Overview

When it comes to giving a premium experience in entry-level category, there are very few cars which provide finesse levels as good as the Honda City. It is the City with which Honda has tried to make sure that it churns up volumes without compromising on its core values of providing quality. For the Philippines, Honda is offering the City in three different variants – E, VX and VX+, each of which comes with a CVT transmission as standard, with the base E variant having an option of a 5-speed manual gearbox as well. The color options available for the Honda City are Lunar Silver Metallic, Gold Brown Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Ruby Red Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl and Tafetta White.

Interior & Features

Like the exteriors, the overall interiors of the Honda City too are a tweaked version of that of the previous iteration, with the presence of a couple of more features to make it feel upmarket. However, the basic layout of the interiors has begun to show its age, which might not appeal to everyone.

The Honda City gets a three spoke steering wheel, which comes with a generous use of silver finish towards the lower portions of the spokes. The three-pod instrument console looks simple and very easy to read while on the go, with the blue backlit theme, chrome surrounds for all the three pods and the full TFT third pod for the MID making it look quite appealing.

Like in all the Hondas, the center console here in the City too is slightly tilted towards the driver and has an asymmetric layout to it. Thanks to a substantial use of silver and piano black finish, the center console feels rich and premium. The 7-inch touchscreen unit for infotainment system covers up the basics of the audio system as well navigation system. But the highlight of this entire interior cabin is the full touch sensitive panel for climate control, which not only looks nice, but also provides a modern factor to the otherwise clinical looking dashboard.

Apart from the aforementioned ones, the top-spec City VX+ comes loaded with features like rear AC vents, push button start with keyless entry, cruise control, 8-speakers, 60:40 rear fold down seats, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, electrically foldable and adjustable rear view mirrors. Though, it still misses out on some more features which are offered in other markets, which includes the likes of an electric sunroof and LED lighting inside the cabin.

Exterior

For an entry-level sedan, the Honda City looks quite stylish, for its profile exhibiting a nice aerodynamic stance. The original silhouette might not have seen a big change in all these years, however, in its current avatar, it is the presence of some nice features which make the overall design withstand the tide of time.

The frontal stance of the Honda City is dominated by a thick single slat chrome grille, which gets a sleeker honeycomb grille positioned below it. The original shape of the angular headlamps is exactly the same as seen on its previous iteration, however, this time, they are full LED units. Adding some more bling factor to the front is the presence of LED fog lamps.

The side profile remains as streamlined as ever, with a thick prominent crease running on the upper as well as the lower portion of the side doors. The biggest highlight here which makes the car look premium is the presence of 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. It is the rear of the Honda City which is the least dramatic and has a fuss-free design. With the presence of swept back tail lamps joined by a thin strip of chrome, the City looks quite elegant.

All in all, the overall design of the Honda City still looks sophisticated and sporty at the same time. However, it would be nice, if Honda tweaks the overall layout of the dashboard a bit more.

Ride & Handling

The Honda City has been fitted with McPherson strut with coil spring at the front and torsion beam axle with coil spring and anti-roll bars at the rear. The overall suspension setup does sound basic given the product positioning, however, this suspension setup has been tuned for a very fine balance between pure riding comfort or driving dynamics. The 16-inch wheels have enhanced the overall driving dynamics, even though by a small margin. In terms of cabin space, the Honda City offers quite a good amount of legroom and under thigh support, which is easily the best in this category.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Following the tradition of Honda of offering incredibly refined and rev-happy petrol engines, the Honda City is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol motor, which pumps out a maximum power output of 120 PS and a peak torque output of 145 Nm. Standard to all the three variants is a simple CVT transmission mated to the engine, but unlike in other major markets, it misses out on paddle shifters for the transmission. The base E variant also comes with an option of a 5-speed manual gearbox with precise shifts and short throws.

Braking & Safety

Like the list of comfort and convenience features, the Honda City is fairly equipped in terms of safety features as well. The car comes fitted with front, side and curtain airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist, Hill Start Assist, emergency stop signal and ISOFIX mounts for child seats.

Verdict

For its price, the Honda City provides all the virtues and qualities of its more premium cars but in a smaller-in-comparison package. With a streamlined design and list of impressive features, the Honda City doesn’t feel dated, even after the fact that the basic design is almost half a decade old now. And when it comes to the combination of performance, comfort and ride quality, the overall packaging of Honda City is still a tough task for its competitors to beat.

    One benchmark hard to change

    I have always been a keen fan of Honda’s I-VTEC engines, and the decision of going for the tried and tested Honda City was a no brainer for me. I do belong to the hardcore fan base of Honda City which has built up gradually in all these years, however, if I were not, still I would have said that Read More

    Smooth and comfortable

    After living with the Honda City for more than a year now, the car has been a great all-rounder. The butter smooth i-VTEC engine is the best part for me. I think it's ahead of the competition in refinement and free-revving nature. The interiors are also pleasant, my only issue is the AC touch control panel, it is difficult to Read More
