The fifth-generation Honda City has been teased on the brand’s official website. The model, which has been spied testing in India on multiple occasions, is expected to be launched later this year. Upon launch, the new City will rival the Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Skoda Rapid and the Volkswagen Vento.

Unveiled in Thailand last year, the new Honda City features an all-new design and updated interiors. Although details regarding the powertrain options have not been confirmed, we expect the new-gen Honda City to be offered with a 1.5-litre NA petrol unit and a 1.5-litre diesel unit. The former could be available with a dual-motor hybrid system while the latter would be a BS6-compliant model tuned to produce 99bhp and 200Nm of torque. Transmission options may include a six-speed manual transmission and a CVT unit.
