Ahead of its official debut, the Honda City hatchback called the Gienia has been spotted in China. The new model is basically a downsized City sedan which is sold as Griez in China. However, this car will be exclusive to China market and might not make it across the globe. The rest of the world will continue to be served by the Jazz in India a.k.a. Fit in the international markets.

The automotive trend in China has been known to be different from the rest of the countries, hence widening the scope to introduce a second hatchback from the same family. The hatchback believed to be based on the Concept B design study; it gets a bolder grille and bumper on the front. It also comes with projector headlamps. As for the rear, the Gienia gets large taillights which are connected by a strip. The rear bumper is large and sculpted with chrome accents. To complete its sporty look, the hatchback version gets a rear spoiler.

In terms of dimensions, the Honda Gienia measures 4,517mm in length, 1,705mm in width and 1,477mm in hight. The car will get a wheelbase measuring 2,600 mm. In comparison to Griez, the Gienia is about 22mm shorter in its overall length. Under the hood, the Gienia will continue to be powered by Honda’s existing 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine that generates 127bhp of power and 155Nm of torque. The engine will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission, while CVT might be optional.
