In a typical scenario, the 2020 Honda City would’ve launched sometime soon but the Coronavirus Outbreak has certainly delayed it. this time and would have the nitty-gritty of all the highlights offered. While the complete features and specs of the Indian bound city are still unknown, a leaked brochure of the top-end variant, Honda City ZX gives us some insights about the car which is yet to be officially launched.
The all-new Honda City ZX will get LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, six airbags, traction control, and an electronic stability system with hill assistant. The 2020 City will come equipped with a tyre pressure warning system, and the rear middle passenger seat will get a 3 point seat belt. The new car comes with a reverse camera as a standard and it will also feature the Honda Lane Watch camera, as seen on the Civic.
The 2020 Honda City will get an upgraded infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen frame that supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and surprisingly, the model will be the first car compatible with the Alexa Remote. Honda will provide a new high-performance network service – Honda Connect – that will have a telematics control unit that can share the same traffic conditions remotely.
The 2020 Honda City will not offer full computer dial such as a refreshed Hyundai Verna. The instruments will include a light speedometer and a 7.0-inch tachometer, HD, MID full shading. Equally attractive entries will be G-meters la supercars like the Nissan GT-R. It is regulated by the embedded control of the sound frame and the motion control but a major change is a change in the capture of the atmosphere’s control frame. The framework of the City’s last touch was ridiculous and in fact, something Highlanders will release for future models.
As with the active City ZX, comfortable seats and sunroof will also be provided. The new City ZX will also feature integrated dashboard features that should create a consistent upmarket feel.
Honda City will be sold in BS6 compliant 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine and a turbo charged diesel engine. The fifth-generation City will also see the introduction of a diesel-compatible variant with a CVT gearbox.
Considering that the new cost of the new City will be higher than the current one, it will currently be available on the front side of the mid-section. Prices for the 2020 Honda City starts at Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom India) and the Diesel top end will be priced in the range of Rs 15 lakhs.
