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.

    Volkswagen Virtus

    • Classy, understated styling. Sporty GT variant on offer too
    • Feature-loaded: 8-inch digital driver’s display, 10.1-inch touchscreen, ventilated seats, electric sunroof are among the highlights
    • 521 litre boot is segment leading. 60:40 split rear seats bumps up practicality
    • Strong engine options: 1- and 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engines promise excitement

    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.

    Volkswagen Virtus

    • Lack of width and strong seat contouring means the Virtus is best used as a four seater
    • No diesel engine option. Verna and City offer a diesel
