Honda Cars India has just thrown open bookings for their next big launch – the all-new, 2020 5th generation City sedan. The car will be launched next month, and even as you’re reading this, CarToq’s team members are driving the new car. We’ll not be able to give you our first impressions of the new Honda City until the 30th of this month as there’s an embargo on opinions and pictures of the new car.
What we can tell you is, the new Honda City is substantially larger than the 4th generation model, which will continue to be on sale alongside the new version. To book the new car, you can either visit a Honda dealership near you, or better still, log into Honda’s online booking platform called ‘Honda From Home‘. We suggest the latter route given the raging pandemic. Click here to book the new Honda City in a few simple steps.
