Everything inside the 2020 City is new and there’s not much that is shared with the fourth-gen model. Starting with the digital instrument cluster, it gets configurable screens while retaining the old-school charm of dual-circular dials, unlike the older three-pod cluster. The steering wheel is new and feels as chunky as before, but its buttons are more tactile. What’s also tactile are the AC controls with knurled dials replacing the feather-touch units of the older model. The previous City’s touchscreen seemed dated and that has been addressed with a refreshed system with a smoother interface and good touch sensitivity.
Meanwhile, the dash layout of the new car is much simpler, unlike the blend of materials in the older car. Which is a good thing, but we did expect better quality plastic inside which could have made the City feel more premium. The driving posture is spot on in the new car, but hop into the back seat and the acres of legroom surely take you by surprise. Even the seats are comfy and supportive, despite missing out on adjustable headrest. And lastly, the boot space of the new model is sufficiently large and can swallow some more luggage compared to the older model.
