Pros : Looks and asthetics

Cons : Engine performance and Dynamics

Look and Style: Looks are always USP of all honda cars. The front grill has distinctive chrome which gives character to it. Flowing lines on the side. Though from the back it resembles the old Verna.

Comfort: Seat has good thigh support. Rear bench has also good legroom even for tall passengers.

Pickup: The diesel feels slightly underpowered when you compare with the new Verna or Vento. City drive is ok while overtaking on highways can create ripples due to the underpower nature of the engine. It is powered by the same mill as in the Amaze so it is little bit high on noise levels and vibrations.

Mileage: Mileage will be good as city driving in congested conditions can give anything around 13 to 15KMPL and Highway will be 18-19.5 KMPL of course without AC.

Best Features: Touch screen AC Controls. The Dashboard as AC vents in the middle which is smaller than the side ones and matches with the flowing lines of the dash. Rear A/C vents are functionally good.

Needs to improve: Quality of seat fabric, Rear AC vent plastics are not as good as front ones. Door panels joints, bonnet joints and paint drops are visible. Overall Experience: Overall a good car looks if taken into account. But for drivers required die hard engine performance and power go for the new Verna Diesel, Vento or Skoda Rapid.

    You asked a very perfect question. It seems that the writer of this review is talking about the older version of City.

    Hi Bilash, I understand that you have shared the review for the Diesel variant. Correct me if I am wrong please. Would it be possible for you to share your review/comments for the Petrol Version. I was thinking about the City i-vtec SV. Would be nice in case you may advise me for a good Car in the same range.

    I have just booked all new Honda City-i-DTECH - V MT... at Crystal Honda Pune... and as above said- I echo with them...on following pint...the plastic quality of rear AC vent is not up to the mark. The cost which we are paying...and the quality of seat fabric used is really not up to the mark. During test ride - vechile is very good.

    I have already booked VX diesel model. Now, the D day is nearing faster. Are there any discrepancies and short falls in this version of honda city as against promised by the manufacturer (like vibrational problems in typical diesel versions, mileage etc.) I need feedback from from those who are actually using the same version.
