New Honda City made its way to India some days back and gained the losing ground of diesel trims from its new 1.5L EarthDreams i-DTEC. The outcome, as can be reported, its rivals are feeling the tremendous heat due to it, and so the overall review calibrated in a fact sheet has been published in a report on internet for us to judge the memento to be delivered in the near future.
During the first two month of launch, the New City managed to sell in approximate numbers of 14,000 units, whereas the coming months had taken the toil to an extraordinary level, with the rival Hyundai Verna found itself seas behind.
However, just before the launch of Honda’s new sedan, Hyundai has rejigged its whole repertoire, and had send the new trim of its baby saloon (Verna CX) in the market to curb down effects of oncoming enemy. Reviewing the perceptive outlook, it can be noted that it is tough for Hyundai to go for a breakthrough now; instead Koreans don’t have something concrete to stand against the Japanese technology.
“City’s position in the segment in petrol was never disputed but we suffered because we did not have a diesel engine. We are happy to see the huge demand for the all new City where we have introduced a diesel engine as well,” said Jnaneswar Sen, senior vice-president, marketing and sales, Honda Cars India Ltd.
Hence, it remains an approved fact that Honda has launched the diesel first time in India, and the response can be witnessed in broad daylight of sales numbers. The second fact that still stands affirm to its ground is that, the petrol too has remained a bread butter for the brand even when it was lacking the diesel engines in India. So it means, Honda has clear winner on both the sides of coin!
