At the end of 2015, the Honda Greiz was launched as a sportier looking version of the City. The City is produced by the Guangzhou-Honda Joint Venture, while the Greiz is made by the Dongfeng-Honda Joint Venture. As Honda has two JV’s in China, each wants a similar successful model as the other, which leads to two versions of a single model being offered in China, just like the Vezel and XR-V.
