New Honda City, that has captivated most of the eyeballs in India, is duly going play the same role in home country Japan within fewer days, with due to the newly unveiled Grace Hybrid.
To be said precisely, Honda City is named as Grace in Japan and now they virtually rolled-out a hybrid version for making it a new household name.
Confirming the changes as per India-spec City, front grille gets a new chrome strip, and mildly induced bumper, with a mix of clear LED tail lamps and 15-or 16-inch wheels.
In the technical zone, there will be i-DCD (dual-clutch transmission) to support the options of front-wheel and four-wheel drive both.
Inside the cabin, blue theme is carried over, where the central display will also unfold the power left in the battery, and stubby gear selector is like the one sold in mostly all of the Honda hybrids in Japan. Heated front seats, hill start, city braking system, vehicle stability assist (VSA), curtain and side airbags are some of the other loaded features.
Under the bonnet, Grace is expected to store a 1.5-litre Hybrid engine from Honda Vezel which churns out 132 PS (130.14 bhp).
