Honda City– a beloved car for all, and a dream for many. Honda has been selling the City in India for over 2 decades now, and it has been one of the best cars in its segment for a very long time. Value for money, safe, reliable and comfortable are a few things that come to mind when we think Honda City. Not to mention, the best in class 1.5L Naturally Aspirated engine is an absolute hoot to drive. Honda wants the City to be cleaner and greener, which is why they’re working on a hybrid variant that might launch in India in 2022!

Honda City Hybrid

The City Hybrid in Thailand and Malaysia gets some premium features like an electronic parking brake, adaptive cruise, auto-emergency braking and more ADAS features. The Indian spec City Hybrid should also get these features, considering that it will be priced significantly higher than the petrol variant. It will also get rear-disc brakes since the car is heavier and has more power and torque.
