As we all know that a new variant of the Honda City is soon on the cards, and we have seen various spy pictures of the sedan. But before the all new Honda City makes its way, Honda probably has lined up the BS-VI update for the existing Honda City.
The official document about the new BS-VI Honda City has been leaked and it has confirmation about the Honda City coming with a BS-VI petrol engine, which will be the tried and tested 1.5-litre I-Vtec motor. It’s a 1497cc, 4-cylinder NA petrol engine which churns out 117.7bhp at 6,600rpm. The good thing is that the motor retains the same power figures as the BS-IV variant.
Honda City will become the first BS-VI car from Honda’s stable and second among its main competitors after the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, while the Hyundai Verna still has a BS-IV engine. The leaked document only confirms the Honda City BS-VI with a manual transmission as of now. We expect the CVT variant to comply with BS-VI soon, along with the Diesel variant.
Also, the document confirmed the car to have four variants. – SV, V, VX and ZX. Even the standard variant will have safety features such as dual airbags, ABS, EBD, high speed alert rear parking sensors. It also gets LED DRLs and shark fin antenna. Coming to the V variant it gets front fog lamps, integrates led turn indicator, 7-inch infotainment system and 8 speakers. The VX variant gets an electric sunroof, automatic folding mirrors and 16-inch alloys. The top variant comes with full LED headlamps and automatic headlight and wipers.
The Honda City with a BS-VI engine will be launched soon this year. The prices are going to increase a bit due to the changes that have been made to make the car BS-VI compliant. It will compete with Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The all-new fifth-generation Honda City is also due for launch next month so you might as well wait for the all-new generation which will come with new engines and features.
