well m really very dissappointed !! i never xpected some thing this worse from Honda really and pls forget tht m corolla fan for a second ! i was really xcited this morning , the first thing i did in morning opened the Jang newspaper to check and confirm its launch , there was nothing in ppr ....then at around 3 o clock called honda defence to confirm then went there very xcited !!
khair long depressing story ...choro
here are my views !!
Front looks good 8/10
Back also looks sportier and good 8/10
Side looks, simply sux 4/10
Interior the most horrible interior at present 5/10
trunk space good 9/10
well now in some details !
Front looks good really good better than previous city , and offcourse back is also good as compared to previous one ! from side the car isnt impressive at all ! Interior is really very cheap ! cheap quality materials used , the doors from inside looks like suzukiz doors and the ac ducts also look like altos and lianas ! interior not beautiful or appealing at all not a single thing in interior is impressive ! AND NO REAR SEAT CENTRE ARMREST ..... i was dissapointed to see no arm rest attached to driver seat or atleast centre armrest as in civic or corolla ! i had in my mind tht in new city the rear seat armrest always try to fly i mean in the pics i saw it was in air and was not touching the seat so tried to check it , but was shocked ke arm rest hi nahi hai :@
really the rear seats look like altos seats , and tht pathetic black plastic coming behind the shoulder near rear seatbelt really looks bad ...... leg room was okay not very good like ppl were saying ! the glove box touches the knee ! gear knob was also tiny horrible thing ...uffff !!! and above all THE SAME POOR VISIBILITY PROBLEM From drivers seat or from passengers seat u cant c the hood !
ven i opened the bonnet the first thing wch irritated me was the shiny marble floor :@ they shud have atleast covered it from beneath , imagine how badly the poor conditions of our roads mud , rain water etc etc will take care of i-vtec engine !! hmm... talkin abt i.vtec engine ... yup thts 1 of 3 or 4 things i liked abt the car .. its a powerful 1300cc car ! The second thing i liked was the push open fuel lid ..3rd thing better road clearance than civic ... 4th trunk space ! and mirror controls given on arm rest like new civic bas thts it ...
No space for fog lamps ... .....ven i asked the guy abt fog lights he said sir usay chorein hum ne car tow kernay ke liye bumper mein hooks diye hein .... u ppl can c those two cap sort of things under both head lights.... and lolx @ ven my father asked are these openings for light washers ....lolx ... he said no no car tow kernay ke liye ...hahahahaha pehlay se hi gaddi khinch wanay ki tayyari hai ...lol
No red or maroon colour
and now , ven three of them came and asked u liked the car sir !
to the first one i was still thinking how to react for such an over priced actual crappy piece of shit ,, he said aisay chehray na banye sir ! aap civic chalatay hein is liye itni achi nahi lag rahi likin Xli , Gli se compare kerein boht achi hai ! i dont noe how can they say tht its better than Gli ....in my opinion not better than Xli even !
khair doosra banda asked , and i told him all the points wch i discussed already !
third walay ko chor hi do doston ! lolx ..
khair over all its a big disappointment !
and now ven it comes down to comparison , i will even buy Xli any day instead of this new city still it has a big decent elegant shape much much better interior in every aspect its better xcept the 85 hp engine !
still m very depressed the higher price and horrible interior really spoiled the car otha wise its good from outside
i ll be posting a few pics widin 10-15 mins ...
