Honda City IMAGES


The Honda City is one of those cars that has wowed auto enthusiasts for more than a decade. People still consider it as a status symbol. Honda’s brilliant built quality, reliability, and a history of producing excellent vehicles, combined with the superior performance and aesthetics of the City, makes it one of the most desirable vehicles. It is equally good for a family looking to upgrade from a hatchback as well as for a young auto enthusiast who goes for solid performance and looks. Even though the City may be considered a bit overpriced, most users are willing to pay that little extra for the superior quality, performance, and reliability.

The variant that we recommend is the petrol automatic. This is a delight for people who do not particularly enjoy the hassle of gear changing, and it is a perfect choice if you’re living in a crowded city. However, that doesn’t mean that this is a bad choice for a manual enthusiast, as it comes with paddle shifters that provide an even engaging drive to the manual lovers. This car also comes with a top-class CVT gearbox, the gear shifts are butter smooth, with no lag whatsoever. The CVT variant has a slight dip in the mileage figures, but that trade-off is worth it, considering the kind of performance the vehicle provides.

To sum it up, the Honda City is a wonderful vehicle suitable for people from all walks of life.
