The 4th generation Honda City has taken the game up a notch over its popular predecessor and for the segment as a whole. While the length and width of the car remain the same as the third generation model the new City is 40mm taller and the wheelbase has gone up by 50mm compared to the outgoing model.
The new Honda City wears the company’s H Design concept that works around the company’s ‘man maximum machine minimum’ philosophy that has incorporated new design elements such as new bumpers that feature a variation of angular designs and smooth curves, the head lights maintain a similar profile to those on the earlier car while the front grille features a solid bar of chrome with the Honda logo placed prominently in the centre. The front bumper has a centrally located air dam with fog lamp housings at either end. The corners of the bumpers have flat contours that end at a sharp edge with the front then flowing downwards between the grille and the air dam. The lower section of the bumper ends in a angular manner with sharp edges that lend a nice visual appeal.
Around the sides, a prominent crease runs from the lower section of the front doors to the tail lights giving the car a sporty profile that is further accentuated by a rearward sloping coupe-like roofline featuring a shark fin radio ariel, the lower section of the doors features a curve stretching from the top of the rocker panel at the front to the rear wheel arch, lending a visual break, while new five spoke alloy wheels complete the new side profile.
At the back, the new Honda City gets new tail lights that are sleeker and longer and flow on to the boot lid. The tail lights are connected by a strip of chrome located over the license plate holder. The boot lid and bumper slope out from under the tail lights to give the car a bigger look. The rear bumper gets a curve at the lower section to break the monotony of the otherwise flat contour with a faux rear skirt incorporating reflectors.
While the exteriors have been updated its the interiors of the new City that is the real game changer for the car. The front seats are supportive and well cushioned while the wide rear seat can accommodate three adults in complete comfort and provide plenty of under thigh support and legroom is more than plenty with the longer wheelbase of the car. The new City also has a bigger boot than its predecessor with a commodious 510 litres of space.
The quality of trim materials are good on the new Honda City and the dashboard comes with silver accents and piano black trim is used in the centre console and around the driver’s side air vent to lend an upmarket appeal. The quality of plastics are good and even the air vents feel solid and well built.
Honda’s new city packs in a healthy equipment list with a new infotainment system with a 5-inch LCD screen that gets Bluetooth and AUX connectivity along with CD and DVD compatibility, the car also offers first-in-class touch screen controls for the climate control system with air vents for rear seat passengers as well. The new Honda City comes with electric power steering power windows all around, electric ORVMs, engine start/stop button, keyless entry, rear defogger and sunroof.
Under the hood, the fourth generation Honda City continues to be powered by the renowned 1.5 litre petrol engine developing 119PS of power @6,600 rpm and 145Nm of torque @ 4,600 rpm but has been retuned to offer better driveability, the engine continues to be mated to a five-speed manual gearbox while the automatic gearbox is now a CVT unit for better fuel efficiency. The CVT has been tuned to overcome the rubber band effect associated with the type of gearbox and comes with seven stepped ratios that are responsive and can be controlled via paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. The manual Honda City is claimed to return 17.8 km/pl while the automatic is said to be more efficient with a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 17.9 km/pl.
For the first time the Honda City has been equipped with a diesel engine as well. The motor in question is the company’s 1.5 litre i-DTEC four cylinder oil burner that made its Indian debut in the Honda Amaze compact sedan. The engine develops an identical 100 PS of power @ 3,600 rpm and 200Nm of torque at 1,750 rpm. However, the unit in the new City has been mated to a six-speed manual gearbox for better fuel efficiency in the taller sixth gear that makes it India’s most efficient car in India with a claimed fuel efficiency of 26 km/pl.

Power - now feels HONDA with 118BHP... but really concern for people who think of mileage - still a big Question???? but sure it may not be worse as Honda has introduced I-Vtec Engine.

Pros Brand Image that's it
Cons quality is good , Fiat Linea is good option, uncomfortable seats
I Am having a honda city 2009 model but the cost is 8.75 on road at the price means 7.5 laakh you can buy fiat linea toppest model emotion pack wwhich looks like driving a luxury car , the equipment in honda city is not good only honda badge is good so i did plan for the new car and bought fiat linea in february, i find linea gives more value for money as it is 1.2 lakh rupees cheap with more features than honda city top model So if you want to waste your money go for honda city if you are having hard earned money go for fiat linea, i love fiat linea and don't like honda .fiat linea its seats are more comfortable and good aironditioning and suspension so choice is yours value for money fiat linea gives

Pros Great looks Good Mileage
Cons Hill driving performance wanting
An excellent choice but an over rated car and definitely overpriced for its comparable performance with cars in its class. Nevertheless gives very good mileage at 2500-3000 rpm and around steady 80kmph on overdrive (5th) But the minute you step on teh gas the mileage goes kaput. Gave me 18.5 kmph from Delhi to Chandigarh but only 12kmph from Ambala to Dehradun. Chandigarh to Ambala 14.5 kmph. Hill driving is a let down, The mild gradient to Dehradun gave me a feeling of an underpowered engine and had to drive in 3rd most of the time even in mild gradients. As soon as one lososes speed on the highway you jsut cannot carry on on top gear but have to shift to a much higher gear. Is it the iVTEC ? High speed handling a bit shaky but one effortlessly goes over 150kmph. Very good and powerful airconditioning The passengers at the rear often asked to turn it down. Headlights are not powerful and one could wish for better from such a costly car. NO fog lights a big let down. The fog lights at the dealer are prohi bitively expensive --Rs 20000/- No local brands as yet. Smooth drive low engine noise very good drving control at moderate speeds Great looks. the music systgem is great and gives you some quality output. The mp3 usb attachment is an advantage. Honda Siel India is minitn at our expense. No accessories provided. You have to buy the floor mats and mud gaurds. The horn is not all that good. But still with its super looks an overall great buy. Highly recommended.

Pros revolutionary looks, powerful engine.
Cons uncomfortable drive, less road view, less ground clearance, useless features.
not very comfortable drive, the steering wheel seems heavy to handle, even the ground clearance hasn't been improved. the new honda city 3G disappoints the city admirers........useless features add to customers woes and the price tag!!

Pros Front Look,especially the grill and lights
Cons Rear look is not rich enough and the incompatible music system
The post-purchase resonance is very high due to the over-pricing and the scary prices of Honda extra fittings though it is a pride to ride a Honda City.I was disappointed with the paint fouling which my car had and the incompatible Music System which comes with the car. Uday

Pros Scintillating performance,looks futuristic, awesome fuel economy, comfortable interiors, nice aircon
Cons broad A pillar, suspension can be noisy (clunky) on very large bumps
This car has been one of the best investments made by me - The Honda City VTEC. I love the (best in class) acceleration of the VTEC is also excellent. I just love the floor the throttle and enjoy. There are a few things i\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d like to change about it though. For example the great front seats are fouled by a bump like thing in the suspension that does not let you fold your legs when the seat is drawn back. And the broad A-pillar impairs visibility. Apart from that, it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s very comfortable and teh air conditioner keeps us cool even in teh sweltering heat. If you enjoy driving, I suggest you buy the VTEC, but for families even the iDSi engine (the one on the other models) is also adequate and very driveable. (My uncle has a Gxi) Both have a great fuel economy (the other engine is slightly better). If driven sensibly the VTEC gives about 16Kmpl... but with my driving style I generally get less than 13. If you can spend a little more then definitely go for the Civic which is much better. Clearly the best all rounder in class.
