The fifth-generation Honda City is ready to make its debut on 16th March, 2020. While its official unveiling is just a week away, the new details of the vehicle have surfaced on the web. The 2020 Honda City will come in three trims packed with a 1.5L DOHC VTEC petrol engine boosted with VTC (variable timing control).
The sedan’s all-new gasoline engine has different stroke and bore than the existing i-VTEC motor. Its NVH levels will be better than the outgoing engine. In fact, the new motor will deliver good low-end performance along with improved handling. The new-generation City will be bigger in size measuring 4533mm in length, 748mm in width and 467mm in height.
The height and wheelbase, however, will be reduced by 28mm and 11mm respectively. This means, the 2020 Honda City will be bigger than its arch rivals – Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Hyundai Verna. The latter will soon receive a mid-life update. Interior of the new City will surely be more upmarket than the existing one. In fact, material quality will also be improved.
