Editor's View of Honda City 4th Generation

  • 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 didn't drastically change the City’s formula. It looks better than it's predecessor and retains its core strength with acres of space and a smooth, fun-to-drive petrol engine.

City 4th Generation Detailed Review

The Honda City has always been Honda’s bestseller in the Indian car market. This C-segment sedan has garnered an almost cult-like following since its introduction here in India in 1998 and has always been known for setting segment benchmarks. Currently in its fourth generation, the Honda City has received a much needed upgrade but is it enough to retain its under-threat segment leader status?

All LED lights on ZX variant only

What has changed?

Quite a bit actually, but let’s start with the exteriors. Aesthetically, the City still looks similar to the pre-facelift model, albeit with a sleeker front end. The arrow-shot design theme is retained. The front grille now features a slimmer chrome grille with a honeycomb mesh in the background.

The Honda City now features an all-LED lighting system. The headlamps are all LED, so are the DRLs and tail lamps. In addition, the all-LED treatment is reserved for the top-of-the-line ZX variants only although, the VX does get LED headlamps and fog lamps. Even the fog lamps and all interior lights including the front and rear reading lamps, and the rear number plate illumination are all powered by LED technology.

It also gets new diamond-cut alloy wheels which have been upsized to 16inches, though, these are also available on the ZX variants only as the lower models make do with 15-inch wheels. Ironically though, unlike most cars, the facelift looks most distinctive from the rear. The all-LED tail lamps feature a clear distinction between the red and clear section. It also gets a new spoiler with integrated brake lamp and honeycomb inserts in the redesigned rear bumper as well.

The seats are comfortable plastic quality could have been better

And what’s the story on the inside?

Well, inside, Honda has decided to stick with its tried and tested, all-plastic beige-black layout and the cabin will be familiar to previous City owners. Notable changes though include a telescopic- and tilt-adjustable steering which was missing before and should be a boon for taller drivers. Also new is the auto-dimming rear-view mirror which is also frameless and a single touch-operated sunroof has also been added. These features too are available on the higher variants only. The rest, though, is pretty similar. You still get the touch-operated controls of the automatic climate control and the instrument cluster too is pretty similar, albeit with a small update: it now features a white backlight compared to the cool blue lighting in the older car. The start/stop button is also backlit.

rear is adequate to seat three

Lastly, Honda has also equipped the City with automatic headlamps and rain-sensing wipers to keep up with the competition. The space inside is ample and the rear can still seat three people in comfort. The kneeroom is adequate and you now also get height-adjustable rear headrests. But anyone over six feet will feel the headroom constraint. Also, the middle ‘seat’ can prove to be uncomfortable on long hauls. Though the cabin of the facelift is quintessentially City and looks as classy as before, the quality of plastics used could have been better. The plastics on the dash and door panels feel rather crude especially when compared to its chief rivals, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna. Both cars make use of hard plastic panels but yet make them feel premium. Though Honda claims the panel above the glove box to be of soft-touch material but it doesn’t feel as premium as it promises.

The Digipad system is the party piece of the interior

So is that it then?

Oh no, we haven’t even gotten to the party piece yet, which is the new 7.0inch infotainment system called Digipad. This new infotainment system has been developed in-house by Honda’s R&D and is based on the Android platform and is quite user-friendly. The new system features Mirror Link technology along with WiFi connectivity. Although, your phone needs to support Mirror Link, if you want to connect your Android phone to the Digipad. In addition, it can only run apps specific to Mirror Link, which tends to limit the system’s functionality. In addition, the WiFi can only be accessed by a USB dongle which needs to be bought separately. Also, it uses the data from your phone to enable you to access the browser on the system. You do however get two USB ports so the Mirror Link and WiFi can be connected simultaneously.

The cabin is spacious and well laid out

The Digipad also features a seamless navigation system which is powered by MapMyIndia. The system uses SD card-based maps for navigation and you can also receive live traffic updates if you’re connected to WiFi. You also get an additional SD card slot for playing media, 1.5GB of added internal memory, and even an HDMI port to stream videos from your phone to the screen. Our only gripes with the system however are that it looks like an aftermarket fitment and it doesn’t come with either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The former feature already exists on the Ciaz whereas both will soon feature on the Verna.

Honda City rear looks rather good

Does it drive any different?

No, not really. The powertrains are identical as before. The petrol is the same 1.5-litre iVTEC (119PS/145Nm) as before and the diesel, the one you see here, is the same 1.5-litre iDTEC engine that still develops 100PS of max power and 200Nm of peak torque. The motor still feels torquey and taking off even in second gear is rarely an issue thanks to the strong low-end grunt. There is ample twist on tap even before the turbo kicks in and, while the car’s usable rev range is narrow, the delivery is linear and smooth.

The petrol is available with a choice of a 5-speed manual and a CVT. So, if you are looking for Japanese reliability, a super refined engine and convenience features to boot, we suggest you go for the ZX petrol CVT. The diesel comes equipped with a 6-speed manual only. The throw is short and the gearbox is precise but you do sometimes confuse third for fifth and vice-versa as the gates are quite narrow and close together.

It rides well but NVH not up to the mark

Honda claims it has reworked the NVH package but the results seem marginal at best. The engine still feels harsh and there is a fair amount of engine clatter that seeps into the cabin right from start-up, and the vibrations too can be felt in the pedals and the steering wheel. Plus, the wheel wells are devoid of cladding as well, which lets in a fair bit of road noise into the cabin as well. The ride, too, is a tad stiff and even though you don’t feel the undulations as much, you certainly do hear them.

The City comes with dual front airbags as standard

They must have improved the safety right?

Yes, safety has been upgraded and is one of the key points of the new Honda City. The entire lineup now gets ABS, EBD and dual front airbags as standard. Rear ISOFIX child seat mounts are also standard across the range. The top of the line ZX variants now also feature side and curtain airbags, which brings the total tally to six which is now on par with the rivals.

Honda City 2017, LED tail lamps only on ZX variant

So is it worth it then?

Well, that is a question that has become quite tricky to answer. Where the City was known to set benchmarks in its segment, it is clear that it is now attempting to catch up with the competition. Yes, the updates are considerable but they haven’t radically changed the package, something the City really needs. Most of the features it is getting now are already present on its rivals, and even on some cars in the segment below. Plus, the Ciaz is due for an update and an all new Verna is being readied too but, the new-gen City will not be making an appearance before 2019. So, the City does share an equal footing with its rivals with the new facelift but that positioning might be short lived.

    Aug2, 2019I had purchased a Honda city/Grace in India Nov 2018. Now the car has been completed 17500 KMS.It’s happened last night while driving. I was on red light after a trip of approx. 100 kms in the same date. I stopped the engine on red light for save the fuel. The red light changed into green and I pushed the start button with clutch, however the car wasn’t start. The battery was giving the power and the motor was rotating but the engine wasn’t start. I tried it several time, but the engine didn’t start.The cops were come to me and help me to bring the car on a service lane. Then I called to service center of Honda locally. He replied, now the time is 7:30 PM (IST - India) and the service center has been closed, however you can bring your car at service center and will help you in morning, I said its ok. I asked again him, what should I do in this situation? He said please call a local mechanic, he may check the normal faults. There may be some fusing or some other small problem. During searching of local mechanic, I tried to lock the car by automatic key, but the sensors weren’t working.Then I call a local mechanic, he check it. He told, the fuel motor isn’t injecting the fuel into the engine. He requested me please put some fuel, may be the fuel tank is showing the fuel, and didn’t have.I put the fuel of Rs 500/- in Indian rupees approx. 6-7 letter petrol. But the problem was the same. Then he told there is major problem, please call to service center or I can also fix it but I take it to my service center. I refused it and give him his service fee.Then I was waiting the Crane, It will tow the car to Honda service center.After an hour, While waiting I pressed the key lock button, but the car wasn’t locking. However I was still trying the Key and pressing the button, after 5-6 try suddenly the sensors start working, I thought may be the car start. Then I sit on driving seat and press the button with clutch. The Car started, then I drove it and brought to home.it was too shameful for me, i had invested that much amount and a new car stopped on road.The problem was in fuel inject motor. this is a associated problem in all honda city car (new or old) and also in AMAZE too (confirmed by service dealer)

    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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying City 4th Generation

Q. Honda city 4th generation SV model vs Tata Nexon xm(s). Which is best?
  • Both the cars are good in their own forte and are from different segment. Honda City 4th generation is still the same comfortable, reliable, spacious and easy to own car as before. Honda has almost perfected the City’s positioning as a great all-rounder. The City’s interior space and build quality is good. In fact, it is comparable with even some D-segment sedans. On the other hand, the Nexon does have a couple of aces up its sleeve. The ride quality, though slightly stiffer than before, can still match up with the best in the segment. Its sure-footed mannerisms mean that it makes you feel safe and its biggest ace is the rear seat experience, which can easily be termed amongst the best in the segment. It looks better, feels more premium on the inside and now has a feature list to walk shoulder to shoulder with much of the competition. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive.

Q. Hi I am planning to buy a petrol sedan and i have shortlisted Skoda rapid and Honda city. can you suggest which one is better in terms of service cost, mileage,& comfort.
  • See driving pleasure...nothing can beat VW/Skoda...but it is low on space, ineffective A/C, and wallet shattering shattering maintenance costs. Honda city on other hand is generous in space, very good a/c very affordable maintenance and it is also very powerful to drive . If driving pleasure is your only concern go for skoda, otherwise Honda city....I will advise you to go and check both the cars in person and then decide.
  • Depends on the need you have as a buyer, if your prototype is only driving thrill then definitely you need a turbo petrol, forever a Naturally appeared petrol of City is more happy to revv. In terms of back seat comfort and bout space City beats Rapid all time. Interior is more upmarket in City, and also maintenance cost is very less in city too.
  • I agree with you But for prospective buyers i hv some things to tell. 1 the spare wheel isnt actually a spare wheel in RAPID as it us one size smaller. 2 engine gets too hot too soon. 3 hind window glasses open half only 4 when you want to decrease speed you HAVE to apply breaks. Even when you deccelerate it keeps going at high speef
