Is it a pity that domestic production has been discontinued? The Indian version of Tian Fengfan looks really advanced!
Honda Fengfan used to be Honda's main force in domestic small car market. Together with Fit, she was engaged in sale of entry-level models. However, due to market changes, Fengfan has also fulfilled its mission. . However, in Indian market, Honda Fengfan's successor model is still in service. It also uses "City" as vehicle's name. Recently, a new generation City (hereinafter referred to as Fengfan) has been updated and is sold alongside old model.
The overall size of new car does not differ much from size of old model. The design uses many of Honda's latest design elements. The front has an integrated grille and extends to headlights on both sides. , Has a special blue car logo. The shape of LED headlights is slimmer and overall design is very similar to Accord, but it still feels luxurious in such a small car.
The side profile does not have low front and high back position of older models and visual effect is as slim as possible without big changes in size. High-end models use high-end parts such as chrome door handles, rearview mirror turn signals, etc., which can enhance look at a lower cost.
The design of tail is sportier, taillights are more three-dimensional, and interior details are also richer, giving a nice after-light effect. The design of inverted trunk with a small rear wing is quite interesting, in addition, shape of rear bumper is also more radical, and it is equipped with a diffuser that has a more aggressive shape.
The inside also looks nice. High-end models don't have shadow of cheap cars at all. Automatic air conditioning, large screen central control, wireless charging, etc., which can be seen as keeping pace with pace of mainstream market. In addition, well-received Honda Sensing has become a standard configuration for entire series, which was previously only available in a hybrid version.
In terms of power, new Fengfan offers 1.5L clean-fuel versions and a 1.5L hybrid version. The fuel version offers a 6-speed manual transmission and a choice of CVT.
In contrast to domestic positioning, Indian version of Honda Fengfan is Honda's flagship model in India. The 1.5L fuel version is equivalent to 96,000 yuan. The price of hybrid version is much higher, equivalent to almost 160,000 yuan. really not a cheap price. This may also explain from outside why Honda no longer produces such models for domestic market. On one hand, market demand continues to decline. The SUV is real responsibility of sales.
