And we are back with yet another video review. This time around, our resident host and car reviewer Hassan Chatha is taking all you lovely folks along with him on a ride of the current generation Honda City.
The fifth generation Honda City 2015 Pakistan was launched back in 2009. Current Honda City although is a refreshed version of the original and comes with few upgrades, including new front chrome grille and updated rear brake lights, along with few minor changes. Honda, to differentiate its customers, launched two different cars. Whereas Toyota is fine with selling cars that look the same but has a price difference of almost a million rupees in the lower most and upper most variants. And a lot of Corolla buyers don’t appreciate it. Their argument is, if we are spending this much money on a brand new top of the line Corolla, at least make our cars look different. But Honda is fine with the division among its customers; two different cars, for two different segments of buyers.
Honda City 1.3l comes with manual or auto transmission. In higher Aspire variant of Honda City, the 1.5l engine is also available, with few other upgrades. City considering it falls under ‘compact sedan’ category has nice rear leg room, and does not feel as cramped as one would imagine. The boot capacity is largest among its competition. Honda City doesn’t come with either airbags or immobilizer. In Aspire variant, you get top of the line multimedia navigation system, whereas in 1.3l City, you will only get a normal CD player with 2 speakers.
As you would expect from a Honda, the ride is a little bumpy and stiff, but the plus point is improved handling. This is true for both City and Civic. Car is also equipped with ABS, However, City is strictly an urban car. Try not to go off roading in this one. Maybe rent out a Corolla XLi if you are planning to visit your village, instead of taking your shiny new Honda City.
We hope you will like our effort, and we hope to hear from you guys, in the comments section below.
