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

    • Spacious cabin. Rear-seat kneeroom rivals cars from a segment above.
    • Petrol motor + manual gearbox + playful chassis = FUN!
    • Brilliant tuning for the CVT automatic makes driving effortless.
    • Comfortable ride quality. Better suited for Indian roads now.

    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

    • Interior plastic quality could’ve been better.
    • Needs more ‘wow’ features: ventilated seats, powered driver’s seat, branded stereo etc.
    • No diesel automatic on offer. Cheaper Amaze offers it.
