Honda City has been among the most favorite sedans since, the time in 1997, when it was introduced in Pakistan. Customers are always looking forward to the upgrades and improvements bring by the Honda Atlas in City. The currently available 5th generation of Honda City was a great deal of progress over its previous model. Now talking about the 6th generation of Honda City, which was globally introduced in 2013 and received a facelift in 2017, the 6th generation of Honda City will soon be replaced by a 7th generation. Still, unfortunately, Honda Atlas Pakistan has yet to replace its 5th generation with a new one. There were rumors last year that may be 5th generation will be replaced by the 7th generation, and Honda Atlas will skip the 6th generation of City. Still, now it is expected that the 6th generation of Honda City is on its way. After the teaser launched by Honda Atlas, that hints a new City to be launched soon, and it has posted a video showing a front headlight with daytime running lights. Some of the CBU units of 6th generation Honda City were imported from Thailand previously, but now it’s time to enjoy the locally assembled new generation of Honda City. It will be manufactured on the same platform as the 5th generation of Honda City, and it will have some changes like a fuel tank which will be placed under the rear seats, and a new steering wheel design along with tilt adjustments.
The 6th generation of Honda City available in Thailand offers five trim levels: S, V, V+, SV, and SV+ trims. The 5th generation in Pakistan was available in i-VTEC, Prosmatec, and Aspire versions with two engine choices. It is not confirmed yet which of the trim levels will be available in the 6th generation of Honda City releasing in Pakistan.

Engine, transmission & Power:
The upcoming Honda City will be offered in two engine choices that are 1.5 liters SOHC i-VTEC inline-4 engine and 1.3 liters i-VTEC 16-valves engine. The 1.5 liters i-VTEC engine produces a maximum of 118 horsepower at 6600 RPM and a 145 Nm torque @ 4600 RPM. The 1.2 liters engine generates a maximum of 89 horsepower and a torque of 114 Nm.

Performance & Drive:
The 6th generation Honda City comes with two engine choices that deliver efficient driving performance. It has a turning radius of 5.3 meters which is ok as far as other sedans, and it will move through the city streets and roads conveniently, but bumps and breakers may disturb the overall performance. The electric power steering is light in weight, and the driver can control the car confidently without any extra effort. The handling maneuvers of this sedan are also easy, making turning and curving around corners easy and talking about its transmission, which offers you a choice of five-speed manual or Continuously Varying Transmission. The Continuously Varying transmission Honda City provides is one of the finest among other sedans, but it is not the sportiest transmission. When comparing manual and CVT, the continuously varying transmission is more smooth and preferred. It is offering the latest features so you can enjoy a comfortable and thrilling ride. The vehicle stability control feature improves the vehicle’s stability by reducing loss of traction, and the Anti-Lock Braking system prevents locking of the brakes in an emergency. You will be given parking sensors for your convenience so you can park your cars safely, and the rearview camera adds assistance in your parking. You can also utilize the facility of cruise control, so you can drive safely on the roads by measuring a safe distance from the upcoming vehicles.
