Please Tell Us Your City

Cars Q&A

I intend to buy a Honda City ZX (EXI or GXI), however now-a-days I see so many Honda's in the used-car market, that now I am a bit skeptical of the car. Could you please highlight on the pros and cons of owning a Honda City? I would appreciate if you could detail the maintenance and spare-wise costs. How would the option of considering a Toyota Corolla be?

Ron, I think one of the reasons you don't see many Honda Cities in the used car market is becoz not many want to sell them it's such a good car :-) But seriously, it's a highly efficient car (13KMPL in city with AC) and reliable too, with plush interiors and finish. Is kind of low on power with only 77 BHP, but just right for city driving. Annual maintenance would come to around 10-12 thousand, Honda service centers are pretty good as well. A GXI will have more frills like Fog Lamps, Beige interiors, side garnish, body colored handles and driver seat height adjustable. A Corolla is a good option too, but a new one is about 3 Lakhs more expensive than a City, so a used one would be more expensive as well. You can try Honda's own showroom if they have any used one through Auto Terrace.

Hi Ron-Compare to each other like Toyota & Honda, both are gud cars,but if you have a low budget & also looking for a good mileage car-I will sugest you to go for But if you like power & thinks that you have to drive sometimes on highways also & mileage is not a big deal-than go for t.corolla. 1more thing-Corolla is little expensive in serviceing,price & little less on mileage.But its also a very good car.
Well H.City-Good on mileage,cheaper in serviceing(compare to corolla) also less in price with corolla.
Both are good car's & carry's different gud point's individually & both are good, according to the product & manufacturing.
*Now it depends on you, weither you go for pre-own or the new one..Go for new..

Honda city does not consume much money for periodical service. Maintenance cost is also very low. Mileage is very good. It is worth for money if you look at interiors as well as in external appearence

Expert`s comment:

Honda City ZX is a good car with overall performance and looks.However with launch of New City at app same price the demand for ZX has come down.It will make a good option as used car rather than New.Maintenance is of average and bill could be app 3k if you leave for general service with washing.Spares cost differes depending upon actual part to be replaced.
