Honda Cars India is all set to launch their 5th-generation City sedan in the Indian market next month. The company had previously announced that the current (4th-generation) Honda City sedan would be sold alongside the new model in the Indian market.
However, fresh reports from Team-BHP now state that the current City sedan could be discontinued in the coming months. According to the reports, Honda will keep the current model on sale in the Indian market, only until the stocks last. Once all the stocks of the current City sedan are sold, the model will be discontinued for good.
The current Honda City sedan is offered with a single 1.5-litre petrol engine, compliant with the BS6 emission norms. This engine produces 118bhp and 145Nm of peak torque and comes mated to either a manual or CVT transmission unit.
The fifth-generation Honda City though will be offered with a choice of petrol and diesel engine options. This includes a 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 120bhp and 145Nm of torque and is mated to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed CVT automatic.
The diesel unit also comes in the form of a 1.5-litre engine. This churns out 100bhp and 200Nm of peak torque. The diesel unit is mated to a standard six-speed manual, without the option of an automatic transmission.
The new-generation City will also be offered with a host of features and equipment. Honda has also completely redesigned the new City sedan, giving it much more premium design and styling. The new City is also longer, wider and shorter than the current 4th-generation model as well.
The fifth-generation Honda City sedan also for the first time comes with connected technology as well. It also features Alexa, which further brings in 32 connected features and functionality as well.
Thoughts On The Fourth-Generation Honda City Being Discontinued
Honda had previously announced that the fourth-generation City sedan will be sold alongside the new model. However, this doesn't seem to be the case, although there is no official confirmation yet. Once launched, the fifth-generation Honda City will continue to rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento and the Skoda Rapid.
