It’s time to get ready for the next big launch of a Honda car. The popular car maker, Honda is scheduled to unwrap the fifth generation City sedan on November 25, 2019. It is one of the most awaited launches as it gets some amazing updates that are worth mentioning. The facelifted City will be revealed in Thailand. Soon after the official reveal, the company will showcase the model at Bangkok motor show 2019.
Honda will deliver the fifth-gen City first for Thailand buyers followed by India launch in 2020. The car has been spied while on-road test many times in India, as well as other countries and we already, have a glimpse of the car features and design. Although, the car was somewhat camouflaged while it was spotted. The upcoming 2020 Honda City is sportier and high-class with a new design.
The all-new Honda City is outfitted with a huskier mesh radiator grille with extensive chrome bar. At the front, the car is equipped with LED headlamps and a newly designed hood. It also gets a coupe-like roofline running at the side section and bigger multi-spoke alloy wheels. At the rear, you will notice classy looking slimmer taillamps and reworked back bumper. The front of the updated City is based on the Civic and the CR-V SUV.
The interior of the new City is inspired by new Jazz. It will get a luxurious and bigger cabin. The interior will be equipped with an all-new multi-functional steering wheel with mounted controls. It also gets an all-digital instrument console and a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system featuring smartphone connectivity. It will also support other high-end features as well.
In Thailand and the international market, the new City will be available with a turbo-petrol 1.0-litre four-cylinder engine producing 120bhp that satisfies the Eco Car regulations. It will be also powered by a 1.5L petrol unit with the company’s new compact e: HEV mild-hybrid technology. The Indian version will get a BS6 compliant 1.5L diesel unit under the hood producing 100bhp of max power and 200Nm of peak torque.
These new engines will be combined with a 5-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed manual transmission. The reports also suggest a CVT on the option for both units. The company can also release a hybrid variant by 2021. However, the company hasn’t confirmed the report yet. The upcoming City will rival against the likes of Hyundai Verna facelift, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Toyota Yaris, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid.
