Honda recently unveiled the 2014 Honda City in India. Honda India confirmed that the car will launch in January in India and Nepal will soon follow. Syakar Co. Ltd, the authorized distributor of Honda Cars in Nepal have already confirmed that the new City will hit the Nepalese roads very soon.
Honda has even stopped manufacturing old Honda City so you won’t be able to buy the old model even if you want it. The staffs at Syaker recommend you to wait for the new City and and also said that the old model is out of stock. The new Honda City looks similar to the old city but has re-designed front grille which distinguishes it from the older model. The major changes become noticeable when you step inside the cabin! The older City has out-dated interiors but the new City has the top in class interiors that you will find only in premium Sedans. The 2014 City will compete with Volkswagen Vento, Hyundai Verna, Kia Rio and Ford Fiesta. For the first time, the City will be available in Diesel variant as well. The new City looks very premium both inside out. What’s more, you get all kinds of safety features including Airbags, ABS with EBD and also parking sensors. Talking about connectivity, you get bluetooth integrated in the phone which is a nice addition. Also, this time around, Honda has used premium looking materials in the dash. The dashboard has touch screen too! In the high end variant you also get automatic climate control. You get alloy wheels and fog lamps. There is also a sun roof model but we are not sure if it will be available in Nepal. You can get the car in 1.5L Diesel or Petrol variant. The tires are however small for its class but it will return more mileage which is a good thing too. The diesel version will give mileage about 18-20KMPL which is good for this big of a car. It gets the same engine as the Honda Amaze but Honda says it has tweaked the engine for better performance.
The new City will cost more than its predecessor without a doubt. The car has become longer and looks more elegant now. The front of the City 2014 looks aggressive. The back however looks almost the same. There will be several color options at launch. The car will be available in Nepal in 1st half of 2014. Honda City falls in the premium Sedan category and will surely allure a lot of buyers. We will let you know when it will exactly come to Nepal. Till then, stay tuned and stay updated!
