  • Fifth-gen City gets all-new 1.5-litre petrol engine paired with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox
  • Available in three trims – V, VX and ZX
  • Petrol-CVT combination available across all three variants

Honda recently launched its all-new, fifth-generation City midsize sedan in the country. Priced from Rs 10.90-14.65 lakh, the new City is pricier than its competition but is also larger than its predecessor – which will remain on sale – and comes packed with more tech and an all-new petrol engine. Here is a look at what’s on offer:

What are the engine options available?

Buyers have a choice of two engine options – one petrol and one diesel. The petrol unit is an all-new 121hp, 1.5-litre naturally aspirated unit (DOHC as against the older model’s SOHC) and is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. A CVT automatic option is also available. The diesel is the familiar 1.5-litre unit that first debuted in BS6-spec form in the Honda Amaze. This engine is good for 100hp and 200Nm of torque and is available solely with a 6-speed manual.
