UPDATE: 2009 Honda City: in-depth details and specifications. Click the linked text to find out you need to know about the upcoming new Honda City in Malaysia.
It’s confirmed – the car we’ve been seeing in China and India is indeed the new Honda City. Reader xstan pointed out this flickr page with photos of the new Honda City – fully uncovered including photos of the interior!
It’s not known at the moment which country these photos come from. As expected, the interior is no longer based on the one in the Honda Jazz but instead uses a design that is perhaps cheaper to cast and manufacture.
Look after the jump for full images and details!
The front is definitely inspired by the likes of the European Honda Civic and the Honda FCX Clarity. The headlamps feature reflector lense instead of the more expensive projector type, which is expected at this price range.
This new alloy wheel design has been seen on the previous rendering. It may differ from country to country. This shot of the rear wheel shows the use of disc brakes on the rear.
Another shot of the grille, headlamps and the 4 cylinder SOHC i-VTEC engine in the background.
A light interior. Some markets may get a dark interior, hopefully. Our current City i-DSI and VTEC come with either a dark interior for the VTEC or a light interior for the i-DSI.
The 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine is expected to be the 120 PS 1.5 litre unit from the newly launched Jazz.
A clean and simple interior featuring integrated audio and the new design Honda steering wheel.
The meter illumination at night. Notice the paddle shifts behind the steering spokes.
