Honda Cars India has silently updated the City sedan with a couple of safety features ahead of the new norms kicking in from July 1, 2019, in the country. The Japanese automaker has added high-speed alert system and front passenger seat-belt reminder to the entire variant line-up of the sedan. Despite the addition of these two features, the company has not hiked the price of the sedan and it still attracts an introductory price of Rs 9.72 Lakhs which goes as high as Rs 14.07 Lakhs for the top-end variant (Both Ex. Showroom, Delhi).

Talking about the speed alert system, it aware the driver by making beep like sound whenever the speed mark of 80kmph is breached. And, if the sedan crosses the 120kmph speed mark, then it makes continuous beep sounds. The front passenger seat-belt reminder was not on offer in the current model till date. Both these features have been included in the units rolled out after May 28, 2019. This exercise has been carried out to meet the new safety norms that will be in action from July 1, 2019. Honda City already comes with dual front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and rear parking sensors as standard safety features across the entire variant line-up.

Honda City is expected to be unveiled in March next year

The City sedan is available in both petrol and diesel fuel trims in four grades: SV, V, VX and ZX. The flagship ZX trim gets additional safety features in the form of 6-airbags and rear parking camera. Mechanically, the petrol and diesel variants are powered by the 1.5L i-VTEC and 1.5L i-DTEC engines, respectively. The transmission options on offer are a 5-speed manual, CVT automatic, and a 6-speed manual gearbox. The company has started work on the new-gen City and it is expected to break covers by 2020. Reports have indicated that Honda might offer the new sedan with the same mild-hybrid technology that its arch rival Maruti Suzuki Ciaz carries. Honda City is at loggerheads with Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid, Volkswagen Vento and Toyota Yaris in India.
