The next generation 2015 Honda City has been in news since some time now. It is being said the upcoming generation of the City sedan would draw heavy inspiration from the Concept C and the cyber space is full of speculations regarding the exterior design of the next City.
Seen here are speculative digital renderings of the next generation Honda City. These renderings belong to Brazilian auto website CarPlace.com.br. It is being said that the next gen City would enter production in Honda’s Brazil manufacturing facility sometime next year.
These renderings are based on the design cues taken from the Honda Concept C concept car that was showcased in Beijing last year. While the production ready version of the Concept C will be unveiled next week, this production spec version of the above mentioned concept car won’t be a replacement to the City.
It is being said that the all new City would be marginally longer and wider than the current gen model. The car is also expected to sport LED fixtures for the tail lamps and projectors for the head lamps.
It may be noted that Honda is known as the maker of a range of world class petrol engines. Over the years, it has pioneered various petrol engine technologies and world over people swear by the car maker’s VTEC motors. While the onslaught of new petrol motors from Honda was on pause since last few years, the car maker has now paved the way for ‘the next big thing’ in low capacity petrol engine technology by recently showcasing the 1.5 Liter-4 cylinder Direct Injection petrol engine.
This engine will make its debut with the next gen City midsize sedan. The new car will also get a VGT version of 1.5 litre iDTEC diesel engine that debuts on the Amaze.
As can be seen, the new wheels on the car in the renders have five bolts instead of four that the current City has. This again is based on the fact that the new car would be more powerful than the current model and would require more fasteners on wheels due to the higher power output.
The new petrol motor produces 127 Bhp of max power and 154 Nm of peak torque. To put things in to perspective, the 1.5 Liter i-VTEC engine that powers the City has a max output of 118 Bhp-145 Nm.
The new 1.5 litre Direct injection petrol motor comes laden with various new technologies like High-tumble port, Low-tension piston rings, Patterned piston coating, Mass EGR, 2-stage relief oil pump, Lightweight engine block construction and Start-Stop system
The new motor, which comes under the banner of the much publicize Honda Earth Dreams Technology, will have high fuel economy and low tail pipe emissions.
