When the B-segment is flourishing with introductions of all-new models from car brands: such as the Volkswagen Santana 2018, all-new Suzuki Dzire 2018 and facelifted Suzuki Ciaz 2018 as well as the all-new Toyota Vios 2018. Car enthusiasts are looking for a move by Honda on its City.
Yoichiro Ueno, the Managing Director of Honda Cars India, revealed the Japanese company is hatching a plan for an all-new Honda City.
Honda is planning for a next-gen City
Details about the gas engines are kept a mystery but we are expecting a 1.5L unit on the current City
Ueno informed Autocar India that the next-gen City is due for a launch sometime in 2020 which marks the current model’s six years of age (typical for the Honda City).
The 4-gen city debuted in 2014 and got its facelifted version a year ago which that its native land calls the Honda Grace.
Any more details of the Honda City 2020? There’s not much revealed yet but we are positive it will offer a hybrid model that we have seen on the Japanese-spec City. What’s more, there is a diesel version like the existing India-spec city.
According to the latest auto news, details about the gas engines are kept a mystery but we are expecting a 1.5L unit on the current Honda City. In terms of styling, it is likely to emulate the Honda Civic, its big brother.
