Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Does the Honda City have good mid-range torque compared to the Skoda Rapid, mainly for overtaking vehicles ahead? If I choose the Rapid, will it be difficult to get moving from a standstill on very inclined hill roads considering manual transmission variants?
  • Hey, we need to carry out a comparison review of both cars to get you a detailed answer for this. But the Honda City could fare better on paper because it has better low-end torque. The Rapid, on the other hand, has turbo lag which might make driving a bit tricky.
Q. Is Honda City petrol 1.5 naturally aspirated petrol better than the Skoda Rapid 1.0 TSI for hills with hairpin bends?
  • Thank you for quicker reply. Do honda city has good mid torque compared to rapid mainly for fast overtake of vehicle ahead? If I choose rapid will it be difficult to get move on from stand still on a very inclined hill roads considering manual transmission varients? And is tsi turbo lag give same effect as diesel vehicles struggle at low rpm at inclined road?
  • The Honda City will fare better because it has better low-end torque. The Rapid on the other hand has turbo lag which might make driving a bit tricky.
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.

  • Well honda city has a road presence.But still - the kind of plush seating space and feel good factor which you will get with honda city will stay with you on long term basis.If you seek value for money full fledged sedan in manual transmission - honda city is strong recommended buy even in 2021.
