Honda City Look
In the visual department, the Honda City 2017 has surely upped its ante with all the modifications that have been done to it. The front profile has been completely revamped and now gets a much sharper look than before. There are new LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED fog-lamps, a restyled grille with a thick chrome fixture along with a sharp bumper which sums up the facelift look.
Towards the side, the New City gets new 16-inch alloy wheels which now come with wider tyres. Towards the back, Honda’s designers have kept the changes to the minimum with the rear-profile only getting a minor bumper tweak, which is a honey comb design in its middle along with the incorporation of a boot-lid mounted spoiler for the higher variants. All in all the makeover done in the cosmetic department has indeed made the 2017 Honda City now look a lot more contemporary and stylish while at the same time accentuating its appeal in the premium part of the spectrum.
Honda City Comfort
The Honda City has always had one of the most stylish cabin designs among its competitors. With the generation update, expect this car to get an equally appealing design. That said, Honda will for sure add a premium touch to the interiors, for City being an executive sedan. Consequently, expect it to come with a dual tone cabin colour scheme of black and beige.
Cabin space has always been one of the major strong points of the City. The next-generation model is likely to use an all-new platform. This could translate into improved cabin space. Honda is currently working on re-establishing itself as the manufacturer of premium cars. Hence, we are expecting the Honda City 2020 to have good material quality on the inside.
Honda City Gearbox
The 2019 Honda City line-up is available in both petrol and diesel engines.

Featuring the same engines used in the pre-facelift model, there is no significant change in performance. However, the NVH levels have improved though noise still seeps inside the cabin, hence there is some room for improvement. The low-end power delivery on the diesel engine makes it suitable for city driving. The road grip has also been improved courtesy new 16-inch tyres. The next-gen City will receive BSVI compliant engines, which will offer better NVH levels and performance.Powered by Honda’s 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine, the petrol City is rated at 17.4km/l in manual version opposed to 18km/l in CVT option. Diesel City is claimed to return excellent mileage compared to its petrol counterpart with 25.6km/l of ARAI rated fuel economy.
Honda City Rideing
The specifications of Honda City are so configured that the car offers a wonderful and pleasant drive on both city roads as well as the expressway. The petrol car is powerful for you to cruise at high speeds while the diesel version has a much-needed grunt that gets the accelerator pedal to be highly responsive. The sedan can be powered to a top speed of well over the 160 km/hour mark and can do the 0-100 km/hour round in just a 10 seconds. The radial tubeless tyres provides ample road grip and stability. It is suspended over MacPherson Strut for the front wheel and Torsion Beam for the rear.
Honda City Safety
