The 5th generation Honda City will be launched in July and production for it has already started in Honda’s Greater Noida plant, adhering to all the rules and regulations set out by the government. Here’s what we know so far about the new Honda City.

For starters, the new Honda City is longer, wider and taller than its predecessor thanks to its new platform. It also comes with a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating. It can be had with either a 119 bhp, 1.5-litre petrol or a 98 bhp, 1.5-litre diesel engine. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard across the range while the petrol variant will have the option of a CVT with paddle shifters.

Visually, the new City has a much cleaner design and sharp details. With strong character lines along the sides and good proportions, the new City is quite the looker. Full LED headlights, LED tail-lights, and 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels round out the looks of the City.

Moving on to the Inside, the top-end variants of the City get features like an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities, Amazon Alexa integration and Honda’s LaneWatch blind spot monitoring cameras.

Other features include multi-angle rear cameras, a tire pressure monitoring system, rear sunshade, ambient lighting and LED interior lamps.
