Honda launched the BS 6 compliant City last year in December. It is an extremely popular product in the segment and still enjoys a huge demand.

"We recently introduced its BS 6 version, so technically we can produce and sell it in BS 6 regime as well. This will give wider buying choice to our customers in terms of product trims and price range," he added.

While some media publications have reported that the current model will be sold in bulk to fleet operators, Goel has confirmed that such is not the case. He said that City has always been a preference in the personal car buying space and Honda plans to continue on this strategy in the future.

With the generation change the City will bring forward a heavily updated design which has been inspired from the latest Honda Accord. Also, the car now uses a completely new interior design, features as well as mechanical updates.
