Japanese car manufacturer Honda had recently launched the next-generation City sedan in the International market like Thailand. We would also be getting the updated City in the next couple of months in India. In comparison to the City that we have in Indian market at the moment, the new-generation City or upcoming City looks entirely different. It look more premium than ever before. International journalists have already got their hands on the new City and here we have one such review that tells how does the all-new City feel to drive.
The video has been uploaded by Thai autonews youtube channel. The anchor is reviewing the 1.0 litre turbo petrol unit or the RS variant in the video. The video starts by showing the exterior of the new City. The front of the car is completely redesigned with the new grille with gloss black or chrome strip depending upon the variant one chooses with all LED headlights. The bumper o the new City is also redesigned to look more sporty and aggressive. The chrome inserts are minimum on the RS variant whereas the regular City gets chrome inserts at places.
The side profile remains more or less the same. The diamond cut alloy wheels, sloping roof and the split LED tail lights at the rear along with the new bumper make the new City look more premium. The video then talks about how the new Honda City feels to drive. According to the video, the car feels powerful, responsive and is good in handling. The steering wheel feels planted at higher speeds. One of the drawbacks of the all-new Honda City according to the video was the suspension which felt too soft. Apart the reviewer liked pretty much everything about the car.
The video specially mentions the space that the new Honda City offers on the inside. It is comfortable inside and has ample amount of space on the inside for passengers and to keep the things as well. Even though we would love to see the 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine RS version in India, it is highly unlikely that Honda will bring that to India. Honda City when launched in India will continue to be powered by the same 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engines which would be BS6 compliant. Honda is also expected to offer a mild hybrid powertrain with the petrol engined 2020 City. The car will be launched in India next month. It’ll continue to compete in the C-Segment sedan market.
