The SV MT variant costs Rs 9,29,900 and the V MT version, Rs 9,99,900. Both prices are ex-showroom Delhi prices.

Honda City 4th Generation Exterior
The Honda City 4th Generation is an improvement over its parent model as it incorporates a premium dual-barrel halogen headlamp with integrated LED DRLs. In addition, the black-coloured chrome grille provides the ideal protection and ventilation for the powerful engine that sits under its hood.
The overall length of 4440mm makes it a comfortable sedan. However, the sedan is comparatively shorter than many vehicles in its niche as it comes with a height of 1495mm. Therefore, it does not have high ground clearance.
The Wrap-around rear combi LED tail lamps add to the overall beauty of this car by matching the headlamps in every respect. The R14 diamond-cut alloy wheels are sturdy enough to bear the vehicle's kerb weight. The shark fin antenna is an innovation as it replaces the conventional antennas and adds to the sedan’s beauty quotient.
