Look and Style: The interiors have started showing its age. They need to come up with a Touch Screen user interface with GPS & Climate Control AC. 

Needs to improve: The HONDA always lags behind in picking opportunities. The way they Launched the new City in the Thai market, same they could have done in Indian Market. They could have launched it during the festive season which would have boosted their sale figure. Volkswagen played their right move & launched the Vento. Honda people, they underestimate the Indian Market & its potential. They should learn some lessons from the German giant Volkswagen, that how to boost sales & how to fulfil customers requirement. Hats off Volkswagen, you all are really doing the best job. I myself bought the city and I am not happy. If I would have owned a Vento and felt the top of the sky.

    Hey Guys I suppose u all have not understood what i meant. Very first let me tell U dat i have bought the CITY i-vtec, Exclusive Model. The City is better than the Vento but the way VOLKSWAGEN has updated the Interiors of their car, same can be done by Honda. Honda launched the updated model of City in Thailand in September but in India they launched it now. Every car that is launched in Asia, the Thai market gets it first & then the Indian Market recieves, it can happen the other way also. I hope U all have understood...... Its about taking the advantage of the festive season & boosting the sale....

    Hi All, I Think honda ivetech coorprate model launch just becoz in the same segment Vento,verna have same price range that is 6.99 , butinternal feature wise Coorprate is not good

  • subhadeep |09 Mar,2012 12:36:04 PM

    hi dude , i think any sedan like Verna Fluidic, fiesta,Vento can beat the king city .it also have many brilliant features like G-con force which gives a smooth journey so i am going to pick the new city.

  • sachin |21 Mar,2012 05:40:39 PM

    City is nowhere close to vento in terms of gear box, ride and built quality. vento is the best in segment. it may not have cosmetic looks like city / fludic / fiesta but vento is strong in engine quality / built and drive quality without second thought.

    Vikas |28 Mar,2012 07:09:26 PM

    Sachin i suppose u didnt understood wat i said...... Its d marketing strategy m talkin abt...... Please m not talking abt looks or technical aspect. Please dont comment if u dont understand wat is being written....

    V |18 Apr,2012 12:52:54 AM

    ok by the way why r u talking about marketing, people want to know the pros and cons of city coz u have one, what r u MBA in HR. And sachin do u even know about both vento and hond? Honda has the best ride and suspension quality, hyundai and vento may come close but only second. honda has lot of features than vento, vento doesnt even ahve steering mounted controls even in its top model. honda also has almost all the safety features which others may lack. I cannot go into many details but plz research all the aspects of any car u speak about becoz people depend on these reviews.

    Vikas |18 Apr,2012 01:31:18 AM

    So Mr. V people have told U that they are relying on my comment, is it that way???? I suppose U don't understand what role Marketing plays. And for your kind information please check the sales figure of Honda CITY after the launch of VENTO. And also I have every right to comment on whatever I feel. I do not need a degree to put up my VIEW. And for ur information if I'm talking about Marketing than I may be an MBA in MARKETING rather in HR. I hope U understand the difference between an MBA in Marketing & MBA in HR. LOllzzz..... Please don't make fuss of YOURSELF by commenting on any SILLY TOPIC that is irrelevant.

    Anil |05 Dec,2012 01:22:49 PM

    Vikas is right....I agree with him that Marketing wise VW is better than Honda, VW has come up with Innovation in own financian like No Interest etc... It is no brainer that Honda is better than VW but they are not going to the people....

    Vikas |16 Dec,2012 12:45:07 AM

    Thnk U anil U r d 1st guy who understood the review correctly n rplied....

  • charles |17 Feb,2017 09:01:03 PM

    hey sachin City is nowhere close to vento i completely disagree with that although the diesel city lacks the grunt of vento the petrol version outperforms its competitors in the segment.Talking about build quality its a cheap german product and only higher up the price range u get that tank like build. Dont teach honda about their engines and performance honda civic rs takes the shit out of golf gti in the international market.Dont forget the acura nsx if u are talking about the engine.
