The Honda City 2023 gets a few cosmetic updates on the outside. The thick chrome bar at the front is now slimmer, making way for a bigger grille with honeycomb pattern. The bumpers at the front are also tweaked while the LED headlight units remain similar to the ones used in the strong hybrid version launched last year. The profile of the new Honda City also remains quite similar to the outgoing model. However, the most noticeable change here are the newly-designed 16-inch alloy wheels. Honda will also offer a smaller 15-inch alloys as well. At the rear, Honda has updated the design of the bumper. Honda has also introduced a new blue exterior colour theme, called Obsidan Blue Pearl, for the new generation City.
