Honda City hatchback (Gienia) for China spied

The Honda City hatchback which is called as Gienia has been spotted in China ahead of its debut. The new model is basically the Griez (China-spec City) sedan with a chopped boot.

In the international markets, the Jazz a.k.a. Fit serves as the hatchback version of the City but China, being an idiosyncratic market, has enough room for a second hatchback from the same family.

The car will be made by Donfeng-Honda JV in China.

To be exclusive to the dragon country, the Gienia will be made by the Honda-Dongfeng joint venture and is likely to be launched towards the end of the year. Visually, the hatchback’s front fascia has a much bolder grille and bumper. It’s based on the Concept B design study.

The rear fascia derives inspiration from the latest generation of the Civic sedan. The Chinese hatchback sports an overdone bumper and an ill-fitting rear spoiler. The Gienia is a large hatchback measuring 4,517 mm in length, 1,477 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,600 mm.
