After all, the new Honda City is ready to sell in the market from next month. The question is whether you should buy it. The City Japanese car maker company Honda is one of the most popular cars. Honda India has high expectations from a new Honda City. Most people in India love SUVs, so in this period would they like to buy the new generation Honda City? Let’s know.
The new Honda City has been introduced with a very interactive look. It looks like a Civic size car and is bigger than its Rivals. It is no surprise that this is the longest car in its class. The headlamps of this car are made from 9 LEDs and LED DRLs have also been integrated. They give a premium experience to the car. The thick chrome grill on the front further enhances its presence.
The rear bumper in the New City is plainer in design than the front, but the LED tail-lamps are slimmer and wider, giving a wider stance when viewing the car from the rear. It looks quite sporty from the back.
Changes have been made to improve the interior of this new Honda car. At the same time, there has been an increase in quality. It has a leather and wood finish while the dual tone look comes in well. The cabin has a ventilated look. You have been given a button for climate control, which used to be very difficult in the previous car, especially while driving. This time it has been made easier. Overall the interior has been given the most luxurious in its class.
As usual there is an 8 inch touchscreen with smartphone connectivity. Apart from this, you also get common facilities like electric sunroof, auto headlamp, ambient lighting, rear sunscreen, etc. While lanewatch technology brings in a camera on the ORVM that projects the image to the left of the screen while using an indicator while driving in traffic.
The city is now also a ‘connected car’. The new City is the second car to feature this after the new Hyundai Verna. It is also the first car to get an Alexa remote. You don’t really get an Alexa speaker, but it is through your smartphone. It has 32 features. In terms of safety, the new city has 6 airbags, vehicle stability assist, hill start assist, tire pressure monitoring system, rear camera, emergency stop signal, lane watch. Apart from this, it is an ASEAN N-cap 5-star rating car.
Honda City has a new 1.5l petrol BS6 engine that generates 121 bhp and 145Nm torque. A 6-speed manual and a CVT is very useful as an everyday car. Its engine is quite smooth and quiet and works well in CVT traffic. When compared to the petrol engine in the current city and the competition, the new city has the smoothest motor.
The new Honda City has a quieter cabin and we think it is better than the current city. There is less noise and petrol works easily. For city traffic, it rides very well and is also easy to drive. However, if you drive it fast, the CVT automatic makes a little noise, thus you feel that it is not a sporty sedan but a quiet and comfortable cruiser.
Due to the location in the current Honda City, a customer got a lot of love from it. At the same time, Honda has worked on increasing it for this new generation model and now a lot of space has been given in this new model. It is the most comfortable in its class. There is a lot of space inside to spread the legs. Three people can sit comfortably in it. Also, in this new city you can drive comfortably with focus, it is quite comfortable.

We hoped that the prices of the new Honda City would be increased. It may not be the choice of drivers in view of the prices but it is a bit difficult to beat due to its features, quality, space, premium look.
