New 2020 Honda City is finally going to be unveiled in Thailand next month, following which we are expecting it to be seen in India late next year.
After being tight-lipped about its upcoming products in India, Honda Car India have finally revealed some details about the next generation of their popular sedan. The new 2020 Honda City will finally be revealed in the global markets on 25th November.
The new sedan has been spied testing globally as well as on the Indian roads. It will go through a major upgrade which will make the new Honda City look different from its outgoing version.
Talking about the design first, the sedan now looks a bit sportier. The front and rear bumpers are tweaked and so is the tail portion. There will be a new set of headlamps and tail lamps as well. The alloy wheels look like the ones in the outgoing version.
Under the hood, the same 1.5 Litre petrol and diesel engines will get BS-6 compliance. In their current state, the petrol engine produces 115 BHP and 142 Nm of peak torque and the diesel one puts out 100 BHP and 200 Nm of peak torque.
The new version might see a mild-hybrid engine, i.e, the 1.5 Litre petrol engine with a small electric motor. Also, there are reports suggesting that a 1.0 Litre turbo-petrol engine might also come on board the new City. The transmission options would include a 5-speed MT for petrol and petrol-hybrid and a 6-speed MT for the diesel variant. CVT gearbox will finally be introduced on the diesel engine, just like the scenario with Amaze.
New features that are expected, include a Refreshed Touchscreen Infotainment System With Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, Fully Digital Instrument Console, Front Parking Sensors, LED Projector Headlamps, New Alloy Wheels, Ventilated Seats and Electric Driver Seat Adjustment.
We expect the new Honda City to be launched in India by the second half of 2020. Right now, it has reportedly opened the bookings for City BS-6 petrol. We are expecting just an engine upgrade now, but the new generation to be launched later. The current price range of Honda City is Rs 9.81 Lakhs up to 14.05 Lakhs (Ex-showroom).
