7 Things That Honda City Owners Are Tired of Hearing

Do you have a Honda City? Well, you’re in luck as we try to cover some of the things you might have heard about your car.

The Honda City is no longer a car. this is right. But now it is a feeling for many.

In its decade long tenure in India, the car has acquired an image of reliability, performance and efficiency. The city has gone through some major changes over the years and each of them has certainly added a little more to the list.

As for any other successful car, this is for the Honda City. The car has been able to make a name for itself while giving rise to certain stereotypes around it.

Keeping all those factors in mind, we take a look at some of the stereotypes that Honda City owners have been hearing for a long time.

“Isn’t it expensive?”
  • Honda city
  • Honda city
  • OK, given.

The Honda City C-Segment sedan is the most expensive sedan in the rivalry. With the 5th generation Honda City starting at Rs 10.90 lakh, it definitely puts a premium on its rivals.

While it has added Honda benefits, the extra premium price makes it a bit irritating. However, there are some additional bonus features in the feature list at an additional cost.

“Isn’t it Better to Drive Otherwise?”
  • 2020 Hyundai Verna 1.0-Litre Turbo Variant
  • 2020 Hyundai Verna 1.0-Litre Turbo Variant
  • Well, this is something a lot of people would disagree with.

The Honda City’s i-VTEC engine was designed with just one thing in mind, the driving force. The 1.5-litre petrol engine churns out 121 PS of power and plenty of torque to ensure that you will never power down.

The steering of the Honda City certainly feels more precise than that of its rivals. However, the narrow body does seem to generate a bit of body roll in the corners.

A Driver’s Car?
  • Honda City: A Driverless Car?
  • Honda City: A Driverless Car?

Well, the above speaks to some extent about the maneuverability of the Honda City. The city driving capability and performance definitely make this a car worth driving.

However, if you are someone who prefers to move around rather than drive, the rear legroom also makes it possible.

  • Why not Ciaz?
  • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz
  • Maruti Suzuki Ciaz
  • This may also bother many Honda City owners.

Yes, Maruti Ciaz is a very good option at a lower price point as compared to the City. However, the city driving capability and overall performance leave the Maruti Ciaz far behind.

While the Maruti Ciaz scores some marks in the fuel efficiency and engine refinement segment, the City takes the front seat for the enthusiasts.

So, ending this argument, all we can say is that if you are someone who likes to spin the engine on the red line (though not recommended) then the Honda City is your next car.

While the Ciaz makes a lot of sense if you want a car that has good performance and packs a punch in the looks and interior department, we recommend the Ciaz, which comes at a low price.

“I-DTEC? Say Goodbye to Refinement”
  • Honda City i-DTEC Diesel Engine
  • Honda City i-DTEC Diesel Engine

This is something that many Honda City owners can agree on. The i-DTEC engine in the city is a bit rough which can be fixed.

The crude nature of the i-DTEC concerns the diesel version of the City a bit.

Still no Turbo?
  • 2020 Honda City RS
  • 2020 Honda City RS

Hyundai has launched the Verna Turbo. Maruti released the Ciaz Sports in its BS6 stable upgrade. Why doesn’t Honda decide to bring the City RS to India?

There were many speculations about the City RS being launched from Honda’s inventory. With pictures of the Thai version of the Honda City RS floating around the internet, we Indians are a little excited.

Introduced in Thailand, the i-VTEC City RS produces 122 hp of power along with 173 Nm of torque.

New City Design? God no!

Honda had a good run with the Honda City. The race went well until a decision was made to revamp the already wonderful exterior of the Honda City.

The new design elements of the Honda City do away with some of its sharp design elements. The fully shaped headlights from the front have been replaced with ‘fluidic-looking’ headlamps.

All this and a few other changes have certainly made the new Honda City a bit heavy. However, this again varies from one consumer to another. Whatever helps Honda increase its sales.
