The Honda City will feature an all-new design that is in line with Honda’s latest design language. The headlamps will be LEDs which look similar to what is found on bigger Honda models like the Accord and Civic. The car is likely to be offered with on 16-inch alloy wheels, will feature a redesigned front and bumpers, new LED tail-lamps. Th car itself is now longer, and wider, but the wheelbase has been made shorter.
