Nice pics. Vibhor, where did you get hold of these? This car looks like a Civic cut to smaller proportions! I think one can notice the paddle shifts also! If paddle shift model is introduced in India, it will dent Altis sales bigtime.

"The car will come with a manual and an automatic transmission both. The

automatic transmission will be a four speed automatic with sequential

multi mode and paddle shift just like its arch rival Honda Civic"

Honda Begins Sales of All-New CITY in Thailand

Last update: 1:59 a.m. EDT Sept. 10, 2008

Bangkok, Sep 10, 2008 (JCN Newswire via COMTEX) --
Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (HATC), Honda's automobile
production and sales subsidiary in Thailand, today began sales of the
all-new CITY.

The design of the new
CITY is based on the total pursuit of a compact, yet dynamic form with
road presence. In addition, class-leading*1 interior space was achieved
to create a cabin that surrounds the occupants with an open and secure
feeling. The new CITY is equipped with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine, which
is further advanced in every way, including greater output and fuel
consumption. Furthermore, with Honda's unique commitment to provide
both advanced safety and environmental performance, the new CITY
achieves the highest levels in every area in the effort to become the
new bench mark for subcompact sedans.

The first generation
Honda CITY was introduced in 1996, quickly responding to the growing
needs for automobiles in Asian markets associated with economic growth
in the region. Today, CITY is produced in seven countries*2 and enjoyed
by customers in 39 nations around the world. CITY also is becoming one
of Honda's core models, along with Civic, Accord, CR-V and Jazz (Fit),
with cumulative sales passing the 1 million unit mark in late May 2008.

The sales of
this third-generation CITY will begin in Thailand from today and expand
successively to other existing markets. Honda also envisions further
expansion of CITY sales, in order to meet growing customer needs,
especially in emerging markets.

Regarding production of
the new CITY, HATC will support the startup of production in developing
countries including ASEAN markets, India and China. Honda's automobile
production capabilities in Thailand have grown continuously for more
than 20 years, which is helping accelerate the advancement of
automobile production in the region as a whole by providing technical
support for other production operations in neighboring countries. Honda
has been strongly promoting local autonomy by transferring more
production and procurement functions from Japan to Thailand with the
goal of strengthening Honda's production strategy and to increase local
parts sourcing. In addition, increased coordination with local R&D
and production engineering functions (production equipment and tooling)
is supporting the advancement of Honda production operations in
Thailand as the leader plant in the region. As a result, the local
content of the new CITY has now reached 93% from 83% of current model.

The second HATC plant
will begin operation in late October of this year, expanding the total
annual production capacity to 240,000 units. HATC will also expand auto
exports and technical support to other operations to enhance its role
as the leader plant, and strengthen it's competitiveness in the world.

*1 1.5-liter subcompact sedan category

*2 Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, China, Turkey

The first Honda City was launched in 1981 as a three-door hatchback. It was one of the first "tall" hatchbacks: to maximize interior room without occupying more road space, the body was taller than usual. At the 1981 Tokyo Motor Show, one gimmick was a folding 50 cc motorcycle (also separately marketed under the name Motocompo) that could fit into the City's trunk. A turbocharged version was added to the range in 1982 and a convertible version soon after
