Honda City lovers were eagerly waiting for this news, and now, finally, the word is out!
New Honda City India Launch date has been announced and the new car will step into our car market on January 7, 2014.
Bookings for the car are already underway and as is a well known fact, the car will be available with two engine and three transmission options.
The 2014 Honda City petrol will be powered by a 1.5 liter 4 cylinder SOHC i-VTEC motor, which churns out 119 PS of max power. This engine will be available with a 5 speed manual and a CVT transmission. The petrol engine variant of the City has an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 18 kmpl.
The diesel City will borrow its engine from the Honda Amaze. This oil burner has a max power output of 100 PS and peak torque of 200 Nm. For the City though, this engine will come mated to a 6 speed manual transmission (versus the 5 speed manual on Amaze). The 2014 Honda City diesel has an ARAI tested fuel efficiency figure of 26 kmpl, and with this, the new car will become the most economical car in the country. The extra 6th cog has helped achieve this higher figure.
The 2014 Honda City expresses Honda’s new design concept “Exciting H Design” and will be the first model in India to adopt this new design language, which promotes unique character and strong presence. This design concept boasts of a Solid Wing Face, Well Toned Athlete Form body and Finely Honed Surfacing on the exterior.
The 2014 Honda City measures 4440 mm in length (same as the outgoing model), 1695 mm in width (same as outgoing model), 1495 mm in height (10 mm more than the outgoing model) and the wheelbase measures 2600 mm (extended by an additional 50 mm over outgoing model).
