The all new, 2014 avatar of the Honda City is barely a week from being unveiled and we have got wind of some new information on this car. This new Honda City has received a more expectant wait than its predecessors primarily due to one reason – the fact that it will also be available with a 1.5 litre diesel engine.
Both the diesel and the petrol models will have five trim levels namely, E, S, SV, V and VX. The feature list even on the base E variant seems to rather good. This version gets power windows all round, electrically adjustable mirrors, two-tone seats and is expected to be priced at around Rs. 8 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The next higher variant is the S, which comes equipped with steering mounted controls for the audio system, a height adjustable driver’s seat and a rear defogger. In addition to all the previously listed gadgetry, the SV variant also gets climate control, a fin-shaped radio antenna and an armrest for the rear passengers.
The V variant comes with alloy wheels, a touchscreen audio system, fog lights, 12 volt power outlets at the rear, electrically foldable rear view mirrors with integrated turn indicators and a reversing camera. The VX variant is the fully loaded version of the new City and they really have taken the ‘fully loaded’ term to heart. This variant gets everything that the lower models have and add leather seats, door handles finished in chrome, a sunroof and keyless entry with a push button engine ignition. All variants are expected to get ABS, EBD and a driver side airbag. The top 3 variants will be equipped with a front passenger airbag as well.
