The fifth-generation Honda City is ready to hit showrooms post lockdown. While the 2020 City will be the successor to the current-generation model, the latter one isn’t going anywhere. According to a fresh media report, the Japanese carmaker will sell the 2020 Honda City alongside the existing model.
Interestingly, the current-generation City might serve the fleet market and the new one might get a ‘suffix’ in the name (like Innova ‘Crysta’). The report further claims that the sedan’s fourth-generation will witness significant price cut.
The 2020 Honda City will come in three trim levels – V, VX and ZX – with petrol and diesel engine options. Powering the petrol model will be the BS6-compliant 1.5L i-VTEC motor with different stroke and bore offering better low-end performance. The gasoline mill will be paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The diesel variants will come with a 1.5L i-DTEC unit with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a CVT automatic transmission. Read: Honda ZR-V Name Registered; Hinting New Compact SUV

The sedan will also have an updated 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Interestingly, it will be the first car in India to come with the Alexa Remote compatibility. Read – Sportier New Honda City RS Variant is Not Coming to India
The dual-tone interior theme with faux-brushed aluminum trim enhances it a premium look. Features such as full LED headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, lighter shade seats and a sunroof will be reserved for the top end trim. The sedan will also receive Honda’s lane watch camera, reverse camera, Honda Connect, automatic climate control, traction control, hill start assist, low-tyre pressure warning system and more.
