Bought my honda city back in 2017 as an upgrade from my SX4. After a lot of confusion between CVT and MT ... VX and V...finally I landed up buying a V MT as which is a complete value for money package...till now I have driven 50k km and have no big issues with it, it is absolute fun to drive
-Honda petrol engines are know for their durability...even now we can spot some 1998 city on road...but it is hard to find a Ford ikon or even a fiesta on road.
-nice reliable car and economical cost for service
-1.5 VTEC is the best petrol available in the segment
-poor head unit lags so much touch is insensitive but that isn't a big issue when the car is so lovable to drive...we have 1000 after market options for stereo and not for the engine ...also heard honda has rectified their issues in the new digipad.
- alloy wheels not as good as in VW's
Buttom line--- honda city is the best petrol sendan in the segment just have some reserve money from ur budget to change the stereo and alloy ( after 3 years of purchase).
Definitely consider if your planning to keep the car for longer years.
