Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The 2014 Honda City was launched in India last week. Even before the car was launched, Honda had received 9,000 pre-bookings for the new City, with this number swelling to 9,931 as of January 9th.

We were informed by Honda Car India’s Senior Vice-President & Director of Sales & Marketing, Mr. Shigeru Yamazaki, that over 70 percent of the bookings were made for the new City diesel variant.

The diesel-powered City claims the title of India’s most fuel efficient diesel car, with an ARAI claimed 26 km/l. It uses the same 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine as the Amaze, though the 5-speed gearbox is replaced with a 6-speed unit. Though the City diesel produces 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque (identical to the Amaze), it manages to deliver 0.2 km/l more than the Amaze.

The petrol engine of the new City is the same 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine as the previous generation model. However, engineers have retuned it to produce 1 PS and 1 Nm more than the outgoing model, and as a result, the City petrol outputs 119 PS and 145 Nm of torque. It is available with a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic transmission.

The new City has been priced from INR 7.42 lakhs – INR 11.1 lakhs ex-Showroom, New Delhi.
