If you are searching for a premium mid-size sedan, Honda City is worth looking at. Since its launch in 1998, Honda City has been a flag bearer of the company and has set the sedan segment benchmark. Last year Honda launched the fifth generation of City and is currently planning to introduce City hybrid in 2022 in the Indian market. The new Honda City has a fabulous look with a sporty stance and prominent shoulder line, the "Katana blade" look as termed by Honda. Fifth-generation makeover has made the City more stylish outside and at the same time equally comfortable inside. It has received a whole lot of smart tech and features which we are going to discuss here.
Honda city is the first car in its segment to be equipped with Alexa remote compatibility. The new City has also received an updated cabin with a multifunctional steering wheel and a large electronic sunroof. You will also find new air conditioning vents along with an 8-inch infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other smart features include a left side LaneWatch camera, Hill Start Assist feature, a tyre pressure monitor, Automatic Headlight control, and an Agile handling assist. Along with these features, the City's low maintenance cost in the segment makes it worth buying. Honda has launched City in a total of 9 variants, including petrol and diesel and 5 colours. The ex-showroom price of the base version is 11.16 lacs, and for the top model, it goes up to 15.11 lacs.
In the Indian market, Honda City competes with Hyundai Verna, Skoda Slavia, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Toyota Yaris, and Volkswagen Vento.
The 5th generation Honda City has an elegant look that makes it appealing from the outside. The interior has also been updated a bit, and you can quickly notice premium quality leather seats and Upholstery.
Honda city has a next-generation Honda Connect system that offers 32 connected car features, Alexa support, and a Telematics control unit. These advanced systems make driving a lot safer and effortless.
The fifth-generation City is the longest and widest sedan in the segment, making it quite spacious. It also boasts a generous 506-litre boot capacity.
With BS6 compilations, the engine produces 6600 RPM, and acceleration is pretty fast; you can go to 100 KMPH in the 2nd transmission.
The superior CVT gearbox makes driving a smoother and pleasant experience with its 7-Speed Paddle Shifters.
City's airbags are the world's first i-SRS Airbag systems, better known for their quick deployment technology.
Honda never forgets its " Man maximum, machine minimum" motto; it has wonderfully used every inch of usable space inside the cabin in City too.
The base variant of City is more expensive than its rivals like Ciaz, Verna, and others. However, the petrol variant is close in range but still little expensive than them.
Compared to its rivals, City's suspension is a bit weak, and the increased number of bends around the corner has made driving a bit tough and doesn't instil confidence in the driver.
The Honda City also has a higher cabin noise. We feel the infotainment system could have also been better.
Honda City has a long history in the Indian market, and usually people associate Honda with the City model. The car has evolved with time and appeals to many customers looking for a premium mid-size sedan, apart from the price tag, which is slightly higher but justified with the smart features. If you are an avid driving lover and car enthusiast, the petrol version combined with a manual gearbox will be a pleasant experience for you. Coupled with ample legroom and excellent thigh support, fifth-generation City can accommodate five persons and is a perfect option if looking for a family-oriented spacious option.The 3-D tail lamps and R16 diamond-cut alloys wheel make it more stylish with a blind view monitoring camera on the left. The cabin is equipped with many first-in-segment gadgets and technologies, like G-Meter, Digital Speed and Cruise Control Display, and much more. Along with these features, Honda City 2020 gives a power-packed performance.
Apart from the fifth-generation City, Honda is also carrying on the older generation. While it has fielded the newer generation as a premium sedan and the older generation as a lower variant. On the downside, the suspension has become soft, and it lacks an automatic diesel variant, ventilated seats, and powered drive seats.
Honda City is relatively safe to drive and has got a 5-star safety rating in the ASEAN NCAP crash tests. In the end, you get what you pay for; by looking at the above information, Honda city is worth giving a test ride.
