The new 2020 City betters its outgoing model when it comes to fuel efficiency but can it better its other rivals as well?

The launch of the 2020 Honda City got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. As things have opened up once again, Honda is getting ready to launch the latest iteration of the sedan. In the events leading up to its launch, Honda has revealed some technical specifications of the sedan including its ARAI certified fuel efficiency. Let’s see how it matches up to that of its rivals.

When it comes to petrols, there are a lot of options to pick from. New car buyers have the option of not only choosing between a manual and an automatic, but different types of powertrain options like turbo-petrol as well. Not only that, the Maruti Ciaz here offers a mild-hybrid system too for anyone looking to make their daily drive a bit greener.

When it comes to a manual transmission, the Ciaz with its mild-hybrid system is able to return the best fuel efficiency and is the only sedan that crosses the 20kmpl mark. When it comes to automatics the Ciaz is once again the winner but it is followed pretty closely by the 7-speed DCT of the Verna. A real life comparison between the two should be interesting and could even change the established order.

Your choices will be limited when it comes to diesels. Once the new City is launched, you will be able to pick between it and the Verna. The Verna edges over the City as it offers an automatic transmission option, which the City doesn’t. Also, its engine makes more power, more torque and returns better fuel efficiency as well when you compare the figures of their manual transmission versions.

Of course the City could still take the lead when it comes to fuel efficiency in the real world, but more on that once we drive these two cars side by side.
