The Honda City facelift is now on sale in India, and to the untrained eye, it might not seem very different from the pre-facelift fifth-generation City sedan. But a lot has changed, especially in the features department, where the petrol City also gets features that only the hybrid variant had previously. 

Here’s a full lowdown on the changes:

The most extensive cosmetic changes are at the front. The City gets a narrower chrome strip above the redesigned grille with a diamond-chequered flag pattern. The bumper, too, gets a subtle redesign with a full-width splitter element this time around.

On the sides, not a lot has changed, aside from the new 16-inch multi-spoke, dual-tone alloy wheels. The petrol variant also gets a subtle spoiler on the bootlid. 

At the rear, the City looks largely similar to the outgoing model with its wide, split taillights with LED elements. The rear bumper gets a slight redesign and a sporty-looking carbon-fibre-wrapped diffuser element is placed below it. 

In addition, the City is now offered in the splendid Obsidian Blue Pearl paint shade that you see in the pictures. 

Inside, not much seems to have changed and the layout of the controls is th same as before. The touchscreen is still the same eight-inch unit as well, but it now gets Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and a smartphone-based remote control.

Honda has improved the City with seemingly minor but important tweaks, including an improved rear-side view camera, ambient lighting in the front doors, rain sensing wipers and a wireless phone charger. 

The petrol-powered City now gets driver-assistance features (ADAS) part of the Honda Sensing suite that were previously limited to the hybrid variant. Honda Sensing includes features such as forward collision prevention, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. 

The City’s power unit, the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated (NA) petrol engine has been updated to meet BS6 phase II emission norms and is E20-ready. It continues to be offered with six-speed manual and CVT automatic transmissions. 

Meanwhile, the City’s hybrid variant continues with its 126PS strong-hybrid powertrain that’s claimed to deliver up to 27.13kmpl. 

The City also gets a variant rejig with the addition of two new entry-level trims that make both petrol and hybrid variants more affordable. It retails from Rs 11.49 lakh (ex-showroom) and rivals the Maruti Ciaz, Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus and the upcoming new Hyundai Verna.
