S Chatterjee's review on
City 20th Anniversary Edition CVT Petrol
Year of Manufacture : 2018 | Driven no. of Kms. :
It is a perfect combination of Safety, Performance and Style in that order of Priority. The R and D gone into designing a Honda is distinctly visible. Although am a Maruti loyalist and would have gone for a much cheaper Ciaz if it had a Sunroof but now, Thank God it did not.
The auto transmission in the form of CVT is a wonder. The prospective buyer must shed the typical Indian mentality of Automatic Consumption is Higher. The systems in the machine itself ensures fuel economy by the driver. It is already giving much more milage than my earlier Swift (Petrol). The Cruise Control pampers you so much that one looks forward for opportunities to drive more and drive long. The uphill driving becomes so easy. The auto stabilizing feature makes turning a childs play, without reducing speed.
The Safety features are fool proof and too many. The dealership would be able to explain them better. The keyless entry is literal as one does not require to even push the remote button to enter the Car. The proximity sensor of the driver unlocks the car. A small but extremely useful feature.
The high beam of headlights are too low for convenient driving in absolute dark conditions. In hill driving, it actually becomes dangerous.
The User Guide Book is confusing, voluminous and not vehicle specific. From America to Africa to East Asia to India to 6 variants covered in one book. Every time, in each page, you have to look for your machine variant. Poor cost cutting measure by Honda, must say. One buying a 13Lakh machine would atleast expect a dedicated user manual.
Reverse Parking Camera is excellent with three views but a Sensor should also have been there. Makes reversing easy.
The Rs 700 worth WiFi adaptor should be part of the basic kitting atleast in the top variants. Shows Brand Honda in poort light as it reduces utility of the beautiful infotainment display.
I was a bit surprised to find that the top end variant too comes without floor mats.
The tray under the rear shield is awkwardly high, blocks rear view mirror vision.
