Honda City 2020 with few improvements and 6 air bags
After conducting various tests in Asian territory, the new generation of the Honda City 2020 was presented in Thailand with the incorporation of different aesthetic elements and equipment that had already been planned during the tests carried out months ago.
Honda planned to save all the information of the new City 2020 for the Thai Auto Show, but the Japanese brand decided that it is better not to wait any longer and revealed that we can expect the renewal of the subcompact based on the Honda Fit.
In relation to the new generation, the City is 4.55 meters long, 1.75 meters wide, 1.47 meters high, added to a wheelbase of 2.59 meters. In the front sector, an impressive chrome ribbon is highlighted along the grill, accompanied by LED technology optics. On the back, the horizontal lights take all eyes due to the striking internal drawing.
In the first instance, there is an important aesthetic heritage, especially in the front part with a grill that closely resembles the new Civic or Accord.
This large chrome eyebrow in front is complemented by a redesigned LED lighting set with daytime running light, which in our country will surely only be seen in top-of-the-range versions as well as the new 15-inch design wheels.
It is known that being mounted on the same platform as the new Fit, the Honda City 2020 will see an improvement in its dimensions, growing in 100 mm long and 53 mm wide.
As expected, the interior will also be redesigned to improve the user experience, one of the points in which the Honda City has had some criticism for not having a quality of materials as expected or having certain elements with a confusing arrangement.
Honda says there will be an improvement in the quality of the elements used inside, as well as more comfortable seats and new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with connectivity to Android Auto and Apple Car play.
During the launch, Honda presented for the first time a variant with sports dyes of the City, which this time bears the letters “RS” as an identifier that it is a different version.
Although it does not add power or some mechanical behavior is modified, the City RS has a series of aesthetic improvements to give it an aggressive style, such as a honey comb hatched grill, a small spoiler in the trunk, details in black chrome, the red color of the special body and unique 16-inch wheels.
128 lb-ft of torque, which will be paired exclusively to a CVT gearbox, although we could see a manual transmission option in countries like Mexico by cost issues and user preference.
Another of the improvements that Honda promises for the new City 2020 is the safety section, because from now on all versions will have 6 airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, ABS brakes, start-up assistant on slopes and reverse camera with parking sensors.
