Japanese car manufacturer Honda is all set to launch the next-generation Honda City in the Indian market. It will be launched in the coming months and is entirely different from the model that we currently have on sale here in India. Honda had initially launched the next gen City in Thailand first and now the car has started reaching other Asian countries. Before its official launch in India, Honda has already brought the next-gen City to our neighbouring country Pakistan and here we have a walkaround video of the next gen Honda City that is being sold in Pakistan.
The video has been uploaded by CAR-A-THON on their youtube channel. THe video shows a proper walkaround of the all-new Honda City. It looks like Pakistan will be getting the RS version of the all-new City as the video is based on that model only. This is the fifth generation of the popular sedan that competes with cars like Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna in India.
The video starts by showing the front grille which gets Honda’s signature modern day grille that is black in colour in the RS version. Regular City gets a chrome grille. The RS version gets a dedicated badging on the left side of the grille too. Chrome elements have been completely removed from the front and gets a honey comb design on the air dam and black inserts on the fog lamp are. The headlamps are all LED and DRLs are dual function one that act as turn indicators too.
The side profile shows the blacked out ORVM, sporty looking alloy wheel and shark fin antenna on the roof. Towards the rear, it has black boot lip spoiler that adds up to the sportiness of the sedan. There is also a rear diffuser and RS badging on the boot too. The split tail lamps are all LED.
On the inside, the City gets all-black interiors that look plush and it has features like touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, semi digital instrument cluster and so on. In comparison the current City that we have in India, the upcominh one will be more spacious on the inside as it is longer and wider than the current City.
In terms of engine options it is not known whether we would be getting the 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine in India. The possible engine options that we would be getting here are a 15 litre i-VTEC petrol engine that generates 117 Bhp and 145 Nm of torque and a 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel engine producing 100 Bhp and 200 Nm of peak torque. It looks like Honda is ready to launch the City in India but is delaying it because of the current Corona Virus situation in the country.
