Honda plans to introduce CNG variant of City by Diwali

     Honda City was once the segment benchmark car in C Segment. As we have told many times, a lack of diesel option from Honda has made the City the biggest casualty in its portfolio of cars. Honda is now planning to roll out a CNG variant of City to boost its sale. This seems to be a temporary answer by Honda to attract customers till it fits a brand new diesel motor in the City.

     According to sources Honda has been working on the CNG variant of City for some time. The suspension of the car has been strengthened as the CNG tank will be housed in the boot of the car. Also some minor changes to the engine has been done in line with the requirements of a CNG car. The instruement cluster will also show some changes to reflect the CNG requirements.

     The CNG City is likely to be introduced by Diwali. Expect the CNG variant of City to be costlier by Rs 50,000 compared to the petrol car.
