The Honda City facelift will make its world debut in Thailand tomorrow, but here is the refreshed B-segment sedan naked in the metal. Not in the Land of Smiles though, but in India, where it will surface in this quarter. These pics are from, and they’re of the car undergoing an ad shoot.

Unlike the official teasers shown so far, which focus on the City’s new face, these pics show the City facelift’s sides and rear end. We see new (and very elaborate) design alloy rims on the profile and redesigned tail lamp clusters on this India-spec car.

The rear lights seen here have a ‘white’ upper portion, which was not present in the Honda Thailand teasers. In the latter, the tail lamps look largely similar to the pre-facelift City’s.

There’s also a boot spoiler with an integrated third brake light and a sporty-looking lower rear bumper with mesh-textured black centre section flanked by reflectors. Not seen here is the front end, which takes after the bold face of the latest Civic FC. A chrome strip on the top edge of the headlamp cluster (which mimic the ‘scales’ of the Civic’s LEDs) and gentle L-shaped LED position lamps are inspired by the bigger sedan.
