An anonymous source told Economic Times, "The car would carry new colours and design cues like new tail lamps that could get an LED treatment and internal changes in form of some modifications with instrumental panel, new interior trim and a new CD player system." Another industry official added, "Lights, which play an integral part in the styling and aesthetics of the car, and a new tail lamp with integrated LEDs are sure to be part of the new car that is slated to debut post-festive season.”
With the all new Ford Fiesta coming soon and the Skoda Rapid getting ready for debut, Honda definitely needs to breathe balloons full of fresh air into the City to keep the brand competitive.

If not the festive season, then the 2012 Auto Expo will surely see the 2012 Honda City facelift making its entry into India.
