The King Of Its Clan
It’s since the 90’s that the City is ruling our roads. From its 1st generation, it has been more comfortable in driving than the Suzuki or Hyundai out there, and it continues to dominate its segment after almost 2 decades of its launch in India. The all new 4th generation Honda City is just the perfect successor of its previous generations.
Starting with the all-new 1.5L (1497cc) engine that churns 119 PS of power & 145 nm of torque, which is adequate to cruise at high speeds on a highway or just moving along the busy roads of Metro Cities. It also gets a new 1.5L diesel engine with a mileage of 25 kmpl (claimed) which is greater than the petrol’s 17.8. You also have an option of a CVT gearbox (Continuously Variable Transmission) which is in the Automatic Transmission variant (SV, V, VX, VX (o)).
The top model that is the VX (o) is packed with a lot of goodies. You get an electric sunroof, cruise control, ABS with EBD, 6.2’’ touch-screen infotainment system with navigation just as a start. Let’s talk about the interior. The VX (o) gets an option of either a black/beige interior. The dash gets premium plastic and looks perfect with the big touch screen system. The car also gets touch screen AC panel which is standard in all the variants. The seats are very comfy and wrapped in premium leather. The car gets a height-adjustable driver’s seat and telescopic steering wheel. It also gets electrically adjustable ORVMs. The rear gets an AC vent and armrest with bottle holder. The rear seats are the most comfortable of its class. Legroom is good and headroom is enough for an average person. The car gets 15-inch alloy wheels and a ground clearance of 165 mm. The shark type design of the City is very attractive and makes it look different from the others.
The ride of the City is very good. The steering wheel gives good feedback at corners & at high speeds. The engine is very smooth and does not hesitate when you push it to its limits. The cabin is well insulated until you reach 140 Kmph. The boot space is quite good at 510 litres. It gets a smart key which enables keyless entry and a push start button to begin the joy ride with. Honda has not compromised on safety as always. The City gets ABS, EBD dual SRS airbags and an ACE body structure which keeps the cabin safe during impact from any side.
Overall the car is quite good and deserves to be the King of its clan. The Ciaz may be an option for people who want a big car at a small price tag but it’s not as good as the HONDA CITY. Priced at 12.92 lakhs (ex-showroom Mumbai) the HONDA CITY VX (0) is a value for money car.
Pros:- Ride quality, features, interior, after sales service.
Cons:- puny tires, price, colour options.
