2023 Honda City Teased Before Its Launch On March 2
Before the City facelift’s unveiling and pricing announcement on March 2, 2023, Honda teased the product. The 2023 Honda City will be available for test drives starting on March 3 and deliveries will start at some point following, as we just revealed.
The teaser depicts the front three-quarters of the City makeover as well as the revised front grille’s smaller chrome slat and LED headlamps. The redesigned bumper’s design is also alluded to in the teaser.
Although the trailer hardly depicts the City facelift’s appearance, we previously learned that it will have somewhat updated aesthetics. New designs are added to the front and back bumpers, and the once-wide chrome bar in the front fascia has been made narrower. While the lowest trims will still be available with 15-inch alloy wheels, the higher trims’ 16-inch alloy wheels get a new design. Honda will also include a new shade of Obsidian Blue paint with the upgrade.
A new entry-level SV variant with only a 6-speed manual transmission will be available for the City facelift. The CVT transmission will also be an option for the other trims, V, VX, and ZX. In order to lower the beginning price of the hybrid sedan, Honda will also release a new City e:HEV VX grade in addition to the new City SV model.
Moreover, ADAS capabilities including adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and automated emergency braking will be included in the City makeover. The ADAS system, which was previously exclusive to the City hybrid, will gradually become available in the petrol models as well. Up to six airbags, rain-sensing wipers, TPMS, wireless charging, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are further safety features.
The 2023 Honda City will only be available in gasoline after this release. The 1.5-liter, 121hp petrol engine will continue to be paired with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT transmission. Moreover, it will sport a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle hybrid engine with 126 horsepower and an e-CVT transmission. The City is the only midsize sedan now available with a strong-hybrid drivetrain.
To comply with E20 regulations and achieve RDE (real driving emissions) standards, Honda will update both engines. Nevertheless, due to low sales and RDE requirements, no diesel engines will be available.
The Volkswagen Virtus, Skoda Slavia, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and the soon-to-debut next-generation Hyundai Verna will all remain competitors of the City facelift.
