Latest Update : Honda has hiked the prices of the City uniformly by Rs 17, Honda City Engine and Transmission : Honda has equipped the sedan with a set of 1. Its claimed mileage figures stand at:.
Honda City Features : It gets inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Weblink support, and ambient lighting. The fifth-gen City also comes with Amazon Alexa remote control and connected car technology that, among other things, enables remote engine-start and door lock-unlock. The price of Honda City starts at Rs. An all-new generation is finally here.
Honda seems to have played it safe, not straying too far from what made the fourth generation a roaring success. The de traits that made the fourth-generation distinct have been carried over. Of course, the City has grown in size a fair bit. At a glance, the added length is apparent and so is the fact that the nose is no longer low and sleek.
A wider grille -- finished in chrome -- extends over the headlamps. The headlamps are sure to be a talking point for their resemblance to the units on the Accord and Civic. Equipped with an array of bright white LEDs, daytime running lamps and LED turn indicators, the City makes a promising first impression. We, however, wish Honda had considered dynamic turn indicators, just to give it an added dose of bling because the rest of the car seems a bit sombre compared to the outgoing generation.
The creases on the side profile are a bit subdued and the inch alloy wheel de continues to be a bit busy. Honda has stuck to weedy section tyres in interest of fuel efficiency. Vertical reflector strips on the bumper help lend some visual contrast to an otherwise straightforward de. From a de standpoint, the City seems to have grown up. The dashboard de is now symmetrical and straightforward, even if visually a bit bland. Colours are a lot more inviting in beige-black and silver, instead of the black and dark-grey.
For that premium touch, Honda has added stitched leather surfaces on the crash pad, elbow rests and the centre console. We wish this extended on to the door p too, to uplift the ambience of the cabin. The seating position now feels a lot more neutral. With the wheelbase remaining unchanged, Honda has resorted to making the dashboard slimmer and used simple horizontal de elements to make more room.
While the overall height has dropped by an inificant 6mm on the outside, headroom is now down by up to 40mm. Also, the front armrest is non-adjustable and placed low. Honda has also shaved off a cool 60mm from the width of the backrest, which might make it a bit uncomfortable for those generously proportioned. Honda claims this has been done to provide the rear occupant better forward visibility. Honda has scooped out the front seatbacks, compounding the amount of space available.
Just like before, the floor is raised at an angle, acting as a natural footrest. Cabin width has taken a minor 35mm hit. There are some thoughtful utility spaces including the cupholders on the armrest and mobile phone pockets in the seatbacks. Front occupants have large door bins, a usable shelf on the centre console, and a few more cubbies around the handbrake. You also get automatic climate control minus the unnecessarily fancy touch-based interface. The reassuring feedback from the rotary knob is satisfying and the colour changing background is a cool party trick.
Honda has also carried over the practical retractable sunblind for the rear windshield. It gets the usual connectivity options including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and also relays feed from the parking camera.
The screen itself looks, feels and responds like an aftermarket setup. Also, we have to point out that the video quality is appalling. The display also relays feed from the new LaneWatch camera placed under the left-wing mirror. Here too, the aspect ratio of the video is a bit off, making cars seem narrower and taller than they actually are. Over and above the usuals including fuel, trip and door information, Honda has also cheekily thrown in a G-force meter.
Another feature that seems interesting is the Amazon Alexa compatibility. However, you can also ask Alexa to do all of it using voice commands. The top-spec Honda City comes equipped with six airbags, ABS with EBD, and a host of tech including hill assist, vehicle stability control as well as tyre deflation warning. Torque, however, remains identical at Nm, but is now delivered earlier. Has the drive experience changed at all? The petrol engine remains familiar to drive.
The feather-light clutch and slick gear throws will keep fatigue at bay. You can drive about in the city in second or third gear all through the day. Third gear, in particular, is quite versatile, letting you pick up from speeds lower than 30kmph, all the way past kmph. The engine feels composed tackling highway duties too, chugging along at rpm at kmph. The introduction of the new 6-speed gearbox is to credit for this.
You could also credit it for the boost in claimed efficiency, which now stands at If you love free-revving non-turbo motors, the City delivers on the sense of drama too. The engine makes a sweet sporty sound as you rev it up. If your idea of clearing your head involves a spirited drive, the City will gladly be your companion.
Honda claims the gearbox behaviour is tailored to suit Indian tastes. Power is delivered in an unhurried but smooth manner, letting you enjoy the drive. You get paddle-shifters too, should you want to have complete control while driving hard and fast through the ghats.
The PS diesel motor feels no different under the bonnet of the new City. You still have a hint of turbo lag under rpm. However, the engine really comes into its comfort zone out on the highways. Claimed efficiency of Honda claims to have improved the NVH characteristics of the new City. This has been done by using rubber beading on both the door and body side, spray foam over welding ts, and even a thicker firewall.
For the diesel, the engine block and the chaincase were worked upon to reduce vibrations. All of these work well in conjunction to deliver a quieter drive experience though it retains its sharp clatter when pushed hard. With the update, Honda has fixed the unnecessarily stiff ride quality that plagued the fourth-generation City. The suspension tune is unique for Indian ro, tailored to take on our potholes and bumps. Shock absorption has improved noticeably and the suspension is also quieter as it goes about tackling them. It remains planted.
Sure, this has introduced a little bit of body roll. With a precise steering, the City continues to be fun around corners.
Braking duties are handled by disc brakes up front and drum brakes at the rear. The brakes bite early and the pedal feel is confidence-inspiring too. The only limiting factor in the overall package for us are the skinny section tyres.
Hard, scratchy plastics feel out of place. An improvement in rear seat space is a pleasant surprise. If you are looking for a car to be driven around in, the City makes for a solid choice. If you pick the petrol-CVT, the smooth automatic will keep you stress-free in traffic too. Considering the added kit on offer, the City is delivering more value for your money. This is especially apparent in the base-spec V variant that adds a whole lot of features for just an additional Rs 25, That said, it continues to be among the most expensive sedans you can buy in this segment.
Excellent ride and handling capabilities. Ground clearance is not at all an issue in the 5th gen. Just glides over bad ro, spacious, luxurious, buttery smooth. Honda City is the best Sedan available in the market at this price range. Driving is very smooth and comfortable.
The base version of this car will provide you almost all. Everything is good. Mileage is kmpl in city ride for CVT Ivtec. Can improve on their mileage. Maintainance cost is good. Service quality is also nice. It's very comfortable for a small family.Diesel honda city
