Honda Cars India have launched an all new petrol variant of the City to the market. It will be the top-spec ZX variant, which will come paired to a manual transmission. Earlier, a CVT transmission was in place for this variant here.
Honda have launched the vehicle at a price of Rs. 12.75 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The top-spec ZX with a manual transmission was launched based on customer demand. The City has been a strong seller for Honda in India and this decision was expected to come sooner than later.
Honda will be offering two new paint schemes, namely Metallic Red and Lunar Silver across all variants of the City. Other than that, rear parking sensors will be available as standard across all variants. The City will also offer LED headlamps, DRL’s, fog lamps, tail-lamps, electric sunroof, diamond cut alloy wheels, six airbags and a 6.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The petrol-spec City ZX will come powered by a 1.5-litre i-VTEC motor. This motor produces 117 BHP of power and 145 Nm of torque. It will be coming mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
Honda offers the City in four trims, namely SV, V, VX and ZX. Variants such as V, VX and ZX will be offered a 6-speed CVT transmission as optional. The City rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and the Toyota Yaris in the largely competitive D-segment of sedans.
