The Price of new Honda City 2023 starts at Rs 11.49 Lakh (Ex-showroom)
Honda began the year by introducing the facelift Honda City to the Indian market. The introduction of the new sedan represents a significant achievement for the brand because it is the first model in its segment to feature advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Furthermore, the new model assists the brand in establishing itself as a sedan manufacturer in India. It should be noted that the sedan market is battling for consumer attention among models such as the Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and the upcoming 2023 Hyundai Verna.
The 2023 Honda City has a few subtle design changes that make the sedan look a little sharper. Reprofiled front and rear bumpers, a slimmer chrome slat, a sportier-looking honeycomb front grille, new alloy wheels, and a spoiler are among the changes.
