We are at the Taj Palace - Delhi, where Honda will launch its all-new fourth generation City sedan today. The next-gen C-Segment sedan has grown bigger, feels more upmarket and even has a couple of segment-first features, but the most important update is that it finally gets a diesel engine.
The petrol version of the City will continue to derive power from the 1.5-litre i-VTEC that now develops 116bhp and 146Nm of torque. It will be available with two transmissions – a five-speed manual or a CVT automatic. The diesel Honda City, on the other hand, uses the new 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine mated to a six-speed manual, delivering 98bhp and 200Nm to the front wheels.
We drove the new Honda City last month and are mighty impressed with the overall package – check our first drive report and video for exact details. The launch ceremony will begin in a few hours time and we are waiting for Honda to announce prices and variant details.
Stay tuned to CarWale as we get you all the dough including prices, variants, features and others details live from the launch function.
