Igarashi also said, "The Asia & Oceania region is an important market for Honda City, with more than 100,000 units sold in the region in 2019 (January to September 2019), which accounts for nearly 70% of Honda City sales worldwide".
The 2020 Honda City will likely be launched in India in early 2020. It's 100mm longer, 53mm wider and 28mm lower than the outgoing model. The fourth-gen City set the benchmark for cabin space at its launch in 2014.
The buzz is that City in its new form could take the battle to Ciaz's backyard. However, the India spec City could range in between Rs 11-15 lakh ex-showroom. It rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and comes with a glossy black front grille to separate it from the standard model. The vehicle comes with distinctive styling at the front, with the thick chrome strip on the front fascia. While the back of the auto on the side of the C-shaped LED taillamps and new design of rear bumpers have been given.
At the back, the new City's wraparound tail-lights extend much further on to the side of the auto. These tail lamps are again finished in LED lighting.

With that, Honda Thailand has been able to reduce the sticker price of the new City by up to 40,000 baht (RM5,538).
In Thailand, the new City will be offered with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 210 BHP and 173 Nm of torque. It's mated to a CVT continuously variable gearbox with seven pre-determined steps that drivers can toggle between using the paddle shift levers.
Thai-spec model will only have one engine and transmission option.
All the four variants of the 2020 Honda City have the same cabin, save for the RS-spec model which has exclusive red cabin highlights announcing its sportier styling. However, Honda is yet to reveal any details of the hybrid powertrain.
The 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol motor of the existing City will be updated soon to meet BSVI emission standards and we expect the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel too to gain similar compliance before April 2020. However, this high-efficiency engine will not be on the cards for the Indian market. Let us know in the comments section below.
