2020 Honda City is all set to launch next month, However, the car has been recently spotted in flesh, out on an open road.
The launch of 2020 Honda City is just around the corner. The carmaker has confirmed that it will take place in mid of July. The production of the 2020 model has already commenced. Honda has also started accepting the booking for the car at a sum of Rs. 21,000 at any Honda dealership, while for Rs. 5,000, the car can be booked at Honda’s online portal. All of it was scheduled to take place in March, earlier this year, but the pathogen outbreak caused a delay in the launch of 2020 Honda City. However, Honda has been good at hiding the car away from paparazzi all this while. Not anymore, since the car has been recently snapped in all of its glory, and can easily be mistaken for a Civic by untrained eyes.
The car spotted in flesh wears a Rediant Red Metallic paint scheme. It is the top-spec ZX variant that will come loaded to the gills. It can be seen fitted with all-LED headlamps and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Honda will sell the all-new City alongside the outgoing model. However, the new one will be the longest and widest car in its segment. It measures 4,549 mm in length and 1,748 mm in width, while the wheelbase is identical to the outgoing model at 2,600 mm.
Talking of the powertrain options, Honda will offer the 2020 City with 2 engine options – 1.5L petrol and 1.5L diesel. The former will produce a segment-leading power figure of 121 PS, whereas the latter will churn out a peak power output of 100 PS. The 2020 City will come with a 6-speed MT as standard, but the top-spec petrol variants will also get the option of a CVT.
In terms of design, Honda has upped the game with the City this time. While the outgoing City sports a wedge-shaped design, the new-gen City gets the sedan specific 3-box silhouette. Now, there’s a long bonnet at the front and a proportionate boot at the rear. Also, the car is lower by 6 mm, therefore it does look appealing with a noteworthy stance. The new-gen City is expected to be priced well over Rs. 12.00 lakh mark, but expect the low-spec VX grade to be loaded with a slew of equipment.
