    Default City Vario

    Guys, I am booking a City Vario in the next few weeks. I'm still confused about the transmission. What is the S mode for? Is it the same as Sports Mode found in other cars? And secondly, what is the max speed for the City Vario?

    Thanks,

    i hope u might have taken decission after getting beated in ur GLi from MEHRAN.

    AM I RIGHT?????

    WELL, 'S' MODE IN VARIO ---- DON'T KNOW EXACTLY but it do give extra boom to the engine and neither its the 1st gear becoz i have taken it to 130km/hr.

    as far as topspeed is concerned we have been to 160km/hr in VARIO but heard 170km/hr thats sure for manual one. but don't know why my cousin claimed that he did 170km/hr on vario??????

    well if vario can do 170km/hr then manual shud be doing 180km/hr. but doesn't think so....

    There was a very Good discussion on this vario few months back. City has IDSI, i.e. two plugs per cylinder, in normal d mode plugs fire sequentially, using exteme combustion to conserve fuel. In S mode. plugs fire togather to produce a big bang and increasing pick.

    i meant to say neither "s" is 2nd gear nor "L" is 1st gear as i took L to 130km/hr. its has continuos shifts through which L might be having extreme to 135 and then "S" 145-150 and after all "D" to 160km/hr.

    IN THAILAND CITY IS GOING TO COME IN VTEC!!! TO BE OR NOT TO BE "PAKISTAN HAVE PLANS ABOUT IT". DON'T THINK SO.... THEY WILL KEEP ON ROLLING THEIR EXSISTING MODEL AS OUR KAUM IS HABITUAL TO BRING IN LAST OR U CAN SAY TOP FROM BOTTOM.

    Well Mr. Gli .. i dont want to argue the acceleration of Gli and 2D. But ur funny experience is argueable. U say that u took lead in 1st and 2nd.. may be ... but what abt a 2D coming head to head in 3rd and then losing lead in 4th. If it comes head to head in 3rd then forget that u r going some where in 4th. Also u took ur city to 170kph and he was not able to go more than 150 kph. Thats a big lie. I think most of the ppl on this forum will support me that a 2D has a greater top speed than any 1.3L here. On 2D i have myself touched 179-180 kph. So do another race with 2D and let us know what happens.

    1.3 petrol cars are by far quicker then 2.0 diesel. as for top speeds a 2.0 d peeks at somewhere between 160-170 km/h and all 1.3 cars here do 180 .. i know a 1.3 baleno has a topspeed of 180 ,the old city did 180 ,im sure the new one isnt any less then that.

    nadim81, racers vary. The guy I was racing probably didnt feel like going more than 150, but I did. Secondly, have you ever heard of a perfect shift? It isn't very easy but I came very close to it. Sadly, he had the regualr 2.0D with no tachometer. So he couldnt really know when to shift..the dude only relied on the engine noise. Thridly, he was probably on cloud 9 thinking that he could beat a 1.3L Gli..pride made him lose. Cheers dude....get your facts right first..******** comes later.

    A Tachometer is an instrument used to measure the rotations per minute of a rotating cam shaft. Most sedans here in Pakistan have them; Honda Civic EXi and VTi, Honda City, Corolla Gli/SE Saloon/2.0D SALOON, Lancer, to name some.

    Hi everyone,
    Based on original post regarding difference Between "S" and "D" position in Honda City Vario ,Please refer to following link:-
    http://asia.vtec.net/article/2003City/

    As regards Honda city vtec,it was launched in Malaysia almost a year ago and probably in Thiland as well.Here is a link to its review:-
    http://asia.vtec.net/Reviews/VTECCityPrev/index.html
    I guess Honda Pak should also go ahead with 1.5 litre vtec as they did for 1.5L Honda City Neo in 1997/98.Probably something is expected in Mar/Apr from Honda.Any news from you all.
    Bye
