Spy shots of new Honda City in China, reveals front and rear. The front gets a design which is more akin to Honda’s new global design, while the rear gets newly designed taillights, probably to differentiate the City from Alivio (Ciaz).

Longer and wider than the India-spec model, Honda City in China measures 4495 mm in length, 1705 mm in width, 1477 mm in height. Its counterpart in India measures 4440 mm in length, 1695 mm in width, 1495 mm in height. Both models sit on the same wheelbase measuring 2600mm.

Exterior updates include a new front fascia with a wider grille and new bumper (very much like the new Jazz) while headlight clusters are also different. At the rear, new C shaped tail lamp clusters are evident along with a new boot lid. The new Honda City gets new alloy design, and receives a new crease line down its lower half of the body adding an illusion of length.
