Honda has announced that it will be launching the all-new fifth-generation Honda City on July 15, 2020, in the Indian Market. Honda was supposed to launch the fifth-generation City earlier this year, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the launch had to be postponed. The 2020 City features a host of changes on inside and out over the new model.
We recently got a chance to drive the all-new honda city and for detailed information, you can go ahead and read the first-drive review. The new car measures around 4,549mm in length, 1,748mm in width, 1,489mm in height, and has a 2,600mm long wheelbase, which makes the new City slightly longer and wider than the outgoing model on sale. However, the wheelbase length of the new sedan remains the same as the fourth generation one.
At the front, the new Honda City gets full-LED headlamps (nine lights placed in series) with integrated LED DRL and L-shaped LED turn signal. Coming to the side, the first thing that will catch one's attention is the 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheel, that is finished in a dual-tone paint scheme. The sedan features sporty shoulder lines and creases that run the entire length of the car from the headlight to the taillight.
On the inside, the sedan gets an all-new dashboard with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay. It also gets the segment-first Alexa Remote voice assistance feature along with the brand's latest connected technology with the Telematics Control Unit (TCU) that offer over 32 connected features.
Other features on the inside are a multi-functional steering wheel, a seven-inch TFT display with analogue dials flanked on either side, paddle shifters, cruise control, a push-button start with keyless entry, an electric sunroof, a revised climate control unit, rear sunshade, and ambient lighting and many more.
Mechanically, the 2020 Honda City is offered with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.5-litre i-VTEC (DOHC) produces 120bhp of power and 145Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel unit churns out 100bhp of power and 200Nm of peak torque. Both the units come mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox, with an optional seven-speed CVT automatic transmission offered on the petrol variants only.
Safety features on the Honda City include handling assist, hill start assist, dual front i-SRS airbags, a lane-monitoring camera on the left-wing mirror that will relay feed to the centre screen, vehicle stability assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, six airbags, ABS with EBD, etc.
Thoughts About The All-New Honda City
Honda has equipped the fifth-generation City with many best-in-class features and will be available in both petrol and diesel powertrain. Once launched, the Honda City will go up against the likes of the new Hyundai Verna, the Skoda Rapid, the Volkswagen Vento, and the Toyota Yaris in the Indian market.
