the City 1.3 you guys are talking about has actually and officialy a 1.2L iDS-I Engine developed for greater Fuel-Economy ONLY!
iT's not built for dragging or any of the stuff you would want your car to do..! The Engine is just purely a people carrier...
One cannot compare a DOHC M13A with L12A2; The comparision ain't right.
Think before you call your car a """SPORTS""" car; These vehicles are built and designed for Economy not for Speed. This case is specially true for 1.2L City iDSI.
In terms of Performance ... there are less things that can beat Honda DOHC Blocks... comparing them would be a fair deal But since there are Non-on-offer here in PK, Honda's image ain't of a Boy racer.. But an elderly guy passing through his mid-life crisis.. hehhehe.... We here have FUEL Efficient Hondas not Race oriented!
