The Honda City has been one of the most sought-after mid range sedans in the world since its debut in year 1996. In India, the car has been the best selling in Honda’s portfolio. Now, the company is planning to launch a diesel version of this car in the Indian market. The decision has been taken in the view of rising demand for diesel-run cars as there is a considerable gap between the price of petrol and diesel in the country.
The Honda City diesel variant is expected to come powered by a 1.4L iCTDi (intelligent Common Rail Turbocharged Direct Injection) diesel engine along with a maximum power output of up to 100bhp. However, the company is yet to disclose any information regarding the specifications of Honda City diesel engine as it is still in the study and research stage.
The Honda City diesel model will be competing with the diesel versions of the likes of Hyundai Verna Transform, Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Optra Magnum and the recently launched Volkswagen Vento. The City diesel is expected to hit the Indian roads by the second half of year 2011, following the launch of diesel variants of its elder siblings like Honda Civic and Honda CR-V. The car is expected to be priced in the segment of sub Rs 10 lakh.
Engine & Specification of Honda City Diesel
As mentioned above, the Honda City diesel model is expected to be launched in the country with a 1.4L iCTDi (intelligent Common Rail Turbocharged Direct Injection) diesel engine that will deliver a maximum power output of up to 100bhp. The Indian version of the City Diesel is expected to come mated with both five-speed manual and automatic transmission versions. However, the company hasn’t disclosed any information regarding the displacement, engine power or transmission of this car.
Performance of Honda City Diesel
Honda City has been highly appreciated by the auto experts for its powerful performance on the India roads. The car carries a sophisticated 5-speed transmission gearbox with paddle shifts that are very handy in handling the car in heavy city traffic. The paddle-shift enables car driver to shift gears without using the clutch pedal. The similar technology is expected to be used in the diesel version of the car. Fuel economy of the car would fall in the range of 13 kmpl to 17 kmpl. The diesel version of City sedan is expected to be a bit faster as compared to its petrol counterpart and would be capable of breaking the speed barrier of 100 km/h under 10 seconds.
Exterior, Interior & Safety of Honda City Diesel
The exterior of the car remains dynamically aggressive, thanks to its bold-looking front grille that has been partially borrowed from its elder sibling Civic. While the tail-lamps of the car looks somewhat similar as of BMW 3-series. Inside the car, a dual-tone interior has been offered along with futuristic instrument panel and beige upholstery.
Every inch of inside space has been fully utilized by providing a range of storage spaces along with large head and leg-room. The safety features available with Honda City include ABS (Antilock Brake System) with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), dual front SRS air-bags, active headrests, unique energy-absorbing front fenders, and grille and windshield support structure for ensuring better safety of the passenger in case of sudden collusion.

Below 100bhp power is not enough for a sedan car from Honda in 2012.I expect Honda will use their new 1.6 lit.diesel engine in CITY.January 16, 2012by Joseph
A 1.4 ltr diesel engine for a sedan is a bit disappointing especially when hyundai and skoda/VW have 1.6 ltr quick engines. 1 thing that Honda shud have brought in long time back is the diesel car. Good to head they finally are coming out with one. All the best honda!January 13, 2012by Honda Fan

THIS IS PERFECTLY SURE THAT CAR SHOULD HAVE MORE GROUND CLEARANCE, AND A GOOD & PERFECT SUSPENCION SYSTEM, VERNA FLUDIC HAVING BOTH OF THESE PROBLEM. HONDA MANUFACTURE SHOULD REMEMBER THESE TO THINGS WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT.
NOW A DAYS PAKING SENSOR IN SEDAN IS VERY IMPORTANT.December 13, 2011by PREM KISHAN SARAOGI

Fantastic news from the HONDA stable, bring it on guys to take the competition to new greater heightsDecember 07, 2011by Shibu Soman
This is really a surprise news to all...Honda could have bring it to indian market atleast one year before. However, now it is tough competion to Honda and not easy to chase with Hyundai verna and Volkswagon vento since thy have already captured the markets.December 03, 2011by Baiju Nair
There are many difference between new Honda City Diesel Version and Hyundai Verna fludic like :
Honda City Diesel Hyundai Verna fludic
2 Air Bags 6 Air bags
Average 13 to 18 Kpl 23.5 Kpl
same outlook change the total outlook
and many other differences. I like honda city very much but keeping in view the differences I am confused to select. You are requested to compare the differences with new Hyundai Verna fludic and try to upgrade the features in new honda city diesel verion.December 01, 2011by Rajinder Dogra

I am manu resident of punjab. i am driving honda ivtec
which is on petrol. But one thing i must say that honda is on dicling graph in market due to non availability of diesel engines. People started refusing honda on petrol due to high increase in petrol prices and mind one thing once people started refusing the brand it will not get the position back in indian market such is the case happens with fiat brand.
So plz do some thing about your honda buyers so that they can drive honda city on diesel variants.October 11, 2011by Manu Sharma

Well, the price is too hi compared to verna or fiesta or sunny nissan or SX4.I think the diesel version should be 8to 9 lakhs.What u saya.????September 01, 2011by Renato
Well the price is a bit high and am sure that it cannot beat verna crdi in the pic-up. so better to go for vernaAugust 09, 2011by Jeetu
The car cost is very high maximum must be around 9.50 lacs b'coz comparison to verna diesel,Fiesta Diesel ,SX4 Diesel prices are high.So please reply .
