drove my friends 2010 city on my way back from peshawar on motorway... the car was on AC and cng with 4 ppl... Blv me i had to lift my foot from accelerator to drop my speed below 130... The drive was smooth... An XLi 06 model overtook and gave me hazards... i switched to petrol with AC still on and in no time i was hitting 175km/h and it could go on... the drive was just so good even on that much speed...
though the road in mardan was very bumpy and the drive got pretty slow plus uncomfy!
my analysis of the vehicles is:
Acceleration: New city
Road grip: New city
Braking: New city
Looks: New city
comfort: old city
suspension: old city (way better)
consumption: old city (but with too much lesser power)
Interior quality: old city(way better... new city is plastic)
The only thing I dont like abt new one is that its gadgets are very unreliable... My friend drives his car on CNG and yet the petrol needle drops constantly.. even the reserve light gets on... Thats very irritating!
One more thing i dont like abt new hondas is absence of Heat indicator... When the car gets older u need that badly to keep an eye on the temps!
So ur choice now!
Best of luck!
