New Honda City is launched with a BSVI-compliant petrol engine. The variants of the new Honda City are leaked.
Honda City made its debut in the Indian market two decades ago. During the course of two decades, this premium sedan has built a name for its self as a well-established, highly-trusted brand name in the Indian market. It also successfully grasps a chunk of the market and becomes a top-selling car in the sedan segment. Due to the imminent implementation of the new BSVI emission norms, Honda City is scheduled to receive updates soon. Ahead of the official launch, some details regarding the variant-wise features of the upcoming vehicle are leaked.
According to a recent report, the new Honda City will be available in four trims, SV, V, VX and ZX. It is confirmed Honda’s authorized dealerships have started receiving bookings for the new BSVI-compliant Honda City. Honda City is the first car in the Japanese car manufacturer's line-up to receive BSVI updates.
The BSVI Honda City will make use of the reworked version of the current 1.5-litre petrol engine. The power output remains unaffected by the updates. The petrol engine continues to feature a maximum power of 119 Bhp. About the transmission, Hond City petrol will come with a standard manual gearbox. There is a rumor about the provision of a CVT option on the new Honda City range but Honda has not made any official statement regarding this. On the other hands, the current diesel engine is kept unchanged. Reportedly, Honda is not likely to discontinue the diesel range of the City, meaning that the existing 1.5-litre diesel engine will get its own BSVI updates soon. The launch date of the BSVI-ready Honda City diesel is not confirmed yet. Apart from the revised engines, the Honda City will see no other differences from the existing model.
