It will also get six airbags, an updated 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a tyre pressure monitoring system (TMPS), ambient lighting, electric sunroof, connected car tech with Amazon Echo, Google assistant and smartwatch (iOS and Android) integration.

    Honda City e:HEV: powertrain

    The full-hybrid City e:HEV is powered by an Atkinson Cycle 126hp, 253Nm, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine that’s mated to two electric motors. The first motor acts as a generator, while the other is for propulsion. 
    The City e:HEV, which focuses on efficiency, has a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 26.5kpl as it prioritises electric-only mode in start/stop traffic conditions. The strong hybrid powertrain will be mated to an eCVT transmission and gets a battery pack that’s placed in the boot.
