Honda City is available in petrol version only and it comes with a 1.5-litre, SOHC, in-line four cylinder i-VTEC engine. The powertrain of the car comes mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic gearbox, which churns out a maximum power output of 116.8bhp. What makes the City so good for city driving is continuous torque even on lower RPMs. You just don't need to change gears so frequently. The mid ranges are also strong but here you miss that punch and the third gear is a bit hard and where you need to change gears a little early. After this, the fourth and fifth gears are smooth and car goes quite well till the 6000rpm mark. The car reaches 150kmph with ease and the highest speed it can achieve is 170kmph and it stays stable even on high speeds. Both the automatic and manual transmissions are smooth and there is a little to no gear lag. The top-end variant City S AT comes with paddle shift which is something you can find only in limited number of cars. Peddle shift allows you to shift gears manually even in a automatic transmission car on a single touch. In a nutshell Honda City is a good urban drive, which comes with a blend of performance and luxury.
