The fifth-generation (2020) Honda City is all set for a global debut on November 25 in Thailand. The car has already been spotted testing several times, albeit in a heavily camouflaged avatar, and is expected to be rolled out in India next year.



The Japanese automobile major recently updated the current City’s petrol motor to the BS-VI standard and bookings for the car have already commenced. The next-generation City is likely to be an upgraded version of the existing version. It may have a direct fuel injection system to return better mileage and enhanced performance. The motor will be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox while a continuously variable transmission (CVT) would come as an option.



A new petrol-hybrid model of the City is likely to debut in the Thailand-specific version. Its hybrid version uses Honda’s intelligent multi-mode driving (i-MMD) technology. The new-generation Hond Jazz recently got a similar powertrain. The hybrid Honda City, however, may not be offered in India for the time being. The Minato-headquartered company is expected to offer the new-generation City with an optional 1.5-litre BS-VI diesel version with CVT, like the Amaze.



The exterior of the new-generation Honda City may retain the features of the latest Accord and Civic models. The car will be bigger in size. The cabin may sport major changes with premium features like a large central touchscreen display unit, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and sunroof. The new Honda City may come with connected car technology. The cabin could be identical to the New Jazz premium hatchback.



The City has been one of the most popular midsized sedans in the Indian market. The car’s next-generation model is expected to command an ex-showroom entry-level price of ₹10 lakh. It will continue to lock horns with the Skoda Rapid, Maruti Ciaz, and Toyota Yaris. The upcoming Hyundai Verna facelift will also be its segment competitor.
