Honda recently unveiled the all-new City sedan for Indian market. They will be launching the car officially in the market on 15 July 2020. It competes with cars like Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid in the segment. We recently reviewed the all-new City and the review for the same is also available on our website (click here). Here we have a video that shows what all would be available in the base trim of Honda City.
The video has been uploaded by Thirsty Wheels on their youtube channel. The video starts by showing what all changes are there in the base variant of City, Starting from the front, the headlights are projector type units instead of all LED ones. It gets a LED DRLS, turn indicators integrated in the headlamp cluster. The base variant also gets the signature chrome strip at the front with Honda logo on it. The shape of the bumper remains the same but, it misses out of fog lamps.
Coming to the side profile, the base variant does not get machine cut dual tone alloy wheels. Instead, it gets 15 inch steel rims with wheel caps on them. The turn indicators are placed on the side fender instead of ORVMs. Apart from that no major changes are seen on the car side profile. Coming to the rear, it still gets LED tail lights, and sharp looking bumper.
On the inside, even the base variant offers decent features like all four windows are powered, the steering wheel gets audio controls, simple music system, manually height adjustable driver seat, fabric upholstery and so on. The cabin gets an overall black theme with silver accents at places on the dashboard. As this is the base variant, it misses out on features like digital tachometer, cruise control, electric sunroof and so on.
