Honda City Hybrid Set To Launch Soon
The Honda City is self-explanatory. This car has been on the Indian market for over two decades and continues to dominate the segment. We previously reported that Honda will introduce the City with a hybrid powertrain in 2021 to improve mileage and performance. The Honda City Hybrid is scheduled to go on sale in May. As a flagship offering, we anticipate the City Hybrid competing with the Slavia 1.5 TSI.
The Honda City hybrid will be equipped with a 1.5L petrol engine paired with a dual electric motor, producing 109ps and 253Nm of peak torque. This 1.5L engine produces 98hp of maximum power and 127Nm of torque on its own. The City is expected to return 28-30kmpl of the overall average with the hybrid engine combination. And these figures will be the best in the industry.
The Honda City hybrid will be equipped with Honda’s i-MMD hybrid technology, which is also used by other Honda vehicles in the company’s global lineup. The hybrid setup is also likely to support three drive modes: one that uses only the electric motors, one that uses only the internal combustion engine (a lock-up clutch directs power to the wheels), and a third that allows for a combination of both.
The all-new 5th Generation Honda City is the segment’s longest and widest sedan. The newly introduced 1.5L i-VTEC DOHC engine with VTC in petrol and 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engines provide quick acceleration and good fuel efficiency. The 5th Generation City is a connected car with Alexa remote capability and is standard across all grades with a next-generation Honda Connect with a telematics control unit and over 32 connected features.
The newly designed platform has a 5-star ASEAN N-CAP rating. The City has a slew of features, including full LED headlamps, a Z-shaped wrap-around LED tail lamp, a 17.7 cm HD full-color TFT meter with a G-meter, a lane watch camera, vehicle stability assist (VSA) with Agile Handling Assist (AHA), and more.
