It gets a new chrome grille, full LED headlights, L-shaped LED turn indicators and integrated LED DRLs. The headlights of the Honda Civic and 2020 Honda City have a faint similarity. The rear design looks smart with the Z-shaped 3D wrap around LED taillamps. It sits on 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels and gets a shark fin antenna.

On tape the Honda City new model measures 4.549 mm in length, 1,748 mm in width, and 1,489 mm in height. When the India-spec City is compared to the Thai-spec car it is 4 mm shorter and 22 mm taller. The Thai-spec City has a very low ground clearance of 135 mm. The Indian model will definitely offer better ground clearance.
Honda Cars India has informed that the new City will be sold alongside the fourth-generation model. The new City will be offered with both petrol and diesel engines. The petrol unit is a new 1.5 litre i-VTEC unit that produces 121 PS of power at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm if torque at 4,300 rpm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual transmission and CVT.
The updated 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine complies with the BS6 emission norms. It develops 100 PS of maximum power at 3,600 rpm and 200 Nm of maximum torque at 1,750 rpm. It will be linked to a 6-speed manual transmission at launch. Unlike what reports have been claiming for a long time now, the diesel engine variant won’t be available with a CVT. Maybe the CVT option will follow at a later stage.
