    God knows what car you drove mate, it has a hard suspension so that it can grip well. The vehicle has a hard ride, correct, stability it has lots of, try maneuvering it at over 100km/h and you shall get the answer.
    Blind spots are present in all new cars, you would know if you play with them. And for the love of God man, let your addiction with the temperature gauge go

    specially mehran... no way.. mehran say to gadha gari achi hay (Sarcasm)

    Comfort wise i found it way more comfortable than cultus (i own one). features are pretty good as well. cant say why are you comparing this with Mehran.

    If you think hard suspension give better grip than discussion is already over (rip pre 2000 Honda that double wishbone was never needed)
    About temp guauge you don't consider it important?

    me too, have used 3 honda cities reguarly in past year(none was mine and one was auto), manual can be driven smoother than auto, stability needs bigger rims and better tyres like any PKDM car and when you get to drive it reguarly, you can maneuver it easily like a cultus(talking about experience in tight parking spots where the boot of city feels like it doesn't exist.)

    comfort, well seats are better than my khyber(bigger n more foam) but when one is in hurry and takes potholes with some speed khyber still absorbs all the bumps better.

    for a general user temp lights are enough, for a petrol head, can always install an obd display.

    Stiffer suspension on a family sedan does improve handling, ask whosoever you wanna ask. As for the temperature gauge, the companies removed them for a reason. Yes they are important when driving a Suzuki, or old cars, but with new cars it isn't necessary, my pajero is a 1999 model, last year I serviced its radiator for the very first time, in 200k, things are more durable then before so kindly let that go
