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.

Proton Persona

For an entry-level sedan, the Proton Persona looks quite smart with a flowing design which looks very youthful. The curvy layout of headlamps, as well as tail lamps, do make the Proton Persona feel a car from the current generation, which is something which other entry-level sedans do lack due to cost-cutting. 

Another praiseworthy aspect for an entry-level sedan like the Proton Persona is the amount of safety features it is packed with. The Proton Persona is equipped with all the bells and whistles in this arena, like six airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, vehicle stability control, and front and rear parking sensors, which make the car feel safe and secure.

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.

Proton Persona

While the exterior design of the Proton Persona feels youthful, the in-cabin experience is not all that premium, thanks to a very sober-looking cabin design as well as pared-down build quality. Also, there are a number of crucial features which have been put up in their very basic forms, like the headlamps which miss out on LEDs or projectors or lack of a modern automatic climate control system.

The headlamps have a very nice design, however, the visibility of the throw from them during dark conditions is not too good as compared to that of other cars in this category.
