Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 5 Series

    • Rewarding to drive
    • Supple ride
    • Solidly built
    • Feature loaded

    Honda City 4th Generation

    • The City’s interior space and build quality is good. In fact, it is comparable with even some D-segment sedans
    • At 510 litres, the City’s boot is among the most spacious in the segment. It’s also the same as the Ciaz’s.
    • The City gets a one-touch electric sunroof, which is unavailable in most cars in this segment
    • The Honda City gets six airbags in the top-spec ZX variant. Not many cars in this segment offer that
    • The petrol City is among the most fuel-efficient automatic cars in its segment.At 18kmpl, it is about 2kmpl more efficient than the Verna petrol automatic, which has a claimed efficiency of 15.92kmpl.

    BMW 5 Series

    • Rear seat experience
    • Sharp bumps can upset the suspension

    Honda City 4th Generation

    • High Price: the City is the most expensive car in its segment. The City’s top-spec ZX variant is almost Rs 1 lakh pricier than the Verna’s SX(O) variant, City’s closest rival in terms of features and performance
    • Infotainment System: the City’s 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is laggy and lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, something which is offered in every other sedan in this segment
    • NVH levels could have been better. Diesel engine’s vibrations and noise can be felt inside the cabin
    • The City is not offered with an automatic transmission with its diesel engine. However, other sedans like the Vento, Rapid and the Verna get it
    • The Honda City gets touch-based AC controls in its top-spec variant, which are not easy to use while driving as you will need to take your eyes off the road to use them
