The new City will remain on sale alongside the fourth-gen City and is expected to command a premium over the latter

Update: Honda has launched the fifth-gen City in India with prices beginning from Rs 10.90 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). You can read more about it here.

Honda has opened pre-bookings for the fifth-gen City ahead of its designated mid-July launch. You can reserve yours for Rs 5,000 through Honda’s website and Rs 21,000 if you visit the showroom. The new City is a step up over the previous generation but will command a handsome premium over the older model. That brings us to the question: how much will the 2020 City be priced at? 

First off, you need to know that it will be the only offering in its segment (apart from the Hyundai Verna) to get a diesel powertrain in addition to the petrol unit. Here’s a quick look at the specifications before moving on to an analysis of the expected ex-showroom prices.





Fuel efficiency as per ARAI

1.5L i-VTEC (Petrol)



121PS @ 6600rpm

145Nm@ 4300rpm

MT - 17.8 kmpl

CVT - 18.4 kmpl

1.5L i-DTEC (Diesel)


100PS @ 3600rpm

200Nm @1750rpm

24.1 kmpl

2020 Honda City Variants


Petrol CVT



Rs 10.75 lakh

Rs 12.20 lakh

Rs 12 lakh


Rs 11.99 lakh

Rs 13.50 lakh

Rs 13.30 lakh


Rs 13.40 lakh

Rs 14.75 lakh

Rs 14.70 lakh

Note: All the above prices are estimates, final prices are likely to vary.

We’re expecting Honda to launch the City at an introductory price to reduce the sticker price shock. At a time of crisis such as this, expect lesser cars to be sold in the next few months.

The City will be loaded with LED illumination units for front and rear, 16-inch alloy wheels, sunroof, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, 7-inch semi-digital instrument cluster, rear AC vents and sunblinds for the rear windshield. 

Its direct nemesis will be the Hyundai Verna as its the only other sedan in the segment that gets a diesel engine option. In fact, the Verna’s powertrain combinations are currently unparalleled in its class. 

Before we sign off, here’s a look at the City rival’s (ex-showroom) price range.
