Honda will bring the next-generation of its popular mid-size sedan, the City to India by 2020. The Japanese automaker will introduce a mild-hybrid version of the sedan as well, alongside the petrol and diesel ones. We can expect the next-gen City to come with some new technology and features when launched.
Not much details have come out but expect it to happen more sooner than later. On design, we can expect the City to borrow some cues from the Civic premium sedan, launching here in early-2019. Coming to its mild hybrid technology, Honda will be dependent on the Indian government’s policy for better mobility in the future.
Honda will give the next-generation City BS-VI compliant engines which will co-incide with the government’s initiative of BS-VI norms coming into effect from April-2020. Details will arrive soon regarding the petrol and diesel engines powering the car. We can expect the City to come with a diesel-CVT variant, as seen on the Amaze.
The next-gen City will renew its rivalry with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna when launched. India has always been a strong market for the City brand, with each generation of the car being accepted with open arms since its launch here in January 1998. We can expect the next-generation City to carry forward the legacy and continue its winning-run here in the country.
