Honda City Sedan
It has been reported that Honda Cars India is getting set to offer its Honda City sedan, which is quite popular in the nation, a mid-life upgrade. A recent claim from the media suggests that the new 2023 Honda City facelift will be available for purchase by the end of March.
It is anticipated that the vehicle would undergo just minor updates, both externally and internally, and will keep its current powertrains. In addition, the manufacturer could get rid of any of the new varieties or add others to the revised portfolio. We have seen test mules of the new City, which have shown some of the exterior modifications, including the newly designed alloy wheels and the adjusted taillamps.

The front fascia is going to be redesigned to have a bigger black grille instead of the thick chrome bar that is already there. In addition to that, it will have a revised fog lamp assembly, a slightly modified bumper, and enormous air dams. It is anticipated that the internal arrangement would not undergo any adjustments. However, there is a possibility that the car may include ventilated seats and wireless charging.
Both a 1.5 L naturally aspirated gasoline engine and a 1.5 L Atkinson Cycle hybrid gasoline engine will be available as powertrain choices for the redesigned 2023 Honda City. The earlier model has a maximum power output of 121 bhp, whereas the latter model has a power output that is rated at 126 bhp.
The fuel economy ratings of 18.4 kilometers per liter for the gasoline model and 26.5 kilometers per liter for the gasoline hybrid model. Because of the forthcoming new pollution standards, Honda will no longer produce the 1.5 L, 100 bhp diesel engine. There will be a manual transmission with 6 speeds, a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (e-CVT) as alternatives for the transmission (for the petrol hybrid variant).
The Honda City car may now be purchased for a price that falls between Rs. 11.87 lacs to Rs. 15.62 lacs. The price of the Hybrid ZX eHEV model is Rs. 19.89 lacs. The facelifted version can see a little increase in price due to the minor visual modifications as well as the functional updates.
Following the completion of the facelift for the City, the Japanese carmaker will introduce a new model that will compete in the extremely competitive mid-size SUV market. It is anticipated that it will be shown publicly by the middle of 2023, and its introduction to consumers may take place during the festive season of this year.
