1. BUYING EXPERIENCE:-
I booked this car in January from my local showroom, everything went smooth and their pre-purchase support and guidance was really professional. The car was promised to be delivered in 2 weeks and they fulfilled their words. The delivery experience was very premium and classy. I have to say it, Honda makes their customers feel luxurious and classy. All the paper work was done in just few minutes and the officials were very helpful. Also the manager bought a cake for us and we celebrated the day like a family. 10/10 marks to Honda for such a service.
2. DRIVING EXPERIENCE:-
Honda City has been a benchmark for luxury and comfort since the very first year of it's launch. Honda has been proving it ever since they stepped into India that they make the best petrol engines in the industry. The punch you feel when you accelerate is tremendous. Keeping in mind the prospect of being comfortable and fun to drive at the same time, This is a balanced car for every enthusiast Indian. I do feel some lag at the initial gears but once the car hits upper RPM it just glides over the road with beauty. Overall ergonomics and ease to access the features while driving is quite good. Talking about the driving position and overall vision of the road, The All New City provides a tremendous flat upper dashboard which enhances the experience and makes the driver feel fluidic.
3. LOOKS AND PERFORMANCE:-
Looks and elegance of this car is actually the main reason I made the decision to buy this over Hyundai Verna and it's other competitors. The smooth and eye pleasing cuts and creases over the chasse of the car is surely a HEAD TURNER. It's tail lamps and the back appearance somewhat replicates BMW 5 Series. Owning this car will make you feel like the, "King of the road." Premium and luxurious appeal of this vehicle will surely overwhelm your soul at the first sight. Coming the performance talks, Let me be clear that this engine is a fabulous outcome of Honda's engineers. I own an automatic variant ZX CVT, keeping in mind my driving record i.e. enjoying the ride and focusing on comfort. If you're a person with same vision then this is the vehicle you must consider. Honda provides a smooth and refined engine that enjoys high RPM values and glides smoothly once it hits it's optimum figures.
4. SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE:-
Honda is well known for it's liability and post purchase availability throughout its customers. We all need to agree that after sales services and affordable costing were the major core blocks that made Honda an established brand in India. My Car has undergone 3 services, in which the paid one costed me somewhat around 7000/- and you may have amazing discounts over it as well.
PROS & CONS:-
I will be mentioning 5 pros and 5 cons, Lets start with the pros first:-
1. Elegant and premium "Head turning" looks
2. Luxurious and useful features like 360 degree view camera, appropriate storage space and comfy seats
3. The Sunroof adds an airy feeling in the cabin space, making the passengers feel less claustrophobic.
4. The ride quality and the smoothness the car provides is unmatchable in its segment.
5. The boot capacity 506L is significantly huge.
1. Less mileage 15-16 km/l
2. Engine lags at lower RPM
3. Non adjustable backseat head rest
4. No Diesel automatic variant
5. Feels underpowered if compared to it's rivals
And here we come to the end of this review where I would highly suggest you to buy this vehicle over anything in the market if and only if "Comfort and luxury" are your priorities. This car is most likely built for the people who like to make a powerful impact of them over the minds of others.
