The launch of new-gen Honda City is just around the corner. The C-segment sedan will launch in India within a few weeks from now. Recently, the sedan was spotted getting tested on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. The test vehicle spotted testing was equipped with emission control hardware, which means that the upcoming 2020 Honda City will employ a BS-VI compliant motor to meet the upcoming stringent emission norms, which will come into action by 1st April 2020. Given below is the video from Team-BHP that shows the new-gen Honda City in action.
The 2020 Honda City will be the fifth-gen model of the C-segment sedan. Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento. The sedan has been already introduced in the Thai-market. The Thai-spec Honda City is only offered with a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor along with both manual and automatic gearbox options. In India, the new-gen City will continue to get the 1.5-litre, i- VTEC naturally-aspirated petrol unit, which puts out 119 PS of power and 145 Nm of peak torque. Moreover, Honda will also offer the new-gen City with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder, turbocharged oil-burner that produces power and torque outputs of 100 PS and 200 Nm. Transmission duties will be done by a 6-speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox. This will be the first time that Honda is offering a diesel variant of the City with an automatic gearbox. One can also expect the petrol-powered City to be offered with a mild-hybrid powertrain for enhanced fuel-efficiency.
