Here we have an artistic rendering of the current-generation Honda City, digitally re-imagined as an estate/station wagon.
Since its introduction in India back in 1997, Honda City has been one of the most popular cars in India. Built on Honda's Global Small Car platform, the City has shared its platform with plenty of other cars, like the Amaze, Jazz, and even the Mobilio (which was on sale from 2014 to 2017). In Japan, there is an estate/station wagon version available as well, but sadly, such cars do not have a market in India. That said, wouldn’t it be interesting to see a Honda-City-based estate car? Well, just take a look below!
Honda City Estate Wagon Render | More Space, More Practical
The video above has been created by Shoeb R Kalania of IndianAutosBlog fame. Regular readers would know that IAB is the sister publication of IndianAuto. The video begins with a stock picture of the current generation Honda City (which is due to be replaced soon). The artist then starts to draw an outline of the rear extension of the car. The tail section gets stretched out, and the car now gets a bigger greenhouse area as well. The boot now also features a hatchback design, which looks simple yet cool.
To add some sporty touches, blacked-out alloy wheels are thrown into the mix. A pair of roof-rails is then added, after which final touches are applied to the design. The car manages to look brilliant, like a low-rider SUV! You can draw a few parallels to the Honda Fit Shuttle, but this City-based estate carries a largely unique look. Mechanically, there has been no change to the car. The wheelbase remains the same, as do the engines.
The current generation Honda City is powered by a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated, inline-4, (i-VTEC) petrol engine. It is capable of generating 120 PS and 145 Nm of peak power and torque. There used to be a 1.5-litre (i-DTEC) diesel engine on sale as well, but it has been temporarily discontinued for now. It will be reintroduced in a BS6 avatar in the next-generation Honda City.
