Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    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.

    Kia Carens

    • Looks unique, in a good way.
    • Good presence with generous exterior dimensions
    • Lots of practical elements integrated into the cabin
    • Available in 6- and 7-seater configurations
    • Turbo-petrol and diesel engine options
    • Automatic transmission option with both engines

    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.

    Kia Carens

    • Missing some premium features
    • Looks more like an MPV, than an SUV
    • 16-inch wheels look small on the overall large side profile
