Just like the Ertiga, expect the new XL6 too to come with a six-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
Honda City Hybrid
Honda City is one of the most popular cars in India for quite a long time. This midsize sedan is all set to renew its appeal with the upcoming e:HEV variant. The upcoming Honda City Hybrid is slated to launch in India on April 14. While the visual appeal of the sedan would be similar to the outgoing model, expect it to come technologically much more advanced and upgraded.
The hybrid powertrain onboard the sedan would use dual electric motors paired with the 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine. While one electric motor works as an electric generator, the other acts as a propulsion motor. With this hybrid powertrain, the Honda City hybrid could be the most efficient car in its segment with around 26 kmpl of mileage on offer. To increase fuel efficiency, the car has ditched the gearbox. Expect it to come with a host of ADAS features.
