Honda City

  • Smaller front seats
  • head room in the front

Q. Honda City CVT or Hyundai Verna DCT. I am a family person and use my car 90% of the time in the city.

Q. Hi, I own the 2015 Honda City iDTEC. So far I am not happy with the ride quality and cabin noise! I am almost about to switch to Hyundai due to this. Do you really feel the 5th-gen Honda City has improved suspension and ride quality?
  • Yes, the ride quality has improved and is considerably more comfortable than before. We'd highly recommend getting a test drive to experience it yourself since your experience is shared with many existing City owners. The noise insulation has also improved but the diesel clatter is still audible.
  • Thanks Kartikeya ! Got my city zx 2020 last week . You were right about softer suspension and plush ride quality .Its a completely new vehicle .Handling has also been improved ! 5th gen city is amazing car so far .
Q. What are best feature and changes in the new Honda City 2020? Why should I choose this over Toyota Yaris and Hyundai Verna?
  • For details on what is new, check out our first drive review. Compared to the Yaris and Verna, the Citys biggest selling point is the cabin space on offer. It also offers more features than the Yaris, though, it does not better the Verna in terms of equipment.
  • If you are a hard core Honda City fan, then only go for the city. Else the Verna is better.

  • Well honda city has a road presence.But still - the kind of plush seating space and feel good factor which you will get with honda city will stay with you on long term basis.If you seek value for money full fledged sedan in manual transmission - honda city is strong recommended buy even in 2021.

  • 1. Refined engine, very silent cabin.2. Pleasant, soft and relaxed driving experience.3. Smooth gearbox.4. Easy to park, thanks to rear camera with guidelines.5. Looks much better in real life than in photos!6. Feature loaded.7. Comfortable for both the driver and the passengers.8. Premium feel.9. Looks best in black but hard to maintain, so bought silver.Any disadvantages? Not really. For those complaining about rear seat space, for a height of 5,7 the seats are good. In fact I can use the word great for its comfort and premium feel. And for those complaining about performance, this car has more than enough power for the daily driver. SX variant is value for money, it really stands out among all rivals too. ( Priced below base variant of Honda City). It offers almost all features one wants in a car like electric sunroof, rear camera, electric folding mirrors, led DRL, projector headlamps and fog lamps, cornering lamps, 16 inch alloy wheels, rear AC, touchscreen infotainment, 4 speakers + 2 tweeters plus some cool features like digital instrument cluster (looks very modern), wireless charger (it is actually more useful than you think), smart trunk (hands free boot), push button start (with smart key), rear curtain (premium feel), cooled glove box, sliding armrest, auto headlamps, auto IRVM, etc. The list goes on!Some of these features are not offered in other cars while some others are offered only on higher and costly variants. Hyundai superb quality and wide service network is a bonus. For 12 lacs on road price, the petrol 1.5 manual SX variant is a very sweet deal.

  • My daily drive. Offers a mileage around 10-11KMPL in Chennai traffic. Being top end and due ventilated seats keep things in hot and heavy traffic situations. Sunroof have used in ECR night drives. Android auto connectivity for all mobile phones is poor. It disconnects automatically after few seconds or minutes. Car is fully loaded with features. With that comfort is on par with the class competition.Would have liked the brakes feel better or a rear wheel disc, still good for city and highways.Had issues with a rattling sound in the steering column when roads are uneven. The entire steering column was replaced in warranty. That saved huge bucks.
