Honda officially unveiled the all-new fifth-generation City earlier this year and the car will officially get a price tag on 15th July 2020. The car was expected to launch much earlier but due to the COVID-19 related lockdown and restrictions, the launch was delayed. Honda has decided to keep both the older generation and the new City in its line-up and this is the first time that it will happen. Even though Honda revealed the feature list of the all-new City, the brand is yet to give us variant-wise details. Well, this leaked brochure gives us a glimpse of all the variants of the upcoming City and its features on T-BHP.
The entry-level all-new Honda City will be known as the V trim that is likely to be offered only in the petrol trim just like the current-generation of the model. Even the base variant will come equipped with integrated LED DRL on the halogen three-barrel projector headlamps. LED rear combination lamps, side marker lamp, all-LED tail lamps and 15-inch alloy wheels. The cabin will get two-tone upholstery, rear AC vents, and safety features including Vehicle Stability Assist, tyre deflation warning system, four airbags, rear parking camera with guideline and Hill Start Assist. Even the base variant of the all-new City will offer 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment with four speakers, push-button start and cruise control system. The base version will be available with manual as well as CVT automatic transmission with the petrol engine.
The VX trim will get 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels and even an electrically controlled sunroof. The cabin is very premium with leather stitched parts, automatic headlamps, coloured MID, G-Force meter, 8-speaker system, auto-dimming IRVM and six airbags. This variant will be available with both petrol and diesel engine options.
The top-end ZX will get the new all-LED headlamps, LED fog lamps and integrated LED guide indicators. The cabin is much plusher with perforated leather upholstery, front and rear centre armrest, automatic folding door mirrors, remote opening and closing of windows and the lane watch camera.
