The Honda City is one of the most popular mid-size sedans in our country, and it competes with cars like Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna in the segment. It has been around for a while and Honda is all set to launch the next generation City in our market. Honda has already launched it in Thailand and we have seen many pictures of the same in the last couple of months. The Honda City has also been a sedan that auto enthusiasts both in India and outside loved to modify. We have featured many such tastefully modified examples on our website in the past. Here we have one such last generation Honda City Hybrid that has been beautifully modified.
The pictures of this beautiful looking Honda City Hybrid has been uploaded by Zero Five on their Facebook page. First things first, the Red colour on this modified City looks really hot. From the pictures it is quite evident that the car has been lowered and the aftermarket alloy wheels give it a more attractive and sporty look.
The car is kept simple from the outside and has almost all the stock parts except for the side fender. It has a small mesh grille that acts as a small hot air vent. Coming to the rear, tail lights retain the stock shape but, the exhaust has been replaced with an aftermarket unit. On the inside, the car gets more modifications like Recaro racing seats and faux carbon fibre inserts on steering wheel. A number of analog meters are installed on the dashboard which gives an impression that some sort of work has gone into the engine as well.
However we do not have the exact information about the modifications done to the engine. As mentioned above, this is Honda City with a 1.5 litre Hybrid petrol engine. It is powered by a 1.5 litre petrol and an electric motor and they generate a maximum of 137 Bhp and 194 Nm of torque when combined. It is mated with a CVT automatic gearbox and is very common in international markets. In India however, this engine option is not available as of now but, there is a possibility that the next-gen City might be launched with a Hybrid verison in Indian market. The all-new City will be launched in India in the next few weeks. The launch was delayed due to the Corona Virus lockdown. The new car will continue to be positioned in the C-Segment.
