Here are a set of photos of the new Honda Greiz, which was revealed by Dongfeng Honda for the Chinese market recently. Don’t confuse it for a facelift however, because the Greiz is essentially a Honda City underneath a revised exterior.

Exterior revisions include many elements of other Honda models, like the front-end from the HR-V and rear tail lights taken from the 2016 Civic. There are a few changes to the car’s dimensions as a result – length is increased by 45 mm, as is the width, by 10 mm, while the height is maintained at 1,477 mm. Wheelbase remains unchanged at 2,600 mm.

On Dongfeng Honda’s official website, four wheel options are available, depending on the variant chosen, including two steel and two alloy options, sized from 15 to 16-inches.

Moving inside, the discrepancies end and things become more familiar, with an interior layout akin to the regular City. Features include a touchscreen display for the multimedia unit, along with a touch-panel to manage the climate control system.

Under the hood, a 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine provides 129 hp at 6,600 rpm and 155 Nm of torque at 4,600 rpm, driving the front wheels via a CVT gearbox, the same as that of the Chinese-market Honda City.

Which design do you fancy more? The Honda Greiz – which must have been inspired by the City’s JDM name, the Grace – or the City?
