Honda City has crossed the 2.5 lakh sales milestone in India. Fourth generation model of the popular midsize sedan has registered a cumulative global sales of around one million units, which means India contributed to 25% of the total sales of this car. The Japanese automaker launched a facelift version of the sedan earlier this year that has earned positive response from the buyers and helped in enhancing the car’s appeal further.
