Honda City Review

Honda Cars India Ltd. was established as a joint venture with Usha International of Siddharth Shriram Group in December 1995 and was formerly named Honda Siel Cars India Ltd. This joint venture was ended in August 2012 when Honda took over the company and changed its name to Honda Cars India Ltd. to make it a 100% subsidiary of Honda. It has its headquarters in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh where also located their manufacturing facility. They also have a manufacturing plant in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan.

Honda Cars India has finally launched the much-awaited 4th generation City sedan with a price tag of INR 7.42 lakh for the base variant of petrol and INR 8.62 lakh for the base diesel variant. Honda City diesel is now officially the most fuel efficient car in India with ARAI certified mileage of 26.0 kmpl under standard test conditions while the petrol model with CVT automatic transmission returns 18.0 kmpl and the manual Honda City return mileage of 17.8 kmpl.

The 2nd and 3rd generation were launched in November 2003 and September 2008 respectively, but City was losing its initial charm due to an increasing competition from other brands, hiking of petrol prices which marked an extraordinary need for a diesel variant which was missing in City and growing old features of this sedan as compared to the other new machines. Thus, it is a great move by Honda to retain their dominion over a segment that they hold so preciously for a decade.


2014 new Honda City is based on the same platform of Jazz and Vezel and follows Honda's H Design Concept (Human Centric Design Element). It has got the sleek cross-motion exterior styling which includes a familiar arrow-head shape of the front sill, chrome accentuated prominent front grille, a low front face, stylish front bonnet, a sharply extended body colored front bumper with an aggressive air scoop surrounded by sporty trapezoidal housings for round fog lamps, sharp twin-barrel headlamps, a solid wing face and 15-inch alloy wheels with tubeless radial tires.

New Honda City features body colored ORVMs with integrated turn signals, chromed outside door handles, shark fin antenna at rear, a stylish sunroof, both sides having the strong character lines, rear tail lamps extending into the boot lid and dynamic rear fenders showing a much wider stance. This beautiful sedan has a length of 4440mm, a width of 1695mm and a height of 1495mm as its dimensions along with a large wheelbase of 2600mm for a comfortable and stable ride.


The interior of 2014 new Honda City follows Honda's man maximum machine minimum concept which aims to maximize the space available for passengers while minimizing the space available for machine parts. It has also included a lot of praiseworthy features to turn the driving experience into a dream come true. This includes a high-quality usage of plastics, flat floor, Piano Black finished instrument panel, dashboard with sturdy air vents, a large and high-tech multifunctional 5.0-inch LCD touchscreen with in-built hands-free telephony and air-con controls, one push smart entry system, Honda smart key with proximity sensing, a chunky steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls and mesh finishing on one of the spokes, a leather-clad gear lever and a high dashboard cowl.

New Honda City comes equipped with an 8-speaker sound system with CD, MP3, USB, Aux-in, Bluetooth, iPod, AM/FM radio and a total of four power outlets on front and rear seats, cruise control, a rear view camera with 3 modes which includes wide, normal and top down, a 3-pod instrument panel with digital analogue combination meter having tachometer with gear shift indicator at left, an analogue speedometer at center and a multi-information display featuring a clock, fuel gauge, temperature and cruising range at right with illumination light adjustment dial and an instrumentation display switch above it, HVAC with Automatic Climate Control, adjustable seats, added shoulder, leg and knee space by 40mm, 60mm and 70mm respectively as compared to the previous model, keyless start, power windows and many more features.
