CNG ready Honda City hits the road
Premium carmaker Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) today launched its new modified 'Honda City' which is compatible with CNG bi-fuel option.
The new Honda City will be available in V grade which will get retrofitted by a Honda approved CNG kit at all the company's dealerships in 28 cities where CNG fuel option is available.
"We are extremely happy to bring the City with a CNG option for our customers. Adapting the CNG technology is another step to keep low cost of ownership for our customers and will add to the appeal of the car, as it will not only be cheaper to run and maintain but also eco-friendly," HCIL senior vice president Jnaneswar Sen said.
The automaker has appointed Rohan BRC as the authorised dealer for providing the CNG kit.
The modified Honda City will come with a 2-year warranty as standard value for all buyers.
To enhance the performance, the modified grade of the City has an optimised 1.5L, 4 cylinder i-VTEC engine and the suspension has been modified to adjust the additional weight of the CNG cylinder to offer similar driving experience as that of the petrol version City.
The new Honda City is fully loaded with various active and passive safety features, including ABS with Brake Assist, Dual SRS airbags, pre-tensioner seat belts.
The complete range of the City will now be available in the following: Corporate, E, S MT/AT, V MT/AT, V (Leather with Sunroof) MT/AT, V (AVN) MT/AT (new) and V MT modified for CNG kit fitment (new).
The price of the City range (ex-showroom Delhi) ranges between Rs 7.26 lakh and Rs 10.52 lakh.
