Here’s what’s changed in the latest iteration of everybody’s favourite Honda
The 2017 Honda City is the fourth generation of the car to be launched in India. Striking updates on the exterior are the LED headlamps with DRLs inside, connected by a thick slab of chrome bearing the Honda badging, over the honeycomb grille. Also modified is the design for the front fog lamps and the 16-inch alloys the vehicle now runs on. The cabin has also been upgraded with the addition of a touchscreen infotainment system called the Digipad.
The new top-end ZX variant, which also gets four additional airbags, has automatic headlights with an auto-off timer and rain sensing wipers. There’s also a new Modern Steel Metallic exterior colour option. Power continues to be drawn from a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine capable of a maximum power of 119 PS and torque of 145 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The diesel is a 1.5-litre i-DTEC unit that churns out 100 PS, but commands a formidable 200 Nm of torque. For the petrol, transmission options are a 5-speed manual unit and a 7-speed CVT unit, while the diesel variants are only offered with a 6-speed manual gear box. Standard safety equipment include dual SRS front airbags, ABS with EBD, three-point seatbelts with pre-tensioners, pedestrian injury mitigation technology and rear seats compatible with ISOFIX child seats.
