*Predicted pricing

New Honda City 2017 will be one of the most expensive sedans in its segment. Now, the company cannot afford to further see an increase. This could affect the sales numbers. What could be done is offer a new variant that will be priced above these ones and has a lot more features too. This will help the company to attract buyers from higher segment.
