2020 Honda City is set to be launched on July 15. The fifth generation Honda City has undergone some key changes in its design which makes it stand out as a very up-market sedan.
Honda designers have revealed what inspired the new design language. In a video shared by the carmaker, the Japanese designers said the look and feel of the car was inspired by imaginations of 6-year old kids.
Satoru Azumi, the chief designer for 2020 Honda City said his team created a design from the perspective of a child’s understanding of a car. Long, sporty and stretched out were the three keywords based on which the basic design of the 2020 Honda City was conceived.
For the exterior design of the car the designers implemented a concept called ‘Standing on the Edge’, which brought in the elements of sportiness and cutting edge.
The 2020 Honda City is characterised by the sharp edge character line that runs across from the LED headlights to the taillights at the rear, creating a straight line just like the shape of the Japanese sword - the Katana Blade.
