Not only that Honda Atlas skipped the 6th generation model for Pakistan, with the introduction of all new City in international markets, the local assembled 5th gen City has now been left 2 generations behind the global Honda City model which is now in its 7th generation.

Having made its debut in Thailand late last year, the all new Honda City has just made its debut in Indian market and is soon scheduled to go on sale in Malaysia. Since there is a huge fan following of this car in our market, we are just sharing the list of features & equipment of the all new City sedan that has just been introduced in India. We often compare prices of cars across the border and most of the times people tend to justify the overly expensive cars sold here due to higher taxes & currency differences, however the sort of features that are available even with the base model there might drop your jaws since we don’t even get this kind of equipment in local assembled cars that cost twice as much as this.
