Honda city is very high on maintenance and costs a bomb. The replaceable parts available are also expensive. Buying a car at this price is not an issue maintaining it definitely is. Service is costly and spares are highly overpriced. What all an owner is left with are low mileage and high petrol prices. Comparatively Swift wins in driving pleasure. Ground clearance is the major disadvantage with this car. You'll feel nervous above 140km/h, thanks to the skinny tyres. Interior quality is not as good as Vento. Honda again lets us down here. No auto-locking of doors on move either. Seats are fairly good, but I felt like the lower back support is not so good for the front seats. Also, the headlight is not so great, need to be a bit more careful during night driving. Suspension too is bit hard, so one would feel like Tata Indica is better on rough roads. But on high speeds, City is very stable. The braking is effective, no body rollover. ABS and EBD do their functions effectively in hard breaking situations. Music system is decent enough. There is no CD/DVD option, but iPod works just fine with the player. AC is powerful enough within minutes of time, but absence of climate control is a big negative for a 10 lakh car. Honda could've added some more features easily like in new Verna. In short, All New City is a nice car to own and drive, pain in pocket to maintain, and lacks some good features which are even present in cheaper cars.
