2022 Honda City: Five Things You Need To Know

With a legacy spanning more than two decades in India, the Honda City is still ruling the roost thanks to its cutting-edge design, spacious interiors, and impeccable performance.

Since its inception in 1998, Honda City has evolved to become one of the most-loved sedans in the country. Honda has had stupendous success with each of the previous versions of City and now in its 5th generation, the sedan is continuing its victory march unabatedly. 

The reasons behind City’s popularity are not very difficult to understand: it offers a striking design, spacious interiors, generously equipped cabin, powerful yet fuel-efficient motors, and a strong dealership and service network. In its latest avatar, City has grown in size and with more tech on its side, the level of sophistication has also gone up by a few notches. Read on to find the five more things that make the new Honda City even more desirable than before:  

Elegant Design 


The modern look of Honda City is a unique culmination of elegance and sophistication. The design is timeless and speaks volumes about the hard work that designers have put in to conceptualize the sedan. Up front, the signature chrome bar stretches across the width of the nose which infuses a unique character to the car and that too without losing the finesse of the design. Other design highlights include sharp LED headlamps with uniquely designed reflectors, 16-inch diamond-cut alloys, and Z-shaped wraparound LED taillamps. The profile is well-proportioned and the overall balance attained by the designers is worth commendation. In sum, the new Honda City is neatly designed and its contemporary styling puts it in a league of its own. 

Space and Interiors 


Step inside the cabin of the new Honda City and you'll be greeted by premium black and beige interiors. The generous use of the light brown leather makes the cabin feel airy and beautifully sculpted front seats offer wonderful all-around support.  


Honda has aced up the comfort at the back too with its rear bench that can be easily counted as the most comfortable and supportive. The bench can accommodate three fully grown adults and the best part is that it offers three-point seat belts for all occupants. A slightly raised floor acts as a natural footrest and the 506 litres of boot space is quite accommodating.  



New Honda City is laden with tech and features a long list of equipment including a lane watch camera, sunroof, front, side, and curtain airbags, automatic climate control, and tyre pressure monitoring system among others.  


Steering wheel also features a host of controls that help you to access the various features of the first-in-segment 7-inch color instrument panel with analogue speedometer and digital tachometer. There are many other first-in-segment features such as G-force meter, 8-speaker surround sound system, Eco assist and Econ modes indicator, and digital speed and cruise control display.  


The 8-inch touch screen is very legible and thanks to optical bonding technology, the reflection from the screen is very well contained. The new City gets the updated version of Honda's connectivity technology that offers Alexa Voice assist to perform a range of functions remotely. For example, you can pre-cool the City by asking Alexa, or get the details of the level of fuel in the car. 

Engines and Performance 


Honda is renowned for its engines and performance and the new City is no different in these aspects. The 1.5-litre V-TECH DOHC motor is super refined and a real delight to use both in the city and out on the highway. Good for 121PS and 145Nm, the engine offers strong tractability throughout the rev-range. The taller gears add to the driving convenience besides helping the car to achieve higher fuel-efficiency figures.  


The 1.5-liter diesel, on the other hand, is a mile muncher. It’s refined, and offers excellent performance in addition to coming across as a very frugal unit. The turbo lag is contained well and the mapping of the engine has been done in the manner that it delivers power in an absolute linear manner. Both petrol and diesel engines have 6-speed manual transmission with the former one getting optional CVT. 

Ownership experience


With a pan-India support of more than 300 dealerships, Honda City offers a complete peace of mind ownership experience. All the company's touchpoints are very well equipped and with a warranty of 3 years/unlimited km, you get an amazing sense of reassurance. You can also customize the new City with a host of accessory packages to lend it an exclusive look. 



New Honda City has successfully established itself as a benchmark in the sedan segment - be it style, space, engines, or equipment. Further adding to the supremacy of the sedan is its full hybrid system that not only enhances the performance but also aids the fuel-efficiency of the car. The Honda City Hybrid is available in international markets and will be introduced in India soon. Unlike the mild-hybrid systems offered by rivals, this full-hybrid system captures the essence of the integrated system and bolsters City’s credentials as the Innovation Leader in the industry.
