2020 Honda City Specifications
The India-made 2020 Honda City measures 4,569 mm in length, 1,748 mm in width and 1,489 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,600 mm. In comparison, the Thai-made 2020 Honda City is 4,553 mm long, 1,748 mm wide and 1,467 mm tall, and it has a 2,589 mm-long wheelbase.
The petrol engine of the India-made 2020 Honda City is a BS-VI 89 kW (121 PS) 1.5-litre (1,498 cc) i-VTEC naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit. The old model uses a BS-VI 87.7 kW (119 PS) 1.5-litre (1,497 cc) i-VTEC naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit. The gross weight of the all-new model (petrol) ranges from 1,482-1,528 kg, which means that it is heavier than the old model (1,438-1,482 kg).
Like the old Honda City, the next-gen Honda City will be offered with a 1.5-litre i-DTEC turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine as well, but in upgraded, BS-VI version, not the BS-IV version. Moreover, while the diesel engine is offered with only a 6-speed manual transmission in the old model, it will be available with even a CVT in the all-new model. What remains to be seen is if the BS-VI diesel engine is introduced at launch or a few months later.
