Honda has already begun the official road testing of the fifth generation Honda City. With the launch planned for somewhere during third quarter of next year, the fifth generation will serve as the replacement to the current four generation model which was launched back in 2014. Inspite of being under severe camouflage, the new City could be seen following the design leads of its elder Accord elements. The car gets a wider wraparound headlamps supplied with LED elements, a wide grille with a thick chrome strip and a big Honda badge right at the centre. The rear too gets a wraparound taillights with much tapered edge lights which was never spotted in earlier iteration.
If rumours are to be believed, then Honda will supply the fifth generation City with a petrol hybrid engine along with a fully fledged hybrid system. The hybrid system already exists in the current gen City but is reserved for international markets. However, with stricter emission norms, there is a high chance for company bringing the technology to India with the fifth generation. Additionally, the next generation City issued to get a diesel CVT setup which will be borrowed over from Honda Amaze. The Honda City rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Hyundai Verna.
