Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Honda City Hybrid

    • Seamless and effortless drive experience
    • Experience of electric drive with the convenience of a petrol car
    • Exclusive features like ADAS and Electronic Parking Brake
    • High claimed fuel efficiency of 26.5kmpl
    • Good ride and handling balance

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Honda City Hybrid

    • Should have had more visual differences from the regular City
    • Boot space has been occupied by the batteries, leaving space for just a couple of suitcases
    • Price premium won't justify the advantage in running costs
