design accentuates the City’s sporting pretentions with a sculptured air dam and two large supplementary grilles that hold the fog lamp assemblies. The front fenders look muscular with a distinct line that runs all the way from the bottom of the bumper to the rear view mirrors. The Mirrors get integrated clear lens turn indicators that add to the City’s impressive feature list.
The City features 175/65 R15 tyres which appear to be too small for a car of this segment. The wheels too could have been slightly better designed as the one’s showcased today appear too plain for the City. From the rear, the large horizontally stacked tail lamps look fantastic and are connected by a large chrome accent piece that accentuates the tail gate. The tail gate itself is extremely well sculptured and is one of our favorite features on the new Honda City.
