Engine and Specifications

The new City gets a BS6 compliant 1.5-litre i-VTEC DOHC naturally-aspirated petrol engine which produces max power of 121PS at 6600rpm and max torque of 145Nm at 1750rpm. The new engine generates 2bhp more power than its previous version thanks to twin-cam setup, which improves combustion efficiency, lowers emissions and reduces friction. The petrol motor can be had with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed CVT. It returns decent fuel economies of 17.8kmpl and 18.4kmpl with manual and CVT transmissions, respectively.

The diesel engine of new City remains the same – 1.5-litre powertrain, which generates top power of 100PS and 200Nm. Paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, it delivers a mileage of 24.10kmpl.
