Honda City has been one of the popular C-segment sedan in India. It has been present in our market for a very long time and with every generation, Honda managed to make it better. Honda City currently competes with cars like Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento in the segment. Now, Honda is all set to launch the all-new fifth generation City sedan in our market later this month, and here we have video that shows how the car was actually designed for Indian roads and streets.
The video has bee uploaded by Honda Cars India on their official youtube channel. The video starts by saying that Honda City is like a legend who has been present in the country since 1998. Indians are extremely passionate about their legends and this came in as a challenge for Honda engineers. They had to come up with a Honda City which will not only be pleasing to existing customers but new customers as well.
Honda engineers worked on the all-new City in a way to create more space on the inside which gives a big car like impression to the passengers and a smart looking exterior so that it stands out in the crowd. The new City has a bold styling and offers ample amount of space on the inside. It also offers some features like lane change camera which comes in handy in Indian traffic conditions.
Honda City gets an all LED headlamp and tail light setup which resembles a lot with other Honda sedans in their portfolio. On the inside, it offers features like electric sunroof, cruise control, touchscreen infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, leather upholstery and so on to make it more comfortable.
Honda City will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options. Only the petrol version gets a CVT gearbox option along with manual. The 1.5 litre petrol engine on the all-new City produces 12 Ps and 145 Nm of torque. The 1.5 litre diesel engine generates 100 Ps and 200 Nm of peak torque. The diesel version is available with a manual gearbox only. In due course of time, a CVT automatic gearbox for the diesel trim is also expected. Honda is all set to launch the next-gen City sedan in the market on 15 July 2020.
