Gifting a car at a young age to the parents is the dream of many Indian children. With the active social media, we have seen quite a few instances where cars were gifted by the children to their parents. Here is one more instance where a young son gifts a Honda City to his parents.
The video shows the son taking delivery of the top-end Honda City from a showroom by himself. After performing religious ceremonies on the Honda City, he then takes the car to his parents who were kept waiting at a public park. He then brings the parents to the Honda City and hands over the keys to his dad. It turned out to be an emotional moment for the whole family following which the father took a test drive of the vehicle. It has always been the dream of the child to gift a luxury car to his parents and he says on the camera how his dream has come true and how anyone can realise their dream if they work hard for it.
Honda City is one the most trustable vehicles in the segment since its introduction in the Indian car market more than 20 years ago. The exact variant of the vehicle is not known but it seems like the top-end version of the petrol model that also gets a sunroof. The vehicle retails at around Rs. 12.1 lakhs, ex-showroom, Delhi. The City has remained one the best-sellers in the segment and has remained on the top of the sales table for a lot of time.
The Honda City is available in both petrol and diesel engine options in the Indian market. The petrol version is powered by a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 117 Bhp and 145 Nm. It gets either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic transmission. The diesel engine was introduced with the current generation of the Honda City.
The EarthDreams 1.5-litre engine of the City generates a maximum of 99 Bhp and 200 Nm. It is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Honda City petrol is known for its extremely smooth operation. Honda’s brand value makes it one of the first choices of many.
The Honda City takes on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Vento in the segment. The Honda City gets a heavily loaded infotainment system with navigation but the system is yet to offer the Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The City also gets leather seats, cruise control, full LED headlamp system, LED DRLs, adjustable steering, 6-airbags, diamond cut alloy wheels and a sunroof with the top-end version.
The next-generation Honda City is under development, and the car will arrive into India sometime in 2020. Honda is likely to add a mild hybrid system to the all-new City. The car is expected to be larger than the current version, and also more feature-packed. It remains to be seen if a diesel engine is offered with the new City considering tightening emission norms.
