The 2017 Honda City facelift was teased not too long ago in Thailand, showing us hints of the Civic FC on its updated exterior. If you need some idea on just what the new City may look like from the front, this render courtesy of IndianAutosBlog is a good start.

The Civic cues are most obvious on the new headlamp design that feature L-shaped LED position lamps, and appear to emulate the “scale-look” of the top-spec Civic’s LED units, as well as the latest Accord. There’s also a chrome strip on the top edge of each headlamp cluster.

These flow into a slimmer chrome grille, now surrounded by a honeycomb mesh instead. Elsewhere, the fog lamp enclosures are not only reshaped, but are further accentuated compared to before. No render of the City’s rear, but it relatively unchanged compared to the front end.

The facelifted Honda City will be launched in Thailand on January 12, 2017, reportedly packing the familiar 1.5 litre SOHC i-VTEC engine mated to either an Earth Dreams Technology CVT or five-speed manual.
