Japanese carmaker Honda today unveiled the all new version of sedan 'City' in India as a part of plans to strengthen its position in the country.

The company, which unveiled the car globally today, will start selling the model to be available both in petrol and diesel variants in India from January next year.

"The all new fourth generation Honda City, which would be available in both petrol and diesel versions, will take the legacy of the car forward," Honda Motor Co Managing Officer Yoshiyuki Matsumoto told reporters here. Currently, Honda City comes with petrol engine only.

The petrol variant of the new Honda City comes with the existing 1.5 litre iVTEC engine, while the diesel variant would have the recently launched 1.5 iDTEC diesel motor.

The company, which is present in the country through a wholly-owned subsidiary Honda Cars India, currently sells five models in the country, including the compact sedan Amaze and hatchback Brio.

Honda Cars India sold 73,000 units in last fiscal and aims to market 1.20 lakh cars this financial year on the back of new launches.

The company had launched the first generation Honda City in India in 1998 and has so far sold 4.3 lakh units of the car.
