Kolarov, 28, joined City from Serie A outfit Lazio in 2010, penning a five-year deal.
But with his original contract due to expire next summer the Premier League champions have moved to tie down the full-back for the foreseeable future.
"I am very happy and very proud of this new contract. I will give to this club probably the best stages of my football career and I am very happy that I continue with this club which feels now like my home," Kolarov told City's official website.
"Last season I played a lot and I think I proved to people in the club that they can believe in me and the result was that I was offered a new contract and I was happy to sign.
"When we won two trophies last season [the Premier League title and the Capital One Cup], I was happy with what we did and I think it's good for the club and for me that we are here now.
"I think we can do a lot more things in the future. We've won everything in England and I think we can do a lot more in Europe.
"So we'll try to repeat what we did in England and try to win something in Europe. The most important thing in football is the result and I think we can do a lot more in the future."
Kolarov has made 99 appearances for City in all competitions since arriving at the Etihad Stadium, scoring 15 goals in the process.
The Serbia international has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the Capital One Cup and the Community Shield during his time at the club.
