Currently, in the Indian market, it would be the first car in its segment to get the ADAS technology. So the safety in this car would be better than other cars in its competition.

We expect that the Honda City would be launched at a price between Rs 18 lakhs to Rs 20 lakhs (ex-showroom). This would be a very attractive pricing as Skoda Slavia’s top trim goes up to Rs 17.79 lakhs (ex-showroom) and the top trim of Honda City’s current generation costs Rs 15.34 lakhs (ex-showroom). Considering all the features and technology used in the City Hybrid, it definitely makes sense for you to wait for it.
