Default Honda City Petrol to get a 6-speed manual transmission

Saw this news report in TOI:

Quote:
With the BR-V, Honda introduced the 6-speed manual transmission with its 1.5-litre petrol engine. Now that same gearbox is about to make its way into the Honda City.
Quote:
This update to the City might make its way into the country in the festive season, to add a boost to sales.
This may perhaps be due to the pressure Ciaz is putting on the City. I wish Honda gave the City more; in terms of safety, reliability and features, rather than just a 6 speed MT.

With a high revving engine, and a relative narrow power band, a six-speed gearbox is highly desirable. Maybe Honda were unable to engineer in the smoothness and reliability till now.

Quite likely. Despite having shorter throws, the 6 speed MT of the diesel City is quite notchy and rough in comparison to the slick 5 speed gearbox of the petrol.
