Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

Honda City

  • Larger both in length and width
  • comfortable ride
  • better interiors
  • more leg room in the back seats and a great feature set. And if you still like the old one
  • it's still on sale as the 4th Generation Honda City!

MG Hector

  • New features like the ventilated seats
  • wireless charging and auto dimming IRVM all add value for a small increase in price. New interiors brighten up the spacious cabin. Hinglish commands are useful and system's voice recognition is very accurate.

Honda City

  • Smaller front seats
  • head room in the front
  • misses out on premium features like cooled seats and wireless charging. It's still one of the more pricey sedans in the segment.

MG Hector

  • Visual changes will be hard to spot. Prices have increased.

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. What is the main difference between Honda City V and VX petrol-manual? Which one is better value for money?
  • V is better asper me cause if you have the money for VX i would say better go for the ZX cause its just 80k more , major difference is sunroof, 16 inch wheels and airbags, the sunroof is not a very useful feature to pay 1.5laks, wheel you can het it change later that a 50k business if you sell the old rims. air bags is one thing ig is essential, thats y better extend budget and buy the ZX.
  • Both variants offer very good value for money. The base V variant itself is a complete car but the price premium of around Rs 1.40 lakh commanded by the VX variant is worth it as it adds more airbags, bigger alloy wheels, a sunroof and more. If you can stretch your budget for the VX, we would highly recommend it.
Q. How is the build quality of the new Honda city and is mileage better than previous Honda cars at this price?
  • In my View,build quality, compromised a bit and mileage hv increased by 10-15% in new Models after 2019, with increased Ground clearance pls.
  • The new City feels solid when it comes to build quality. The fuel efficiency has gone up compared to the fourth-generation City.
Q. Why should I choose Honda City and not Nissan Kicks. Both are priced the same (Kicks 1.3 Turbo & City 1.5 petrol). Nissan has more ground clearance and more width. City only has more airbags and speakers?
  • You should choose what suits your needs best. With the City, you also buy into Honda network of sales and service. That is much wider than Nissan network. Also, the 1.5-litre petrol is an upgraded version of an engine that is proven to be reliable.
  • Yes, it is ... Actually I am using Brio 2014 model and as my maximum journey alonghigh way and rural area thats why I am looking for a car with high groung clearance and sitting position. Otherwise Honda is excellent.
