Pros : Head-turning looks, superb acceleration

Cons : Nothing that I can remember as of now


Look and Style: It has been years that Honda City has been ruling the sedan segment in India according to me. In terms of looks, there is no competition for the car as the looks of Honda City are simply superb and class apart. The elegant curves that the car has been gifted with makes it a desirable beauty. I feel this is the only car that manages to look good in all the colors it is available in. The car has not only good exteriors but is also blessed with posh and stylish interiors. I love the headlights, the dashboard and the boot curves of the car to be spec

Comfort: Be it a long drive with your companion or a long journey on a highway with your complete family, the car offers great comfort both in terms of driving and seating. The gear shift and the power steering are so smooth that they make the drive extremely comfortable and a pleasurable experience. I have made trips to Goa and Mahabaleshwar a couple of times in my City and trust me none of my family members and neither me ever felt any kind of strain or exertion. The car offers superb comfort and ease.

Pickup: It has been 3 years now since I got my Honda City and the pick up has been as good over the years as it was when I first got it 3 years back. The moment one sits inside the car, it glides to whatever speed we wish to take it to in seconds without one even realizing the effort that goes into it. The acceleration is really nice and I perhaps cannot really describe it in words, a it can be better felt by the ones who have taken the plunge and driven the car.

Mileage: I feel that my Honda City gives a mileage that is best in the class which is around 16 kmpl in city areas and approximately 18kmpl on highways. The car is really fuel efficient and with proper care and maintenance, there is nothing to complain that I could figure out in 3 years of my ownership. Best

Features: Well, that is perhaps a tough pick area as everything about the car is good. But yes, if I have to pick some of the best features in Honda City, it would be the stylish looks, super cool performance, the acceleration and pick. I have to mention here that the killer looks of the car has always been head turner on road and has made me a proud owner. Needs to improve; In terms of performance, features and looks I really don't think anything can beat Honda City and the same has been proved time and again. However with competitors like Fiat Linea jumping in the fore front, the car maker should work towards providing more value additions to the vehicle.  Overall Experience: I read reviews over the Internet, wherein people take months and perform an extensive research to pick a car. However, it was always decided in our case that we would opt for Honda City as me and my family simply loved the car. I had a hatchback before buying this sedan and we were eagerly waiting to get Honda City. I would always cherish the moment I took this wise decision of buying this beauty which makes me proud every single time I am on the roads riding my Honda City.

    I completely agree with you on everything except the city mileage which Is about 11 to 12 in bangalore I have been owing this car from last 1 year Also I feel the car ahas a scope for improvement in ground clearance

  • anand |14 Oct,2010 10:29:23 PM

    yes ground clearence required,in delhi i get milege 10 -11 kms. they told i get 15.

  • mohan |15 Oct,2010 12:43:08 AM

    everything good,except ground clearence, in my place at Ranny now iam getting 12.7 (Automatic version)

  • Tushar |15 Oct,2010 09:28:54 AM

    Agree with everything except the mileage bit.... 16 kmpl in city driving conditions is a little exaggerated. Realistically the mileage is between 10 - 12 kmpl in the city.

  • depak |15 Oct,2010 12:29:46 PM

    Yes, the only problem with this vehcle is the ground clearence other wise the acceleration, the pick-up, the mileage about 12 (descent enough). The other important thing about the honda is the service centre. They need to come up with more service centres towards the central , north and east of bangalore.

    I have become an owner of Honda city(s) for less than a month.It is great to drive this car.I feel the difference between this & other cars available in the market today.I have test drived almost all cars of this segment before taking final decision to purchase this car.It is very comfortable whie driving and showing milage in the city (only) about 13.1 K.M./L.But it is giving some frictional sound when the speed exceeds 80 KM/hour.The service cente told me that it is too early & it will go after its first service.Overall it is one of the best and good looking car available in the market today.

    Even i own a honda city and the ground clearance was a bit of a problem specially on bumpy on roads......but then someone advised me to go for bigger tyres and that has worked for me....i exchanged the 165' tyres for the 195' ones ....it has not affected the performance one bit....the average has slightly gone down but by a very small amount....12.7 to around 12.1 but ever since the tyres changed the increased ground clearance have increased the driving pleasure .....the complete feel of the car changes..

  • divyanshu kapoor |12 Jan,2011 03:17:57 PM

    this car is superb we cant say any bad things abt it i owned dis car before one year and this car is trouble free and is giving me a milage of 15 km in city and 21 km in highway
