As per recent reports, we’re going to see the 2020 Honda City going on sale in just 2 grades, namely VX and ZX.
The highly-anticipated Honda City 2020 is in its final preparation process to make its way to the showroom floors in India. A recent media report suggests that the fifth-gen Honda City will be available with two trim levels, namely VX and ZX only. These are the top-spec trims options in Honda's variant hierarchy.
The 2020 Honda City will be powered by two BSVI-compliant engines including an all-new 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel unit. Basically, the new 1.5-litre petrol motor is the naturally-aspirated version of the 1.5-litre turbocharged engine of the Honda Civic sold in international markets. It is capable of generating 121 BHP of max power and 155 Nm of peak torque. In comparison to the outgoing 1.5L i-VTEC engine, the new motor puts out 2 BHP more power and 10 Nm more torque. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine, on the other hand, will continue to be in same state of tune. It is designed to produce aa peak power output of 99 BHP and max torque of 200 Nm. It is likely to make use of a 6-speed MT and a CVT as the gearbox options.
As we’ve reported earlier, the fifth-generation Honda City will see an increase in its dimension. It will measure 4,549 mm long, 1,748 mm wide along with 1,489 mm high while its wheelbase measured at 2,600 mm. From these, the new-gen sedan will be 109 mm longer, 53 mm wider and 6 mm shorter than the previous-gen model. We expect the grown dimensions will create more space on the sedan for the upcoming model. 2020 Honda City will be offered with new features like six airbags, Agile Handling Assist, Lane Watching Assist, tyre pressure monitoring system, ABS with EBD, reverse parking camera, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and more.
Bookings for the new-gen Honda City have been unofficially started at Honda dealers. The all-new City is expected to be launched in the coming months with its price estimated at Rs 11 – 16 Lakh (ex-showroom). Do note that the 2020 Honda City will be sold alongside the existing sedan that’s available in the petrol guise only.
