Similarly, many other features could be tailored for the Indian market - one of the biggest markets for the auto globally.

The new City comes with a new exterior and interior; also gets an RS trim. Honda hosted the global premiere of the City now sold in India in late 2013.

Igarashi also said, "The Asia & Oceania region is an important market for Honda City, with more than 100,000 units sold in the region in 2019 (January to September 2019), which accounts for nearly 70% of Honda City sales worldwide".

HONDA has revealed its fifth-generation City light sedan at the Thailand Motor Expo in Bangkok, introducing a sporty RS variant and debuting the company's new three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. However, the new City is also 28mm lower and it sits on an 11mm shorter wheelbase.

Honda City 2020 is all set to make its way into India by mid of next year and promises to rile up the sedan segment in the country. Also, the new City is now EURO 5 compliant, which means it is now BS-VI compliant too. Along with a new fascia, the rear end gets its share of revision with newly designed taillamps and bumpers. The LED strip for the daytime running lights (DRLs) is placed above the headlamp cluster, right below the Civic-like plastic panel which extrudes from the grille and into the headlamps.

Of the other specs worthy of note, the new City retains a 40-litre fuel tank but weighs-in at 1,165kg - 65kg heavier than the vehicle it replaces. As a matter of fact, Honda says the cabin is more spacious than before as a result of switching to the same underpinnings as the new Jazz/Fit. The B-segment sedan now gets a smoother and more rounded finish if compared to the previous fourth-generation model. The new-generation Honda City looks inspired by the Honda Accord, but there are several unique design elements as well.

All the four variants of the 2020 Honda City will source power from the same 1.0-litre VTEC Turbo turbocharged three-cylinder engine which delivers 122 PS and 173 Nm. The latter include an 8-inch Advanced Touch Display Audio with Apple CarPlay and Siri Voice Control, Multi-information Display (MID) with lighting, automatic air conditioning, multi-function steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity. Combined fuel consumption is 4.2 l/100 km (56 mpg US) and Carbon dioxide emissions are rated at 99 g/km, ensuring that the City complies with the Euro 5 standard. Do you like the changes Honda has made to its popular subcompact sedan? The engine is then mated to a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) gearbox to provide a fuel efficiency figure of 23.8 km/l.
