2017 Honda City: Which Variant Suits You?

Modified On Apr 04, 2020 03:04 PM By Raunak

With the 2017 facelifted avatar, the Honda City has significantly upped its game in terms of overall packaging!

Honda launched the facelift of the City almost three years after the introduction of the fourth-generation model in the country. Back in 2014, the all-new fourth-gen model faced a daunting task – to reclaim the throne from the Hyundai Verna. In 2017, with its midlife update, the Honda City is ready again to battle it out against the Verna. Besides the Verna, the Ciaz is also giving the City a tough fight and both the Hyundai and Maruti sedans have received their own updates since. The Toyota Yaris also offers a competitive package, but has not gained much popularity with the buyers.

So what exactly has Honda done with the 2017 City? The Japanese automaker has certainly tried to tie up the loose ends in the City’s packaging. Time to find out which of the 2017 City’s variants suits you.

Though the new range-topping ZX has the most flamboyant of the bells and whistles such as all-LED lighting and 16-inch wheels along with six-airbags, the VX, seems to be the most value-packed variant. That’s because it features new LED headlights and fog lamps and an updated infotainment system, apart from the goodies of the pre-facelift model. Also, customers looking for an economical automatic option can consider the V variant, since Honda is offering the CVT with paddle shifters from the V trim onwards. This trim has the new infotainment unit on offer as well.
