The new Honda City aka Ballade.Here's the newcomer in standard

The company says the new model features a "more premium yet sportier look", adding that a more aggressively styled RS variant will be sold in Thailand.

Other features on the 2020 Honda City also include automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, steering-mounted audio controls, MID on the instrument cluster, automatic start/stop system and sporty aluminium pedals; among others.

At the heart of the new City is a turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine promising to offer the torque of an equivalent naturally aspirated 1.8-liter unit and more performance than the 1.5-liter engine of the previous-generation model.

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, in an article in The Times , questioned how complicit in prejudice an opposition leader would have to be to be considered unfit for office.


The City has been Honda's bread and butter model in India through the years.

Expect the new, fifth-gen Honda City to arrive on our shores sometime around mid-2020. The new model even has wraparound headlights which are sharper-looking and also sports LED projectors and day-time saving lamps.

However, Honda is expected to offer the new City with the same 1.5-litre diesel engine option.

He said, "The Fury fight, Fury has admitted", I didn't know I got up, I didn't know where I was. Finkel is in no doubt that the second fight will result in a favourable outcome for his man.


The new Thai-built three-box model does not reflect the cutesy shape of its sister auto, the Jazz, that was revealed at the Tokyo show in October, nor does it share the hatchback's innovative split A-pillars that improve visibility.

For the starters, the 2020 Honda City will be launched in six colours, including new Ignite Red Metallic which will be reserved exclusively for the RS variant. The machine cut alloy wheels look much better than the outgoing model.

This is where the interior ambience changes in the new City. The City has been the backbone of Honda India's operations for over 20 years, and the carmaker will hope the latest model takes the success story forward.

We can expect some changes in the India-spec model which is now on test. Combined fuel consumption is 4.2 l/100 km (56 mpg US) and Carbon dioxide emissions are rated at 99 g/km, ensuring that the City complies with the Euro 5 standard. The air-con vents get a vertical design as oppose to the horizontal ducts in the current vehicle. The dashboard has been reworked and this time the City sports an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple Carplay with Siri voice control. The small 1.0-liter unit hooked up to a seven-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT) sending 120 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 173 Newton-meters (128 pound-feet) of torque from 2,000 rpm to the wheels. However, Honda is yet to reveal any details of the hybrid powertrain. After its arrival in India, the vehicle could carry forward its 1.5-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine albeit with BSVI compliance. Let us know what you think in the comments.
