6th Generation Honda City May Not Be Launched In Pakistan Until 2017

Honda City 2015

In October last year, Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan introduced a Minor Model Change (MMC) of the 5th Generation Honda City (2007-2013) while the customers and buyers were waiting for the newer 6th Generation Honda City. As expected, the MMC didn’t do well in terms of sales because people are holding off their purchases in anticipation that Honda Atlas might introduce the 6th Generation Honda City in the coming months.

Well, if you are among those few who are holding off their purchases hoping there would be a new model in June/July this year, then we have a bad news for you. One of our sources at Honda Atlas has confirmed that Honda Atlas currently has no plans to introduce the 6th Generation Honda City in the Pakistani market as of yet.

According to the source, Honda will introduce the 6th Generation Honda City not before 2017 when the international MMC of the car is out owing to the low sales the company is facing. He also said that a new model requires significant investment and sales number commitment from the dealers’ end, who all voted against launching the 6th Generation Honda City for now.

This means that we will continue to see the current Honda City on our roads until the better part of 2017.

    Is your source first hand? Normally for such a big news you have to have two sources at least. Anyways it’s a hell of a breaking news.

  • Raja Abrar Hussain

    Why don’t we get cars in Pakistan updated along with rest of the world despite being a demand especially for Toyota & Honda.. silly.!!!
    Or is it that the auto makers want all there unused material be assembled & sold in Pakistan.

    Panjabis buy civic nowadays waderas buy land cruiser honda is for pandapi panjabi in night they laugh like this hohaha tusi kee kehrayeee ho

  • Anti-Punjabi

    And Lusi ho toh panjabi jaisay sindh may reh keh sindhi ko bora kehtay hain outar kay chappal marnay chaheye lusi maryas

  • Yes. The source is first hand. Also, reconfirmed it from one of their vendors too, who usually gets information at least 3 years in advance.

  • Adnan Khan

    Strange Decision. City had issues. it wobbled at 90km/h and suspension was bad too. And 11th generation Corolla Killed the Competition. Honda Should Introduce the new generation ASAP, if it wants to survive in this Market.

  • Abdullah

    I said the same thing four months back but nobody believed me! But for sure it would get launched in Q4 2016

  • Khurram

    Seems self contradictory. Why would Honda continue with a low selling model. It would damage customer trust/loyalty giving corolla an opportunity to fill the gap

  • Saad R.

    ” Dealers voted against launching the 6th Generation Honda City for now”. Dealers are stupid. It is pretty evident city sales have gone down because of the continuous complexity around the launch of new shape, specially since its launch in India and the fact that the current shape has been around since 2009.

    Bring the new shape in then see how the sales surge.

    Thanks Fahad Ullah for bringing this up. I was one of those who was waiting for Atlas Honda to launch new model some where during this year. Too bad that they are so incompetent to do it and as a result they are losing me as a buyer already.

    Cant wait for their incompetence any more and going for Corolla instead ……

  • Asad Malik

    The peeps in Honda are idiots.City is a car made for middle-class,its sales have always been greater than the flagship model civic they are offering.New toyota is killing sales of both civic and city.I will not in my right mind buy a ride which is already at its term end so thanks Honda i will go for corolla.

  • rashid

    The last civics and cities have the worst suspension to date, was never a corolla fan but now having owned corolla, civic and city at the same time I see corolla has best suspension, but hondas and cities look better both from inside and out as the colors and paint is way better in honda and the styling overall.

    But you forget all about the looks when you live in a city with bad roads all over and esp when you have a pregnant wife with you and you know the roads are not improving soon.

    I wish Honda Atlas people drove the cars before they deliver to customers pathetic suspensions. Feels like riding a wooden “phatta”!

    So for now people buy japanese cars or old mercedes and bmws and new ones if you can!

  • Anti-Punjabi

    Yes u are right .Honda is Pandapi panjabi car Corolla made in sindh it nice car unlike honda lusi marya

  • Asad Malik

    Because its Pakistan where there are straw brained monkeys assigned in Honda’s management department.

  • Anti-Punjabi

    Its not pakistan Its Punjab Where panjabi cars and people live.

  • Asad Malik

    Who says KHI is bad.I never once heard her in punjab anyone talking bad about our fellow bretheren.Dekhain bhai har insaan doodh ka dhula nai hota,there are always people who are against unity,have bad mindset and fail to give respect people deserve.Saeen main karachi main gya to sub say pehlay main nay sindhi zubaan ki tareef ki aur bhut khushi hui,bhut meethi language hai.Allah nay humain insaan ashraf makhlook banaya hai.Meri kya jurat kay kisi bhai ko gali dun aur ALLAH ki takhliq to bura kahoon?Bhai Pakistan ka koi bhi kona ho hum sab Pakistani hain.KHI main behtar tankhwah hai saray shehron kay muqablay main,Pakistan ka sab say bara shehar hai.Bas thoray security issues hain.I am not jealous.Pyar ki bolee sekhain bhai,aur rahi baat idhar ki kabhi twin cities main ain to khidmat ka moqa dain,inshallah you will not be disappointed.

  • Honda….where art thou super cool diesel units? 1.6 diesel, mate that to an auto trans, put it in a good looking car with a few decent options and you can sell them like hot cakes; turn your company into profit mode.

    Is there any chances of new shape in 2016 or not

  • hailian320

    Quite right…..After thoughts of many months finally booked Toyota….. looser strategy by Honda indeed….. How long they can stretch the last city model….

  • Umar Mian

    dealers’ end, who all voted against launching the 6th Generation Honda City for now. what a waste.

    When cars got outdated in other part of the world automaker install the new manufacturing line over thier and import their outdated model manufacturing lines in overhere and start making that outdated models. which sold very well. No extra cost on another manufacturing line. This is what automaker are doing in Pakistan.
