Updated Nov 10, 2022 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

The all-new Honda City 2020 was finally released just over an hour ago and we've got the pics to prove it! Will the Honda City regain its Sub-compact crown from the pack?

Honda City Turbo 2020 launched in Thailand

They’ve finally done it! After months of rumors and some spied shots of the Honda city's first look, Honda Thailand has unveiled what could probably be the Japanese carmaker's most anticipated release of the year: the seventh-generation Honda City 2020!

It's technically known throughout the ASEAN region as the fifth-generation (as the first two were exclusive to Japan), but we really couldn't care less since the Philippine-market City defined the subcompact market as we know it today.

Let's check out the exclusive photos of the all-new City 2020 with Philkotse.com

The Honda City has been a consistent best-seller for Honda

Honda City 2020: Engine

The standard formula of having a compact body that can seat up to five people in a pinch, haul loads of stuff and run on VTEC is still there, albeit with a few major upgrades. First of all, TURBO, baby! Powering the Honda City 2020 is a 1.0L 3-cylinder DOHC turbocharged VTEC engine, that's good for 120 hp @ 5,500 RPM and 173 Nm of torque at 2,250 RPM.

Be reminded that this is the same engine found in the UK-spec Honda Civic SR, which means that the new City is far from being a pushover. Mated to a standard CVT, the engine boasts of reaching up to 24 km. on a single liter of fuel.

2020 Honda City Turbo: Exterior

Exterior Styling is reminiscent of the 10th generation Honda Civic but remains distinctly its own car with unique LED tail lamps and Daytime Running Lamps. It shares the same platform and chassis as the all-new Honda Jazz introduced last month at the Tokyo Motor Show but, for good or bad, doesn’t share the design language.

Fans of nostalgia who miss the Honda City of the Early 2000s will certainly fanboy over the door-mounted side mirrors, I know I am. 15 inch allow wheels come standard across the board except for the RS model which gets 16 inches.

The all-new Honda City is 4,553 mm long, 1,748 mm wide and 1,467 mm tall but the ride height and position have been adjusted to provide a lower riding feel and better experience when driving the Honda City. I for one cannot wait to try this.

Honda City 2020: Interior

The interior has also seen some changes such as an all-digital information display in between the analog tach and speedometer and an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system right in the middle of the center console that supports both Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Everything else is still there as well as the old trusty hand brake lever, which I personally favor over the electronic ones popping up.

There are multiple variants such as 1.0 Turbo S, 1.0 Turbo V, 1.0 Turbo SV, and 1.0 Turbo RS. The RS variant comes with a complete set of sporty aero parts including a Gloss Black front grille with RS logo emblem, sporty front bumper and grille, LED Headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), LED Fog Lights, Sporty Black Power retractable Side Door Mirror with Turning Light, Gloss Black Trunk Spoiler with an “RS” logo, and new sporty-design 16-inch Alloy Wheels.

Media People Going Crazy over the Honda City

The Honda City will surely bring in customers curious to see a Turbo Vtec City
