The Honda City sedan has been on sale in India for a long time. Honda recently introduced the fifth-generation of the sedan in India, which is on sale alongside its older model. The new fifth-generation Honda City comes with a major overhaul in its design, while featuring added equipment and technology as well.
The new fifth-generation Honda City as mentioned comes with significant changes to its design, both on the exterior and interiors. Starting from the outside, the new City features a thick chrome strip at the centre just above the grille, sticking to the brand’s latest design language. Flanking either side of the grille are the sleek LED headlamp units integrated with the LED DRLs. The front bumper houses a large air dam at the centre, with the fog lamps present in rectangular housings at either end.
Moving to the side profile, the new Honda City is longer than its previous generation model. However, the sedan carries forward the simplistic design with minimal styling elements. There is, however, a sharp shoulder line running across the length of the sedan starting from the headlamps and tapering off near the tail lights. Another stand-out element on the sides are the stylish 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
The rear profile of the City sedan comes with sleek Z-shaped wrap-around LED tail lights, which is the stand-out element at the rear. The tail lights are sleek and give a wide appearance to the rear.The rear bumpers also feature reflectors at either end.

The 1.5-lire petrol engine produces 121bhp at 6000rpm and 6600rpm and 145Nm of torque at 4500rpm. This comes mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with the higher variants also offered with the optional CVT automatic transmission.
The diesel engine option also comes in the form of a 1.5-litre unit. It churns out 100bhp at 3600rpm and 200Nm of peak torque at 1750rpm and is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission.
