Honda Cars India recently launched the all-new fifth-generation City sedan in the country. The all-new (2020) Honda City was scheduled to go on sale earlier, however, the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent lockdown across India caused the company to delay the launch of the sedan.

The new Honda City is offered with a starting price tag of Rs 10.90 lakh and goes up all the way to Rs 14.65 lakh for the top-spec variants. All prices are ex-showroom (India).
