According to sources Honda has begun work on the next gen Honda City sedan, which is expected to hit Indian showrooms by 2020. The fourth gen City, currently on sale, made its public debut in 2014. While details on the fifth-gen City are scarce as of now, one could expect the car to get sharper styling cues and more up market materials, similar to the upcoming Honda Civic, which would also be on sale in India by the time next-gen City arrives.
Sources tell us that Honda is also readying a petrol hybrid version for the City. This variant will be a mild-hybrid alternative and won’t get costlier, fully-fledged hybrid technology that is available on other Honda models sold abroad. However, a decision of launching the mild-hybrid City will depend on the government's auto policy on future mobility.
The next-gen City will also have an
updated engine line-up under its hood. Honda is ready to bear the
high cost of upgrading its current set of diesel engines to clear stringent
BS-VI norms that come into effect in 2020. The company has already begun road
testing the BS-VI ready engine on Indian soil. Honda will simultaneously
upgrade its petrol engine line-up too.
Mahindra Y400 SUV likely to be priced from Rs 22 lakh According to report the Marazzo MPV was recently launched on September 3, 2018 and dealers wanted the MPV to enjoy more floor-space as the brand’s newest launch before introducing more new products. By launching the Y400 on October 9, Mahindra would essentially leave only around a month-long gap between both launches. The Mahindra Prime Zone, as reported by us earlier, will cater to the brand’s newer launches like the Marazzo MPV and the Y400 SUV.
