Honda City is a household name when people talk about cars and people from all generations can relate to. As the popular premium mid-size sedan hits continues its successful run in the fourth-generation, Honda has launched a new variant to please consumers planning to buy a car in 2019.

2019 Honda City was launched in India with series of upgrades on Thursday, offering customers new variations and worthy additions. From a new grade to attractive colours and safety features, the all-new Honda City is ready to hit the roads.

Honda City 2019 high-end ZX MT is priced at Rs 12.75 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Here are the three new changes introduced in 2019 Honda City:

2019 Honda City Petrol now comes in a new grade – ZX MT, which adds a manual transmission to the top-end petrol variant. Previously Honda City's top-end ZX grade was offered in automatic petrol and diesel models.

Adding to the existing palette of colours, 2019 Honda City gets Lunar Silver Metallic and Radiant Red Metallic finishes, which offers a fresh appeal to the car.

Finally, 2019 Honda City gets rear parking sensors in all variants as a standard accessory. This eliminates the need to have third-party sensors installed in the car or pay extra for the reverse guidance feature in the showroom.

Besides these new additions, the 2019 Honda City will share the same specifications as its predecessor. Below are the key features of Honda City ZX MT (Petrol) for aspirant buyers:
