The new City seeks heavy inspiration from bigger Honda offerings like Civic and Accord, when it comes to design on the outside. While the top-spec variant comes with full LED headlamps, the other variants will feature projector headlamps. LED DRLs and LED tail lights are standard. The top variant is equipped with LED fog lamps as well.
The all-new Honda City is longer, wider and lower than the previous generation model. The top-spec variants come with 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, while the lower ones ride on 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels or 15-inch alloy wheels. The ORVMs are door-mounted.
The top-of-the-line RS variant sports a boot-mounted spoiler and a faux diffuser.
Compared to the old model, which had an asymmetric design for the dashboard, the all-new Honda City has a more conventionally laid out dashboard. The multifunctional steering wheel is all-new and so is the twin-pod analogue instrument console and an MID screen in between. The AC vents are bigger and have vertical layouts unlike in the old model.
The touchscreen infotainment system is a bigger, 8-inch unit and offers Apple Carplay and Android Auto smartphone integration support. Another bigger change is the replacement of the touch-sensitive climate control panel for a conventional three-knob unit. Given the increase in length and wheelbase, expect the 2020 Honda City to have an enhanced sense of space with more legroom and knee room on offer.
For the Indian market, the 2020 Honda City will receive few changes and feature additions. The cabin could have a lighter theme. Additional features will likely include an electric sunroof and rear AC vents.
In terms of safety, the Honda City has got a long list of equipment including front, side and curtain airbags, vehicle stability assist, hill start assist, ISOFIX mounts for child seats and more, all of which are expected to be offered in the Indian version.

In Thailand, Honda has made the all-new City available with a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine (122 PS/173 Nm) and a CVT as standard.
In India, however, Honda will offer the all-new City with 1.5L naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol and 1.5L turbocharged diesel four-cylinder engines. Unlike in the old model, the CVT option will be available in the diesel engine variant as well.
The 2020 Honda City is now being tested on the Indian roads and it will still be a few months before it makes it the showrooms. Its starting price will likely be close to INR 10.50 lakh (ex-showroom.
