Smart car with smooth engine but lower ground clearance

I have purchased a pre-owned Silver color honda city. Its a great car. The driving pleasure is amazing.I was initially very skeptical in buying a pre-owned car. But after a lot of deliberation I decided to go for Honda.I was aware that honda's engine lasts long and it seems to be true.Looks are great, Seats looks amazing when its a leather seat.Space: Great space at the rear, boot space is good. If you like to go for long drive and want to take a lot of stuff with you, its has for the right boot space for you. You rear leg room is enough to accommodate any one with 6 ft height. Even if you push the front seat to complete behind you will not have any leg space issue.Dashboard: It looks a bit ugly at first but you get use to seeing it. I have the S variant and the music system has a few hidden connectors. The USB and the aux port very well hides behind the controls so you dont see the clutter wires for aux and USB drive. I have purchased a bluetooth dongle and it hides well inside the system. The function on steering is smooth. Channel change and volume control has a nice separator so that you don't look at the steering while changing the volume or channel.Car is a bit Smart: You will never face problems like you have left the lights on for this car as when you open driver's door, it warns you that lights are on. I have noticed that when you start the car it will raise itself if the temperature is low and will automatically raise down when it reached the certain threshold (i.e. when the blue temperature sign turns off).Engine: I am no mechanic but engine pick up is good and the uphill pickup on 3rd gear is good. I frequently travel on expressways (mumbai-pune) and have not found any problem in ascent of lonavala ghat. On expressways it is smooth and stable. you will have to look at your speedometer to realize ohh you have reached 130kmph; time to slow down. I have attained a max speed of 150kmph on expressway without any vibration issue. Car is very stable and sturdy.Ground clearance: the biggest drawback of this car is ground clearance. Considering indian speed breakers it is bound to hit the lower part of chaise and you might damage it if you are really at high speed on speed breakers. Trick here is to go as slow as possible on speed breakers and the situation is worse if you have 5 persons inside the car. So if you buying a pre-owned car then make sure you look at the lower part of chaise before buying. There is a workaround to add additional suspension caps but I haven't tried it. If you have driven an SUV before then in this car you will feel that you are almost sitting on road and driving the car. Overall this is a good car to drive around and worth the cost.

Yes. Ground clearance is the major draw back of this amazing car. because of this only customers especially from small towns are stepping back to buy.

Yes, very true, ground clearance is too poor. Hope Honda has worked out in its 2017 model.
