The sixth generation Honda City was introduced in international markets back in January 2014, and received its mid-life facelift in 2017. Now according to Headlightmag, the popular subcompact will enter its 7th generation, making its debut towards the end of this year with Thailand as its first market.
Although Honda hasn’t officially released any design sketches at the moment, however it is largely believed to be thoroughly inspired by latest Honda Accord & the Insight Hybrid. The possible design options were discussed in this post published earlier.
As for the technical information, according to reports the new City alongside the conventional 1.5 liter VTEC, will also come equipped with a downsized 1.0 liter three cylinder engine. A hybrid variant with the i-MMD dual-motor powertrain comprising a 1.5-litre petrol engine and two electric motors is also expected.
The 7th gen Honda City will make its debut in Thailand as a 2020 model towards the end of this year, and will begin reaching global markets thereafter.
