The 2020 Honda City is almost here after a long delay due to the nationwide lockdown. Set to be launched tomorrow, the 2020 Honda City has been one of the most anticipated sedans of the year. It’s larger, more spacious and loaded to the gills with features. Here are five things you need to know about the upcoming City:

Two Citys Under One Roof!

Yes, that’s right. Now you can choose from two Citys as the fourth-generation Honda City will be sold alongside the fifth-gen model. So if you’re on a budget and want a tried and tested car, you can pick up the older City. But if you desire a relatively premium sedan, the fifth-gen City is the way to go. 

Can Shame Cars From A Segment Above

That’s because the City comes loaded to the gills with features. Some standout bits include a semi-digital instrument cluster featuring a 7-inch colour display, connected car technology with Alexa remote compatibility, 9-unit LED array headlamps, Honda’s Lane Watch Camera (part of blind spot monitoring system).

Features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, climate control, steering mounted audio control, a sunroof and keyless entry with push button start have been retained from the fourth-gen City. On the safety front, it comes with six airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors with camera. Have a look at the City’s variant-wise features here

Longer And Wider…

… despite featuring an identical wheelbase. That’s because the 2020 Honda City now utilises an heavily revised platform of the fourth-gen model. It’s also more spacious than the fourth-gen model, courtesy a slimmer dashboard and scooped out seatbacks. That said, headroom is at a premium. Here’s a look at its dimensions:
