Honda Cars India has opened order books for the Honda City 2017, which is the facelifted City that was launched in Thailand last month and is now open for booking in Malaysia. The refreshed sedan will be launched there on February 14.

Honda has released a short teaser video of the 2017 City, and a microsite highlighting the main features. The City – which has a premium positioning in India – comes with LED headlamps/daytime running lights/foglamps, 16-inch diamond-cut alloys, LED tail lamps, boot spoiler with LED third brake lights, six airbags, a seven-inch “Digipad” touchscreen head unit with navigation (a different unit from ours) and an electric sunroof in the top ZX grade.

The two powertrains available there are carried over. The 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol can be had with a five-speed manual gearbox (17.4 km/l) or a CVT automatic (18 km/l) with seven virtual ratios and paddle shifters. There’s also a 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel engine (100 PS/200 Nm) is mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It’s good for claimed FC of 25.6 km/l.

Like the India-spec City, the Malaysian top-spec City V gets LED headlights and fog lights, two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels, the ducktail spoiler with integrated LED brake lights and LED tail lights. The last two items are not available in Thailand. All models now get VSA and keyless entry with push-button start, while the V receives a multi-angle reverse camera.
