Honda Cars is also offering year discounts. They are looking at clearing off their old batches. The new upgraded Honda city is launching in mid-December. The Honda dealers are offering discounts at various sales outlets on the City sedan in the range of Rs 70,000- Rs 1 lakhs. A similar strategy seemed to work with Honda Jazz, finding it an easy way to achieve the top sales figures
Honda Siel cars are not facing any hardships while offering this lucrative discount as one would think. The localised production of the Honda City sedan has translated to be huge discounts the company is offering. Therefore, in simple terms the auto major is passing on their profits to ramp up the sales of the sedan. The City sedan, which is sadly offered only in an all-petrol variant has been the only drawback with a majority of consumers getting attracted to the diesel cars of late. However, with the large discounts, the company has managed to revive the demand for Honda City making it the top-selling sedan in the past few months.
But, one cannot expect the same discounts in the future Honda City version. The 2012 Honda City price is most likely to continue at stipulated tag of Rs 7.49 lakhs, if not more. Hoping that Honda City fans will not let the sedan down, just because a CNG/LPG or a diesel variant is absent in the car. The fascia of the new Honda City has been mostly worked upon with redesigned grille more prominent and similar changes reflecting in the bumper design looking more filled with character now. The 1.5 L petrol engine is where the auto major is quite content with, without introducing any changes in that department.
