Next-generation Honda City turned into these days spotted trying out in India, suggesting that the famous C Segment sedan is slated to make its world optimal in the direction of the cease of this yr. A Malaysian guide has provided you with a speculative rendering of the new City primarily based on the undercover agent shots. The prototype indicates that the brand new model greater or less retains its form in profile, but the front and rear fascias were subjected to huge redecoration.
Nevertheless, the rendering appears to have captured the adjustments with reasonable accuracy. Let’s begin with the rear. The closely contoured boot lid and split-LED rear lights remind us of the Audi A3 sedan, but the lights signature is particular. The reported man or woman traces on the perimeters do render the mid-length sedan a sporty appeal.

The front fascia will follow Honda’s modern-day design philosophy, which entails an edgy nose with large chrome detail, glossy LED headlamps, LED foglights, and razor-sharp chin. Overall, the 2020 Honda City could emerge to be more modern-day and sportier compared to its predecessor. We anticipate the interior too to function modern-day design and color topic. It goes without saying that the cutting-edge Honda will function present-day connectivity and infotainment capabilities. Underpinned with the aid of the progressed model of the present platform, we count on the 2020 City to be slightly large (to this point, the City has gotten bigger with every technology). So of the route, a comprehensive protection package might be standard, and the body shape could be robust enough to pass the brand new BNVSAP (Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program).
Honda India has formerly stated that it’ll improve its petrol and diesel engines to BS-VI requirements despite dwindling calls for diesel variations. The City’s present 1.Five-liter i-VTEC petrol and i-DTEC diesel motors could be carried forward. The petrol motor develops 119 hp and one hundred forty-five Nm of torque even as the oil burner is right for one hundred hp and 200 Nm of torque. The petrol engine is available with a 5-MT or a CVT simultaneously as the diesel engine comes with 6-MT. Honda is in all likelihood to introduce a slight-hybrid device with its petrol engine. The 2020 Honda City can be launched in Thailand first. The launch date as according to KeyAuto, is Nov 2019. India’s release was predicted at the 2020 Auto Expo in Feb 2020.
