Honda City is presented with a 1.5 liter, four cylinder engine offering 119 PS peak power at 6,600 rpm and 145 Nm torque at 4,600 rpm mated to a 5 speed manual and CVT transmission.

Honda City is a four door, five seater sedan, which has been performing well over the years. It has received many updates and managed to score high on the charts in company sales. But in the last few years, post the launch of new Hyundai Verna and Maruti Ciaz, Honda City is no longer the best selling car in the segment. That title now belongs to Maruti Ciaz, followed by Verna and then City. With the launch of new City petrol variant, Honda hopes to add more sales to the City line-up.
