Detailed Honda City Review

What's Good?

• Silk smooth engine, sometimes I end up cranking an on engine • Sunroof looks rich, and people envy about it, looks airy feeling to the car • Linear power delivery even for the automatic, I didn’t find the car sluggish • Seamless gear shifts, no drop in power at any band • Feels premium due to chrome inserts at the right places (AC Vents, Door Handles, etc.) • Acres of space for back benchers too, and swallows the third person easily due to flat floor • Comfort is unmatched, and the leather seats snug you tight. • High speed stability is good; the steering feel is precise and weighs up beautifully, though not on par with Linea. City can also be termed as Point and Shoot Performer. • Love the Arrow Shot Design; it looks beautiful even after 4 years of its existence. • LED tail lamps are welcome upgrade • Increased ground clearance, means no more scrapping from below • 3 Step door open and close, just as European cars • Cruise Control is Boon to use, I end up using it in the Mumbai City limits, Yes you heard it right, and it’s addictive • Pedal Shifts wait impatiently for your orders when driven in S mode. • Overall Visibility is good • ICE is too good as OEM; I believe it’s an Alpine system with JBL Speaker setup. • Uncompromising Safety Features (Airbags, ABS with EBD), G-Con, etc.

What can improve?

• ACC and Bluetooth Audio System • Auto folding mirrors, I mean common, younger sibling has it. (Jazz and now even the Amaze) • Illumination strip on the power window controls, I mean how am I supposed to find he buttons in the dark. • Doors don’t auto lock, I had it in Zen Estilo as factory fitment. • Only instant fuel economy, it doesn’t give average fuel consumption. • No two trip meters on the board. • Super weak headlights • Spare wheel is not an alloy • Interiors feel outdated when compared to modern sedans • No carpet covering for the boot • Blue illumination for the speedometer console, however Orange illumination for the centre console. Looks odd. Wonder how much time would it take to change the bulb colour for the centre console
