HONDA ALL NEW CITY

INTRODUCTION

Clearly then, for the All New City to get back some of that preferential treatment being showered onto SUVs by customers; it would need to be special. The same onus lies on this, the CVT version. And it all begins with the design.

The new car, even though longer than the current City, looks hunkered down courtesy its wider stance and reduced overall height. Thankfully, the lowering of the height hasn’t made any difference to the ground clearance of the car. Additionally, the new design gives the City an air of modernity along with a stronger, sportier stance

There are other visual clues that help the All New City standout as well. The new all-LED headlamps look more modern and technical. The thick slab of chrome has a very ‘look-at-me’ bling character to it. At the rear, the tail lamps are new and very likeable with the whole pronounced 3D effect. The new bumper has a little more aggression to it as well. And overall the new City has that tail-up stance that’s been so typical of the Citys over generations.

 

This is the automatic version of the Honda All New City. It will co-exist with the current City already on sale in India. And if you are interested in the petrol manual or the diesel manual versions of the car.

But, just to quickly run you through the basics if you haven’t already read our other reviews on the new City… The Honda City has always been a benchmark car. It has moved goalposts in its class with the introduction of every new version. But now the playing field has changed with the introduction of popular SUVs like the Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos.

INTERIOR

INTERIOR

The dashboard is simple and easy on the eye. The new steering is chunky and good to hold. And, though the clocks aren’t the most modern in terms of design, these are easy to read and pack in a whole lot of info. The overall look and feel of the new City’s interior is that of a more upmarket car. The chrome outlines, the wood inserts and the liberal use of leather only add to this. We also love the way the various dials, buttons, and rollers operate; they have a very satisfying crisp, positive and tactile click every time you use them.

 

 

If there’s something we aren’t pleased about, it is the lack of soft grain plastic, especially on the dash and on the doors.

Equipment-wise, on this top-spec ZX trim, one gets a whole lot of goodies.

There’s a sunroof, of course. But it also gets a height-adjustable seat for the driver; a multifunctional steering wheel that also adjusts for rake; cruise control, a colour TFT screen as part of the instrumentation; and an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with everything from Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Weblink.

 

 

It gets a retractable rear windscreen sunshade. It has ambient lighting. It gets LaneWatch courtesy a Camera mounted on the left ORVM. There’s a reversing camera with a normal, wide and top view options. And it gets climate control, voice command, and a connectivity suite in the form of Honda Connect.

Honda Connect is the new car’s big party trick. It essentially has the same functionality as the connectivity solutions offered by the likes of the new Creta, the Seltos, and the MG Hector. So on this automatic version, you can start the car, turn on the AC, check the fuel levels, find the car, check air pressures, and get to know if your driver has been driving too fast! You can also geo-fence the car.

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

This new car feels just like a City should, and that’s paying it a big compliment. It has a lovely driving position, well-bolstered seats, high seating, and great visibility all round, and spot-on ergonomics. It just feels right, and at-home from the word go.

Engine wise, this petrol engine says Honda, is all-new. It now uses a double overhead cam or DOHC layout instead of single overhead cam used on the current model. It also gets variable valve timing now to go along with variable valve lift. Honda has also worked towards reducing friction, improving airflow, and making the engine lighter. The engine is mated to a CVT.

BRAKING AND SAFETY

BRAKING AND SAFETY

the All New City is best enjoyed at a more relaxed pace. Helped no doubt by its comfy and cosseting ride. The car rounds the small bumps and ditches without bother and the passengers don’t get jolted or thrown around. The ride is equally sorted at high speeds over such less than perfect roads. The car doesn’t pitch or rock excessively either. But, over deeper potholes and square edged bumps, the ride can get noisy and a bit crashy. Now, the car might also feel slightly unsettled over really bad roads, but it never feels hairy. And that’s always welcome.

In fact, the handling on the new City is quite reassuring as well. It remains planted and unwavering even over undulated roads. And around corners, it feels light footed and agile and precise too. Now, the steering on the City isn’t exactly brimming with feel, but it is light and accurate and surprisingly quick!

Overall, the fifth generation City is a car you will enjoy driving, even with the CVT; I know I did.

Should I buy one?

The All New City has most certainly moved the goal posts further. In fact, it is a better Honda City no matter how you look at it. But yes, it is more evolution than being something totally extraordinary that might blow you away. And it stems from the fact that instead of starting from a clean piece of paper, the fifth generation City is based heavily on the current generation car.

The good things: It is quieter, more refined, more feature-rich, better in quality, more driveable, and more engaging to drive than the current City. It is also nicer looking in my opinion. And more desirable.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Honda All New City

 

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

New Honda City is very spacious. Length & width have increased and the height has been reduced. The car looks very stylish and has a lot of features.

Honestly a car full of drags and Noises. There are way better cars available in the market than this one. It wasn’t even pulling up on a mediocre slope.

for Honda All New City

My old car (Chevy beat) completed 8 years and i was waiting for the all new city to be launched and finally its out i.e. in July. I went to the showroom and the salespeople themselves were excited to have the all-new city with them to propose to their customers (being one of the best in its class).

    Popular used car Honda All New City

    Ex-Showroom price ₹10,94,000
    The Honda City is an aspirational sedan in its segment and continues to take the fight to similarly-priced SUVs like the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta. The new-gen model is sportier-looking, spacious, offers more features and feels premium than the fourth-gen City, which will continue to be sold alongside this. It is also exciting to drive and generates an emotion which its rivals lack.
