\"All-new

In November 2013, Honda revealed the all-new City in India. While the Japanese carmaker did share that the subcompact sedan would be available with a 1.5-liter diesel engine along with a 1.5-liter gasoline mill, the power output of both units were not disclosed. Nearly two months later, Honda has finally revealed the specs of the fourth-generation City.

The new City\'s Earth Dream Technology diesel engine produces 99hp and 200Nm of torque. Paired with a newly developed six-speed manual transmission, this engine supposedly yields an industry-best fuel efficiency of 26km/L.

The gasoline-powered 1.5-liter engine, on the other hand, puts out 117hp and 145Nm of torque. Mated to a continuously variable transmission, this powerplant has a fuel efficiency of 18km/L; with a five-speed manual transmission, fuel efficiency slightly dips at 17.8km/L.

Typically Honda, the City\'s interior space makes use of the carmaker\'s \"man maximum, machine minimum\" philosophy, giving the car class-leading rear legroom and head clearance to go with its expansive 510L boot space.

The use of high-tensile steel gives the vehicle a lightweight yet highly rigid body structure, while the new-geometry MacPherson strut front and high-rigidity H-shaped twist beam rear suspensions offer operation stability and comfortable ride. A new electronic power steering system also rewards the driver with a high-quality steering feel.

It\'s not only the City\'s mechanical bits that have been enhanced; it also gets a segment-first automatic air-conditioning system with touchscreen control. Other new additions to the car are rear air-condition vents and rear parking camera with multiple views. In addition, the CVT variant will be equipped with a paddle-shift option, letting the driver enjoy a stick-like driving feel.
