New Honda City Debut At 2020 Auto Expo Likely, To Break Cover This Month

  • Oct 14, 2019

The 2020 Honda City is expected to debut at the Auto Expo next year, but the car will first be unveiled in Thailand later this month. The new City is expected to sport a number of major upgrades from its current version which has been on sale since 2014.

The new Honda City has already been spotted in Thailand and India and both test vehicles had similar silhouettes. There was, however, a slight difference in the design of the boot lid and alloy wheels. The front of the car may have the Honda bull horn design flanked by LED headlights identical to the Civic. The car is expected to sport LED taillights.

The cabin of the new Honda City is expected to have extra space and upgraded features. The car may share its dashboard with the upcoming Jazz and have a fully digital instrument cluster. A bigger touchscreen infotainment system is also expected. Other features are likely to include cruise control, rear air-conditioning vents, automatic climate control, and a sunroof.

The 1.5-litre diesel and petrol motors that currently haul the Honda City are almost certainly to be upgraded to BSVI standards. Honda may offer a continuously variable transmission (CVT) option with the diesel model, similar to the Amaze. The petrol motor, in the top-level versions of the new Honda City, may have a mild-hybrid system. It will come as part of the standard equipment on the next-generation Jazz. The leading Japanese automobile manufacturer had earlier announced that it will introduce hybrid vehicles first before going electric.

The price of the new City, with all the upgrades, will command a premium over the car’s existing version which is pegged between ₹9.81 lakh to ₹14.16 lakh. The new Honda City will continue to lock horns with the Skoda Rapid, Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Toyota Yaris.
