Honda City - Top Used Car In India

The Honda City that has been tested comes with dual airbags, a feature that is seen only on the higher variants in India. The Honda City that has been used for this test is made in Brazil than in India. From India, Honda only exports a small number of vehicles to neighbouring countries and others like South Africa from the company’s Greater Noida and Tapukara facilities.

Honda City sold in India comes with a 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options and the diesel has been made for our market itself. The petrol comes with a five-speed manual and a CVT (continuously variable transmission) option too. The Honda City did well in the side impact test as well. As we can see in the video, the occupants are safe despite no side/curtain airbags. Honda will be introducing the Accord and the BR-V next year for the Indian car market. These will help to add on to the portfolio of the Japanese automaker. Honda’s Mobilio hasn’t done that well and the BR-V is likely to add on to the current sales numbers.

Honda is also working on setting up a new plant in Gujarat. This will be the company's third plant in the country. The new-generation Honda vehicles will be manufactured and the Japanese automaker will be looking at enhancing its exports from India. Gujarat will be the ideal location to export to the western part of the world. This new plant will be functional from late 2016 or early 2017. Honda at the moment is expanding its Rajasthan facility.
