Honda Cars India is planning to launch the City facelift soon. The Japanese manufacturer claims the City to be one of its best-selling products since its launch in India. In 2020, the fifth-generation model of the car was launched in our market. Now, Honda is gearing up to launch a facelift model of the sedan loaded with several updates for customers. According to the latest reports, the City facelift will start arriving in Honda showrooms on March 2. The reports also claim that test drives for the facelift will commence a day after its arrival in the showrooms. Around the same time, its prices are expected to be made public. In terms of modifications, the City facelift is likely to get new headlamps, a revised grille, and a reworked bumper. The side profile won't undergo many modifications, but the facelifted model supposedly will have new alloy wheels. 

Inside, there will be no alterations. However, it is expected to come with amenities like wireless charging and ventilated seats. A lane watch camera, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a keyless entry system, and push-button ignition are what the existing Honda City gets. The carmaker has not shared any specific information about the facelift's features, but the manufacturer will reveal more information regarding the features of the upcoming City closer to its launch.
