Overview

Overview The new Honda City is the best selling C-segment car in the Country. Launched in the beginning of 2014, it was the first time the City was offered with a diesel engine – the ubiquitous 1.5-litre i-DTEC mill powering all Honda diesel cars. That made the City an instant succes s dethroning the Hyundai Verna from the top of the C-segment. The Maruti Ciaz also competes in this space but is not as popular as the City. Prices for the new Honda City range from Rs.7.53 to 11.84 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi)

The City’s design is more of an evolution from its predecessor. But appealing to a new set of audiences including a lot of diesel car buyers meant that the City needed to look expensive. Hence comes the large chrome slab on the grille and boot and wider headlamps and taillamps. The bumper is a lot more aggressive too as are the prominent bonnet creases. Similar creases run across the profile of the car culminating into the rear taillamps. The wheels and tyre profiles are a size smaller than you see on cars in this segment and the alloy wheel design isn’t that appealing. The inside of the City is quite impressive. Levels of equipment and a shiny dashboard with plenty of touch sensitive controls including air conditioning and a multimedia system make it look high tech. The instrument cluster is nicely detailed and gets its own digital readout as well. The seats are supremely comfortable and amount of space in the cabin is one of the best in this segment. Top that up with a sunroof and you get a very luxurious cabin that can rival cars a segment above. The City comes with a choice of two engine specifications- one petrol and one diesel. The diesel engine is the 1.5-litre i-DTEC mill developing 100PS of power and 200Nm of torque. It isn’t the strongest of engines in the segment and has a very small power band but returns impressive mileage figures. ARAI tested mileage of 26kmpl is an impressive number, courtesy a six speed gearbox with ratios chosen solely to provide excellent efficiency. The petrol mill offers good performance from the 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine, developing 120PS of power and 145Nm of torque. It loves to rev and comes mated with a slick 5-speed manual gearbox. The City petrol also comes with a CVT which is marginally more efficient than the manual City.
