Exclusive to China, Honda Greiz has been officially revealed in 14 new images. Based on new Honda City, which made its global debut in India in November 2013, Honda Greiz is manufactured by Dongfeng-Honda, a JV between Chinese company Dongfeng and Honda Motors.
To be priced slightly above existing Honda City, which is also on sale in China, Honda Greiz looks more premium and sporty. In China, it will compete with existing City, which is manufactured by Guangzhou-Honda, a JV between Guangzhou and Honda.
Speaking about new Honda Greiz, it gets a redesigned exterior. In the front it gets a more sculpted bonnet, flowing into front bumper. Headlight design remains same, but gets projector headlamps with LED DRL and LED turn indicator. Replacing the chrome grille in front is a thick glossy slat in piano black. In centre is the Honda logo.
Underlining this is a thin chrome lining, which separates the headlight / grille from lower bumper. Though housing circular fog lights, lower bumper is completely different on board the Greiz.
On its side, wheel arches look more pronounced. Between the two wheels, sharper body lines give Greiz a flowing look. New alloys add to its sporty character. Rear features redesigned LED taillights, bootlip, a wider chrome slat and a redesigned lower bumper.
Unlike its exteriors, which feature prominent changes as compared to City, the interiors of Greiz are similar to City. Power to Honda Greiz comes from Honda’s 1.5 liter iVTEC petrol engine generating 131 hp. This engine is mated to a CVT gearbox.
