These updates are added to the new city to target a large range of buyers, especially to a younger and sportier section of buyers in the age groups of 20 to 40 years. The new Honda City is being introduced with an ‘H Design Concept’ (Human Centric Design Element) and appeals to all the five senses due to its sleek cross motion exterior concept, dynamic and spacious interior design and technological equipment which is the best in its class.
Measuring 4440mm in length and at a height of 1495mm, interiors of 4th Generation Honda City sport advanced textures and comfort features and it comes in with an superior ‘Man Maximum, Machine Minimum’ package with added shoulder, knee and leg space which have been increased by 40mm, 70mm and 60mm respectively as compared to that seen in the 3rd Generation Honda City.
Exteriors sport a bold sleek cross motion design concept. The new City bears a low front face and extended bumpers with four head lamps. Sides are clear cut while a wider stance is visible at the rear end with more dynamic fenders. A sun roof has been added for the first time in a Honda City, thus ensuring that the 4th Generation City will indeed be a status symbol for buyers.
Though bookings have already opened at dealerships, the car will be launched in the coming weeks while deliveries are expected to start by early 2014. The new Honda City will come in with both petrol and diesel engines. Its 1.5 liter i-VTEC petrol engine will possess the best balance of outstanding power and superb performance, while its 1.5 liter i-DTEC diesel engine will be based on the EARTHDREAMS Series which has proved to be a resounding success in Amaze, both where mileage and performance is concerned while being highly environmentally friendly. The Honda Design Team has worked excessively with these two engines which are seen in a lightweight all aluminum crankshaft and piston.
Infotainment features abound on the new Honda City which sports a 5” monitor with LCD display, hands free telephone and steering mounted controls besides FM/AM radio, Music/CD, Data CD, 8 speakers for high quality sound and 4 power outlets for convenient charging of smartphones for all occupants. A Multi Information Combination Meter indicates fuel consumption, temperature, cruising range and other driver centric updates while other features include smart key system, shark fin antenna, touch panel, smart key and one push smart entry system.
