Honda City Highlights

Honda City Price: Honda City prices start at Rs. 9.91 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 14.31 lakh. The prices of City diesel variants start at Rs. 11.11 lakh and the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 14.21 lakh. Honda City is available in 11 variants and 5 colours.
City Engine and Specifications: Engine options for the new Honda City include a 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. If you want fun, you pick the petrol. And, if it’s mileage you’re after, it’s the diesel that needs to be parked in your garage. The i-VTEC petrol engine is as rev happy as ever, willingly screaming up to its redline as you grin happily. But, over the years, the engine seems to have let go of its characteristic trait - the butter smooth refinement. You get to pick between a 5-speed manual and a 7-step CVT. In our road test, the manual was unsurprisingly quicker to get to 100kmph, in just 10 seconds. The automatic took nearly 12 seconds to get up to the same speed. On the efficiency front, the manual pipped the auto yet again with 13.86kmpl (city) / 19.21kmpl (Highway) as opposed to 11.22kmpl (city) / 16.55kmpl (highway). Hop into the i-DTEC diesel-equipped variants and the engine clatter is sure to put you off. This motor doesn’t feel remotely as refined as the Verna’s 1.6. You get 100PS of power and 200Nm of torque to play with. Paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the City diesel makes for a great highway car.

Honda City Variants

With the 2019 update, the base-spec S variant has been discontinued. First on the list then is the SV that packs in all the essentials, including a 2DIN music system paired with four speakers, steering-mounted audio controls, automatic climate control, cruise control and alloy wheels. The only real misses are a parking camera, ORVM-mounted turn indicators, front fog lamps and adjustable rear-seat headrests.

Move up to the V variant and you get a 7-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, push-button start, keyless entry, power-folding mirrors and a reverse camera. Dial in the fact that it's also the base-spec CVT and it seems like rather well-equipped, especially at its price point. The penultimate VX variant adds some finesse to the package with an auto-dimming rear view mirror, telescopic adjust for the steering wheel, LED tail lamps, a sunroof and bigger 16-inch alloy wheels.

Finally, there’s the ZX variant that primarily gives you the safety net of side and curtain airbags. Additionally, it gets full-LED headlamps, LED foglamps and a sporty-looking trunk lid spoiler.

City Exterior and Interior

Despite its age, the Honda City is among the best looking cars in its segment. The low-slung arrow-like design has been made a touch more aggressive with the update that was launched in 2017. With the top-end variant, Honda hasn’t spared any chance of installing LEDs - you’ll find them everywhere. The headlamps, fog lamps, taillamps and even the number plate lights are LED units. ZX and VX variants get a delicious-looking set of 16-inch alloy wheels, while the SV gets a machine-finished set of 15-inch alloys.

Honda’s sedan is unbelievably spacious. If that ranks high on your priority list, you may proceed to the dealership right away. What backs this spacious cabin up, is the generous feature list. There’s an 8-speaker sound system, automatic climate control (with a touchscreen-like interface), leather upholstery as well as cruise control. You also get a touchscreen infotainment system, but we’ve got to say, we aren’t huge fans of it. What we’re also not particularly fond of, is the interior quality. Yes, Honda once set benchmarks here. But, with the current iteration, it’s seemingly lost that robust feeling that the older Citys had. As far as safety is concerned, the City now gets reverse parking sensors as standard equipment. All other variants, save for the top-spec ZX get dual airbags and ABS as standard. In the top model, you get side and curtain airbags additionally.

Honda City Competitors

Hyundai Verna : : Looks suave, is loaded with features you didn’t know of, and most importantly - doesn’t ride like it’s got pogo sticks for wheels. If you can make peace with the limited room at the rear, it’s the best Verna ever!

Toyota Yaris : : The Yaris isn’t a mass-pleaser. It will appeal to those who appreciate nuances like a sure-footed ride, and low NVH over gimmicks such as LED headlamps and sunroofs. If you needed a petrol sedan that will outlast you, your search ends here.

Volkswagen Vento : : It’s aging, but it’s far from being dated. If you’re keen on driving (fast) yourself, the dual-clutch transmission on the Vento will be a more-than-willing partner in crime. It’s got a stiff ride, but the basics of space, practicality and ergonomics have been nailed to the T.

Maruti Ciaz : : There’s nothing that makes you go ‘wow’, but it doesn’t make you whine either. Yes, it’s a bit boring to drive and it could do with some more features. But if you need a no-nonsense car to be chauffeured around in without burning a hole in your pocket, the Ciaz should be in your garage.

Skoda Rapid : : There’s not much to dislike about the Skoda sedan. With the facelift, it looks as premium as ever, and packs in more tech. If you feel the Vento is a bit out of reach, pick the Rapid. It’s practically the same package delivered with a smaller pinch to the wallet. Yes, it’s a tad bit old and could do with some more features, but that build quality does make up for a lot!


Honda’s City continues to be as desirable as ever thanks to that oh-so-illustrious ‘H’ badge on the nose. Yes, we expected a little more polish in terms of build quality. But there’s practically nothing else that’s a big deal breaker in our books.

Honda City Latest Updates

Honda City is one of the most popular nameplates from the Japanese carmaker. Honda recently made the City its first car in India to get updated to BS6. Its 1.5-litre petrol engine is now compliant with BS6 norms, though the diesel has not been updated yet. Prices for the sedan start from Rs 9.91 lakh. It is more expensive by Rs 9,000 to 16,000 depending on the variant. The diesel engine will demand a premium of Rs 5,000 once it has been updated. Starting December 2019, Honda is offering an Anytime warranty which can cover the car for up to 10 years and 1.2 lakh km.

Editor's View of Honda City

  • Upside

    Space, well-equipped base variant, smooth CVT automatic, fun-to-drive petrol engine

  • Downside

    Noisy diesel engine, average interior quality, below par touchscreen, top variants are woefully expensive

  • Our Verdict

    Honda hasn’t drastically changed the City’s formula. But it does feel more in-tune with the times now. It looks better than ever before and retains its core strength of acres of space and a smooth, fun-to-drive petrol engine. Be prepared to loosen the purse strings, though.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying City

Q. Is the car good for long run - City?
  • Absolutely good, better and best. Recently, I drove my car from Delhi to Visakhapatnam. Though my car is 2005 model, there were no issues at all and it was silky smooth at 80000 KM on the odo. At one point, it returned 22 KM per litre. I thought I might have wrongly calculated or there must be some difference in filling of petrol used for calculation of average consumption. But, throughout the trip it has constantly returned not less than 18. : By Madhusudhanababu | 7 months ago
  • It's a very comfortable car. I'll call it super car. the only issue I have is it's low ground clearance. mileage on highways I get is 20 - 22 which I feel is too good. I believe new cars have better ground clearance. : By LAKHVINDER | 9 months ago

Q. I bought Honda city 2012 model 80000km running in 4 lac. Is it best deal in this price? And also please suggest that after running 80000 km what parameter is majorly check for servicing?
  • You spent at least 1 lakh extra. It must have been between 2.5-3 lakhs. You get it serviced now and it must be good to go. Honda vehicles, if maintained well, can run good all it's life. Well maintained vehicles of all companies run 1 lakh easily. Honda takes more services and has better engine. Don't worry. Read well before buying. You can see my videos on YouTube. : By Gopendra | 21 hours ago
  • Not a Great Deal but Good enough if the car is well maintained and single hand driven. I would suggest if you can visit to a Honda Service Centre for Complete Service Details and Service intervals. Post 80,000 kms you need to do minor checks it post 1 Lakh kms you need a full inspection of Honda Engines for their famous Hair line c***k on the Engine Head. : By Walter | 2 weeks ago
  • It may not be a great deal but ok. As the odo is 80k it would have been a good deal for 3.5 lacs. You should take care of suspension, radiator health other than engine in my view : By Madhusudhanababu | 11 months ago

    I have chose Honda VX Cvt after reviewing, testing almost all the cars available in the sub 20 lakhs. Cost of ownership - LOW comparing other cars which will make you 1.5 mill poor.Mileage - Receiving mileage of apprx. 15 kmpl on highways, 10 on city conditions (AC ON - Always)Comfort - Most comfortable sedan in the class or May be a class higher.performance - Yes, there is rubber band effect which is common for CVT but you can overcome it by using the paddle shift in Sports mode. The paddle shift will work on the normal drive mode for quick overtakes, I prefer downshifting on paddle shifts for tight situations/ either for engine breaking or Quick overtakes.ECO Mode - Will reduce the performance of the vehicle so I only use it while on highway cruises with Cruise control.Over all Experience - Excellent.

    honda city need no review as it is so good. Being Honda car, its maintenance is little costly however it has really good engine and comfort. good interiors with good music system. car has required power and stability on road. in short, except maintenance, there is nothing to complain about. Be wary of the authorized service centre as they cheat and advice many more things which may not be required. read your manual about service requirements. the service cycle is 3 months or 5000 kms and you can get it serviced in 6 months if conditions suit you. however take care and go by manual of the car. go for minor service in 3 months and bigger service in six months. so you will be able to save some amount.

    There was car malfunction and the car had to be sent to workshop in the first year of purchase on 02.11.2019. I have been told that rodent had cut wires and the same was not covered under warranty. If a rodent can enter the car engine and disable the car, it is a case of serious defective design and therefore very unsafe vehicle to drive. I have driven vehicles of various brands in Chandigarh in last forty years and this kind of problem has never occurred with cars of other brands. Its gear shifting is also not smooth at all.
