Honda will bring its 2023 City Facelift and Hyundai bringing a new version of its Verna to the Market

The midsize SUV segment has grown in popularity in recent years, with high-volume sales occurring on a monthly basis. Recognizing its significance, more manufacturers have joined the path to a large pie. Taking all of this into account, Honda will release a facelifted version of the City in a few months, while the new generation Hyundai Verna will be available in the coming months.

Honda is preparing a mid-lifecycle update for the 5th-generation City in India, which is set to debut in March 2023. This will be the first update since its release in mid-2020, though sources say it will only include minor cosmetic changes.

The City facelift will be available as a gasoline-only sedan. Due to the upcoming RDE norms, which go into effect in April 2023, Honda will discontinue the City’s 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine.

The Honda City facelift will be equipped with a 121hp, 1.5-litre petrol engine mated to either a 6-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission.


There will also be a 1.5-litre Atkinson Cycle petrol-hybrid powertrain with 126hp and an e-CVT transmission.

The new generation Verna, which will go on sale later this year, will be powered by a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine that has been revised. This engine should be comparable to the Virtus and Slavia’s 150PS, 1.5-litre TSI turbo engines. The current generation sedan comes standard with a seven-speed DCT and a turbocharged engine, which should be carried over to the next generation model.

The powertrain will remain unchanged, but there will be mechanical changes such as a revised suspension setup and a throatier exhaust note, as well as improved driving dynamics. To keep things consistent, the sedan will have sportier design elements both inside and out.
