Honda City becomes the highest selling mid-size sedan in 2017 having sold 62,573 units in the calendar year.

The City is Honda's most popular flagship sedan, the City also achieved another feat last year in October where it crossed the seven lakh unit sales milestone in India. In the last calendar year, Honda managed to sell a total of 1,62,102 units. This means, that the City comprises 38.6 per cent of the total Honda sales in 2017.

Yoichiro Ueno, president and CEO, Honda Cars India Ltd, commenting on the City’s accomplishment, said, “2017 has been a milestone year for Honda Cars in India, as our best seller Honda City completes 2 decades of unparalleled success in India. Honda City has emerged as the highest selling mid-size sedan during 2017. I would like to thank our customers for their strong support of the model.”

In its fourth generation now, the City received a comprehensive update last year. The Japanese sedan is available with two powertrain options with three transmissions across 11 variants. The petrol is the iconic famous 1.5-litre i-VTEC putting out 117bhp and 145Nm via a five-speed manual. The diesel is the new i-DTEC mill which produces 99bhp and 200Nm and comes mated to a six-speed manual. There’s also a petrol CVT available across the range (except the base model) and it accounts for about 30 per cent of the City sales.
