  • The Aura is taller than the City by 31mm.
  • The City has a longer wheelbase than the Aura; by 150mm.
  • The City has 104 litres more boot space than the Aura.
  • The Aura has 165mm ground clearance. There are no official figures for New Honda City 2020 (5th Gen) ground clearance at the moment. We expect it to be around 165mm, which is the bare minimum clearance acceptable for sedans and hatchbacks in India. The SUVs have 180mm or higher ground clearance.
  • The new City’s length technically puts it in the D segment as it’s more than 4.5m. A long profile gives the City an unmatched road presence even for a C segment sedan.
