The facelifted Honda City is about to arrive in India to Honda Cars India. Media reports show that facelifted Honda City will debut in India in late March or early April. Honda has reportedly started testing the redesigned City. Additionally, the company’s Tapukara manufacturing facility has begun receiving parts for the redesigned mid-size vehicle that will be produced in large quantities.
Honda recently released the first teaser of its upcoming SUV, which will make its global debut during the summer of 2023. The new Honda SUV has been designed at Honda R&D (Research and Development) Asia Pacific.
The fifth generation Honda City was launched in India in July 2020. However, this model was introduced without discontinuing the fourth-generation Honda City. Both models are still sold side by side in the country.
Honda currently sells the City E: HEV (Hybrid), City (5th generation and 4th generation), Amaze, WR-V and Jazz in the Indian market. The company will reportedly stop selling the fifth-generation City diesel, fourth-generation City, WR-V and Jazz before the Real Driving Emission (RDE) norms kick in on April 1.
A facelifted version of the Honda City’s fifth generation will debut. There are two engines available. There are two of these: the 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel (100PS/200Nm) and the 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol (121PS/145Nm). The automatic CVT or 6-speed MT transmission that comes with the petrol engine is available. The only transmission choice for the diesel engine is a 6-speed manual transmission; there is no automatic transmission option. The unique feature of the Honda City Facelift is that only gasoline engines will be offered.
The Honda City is priced between Rs 11.87 Lakh to Rs 15.62 Lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. It rivals the likes of Skoda Slavia, Volkswagen Virtus, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz in its segment. The Honda City facelift could be priced slightly higher than the old version.
