The fifth generation of the Honda City will be unveiled by the middle of next month and would launch soon after the onset of the new fiscal
Honda City is among the most popular C-segment sedans in its country. It retails in a price brand of Rs 9.91 lakh to Rs 14.31 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It competes with the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Toyota Yaris and Hyundai Verna. Moreover, the carmaker will introduce the new-gen model of its sedan next month. The upcoming version will offer new looks and features, along with revised powertrain options. Ahead of the launch of the new model, our sources have informed us that the Japanese carmaker is offering discounts of up to Rs 78,000 to clear the leftover stock of the outgoing BSVI Honda CIty.
The discount offers comprise of Rs 38,000 cash discount, Rs 35,000 exchange bonus and Rs 6000 loyalty bonus (for the existing Honda car owners). The fourth generation Honda City was launched in India in January 2014 and received a mid-cycle facelift in February 2017. It has been available with 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options, with the former being sold with an optional CVT.
On the other hand, the fifth-gen Honda City made its public debut in Thailand in November 2019. The design of the new-gen model looks more aggressive and upmarket. The sedan has been spotted several times getting tested on the Indian roads, and the carmaker will unveil the new-gen C-segment sedan in India by mid-March 2020. In terms of design, the new-gen City looks fresher and a tad more radical than the current version. Its aesthetics follow the latest design language of the company.
Our sources inform us that the Japanese carmaker is offering discounts of Rs 78,000 on the fourth generation of Honda's popular C2-segment sedan.
The Honda City continues to employ a thick chrome slab between the LED headlight cluster. The side profile of the car looks more or less similar to the ongoing model. The rear section of the new-gen model employs some major changes; it now gets some smoother curves, new LED taillamps and a bulkier rear bumper, which enhances the sportiness quotient of the car. The India-spec new-gen sedan will derive power from the same BSVI compliant 1.5-litre petrol engine as the current model. Also, the sedan will feature a BSVI-compliant version of the 1.5-litre desel engine of the current model. One can also expect Honda to introduce a new petrol-hybrid variant at a later stage. Moreover, for the very first time, the diesel engine of the car will come paired with a CVT gearbox. The upcoming new-gen model will be slightly pricier than the outgoing car.
