Honda City (4-star NCAP) Turns Turtle at High Speed, Keeps All Safe

Honda City has been a preferred choice for a whole bunch of people looking for a premium mid-size sedan in our market for a long time. 

A Honda City (4-star NCAP) managed to keep its occupants safe after hitting a parked Maruti Swift. City has been a consistent volume churner for Honda despite tough competition from the likes of Hyundai Verna and Maruti Ciaz. The latest entrant in the segment is the Skoda Slavia which is why Honda has announced the arrival of the new City hybrid that is bound to launch in India soon. For now, let us check out the performance of the City in an unfortunate but miraculous scenario.

The combined output of this unique powertrain stands at a decent 126 hp and 253 Nm of peak power and torque. The transmission duties will be carried by e-CVT automatic gearbox.
