    Default Ground clearance of Honda city

    Hi everyone, I got a new city aspire last month. Within a span of 4 weeks, bottom of the car has scratched with speed breakers and high ramps almost around dozen times. It's very annoying. I drove a cultus earlier and never faced the issue. Car is city aspire 2015. Any suggestions or driving precautions please. Regards.

    For me luckily, honda city hasn't scrapped yet on those speed breakers where axio used to scrap.
    When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas, well played.

    My suggestion is change tyre size from 175/65/R15 (Stock Tires of City in Pakistan) with 185/65/R15 (Allowable Size Range for City).
    It shall improve GC. Secondly, If car has passenger on the back; cross the breaker diagonally. It shall help in 90% cases. (PS: For K2 type steep breakers, dost koi hal ni except changing street ....

    Sir I am also awaiting delivery of my aspire 1.3 MT therefore I have three queries.

    1.) does the tyre change void the warranty of the car ?

    2.) if I switch to 185 or 195 will it have drastic changes on fuel economy?

    3.) Are stock tyres OK as I'm living in Karachi and roads are fairly alright. Should I continue with stocks for a while ?? (Advise pls)

    @salmanminhas
    Warranty might get void especially if you get suspension or steering issues and you change tyres from stock to some other size (thickness, sidewall increase or decrease).
    EuroStars are generally harder tyres compared to others (Yokohama, Michelin) and so have less grip and lower rolling resistance. That's why fuel economy is better once using EuroStars.
    For Karachi only use EuroStars should be OK as you won't go beyond 80
    :-)

    1. Yes, Changing tyres shall void warranty of Honda.

    2. At 185/65, Mileage shall go down to by 1-2 km/L but acceleration won't be affected. Pick up of car shall be good. Road grips shall be improved.
    At 195/65, Mileage is quite effected at least 3-4 km/L and acceleration is so less that Mehran can overtake you until you do hard paddling. (195 is majorly required for rough roads like for inter city travels on poorly maintained roads and highways (i.e Interior Sindh and Punjab).

    3. I shall suggest that For Karachi Roads, Stock tires are OK (Not good but OK). It shall help you maintaining the warranty of Honda. Run your Car at these tyres for at least 35K. Then plan your tires change.
    Just one precaution, Honda City has a hard suspension and small tyre width (In Stock). Be very very cautious on big bumps (bole tu Khaddoon pe). The point is; Suspension is rugged enough to bear the bumps but RIMS shall deform permanently. Phir wohi Car balancing ke roley aur 100 KMH so oper ki Car Vibration.

    Just Like "Mehran" said Euro Star (Stock) tyre is harder than Yokohama's, Michelins and have less grips. But sole purpose of Honda City is "Fuel Economy" thats why Tyres are also selected to give more fuel economy than driving pleasure. For driving Pleasure, Michelin Energy Saver, Yokohama Advan DB or Yokohama BlueEarth Tyres are available in Market for 185/65 or 195/65.

    Hope i answer your concern.

    Regards,
    AB

    It has amply answered my queries. Thank you very much. I intend running the stocks for a while. Avoiding potholes and what not. Thanks again.
