The rendering portrays Honda City sedan with the Insight concept inspired front fascia; gets ‘Flying Wing’ chrome bar and U-shaped grille
The next generation Honda City midsize sedan could adopt completely new and stylish design language that was displayed through the Honda Insight concept at Detroit Motor Show. In a set of latest rendered images the sedan appears wearing a front fascia that looks very much similar as the Insight concept. While there is no official word about the next generation Honda City receiving such a design, we feel excited thinking about the possibility.
As the rendered images show, the front profile wears a prominent ‘Flying Wing’ pattern chrome bar sitting at the top of the U shaped front grille. There are projector headlamps with integrated sleek LED daytime running lights. A large black central air intake is there flanked by the large air dams that sport horizontally positioned LED fog lamps complemented by piano black finished trim.
At the side profile, the rendered image shows the car with stylish looking alloy wheels, sleek character lines, turn indicator integrated ORVMs. The roofline is nicely curved, while the blackened glass area features chrome trim around it. Moving to the back, there are wraparound and stylish LED taillights, shark fin antenna, an integrated lip spoiler and sculpted tailgate.
Honda updated the City sedan via facelift early last year in India and it comes with a very stylish and appealing design. But, the rendered images portray the car in much more unique and attractive manner. Considering the fact that Honda City sits in a segment, where rivals like Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Hyundai Verna are present, we can hope the Japanese brand adopts a new styling theme to make the already popular car more desired.
Not only at exterior, inside the cabin too is expected to receive a sporty and unique design. Also, there would be several new and advanced features along with high end safety measures as well. On the powertrain front too, next generation Honda City will likely come with updated engines.
Expect the new Honda City to receive electrified powertrain options like a possible hybrid mechanism. Apart from that, we hope the company brings an all-electric version of the car in India in the near future. However, Honda is tight lipped about any such step. Currently, in its fifth generation in India, the City will be updated mechanically to meet BS6 norms in its next avatar that could arrive by the end of this decade or a year later.
