What is special about the diesel variant of the new Honda City?
Honda might have jumped onto the diesel bandwagon late but with Amaze’s success they have acknowledged the need to ‘dieselise’ their offerings. That brings us to the new Honda City diesel variant, one that Honda is banking on to push its sales. Given that the new Honda City diesel variant will have the same engine that is doing the duty in Amaze, the fuel efficiency is expected to hover around the 18-20 KMPL mark.
