From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Honda City

In all these years, the Honda City has been a benchmark when it comes to space on the inside. The current generation Honda City still manages to outclass all of its rivals when it comes to outright space and comfort on the inside, with a clear focus on the comfort of the occupants at the rear. The legroom and under-thigh support of the Honda City’s rear seat still manages to be in a league of cars from one segment above.

The Honda City’s 1.5-litre petrol engine, despite being a decade old now, still has the sweetness and refinement which one would expect from an entry-level sedan. Not only this, the performance levels too is quite decent, and while it misses out the on the zing of the first-generation version, the engine still feels zesty enough to bring out the fun side of yours.

With features like electric sunroof, full LED headlamps, leather upholstery, curtain airbags, and push-button start-stop system, the Honda City has got all the features at right places to make you feel that you have brought a premium car at its price.

Honda Civic

Despite being a car meant for masses, the Honda Civic looks absolutely smashing. The blended looks of a coupe and a luxury saloon have worked wonders for the Honda Civic, as the car does manage to turn many heads with its sharp and eye-catching sporty design.

While it is not as futuristic and ahead of its times on the inside as the eighth generation version was, the current tenth generation version of the Honda Civic still is very modern and feature-rich on the inside. You do get all the comfort and convenience features on the inside which one would expect from a midsize sedan of this category.

Honda has always plonked in the best of VTEC technology in the Honda Civic, and the current generation version is no different. Having the same 1.8-litre powertrain from the previous generation, the new Civic is also being offered with an optional 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine which promises the thrills of a 2.4-litre engine.

Honda City

While the arrow shot design still manages to impress everyone with its aerodynamic profile, the fact that this very design is in existence for almost a decade now makes it look a bit dated. The features like LED headlamps and machined alloy wheels do try to hide its age, but it still needs a refresh now, considering the fact that all of its competitors have been updated quite comprehensively in recent times.

While the interior feels feature-rich and premium, the overall layout of the dashboard, as well as instrument console too, needs an upgrade. Some of the switches and plastics feel a bit low in quality, which do not go well with the overall premium theme of the car.

Honda Civic

As with the previous generation, while the Civic feels large on the inside, the rear seat cabin doesn’t feel as it belongs to a car of this class. The legroom and knee room are only decent, while the headroom is at a premium due to the sloping roofline.

While the 1.8-litre petrol engine is pretty good in terms of outright power, the CVT gearbox robs the driving fun a little bit, as the long rubber-band effect of the CVT minimizes the thrill of the power delivery. The paddle shifters, however, do try hard to spice up the things a little bit.
