Honda Cars India Ltd. was established as a joint venture with Usha International of Siddharth Shriram Group in December 1995 and was formerly named Honda Siel Cars India Ltd. This joint venture was ended in August 2012 when Honda took over the company and changed its name to Honda Cars India Ltd. to make it a 100% subsidiary of Honda. It has its headquarters in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh where also located their manufacturing facility. They also have a manufacturing plant in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan.

Honda Cars India has finally launched the much-awaited 4th generation City sedan with a price tag of INR 7.42 lakh for the base variant of petrol and INR 8.62 lakh for the base diesel variant. Honda City diesel is now officially the most fuel efficient car in India with ARAI certified mileage of 26.0 kmpl under standard test conditions while the petrol model with CVT automatic transmission returns 18.0 kmpl and the manual Honda City return mileage of 17.8 kmpl.

The 2nd and 3rd generation were launched in November 2003 and September 2008 respectively, but City was losing its initial charm due to an increasing competition from other brands, hiking of petrol prices which marked an extraordinary need for a diesel variant which was missing in City and growing old features of this sedan as compared to the other new machines. Thus, it is a great move by Honda to retain their dominion over a segment that they hold so preciously for a decade.

New Honda City features body colored ORVMs with integrated turn signals, chromed outside door handles, shark fin antenna at rear, a stylish sunroof, both sides having the strong character lines, rear tail lamps extending into the boot lid and dynamic rear fenders showing a much wider stance.
