Expect the new, fifth-gen Honda City to arrive on our shores sometime around mid-2020.
Although it's not as daringly styled as the larger Civic, the new Ballade certainly takes some design inspiration from its larger sibling, particularly at the front end, and potential buyers will also be pleased to know that there's a brand new engine beneath the bonnet - and it's turbocharged.
The interior of the new City looks fresh and quite different than the outgoing model.
HONDA has revealed its fifth-generation City light sedan at the Thailand Motor Expo in Bangkok, introducing a sporty RS variant and debuting the company's new three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. Although its wheelbase than the current model 11mm short is. The Honda City in the global market sits on 15-inch wheels but the India spec model is most likely to get a larger and wider set of wheels. This could be carried forward on the petrol variant of the new City as well. Moreover, the regular S, V, and SV trims will roll on smaller 15-inch wheels but the RS-spec Honda City will use bigger 16-inch wheels in a sportier design. The 7-speed paddle-shift system also offers exciting yet comfortable driving experience, thanks to the cruise control system. The B-segment sedan now gets a smoother and more rounded finish if compared to the previous fourth-generation model.

Mark Milley said at the time that military leaders were protecting the dog's identity. "Nobody's going to mess with Conan". It was a flawless attack and al-Baghdadi is gone", Trump said with Conan at his side.
He added, "As a result of Honda City's achievements and its significance over the past two decades, developing the next-generation Honda City was very challenging, as we aimed to come up with a better-developed model than the previous ones and every other model in this class, along with new value-added by advanced technology features and a lower price for every variant".
Top-spec City models are fitted with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay compatibility and Bluetooth support. There are more changes than meets the eye as the auto is better insulated now thanks to the use of polyurethane spray foam and a chunkier engine undercover to drive down noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels for better comfort.
On the inside, the new City comes with a 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and a twin-dial instrument cluster. After its arrival in India, the vehicle could carry forward its 1.5-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine albeit with BSVI compliance.
In Thailand, the new City is only available with a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine making 90kW at 5500rpm, and 173Nm between 2000 and 4500rpm.
