The City never restricts itself within set boundaries. Because just like you, it too has a brave heart - the new i-DTEC and i-VTEC engines.
The innovative next-generation technologies from Earth Dreams portfolio enhance the joy of driving by returning the best ever economy numbers
while taking care of the environment every time the wheels roll. Now that’s a kind of heart that takes you places.
The 1.5L i-DTEC, India’s most fuel efficient diesel engine, gives a high mileage of
26.0 kmpl and max power of 100 ps. Available in the new 6 Speed MT, it’s an all
aluminium construction that runs on low friction technology and thus, lets you
explore the farthest corners with perfect efficiency.
The refined 1.5L i-VTEC petrol engine strikes a perfect balance by providing
an impressive power of 119 ps combined with a mileage of 17.8 kmpl in the
manual transmission. The new Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) with
torque converter, on the other hand, (offers First-In-Segment Paddle Shifters
with high fuel effiency of 18.0 kmpl that makes it Fun-To-Drive & more efficient
than the manual transmission.
Having the greater drive is being bold and fearless, to say the least. That is the reason why the City adorns such a charismatic avatar. Based on
‘Exciting H Design’ philosophy, it roars about its masculinity through Solid Wing Face Chrome Grille, powerful fenders and a perfectly chiseled
body. To complement the whole look, the first-in-class shark fin antenna, electric sunroof and elongated wrap-around tail lamps with
combination lamp lend a sportier stance. Now with a look so dynamic, you’re bound to stand apart.
This is the first time that the Honda City is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine produces 118bhp of power and 145Nm of maximum torque. This engine comes with a five-speed manual and CVT options. The CVT comes with paddle shifts that has seven-speeds set. The second engine on offer is a diesel, the Earth Dreams 1.5-litre i-DTEC. This four cylinder turbo-diesel develops 99bhp of power and 200Nm of peak torque. This engine comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Driveability is one of the strongest points of these engines and even the fuel efficiency they return.
The Honda City interior is in black and beige with metallic accents to make it premium. The three spoke steering wheel gets steering mounted audio controls and paddle shifters behind it for the automatic version. The electronic power steering is adjustable across the range and the driver seat is height adjustable except for the base variant. Automatic climate control with the new touch-panel controller is offered from the SV trim along with rear armrest and front fog lamps. Reverse parking sensors with camera guidance, electrically retractable wing mirrors, chrome finished door handles and a display screen for the infotainment system are offered on the V and VX trims. The VX(O) gets the touch-screen display for its infotainment system with a six speaker setup.
On the safety front, ABS with EBD and electronic brake assist are standard along with dual front airbags. The automatic gets hill-hold control. The top spec VX trim gets electrically adjustable sunroof and an electronic anti-glare internal rear-view mirror.
The 1498 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 24 kmpl in city and 26 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 15 kmpl on urban roads and 17 kmpl and freeways, respectively.
The Honda City has been the benchmark for C-segment sedans and the current car continues to offer an excellent package to the Indian car buyer. While its competitors like Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid are left behind in terms of space, it leaves its prime competitor, the Maruti Ciaz behind with its powerful but frugal engines. The City, though, loses out on the value-for-money tag with its premium.
