Honda has loaded the new City with a number of features, making it one of the most feature-rich cars in its cars. The top-end variant includes full keyless entry, push-button ignition, sunroof, rear-view camera, leather upholstery among others. The company has not compromised on safety either with all variants of the car coming with ABS and EBD. The base two variants get only a driver’s airbag, while the other three variants get dual front airbags.
The USP of this car is the space it offers thanks to a longer wheelbase. It has one of the most spacious cabins in its class and offers pretty good ride quality. Boot space at 510 litres is pretty good as well.
See table below for features of the Honda City across each variant:

Performance and fuel efficiency
The car comes in both petrol and diesel engine choices. The diesel City is powered by the same 1.5 litre iDtec diesel engine that powers the Honda Amaze, but it now sports a six-speed manual transmission for better cruising ability and top-speed. Top speed is now a claimed 190 kmph. The engine puts out 100PS of power and 200 Nm of torque. The petrol City is powered by an improved 1.5 litre iVtec engine that puts out 119PS of power and 145 Nm of torque with a five-speed manual transmission. The automatic variants of the Honda City petrol come with a CVT automatic gearbox with paddle shifters offering 7-preset ratios. This comes in the SV and VX trim levels only.
The diesel City claims to be India’s most fuel efficient diesel car at the moment with an ARAI certified mileage of 26 kmpl, while the petrol City manual offers 17.8 kmpl and the CVT automatic offers 17.9 kmpl.
The car is offered with six colours: Golden Brown Metallic (new colour), Taffeta White, Crystal Black Pearl, Urban Titanium Metallic, Alabaster Silver Metallic, Carnelian Red Pearl.
