Now Operate Your Honda City Via A Google Device


The carmaker has also added four new features to its Honda Connect app

 

  • Google Assistant brings in ‘Ok Google’ that enables up to 10 voice-controlled features.

  • New features offer access to car location, remote lock/unlock, AC controls, engine status, and service history.

  • New Honda Connect features include valet alert, fuel log analysis, maintenance cost analysis, and special offers.

  • The fifth-gen Honda City retails from Rs 10.99 lakh to Rs 14.94 lakh.

The fifth-gen Honda City is quite the connected model with Honda Connect and Alexa remote capability, and now the carmaker has decided to enhance it further with the addition of Google Assistant. 

With this, the City’s connected features now work with the “Ok Google” voice command to offer up to 10 voice-enabled features that can be operated via Google Assistant-enabled devices, including Google Nest Speakers and Android phones. These features can also be accessed via Alexa-enabled devices or Google’s text-based command functionality as an alternative to voice commands. They include:

  • Remote lock/unlock of doors and AC operation.

  • Access real-time details of door lock/ unlock status,  light on/ off, odometer reading, and engine l status.

  • Find my car.

  • Remote boot opening.

  • Tire deflation status.

  • Battery health status.

  • Time fencing -- a mobile feature where alerts are generated in case a car is accessed in safety duration. Customers can toggle it ON/OFF.

  • Locate my car.

  • Access service history and validity of PUC RSA and insurance.

  • Fuel status. 

In simple terms, if you want to unlock the car, you can simply say “Ok Google, ask Honda to unlock my car door.” Similarly, you can use climate control, by saying “Ok Google, ask Honda to turn on my car’s AC and set the temperature to cool.” 

Moreover, the carmaker has added four more connected features to the Honda Connect app for a total of 36 features. It starts with a detailed fuel log analysis with details such as kilometres driven, cost per km, fuel consumed, and fuel cost. Next up is the cost of maintenance which shows periodic maintenance, general repair, body and paint repair. Valet Alert alerts the user in case the vehicle is driven outside the fence area set during valet parking. The final additional bit is the capability to book value added services and online offers directly through the Honda Connect App.

 

Other key features in the Honda City include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a sunroof, keyless entry with push-button start, auto headlamps, and a tyre pressure monitor. The sedan is powered by either a 121PS/145Nm 1.5-litre petrol or a 100PS/200Nm 1.5-litre diesel engine, paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard and a CVT automatic option for the petrol mill.

Honda offers the fifth-gen City alongside its predecessor, in three variants: V, VX and ZX, at prices ranging from Rs 10.99 lakh to Rs 14.94 lakh (ex-showroom). It rivals the likes of the VW Vento, Skoda Rapid, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris as well as the upcoming VW Vento and Skoda Rapid successors.
