In fact, such is its success, the carmaker has stated that you may need to wait up to 10 months to get your hands on one!  


The Honda City Hybrid makes up almost up to 10 percent of the overall City sales in India.

Another USP of the City hybrid is the fact that it’s the only model in its segment to feature ADAS which consists of lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, auto high beam assist, lane departure warning and collision avoidance braking system. Rest of the features are similar to what you get in the top-spec City ZX.  


The City Hybrid pairs a 98PS 1.5-litre petrol engine with a 109PS electric motor for a combined output of 126PS. Most of the time, the drive is predominantly in EV mode in town, but while giving it the beans, both the engine and electric motor come alive for maximum performance. In terms of fuel efficiency, we have managed to eke out 20.15kmpl in town and 23.38kmpl on the highway.  


The Honda City Hybrid doesn’t have any direct rivals in India, and its only similarly priced hybrid alternatives are the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara and Toyota Hyryder. Moreover those looking for a similarly priced compact sedan could check out the sportier 1.5-litre TSI variants of the Skoda Slavia and VW Virtus.
