Honda Is Likely To launch The New-Generation City Alongside Current Models

Honda is planning to sell the outgoing Honda City sedan alongside the new models at the same time. This news was confirmed according to a report by Autocar India. Moreover, the new Honda City is likely to get a suffix in the Indian Market, just like the new City in Thailand is called the City Turbo. Unfortunately, the turbo petrol variant is not going to make its way to our shores.

Thoughts About The New Honda City

Since its inception in India, Honda City has always been a very successful model for the company. However, the new 2020 model looks very refreshing and offers a host of features that will help it gain traction in the market. Once launched, the new City will lock horns with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the Toyota Yaris, the Volkswagen Vento, and the 2020 Skoda Rapid.
