Pros : Features, reliability, pedigree, hassle-free after sales, market goodwill, novelty fact
Cons : Refinement level if going for the diesel, aftermarket like AVN unit, light build
A friend of mine with which I do carpool to the office, owns the current gen Honda City petrol. The car which people think defines your status when your salary reaches a certain level. In terms of design, there is no doubt the car looks elegant and classy and also sits much low than the Civic (which I like, sadly discontinued).
The interiors are also one of the best in the segment to go for and live with. Moreover, the top-end model comes with stuff like sunroof, paddle shifters (with CVT auto), feather touch AC controls and others.
All these things are enough for one to get swayed and eventually bring it home. However, Honda has really cut few corners in it. To begin with, the car has really skinny tyres, I mean how can someone in their right put 175 cross-section tyres in a car which puts out 120 horses! Honda has probably done this for efficiency. Please upsize if you wanna enjoy this car.
Secondly, the AVN unit (audio-video touchscreen) strictly looks aftermarket and does not suit to a car which costs close to Rs. 12 lakh. Moreover, it is a resistive touchscreen one instead of a capacitive which you use in your phones. Honda should have offered the one which comes in the Jazz in the States. All in all, the car has a few major cons like I mentioned above along with lighter build quality which I didn't expected from Honda.
