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.

Nissan Almera

The Nissan Almera might belong to the most entry-level price point of compact sedans. However, given its nice length and wheelbase dimensions, the Almera has a good road presence with longer footprints on the surface. Thanks to this road presence, the Nissan Almera has got the aura of a ‘big car’ which a person generally upgrading from a compact hatchback to a sedan demands from his new bigger car.

Thanks to a much longer wheelbase, the Nissan Almera offers best in class rear seat experience, which some of the sedans from one category could also not provide. With great legroom and knee room and good under-thigh support, the rear passengers are being offered good comfort levels in the Almera.

With a bigger focus on comfort for the passengers, the Nissan Almera also is praiseworthy for the plush ride quality it offers. The suspension is on a softer side, which works wonders while driving over broken sections of the tarmac.

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.

Nissan Almera

While the Nissan Almera has the stance and dimensions of a big sedan, the interior cabin design, fit and finish are something which dulls out the overall experience. The dashboard feels low rent with a dated design, while at the same time, the choice of materials also feel as if they are built to cost.

Despite being positioned as a sedan which offers a suitable upgrade from a compact hatchback, the Nissan Almera lacks a number of premium features which nowadays are present in all of their competitors. Features like LEDs and a modern touch screen infotainment system are some things which are considered a necessity in a sedan, and the Nissan Almera lacks a number of them.

The 1.5-litre petrol engine in the Nissan Almera lacks the punch and feels dull when revved hard. The engine gets its job done, but the driving enthusiasts might not be impressed with its boring power delivery.
