The 6th-generation launched in 2014 received a lot of international awards including the Middle East Car of the year award, In short, it was a huge success all around the international markets. In 2015 Honda decided to launch the sixth generation of Honda City under the name of Honda Grace in the Japanese market while Honda City is in the Indian market. The City received a major upgrade as it was more of a Honda Fit successor rather than the 5th gen Honda City. The display cluster is the same as in Honda Jazz Hybrid along with the gear-lever. Honda Grace is claimed to be the most fuel-efficient sedan selling in the market right now, as claimed by Honda Japan.
When it comes to exterior Honda Grace features competitively the same look as 6the generation Honda City. However, the list of differences includes a new front grille with a blue chromed grill, at the back, it gets new LED taillights and the trunk consists of an on-trunk spoiler much like a lip on top. Coming toward the wheels Honda Grace received the same wheels as in Honda Jazz Hybrid; 15-inch wheels in AWD with wheel hub caps and 16-inches wheels in two-wheel drive (2wd). Honda Grace comes with a longer wheelbase than its previous 5th generation. The vehicle is lower and longer than before with a wheelbase being 70mm longer with 2600mm in total, A longer wheelbase thus ensures a more comfortable and stylish look as compared to the old version.

Honda Grace offers some fancy interior looks and features as compared to the 5th generation; It comes with additional equipment such as an automatic climate control touch panel, a Navigation display of 5-inches, 8 speakers with an audio Bluetooth option, and a reverse camera.
