Honda City 2020 on Road Price, Specifications, Feature, and Mileage: The new Honda City made its global debut in Thailand on Monday. The new car is bigger, better and gives more mileage than the current model. The company has not yet announced the launch date for 2020 Honda City, but it is expected that it will be launched in the second half of 2020 in the Indian market. The fifth-generation Honda City is similar to the company’s Accord and Civic.
The front look of the new Honda City looks absolutely fresh. It gets larger and wider chrome grille, revised wraparound LED headlamps with daytime running lights (DRL) and new design fog lamps. Changes have also been made to the design of the car’s bonnet. The rear end of the car features a redesigned rear bumper with LED taillamps in C-shape and reflectors mounted in vertical positions. This luxurious sedan car features multi spoke diamond cut alloy wheels.
Longer and wider than the current model
The new Honda City is 100mm longer and 53mm wider than the current model. However, its height is 28mm and wheelbase is 11mm shorter. The greater length and width means that the new Honda City will get more cabin space than the current model.
Honda City 2020 Interior
The interior of the new city seems inspired by the recent world-making new-generation Honda Jazz. The car features a newly designed dashboard and features such as a newly designed multi functional steering wheel with mounted audio, Bluetooth and cruise control from the new Jazz. Apart from this, it has a new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The interior of the model introduced in Thailand is in black color, while the model in India is expected to be given a beige-on-black theme.

Talking about safety, the new city has features such as 6 airbags, multi-angle rear view camera, ABS, EBD, vehicle stability control and hill start assist.
The Thailand model of the next-generation Honda City will get two engine options. These include a 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder iVTEC turbocharged petrol engine that generates 122bhp of power and 173Nm of torque. This engine is equipped with CVT gearbox. The company claims that this engine gives a mileage of 23.8 kilometers per liter (according to Thailand test cycle). The second is a 1.5-liter hybrid petrol engine. The company claims that this mild-hybrid engine will give 33% more mileage than the standard engine.
BS6 petrol-diesel engines in India
The new Honda City coming to the Indian market will have BS6 compliant 1.5-liter iDTEC diesel and 1.5-liter petrol engine. Like Amaze, a combination of diesel engine-CVT gearbox can be found in the new city. It is not clear whether the variant with mild hybrid engine will be launched in India or not.
