A practical durable car

2005 Honda City i-DSI Vario

I've driven several used cars with running over 1 lac km. Honda City Vario is one of the best old cars to have due to its durability. Given the price it is now available in market, there is no better alternative in my opinion in this price range.

This is because the alternative to this is Suzuki cars that are not only over priced given their overall package, but once they become old and experience some repair work, they become a nightmare to keep due to regular issues with their engine and parts. Keeping them means regular visits to mechanic. However Honda City of this generation is a strong vehicle that can run perfectly for years.

The other best thing about this car is its fuel average which is comfortably above the alternatives - especially Honda civic 2005 or Toyota models. Even in City traffic, the car will give around 12 km/ltr.

One word of advice though is never to install CNG kit in this car as it will damage the gearbox.

A decent car with odd looks

2005 Honda City i-DSI Vario

Familiarity: I owned this car.
The exterior look is not good. Interior is good and noiseless and the quality is far better than the model available today. Trunk space is huge and much more than any of the local sedans of this category.
Automatic model is sluggish in pickup and feels under powered when climbing a ramp or a bridge. The ride is smooth and comfortable with a soft suspension. The car is smooth on city roads and on highways, however seems to loosen road grip above the speed 130km.
Fuel economy is approximately 9.5 to 10km/l with AC in city drive(for automatic version).
Visibility is poor due to steep hood and broad pillars. One can hardly see any of the car area beyond wind shield. The car has the basic features of a primary luxury model (power windows, central locking, power mirrors) that are missing in corolla XLI version (which is priced more than city). The body is good but prone to rust.
Overall car is good with no technical issues in any of the mechanisms and is a good value for money
