New Delhi: By March 2023, Indian consumers will be able to buy the redesigned fifth generation City sedan from Japanese automaker Honda. The car will get a distinct makeover and will get cosmetic improvements.
Additionally, a larger cabin with several tech features will be available. The four-wheeler will no longer be offered with a diesel engine and will instead opt for gasoline and gasoline-hybrid powertrains.
Since its launch in India in 2020, the fifth generation Honda City is about to get its first update. Apart from the cosmetic improvements, the petrol-hybrid powertrain will now be available in more trims than the previous model.
