The Honda City is back in an all-new avatar to reclaim its spot at the top of the table. Well, the price table at least...

Honda has launched the fifth-gen City in India and its price is rather competitive. It not only competes against the likes of Maruti Ciaz or Hyundai Verna but even its predecessor, the fourth-gen Honda City. Yep, Honda plans on keeping the older model on showroom floors for the foreseeable future. So let’s take a look at how the 2020 City’s prices compare against that of its rivals.

The new Honda City can be had with either a petrol or a diesel engine.

  • Compared to the fourth-gen Honda City, the new City commands a premium ranging between Rs 15,000 and Rs 45,000.

  • The Skoda Rapid’s Rider variant is the least expensive base variant among all the models.

  • In fact, the Rapid’s second variant from the bottom comes next. These two variants of the Rapid have replaced the Ciaz at the bottom of the table.

  • The Toyota Yaris also finds an honourable mention here for being the most affordable automatic offering of the lot. Its J CVT Optional variant is Rs 41,000 cheaper than the nearest automatic, that is the Ciaz Delta AT. 

  • When it comes to top-spec manuals, the Ciaz is the most economical offering, topping out at slightly more than Rs 10 lakh. The Skoda Rapid’s Monte Carlo Edition comes in second in the category, costing slightly under Rs 12 lakh.

  • The Rapid is also the least expensive turbo-petrol offering on the list. The Verna, with its single turbo variant, is the highest priced turbo-petrol variant (it also packs in a DCT).

  • The Rapid and Vento will be offered with automatic transmissions in the near future.

  • If we consider only naturally aspirated engines, the new City has the most expensive top variant.

  • The new City is the most expensive manual transmission offering in the segment.

  • The new City is also first in line when it comes to having the most expensive automatic variant amongst its peers.


2020 Honda City

Hyundai Verna


S Plus - Rs 10.65 lakh

V - Rs 12.40 lakh

SX - Rs 12.05 lakh


SX AT - Rs 13.20 lakh

VX - Rs 13.76 lakh

SX Opt - Rs 13.94 lakh

ZX - Rs 14.65 lakh

SX Opt AT - Rs 15.09 lakh

  • There is not a lot of competition when it comes to diesel offerings. You can only pick between the fifth-gen Honda City and the Hyundai Verna.

  • The Verna has the least expensive base variant and the least expensive top variant when it comes to manual transmissions. That makes the City the car which has the most expensive base variant and the most expensive top variant.

  • As far as automatics are concerned, you only have the option of Hyundai Verna in this segment, which means there is no competition.

This comparison of price is by no means a clear indicator of which is the better car. We can only answer that question definitively by conducting a road test. However, if the price of a car is one of the most important factors for you when buying a new car, the above given comparisons will definitely help you in getting a clear picture of the compact sedan segment.
