Honda Cars India has started teasing the upcoming BS 6 2020 City facelift ahead of its launch in the country. It has been learnt that the new-generation Honda City will be officially launched in April 2020 with a bunch of cosmetic updates both outside and inside the cabin. The new sedan will be bigger and more spacious than before while carrying the same 1.5L petrol and diesel engines, albeit in compliance with BS 6 emission norms.
Dimensionally, the 2020 Honda City will be longer and wider by nearly 113mm and 53mm, respectively, than the present model. Though, the height and wheelbase are lesser than the ongoing model. As for the styling, it is evident from the teaser image that front fascia will boast of sharper elements. It will have sleeker LED headlamps with daytime running lamps (DRLs) while the grille, bumper and fog lamp units have also gone under the hammer for a fresh appearance. The silhouette has been carried over from the ongoing model but the rear-end will flaunt newly designed LED tail lamp cluster and new bumper.
The cabin will feature an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while an electric sunroof is a new addition to the sedan. Other features include digital instrument cluster with MID, rear AC vents and cruise control etc. to name a few. The company has equipped the 2020 City with a plethora of safety features in form of 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) and ISOFIX child seat anchors as standard. Mechanically, the same 1.5L petrol and diesel engines will be updated to BS 6 emission levels with almost identical power output and torque performance as the BS 4 model. The transmission options are not known yet but we expect a 6-speed manual and a CVT gearbox in offing.
