Honda has launched the top-spec ZX petrol variant of the Honda City with manual transmission at Rs 12.75 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Until now, the top-spec petrol City was available with a CVT only. Honda says it has been introduced “in response to high demand for top-spec petrol variant in manual transmission from City buyers.”

The Honda City ZX variant is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. Over the VX, the ZX variant offers six airbags, auto LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, LED fog lamps, leather upholstery and rain sensing wipers.

Along with the new variant, Honda has also introduced rear parking sensors as standard across the range. Other standard safety features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

While Honda has updated the basic safety net, the carmaker has not introduced the Digipad 2 infotainment system on the Honda City. The updated infotainment system debuted with the second-gen Amaze and was later introduced on the updated Jazz. It is a surprising omission, since majority of other cars in its class already get a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.

Honda has also introduced two new exterior colours for the Honda City: Radiant Red Metallic and Lunar Silver Metallic. Both of these were also first introduced with the second-gen Honda Amaze, which went on sale in 2018.

Mechanically, the City carries forward a set of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. While the petrol engine makes 119PS/145Nm, the diesel engine is good for 100PS/200Nm. The petrol engine is available with the 5-speed MT and a CVT, while the diesel gets a 6-speed MT only. As far as fuel economy is concerned, the City has claimed figures of 17.4kmpl (MT)/18kmpl (CVT) and 25.1kmpl for petrol and diesel, respectively.

The introduction of the top-spec petrol manual variant will further help the City to take on its rivals like the Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and the Toyota Yaris, which are already available with a manual transmission in their top-spec variants.
