The Japanese automaker Honda, is in the process to update their prime sedan, the Honda City sedan globally. The best selling product for Honda in India, City has been a poster boy for the brand for long now, we suppose for more than two decades. The all new 2020 Honda city is about to feature the following details , pertaining to the gearbox, engine and launch details.
Each five year , the Honda city is about to get to another generation with some huge amount of changes on board. The car-maker is testing the new City in Thailand and will make its global debut there only, with a possible launch in India during the Auto Expo 2020. This will be the fifth generation of the popular mid-size sedan and it is likely to get a long-awaited hybrid engine.
Another addition to the new 2020 Honda City would be a CVT gearbox in the diesel engine, akin to the CVT in petrol engine. Currently, the Honda City petrol is only offered with a 7-Step CVT gearbox, and is also accompanied by paddle shifters, but we doubt whether the upcoming diesel CVT would have paddle shifters. Both the 1.5-litre iVTEC and iDTEC engines will be BS-VI compliant once launched in India. The current gen City produces 118bhp/175Nm and 99bhp/200Nm in petrol and diesel engines respectively.
Considering the new design, the Honda City has been spotted multiple times wearing a production-ready body and will have a design inspired from the Accord sedan, which means the new City will be bigger in size, freeing up a lot of space inside the cabin. And will be also having
- More squarish rear profile with a new bumper
- New Taillights and Tailgate.
- Sloping roof-line.
- Integrated roof spoiler.
- New prominent Front grille.
- Chrome treatments.
- New Angular headlamps with LED DRL’s.
Inside the cabin, is expected to have a new touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a roomy sun-roof, much more Legroom and shoulder room for passengers, and a connected car facility with application controls is also expected.
