More About Honda City

The new headlights, front fog lamps, foldable ORVMs with turn blinker, sunroof, chrome door handles, shark-fin antenna, alloy wheels and several other styling elements reflect the premium class of the car. With a longer wheelbase, Honda City offers more cabin space than before. The sedan comes integrated with eight-speaker stereo system with CD player, Aux-in and Bluetooth support, a climate control unit with front and rear passengers, rear parking camera, power outlets at rear seats, a five-inch LCD display, an instrument cluster with the ‘Econ’ light setting, a start-stop button, a touch-screen panel, and several other advanced features. This time, Honda is more focussed on fuel efficiency and has introduced Honda City diesel, which delivers a class-leading mileage of 26 kmpl (ARAI certified). The sedan shares both its petrol and diesel engines with the compact sedan – Amaze. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine delivers a peak power output of 98 bhp and a torque of 200 Nm. This power unit is offered with a six-speed manual gearbox only. The City petrol comes boosted with a 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine, which can be bought either with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automatic transmission. It offers a maximum power of 117 bhp with 146 Nm of torque. On the fuel efficiency front, the City petrol leads its class and offers a whopping 17.8 kmpl and 18 kmpl of mileage with manual and automatic transmission, respectively. In terms of drivability, handling and safety, the fourth-generation Honda City has an upper hand as compared to its rivals. With low maintenance cost and cheaper spare parts, the City proves to be a worthy, economical deal. Available in five trims (E, S, SV, V and VX), the Honda City costs between Rs. 7.42 lac and Rs. 11.10 lac (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Honda City is bigger, sleeker and richer from inside, as compared to its predecessor. The top-end variants of the car get an eight-speaker stereo system, while the mid and base variants get a four-speaker music system. Both the multimedia systems support Aux-in and Bluetooth. Other advanced features offered with the car are rear parking camera, power outlets at rear seats, a five-inch LCD display, an instrument cluster with the ‘Econ’ light setting, a start-stop button, a touch-screen panel, glossy dashboard, etc., which reflect the high-class sophistication and comfort level of the sedan. The chunky steering feels good to hold. The driver seat is adjustable and the driving position is quite comfortable. With 2600 mm long wheelbase, the City offers ample legroom and cabin space. The boot space is reasonably purposeful and large measuring around 510 litres.
The City is based on Honda’s new design theory of “EXCITING H!!!,” which is known as Sleek Crossmotion. Honda’s new design language comprises three basic elements- High Tech, High Tension and High Touch, which represent innovative aspect, striking design, and fine texture and polished surface, respectively. The fourth-generation City shares a great resemblance with its predecessor. The length (4, 440 mm) and width (1, 695 mm) of the car have remained unchanged. However, the height and wheelbase are stretched upto 10mm and 50mm, measuring around 1, 495 mm and 2, 600 mm, respectively. The “arrow-head” front fascia looks very refreshing with redesigned headlights, front fog lamps and foldable ORVMs with turn blinker. The side profile is managed by prominent side crease, chrome door handles, a sunroof and alloy wheels. The wheels and the 175/65 R15 size of tyres are borrowed from its elder sibling. However, tyres feel very skinny and disproportionate. Its rear hasn't received much alteration, but the new shark-fin antenna adds more style to its personality. The Honda City will be offered in six vibrant shades: Golden Brown metallic, Urban Titanium Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Alabster Silver Metallic, Carnelian Red Pearl and Taffeta White.
Known for its powerful and fuel efficient engines, Honda has now launched City with a diesel engine for the very first time and that too with the most fuel efficient one. The case is no different with the petrol models; the Petrol mill too offers a class-leading fuel economy. The City diesel with the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine returns an impressive mileage of 26 kmpl, along with producing a maximum power output of 98 bhp with 200 Nm of peak torque. It’s the same engine that powers Amaze. This power unit is boosted with the VGT (Variable Geometry Turbo) technology. The fourth-generation City petrol derives its power from the 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine, which comes mated with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic transmission. The CVT automatic transmission is 10 percent lighter than the conventional CVTs. Coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission, it delivers a class-leading mileage of 17.8 kmpl, while with the automatic transmission, it delivers an even better mileage of 17.9 kmpl. This power train delivers a peak power output of 117 bhp with 146 Nm of torque. The City diesel is competent to sprint to 100 kmph from standing still in 12.5 seconds, while the City petrol can achieve 0-100 kmph just in 10 seconds with a top speed of 195 kmph.
Honda cars are recognized for their powerful engines and fuel efficiency, and the Honda City is not an exception here. Claimed to be the most fuel efficient car of India, the all-new City diesel offers an outstanding mileage of 26 kmpl. The City diesel is offered with a six-speed manual transmission option. On the other side, the sedan petrol variant comes mated either with a five speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic gearbox. The CVT automatic gearbox is 10 percent lighter this time, which has made it more fuel efficient than the manual version. The City petrol with MT delivers 17.8 kmpl, while with CVT, it returns 17.9 kmpl.
The City feels smooth and sturdy even on uneven roads. Honda is more focussed on the overall performance and fuel efficiency, and has introduced the Honda City as an ideal luxury sedan. Tuned with the ECU and a six-speed transmission, the City diesel is a great vehicle to drive. The refinement levels are better than before. Despite sharing its diesel engine with Amaze, the City diesel isn't that noisy. The clutch and gearbox are smooth. The turbo lag is negligible. The engine feels rev-happy upto 4100 rpm, but above this line, it starts shivering. The zigzag pattern and low tension oil seals for piston coating reduce the engine friction and improve the NVH level. The throttle response is prompt and power delivery is linear. The mid-range performance isn't impressive, but at high speeds, the car overcomes this issue. With a purpose to enhance the engine economy, Honda has boosted the diesel engine with double needle plug and valve timing. Along with this, the low viscosity oil, a high swirl port and an offset crankshaft add more to its performance. The aluminium power unit, and light body built and parts contribute to the overall ride quality and handling of the car. The robust front McPherson struts and rear H-shaped torsion beam suspension system not only improve the sedan’s rigidity by 24 percent, but also absorbs the jerks and bumps very well. However, the skinny tyres are really disappointing. The sedan is insulated with high-quality sound insulation material to bring a pleasing driving experience. The turning radius is also well controlled.
Braking performance of the next-generation City is quite impressive. The sedan comes integrated with the advanced ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution) and collapsible electric power assisted steering that handles panic braking situations effectively. The front McPherson struts with stabilizer and coil spring, and the rear torsion beam axle spring suspension system is matured enough to absorb jerks on rough surfaces. The City comes loaded with several active and passive safety features, like SRS Dual front air bags, ABS with EBD, active headrest for the driver and front passenger, rear windshield defogger, G-CON structure around the passengers, seatbelts, and many more.
