The refreshed 2023 Honda City is about to arrive, featuring some important updates. As far as we know, the new model will debut later this year, powered by the same hybrid technology that will also be used on the upcoming Honda CR-V and the new generation of Honda Jazz. This means it will have under the hood an Atkinson 1.5-liter petrol engine, coupled with an electric motor.
The 1.5-liter petrol engine will repordatly produce 98 horsepower and 127nm torque, while the electric motor will have around 110 HP and 253nm. Beside the new engine, the forthcoming model will also get some exterior changes, followed by an updated interior as well.
2023 Honda City Design
The new 2023 Honda City is a car that has been inspired by the Honda Civic. It looks attractive, featuring very sleek LED headlamps, a swooping bonnet and a mesh radiator grille. For 2023YM, we notice a wider chrome bar that connects the headlights.
The profile is also eye-catchy thanks to a coupe roofline and multi-spoke alloys. No less is an attractive rear, which hosts some changes as well. The rear dominates by a new split-LED taillights and a revised bumper.
More Comfort Inside
The 2023 Honda City is likely to be underpinned by a new platform, which should make this model longer and wider than the current one. This means we can expect an increased cabin space, resulting in more comfort, especially for the rear seat passengers.
Just like the exterior, the interior of the new City will be stylish. As far as we know, the manufacturer will add more quality materials, a new dashboard design, and comfier seats. Honda sensing suit should come standard, and it includes better safety and driver-assistive technologies. Some of them are Road Departure Mitigation System, Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic sight recognition, Lane Keeps Assist, and much more.
2023 Honda City Engine Specs
Just like the upcoming Honda CR-V and Honda Jazz, the forthcoming 2023 Honda City will use the same hybrid system. From available information, we can expect an Atkinson 1.5-liter petrol engine connected to an electric motor. The petrol engine should develop 98 horsepower and 127nm torque, while the electric motor, according to information around 110 HP and 253nm. The exact total power figures are not yet available.
Considering that the hybrid variant will be lighter than the outgoing model, we expect it to be 0.5 seconds faster. Right now, we don’t have exact information about transmission, but many assume that Honda will use the proven sex-speed automatic as standard.
2023 Honda City Release Date, Price
The 2023 Honda City will arrive later this year with Honda’s i-MMD mild-hybrid system. The new model is slated to make its global debut first in Thailand, followed by a launch in other ASEAN markets.
Unfortunately, there is no information while this model reaches the shore of the USA. As for pricing, at the moment of writing this post, the manufacturer didn’t reveal any information. However, from the information that we got, buyers should expect a slight increase over the previous generation.
