Honda has completely revealed the details of the 2020 City ahead of its launch in the Indian market. The company is expected to launch the new sedan by the end of this month. The 2020 City features a host of changes on inside and out over the new model.
The new-gen Honda City design is inspired by the Japanese Katana blade, a type of curved sword used by ancient samurai. A strong character line runs right from the headlamp to the tail lamp defining its shape and gives the car a distinguishingly precise and aerodynamic impression.
It features Full-LED headlamps with nine lights placed in series, an Integrated LED DRL and L-shaped LED turn signal at the front. The rear of the sedan features a Z-shaped wrap-around LED tail-lamps. It also features a 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheel design with the dual-tone paint scheme.
Moving to the inside of the fifth-generation sedan, the company is calling the interior design language as the "Ambitious Beauty". The new design makes the interiors feel premium with easy to use features and functionality. Sitting at the centre of the all-new dashboard is an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a segment-first Alexa Remote voice assistance feature. It will also feature the brand's latest connected technology with the Telematics Control Unit (TCU) that offer over 32 connected features.
Other updates made to the interiors of the sedan includes a new multi-functional steering wheel, a segment-first seven-inch TFT display with analogue dials flanked on either side. Another segment feature is a G-meter to measure the cornering forces, which are only found on performance cars. It also features paddle shifters, cruise control, a push-button start with keyless entry, an electric sunroof, and a revised climate control unit with physical rotary knobs, rear sunshade, and ambient lighting; among others.
The fifth-generation Honda City has been equipped with many best-in-class safety features. This includes handling assist, hill start assist and dual front i-SRS airbags. Other safety features include a lane-monitoring camera on the left-wing mirror that will relay feed to the centre screen, vehicle stability assist, a (TPMS) Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, six airbags, ABS with EBD and more.
Speaking about the changes made under the bonnet, the 2020 Honda City will be offered with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.5-litre i-VTEC (DOHC) Double Over-Head Cam engine will produce 120bhp and 145Nm of torque. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel unit will churn out 100bhp and 200Nm of torque. Both engines come mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox, with an optional seven-speed CVT automatic transmission offered on the petrol variants.
The Honda City rivals the new Hyundai Verna, the Skoda Rapid, the Volkswagen Vento, and the Toyota Yaris in the Indian market. With all the new changes and added features to the new sedan, it is expected to receive a price increase as compared to the current-gen model, which is also expected to be sold alongside the new model in the market.
