Up front, LED headlights are creating a new style for City 2020. Next, there is a large grille accompanied by a thick strip made of chrome metal. The logo, as usual, is positioned in the middle. As looking at these features, we can assume that this City is somehow similar to the Honda Accord, the recent Honda model.

The sides of this Honda City 2020 will bring back retro feeling when side mirrors are directly connected to the door. This is the signature design for Honda City from 2003 to 2008.  Besides, it is likely that the new model also has multi-spoke alloy wheels. This kind of wheel seems not really fit the overall look.

At the rears, the City 2020 also has a significant combination of tail lights beside the outstanding trunk lid. The slimmer wraparound light is linked to the body with a lower position. About the rear windshield, it is not really similar to a coupe’s but still, like the Civic’s.
