An exclusive rendering from IAB’s master digital artist shows us how the next-gen 2020 City rear-quarter might look like.
The 2020 Honda City is in the offing. During its advanced stage of development, the next-gen City has been spotted in its production-spec body in Thailand. Earlier this month, spy photographers also released a set of spy photos, revealing that the new Honda City had reached India for local running trials. According to these spy images, an IAB’s digital illustrator has worked on a rendering of the new City, giving us some speculations of the car’s rear three quarters.
The 2020 Honda City has been recently rendered for its futuristic exteriror look.
The 2020 Honda City may witness an evolutionary change in terms of its styling design, probably due to the fact that Honda does not want to diverge from the current design approach, one that has been quite highly acclaimed by the customers. However, as suggested by the rendering, the cosmetic updates will be sufficient to make the new-gen sedan look fresher and more elegant.
As seen in the rendered image, the 2020 Honda City sports a well-sculpted rear bumper and boot lit with smoothly-added character lines. The tail lights look flat and attractive on the new model. The side profile features a familiar greenhouse design while the set of 16-inch machine-cut alloy wheels come in a completely new look.
The new-gen City is more likely to sport an evolutionary cosmetic changes with a handful of feature updates.
Earlier spy pictures have dropped serious hints at the front facade of the next-gen Honda City. Though it was often heavily concealed under the skin-tight body camouflage, the all-new sedan is likely to get a thoroughly-refreshed front bumper, aggressive headlamps along with Honda Civic-inspired radiator front grille.
The new City is slated to get an enhancement in terms of convenience and comfort inside the cabin.
The 2020 Honda City will probably come with an entirely revamped interior to meet the lust for greater convenience and comfort amongst buyers. Having said, there will be a slew of new comfort-focused features on the inside of the car, including wireless charging system, new touchscreen for the infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and connectivity supports, by all means, to make it on par with the increasing competition.
The next-gen Honda City will make its official unveilling and launch at 2020 Auto Expo.
The next-gen Honda City will draw the power from a BSVI-spec 1.5-litre i-VETC petrol engine and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel motor option. The former will more likely to be mated to a standard 5-speed manual transmission while the diesel burner might come linked to a 6-speed manual transmission. A CVT will come as an optional option to both these models.
Internationally, the Japanese carmaker revealed its plan to introduce a full-hybrid variant with the i-MMD system in the lineup. The India-spec model will also receive an electrified variant, but it remains to know if it could pack a full-hybrid powertrain or come cheaper with a mild-hybrid version.
The 2020 Honda City will have its official debut coincided with its launch at the upcoming Auto Expo.
