From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Honda City

The Honda City still continues to be the benchmark in its category when it comes to impeccable in cabin space and comfort. The rear cabin of the Honda City continues to offer best in class legroom and knee room, with sufficient under-thigh support and headroom, making it one of the most comfortable cabins in entry-level sedan category. 

Despite being almost ten years old in terms of basic engineering, the 1.5-litre petrol engine of the Honda City continues to be one of the most refined and rev-happy engines to be ever made in the entry-level space. The engine has got remarkable levels of refinement and revs happily without feeling sluggish in the entire rev range.

The current generation Honda City has been blessed with all the top-class comfort and convenience features which are usually associated with sedans of one segment above it. The list of features includes electric sunroof, full LED headlamps, leather upholstery, curtain airbags, and push-button start-stop system, which not only uplift the in-cabin ambience of the Honda City but also justify its premium tag too.

Hyundai Accent

Compared to the previous generation Hyundai Accent which was gradually beginning to show its age after all these years, the new Accent sports some serious alterations to its exterior design. The all-new design has the same fluidic design silhouette as its predecessor, however, it now looks much sharper and contemporary than ever before.

The new Hyundai Accent now comes with increased levels of fit and finish, which do go well with the revised interior design. Even from the inside as well, the car feels plusher and richer compared to the model it has replaced.

The Hyundai Accent is being offered with a petrol and a diesel engine, however, it is the latter which feels much punchier to drive. In fact, the performance outputs of the 1.6-litre engine in the Accent makes it the most powerful car in its segment.

Honda City

While the arrow shot design complements the aerodynamic profile of the Honda City, the overall silhouette of the car along with the basic design has started to show its age. The overall basic design is in existence for almost half a decade without much bigger changes. While the inclusion of features like LED headlamps and machined alloy wheels did try to uplift the design of the car, the Honda City’s side profile and front and rear design remained more or less unchanged in all these years.

Despite the presence of many feel-good features, the overall dashboard design of the Honda City now feels too sober and dated in front of the cabins of other sedans in its space. Some of the switches in the cabin too need an upgrade in terms of quality.

Hyundai Accent

Hyundai has made the new Accent feel rich in terms of fit and finish, however, the lack of a number of modern comfort and convenience features do make the new Accent feel a bit dated. The absence of primary features like a touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, push-button start and many more still does not create a strong impression in its favour.

While the new Accent feels engaging to drive with decent driving dynamics and powerful engines, the rear seat cabin of the new Accent falls short on space and comfort. The shoulder room is at a premium, due to which seating for three passengers at the rear is quite a squeeze.

While the light steering setup is a boon in urban driving conditions, the same setup at higher speeds too makes driving a bit less exciting. The steering does weigh a bit more at higher speeds, but not enough from a driving enthusiast’s point of view.
