After unveiling it in November last year, Honda Cars India Limited (HCIL) has finally launched the 2014 fourth generation City in India. At an on-going event in Delhi, Honda India just revealed the prices and the variant details for the 2014 Honda City.
The all new City offers a total of five variants - E, S, V, SV and VX with both the diesel and the petrol fuel trims. The pricing of the sedan starts at INR 7.42 Lakhs for the base model and ranges upto INR 11.10 Lakhs for top of the line variant.
The 2014 City is available with two engine trims- the out-going 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol motor and a much needed diesel motor in the form of the 1.5-litre i-DTEC which also powers the the younger sibling, Amaze.
The i-VTEC petrol mill pumps out a good 117 bhp @ 6600 rpm of max power and a peak torque of 145 Nm @ 4600 rpm. The top-end variants SV and VX comes with an automatic transmission while the other variants offers a common 5-speed manual transmission. And the 1.5-litre i-DTEC motor produces a max power of 100 bhp @ 3600 rpm and a peak torque of 200 Nm @ 1750. The diesel variants would be coupled only with a six-speed manual transmission. The i-DTEC unit features a lightweight construction including lighter piston and low viscosity oil to achieve the class leading fuel efficiency of 26 kmpl.
The new City is well proportioned and seems like a face-lifted version of its third generation, rather than a significant new design which the past generation models have displayed. The dimension of the car remains unchanged as the car is 4440 mm long and 1695 mm wide. Though the wheelbase of the sedan has grown by 50 mm at 2600 mm and the height by 10 mm at 1495 mm compared to the previous generation model.
