Why The Honda City Is The Perfect City Car
Why the Honda City is the Perfect City Car
While some shoppers continue to flock for compact SUVs, others are looking for something that will offer an easier experience manoeuvring around city streets without compromising personal space. Honda City is the answer. Below, we take a look at some key features.
Engine and Handling
Both versions of the Honda City are powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that makes 88kW and 145Nm, driving the front wheels through a five-speed manual transmission in the standard VTi and a CVT auto in the upgraded VTi-S. You can also pay extra for auto transmission on the standard VTi. Both are very economical when it comes to fuel efficiency, offering a 5.7L/100km average with an auto transmission. The manual uses another 0.1L/100km. With an electric power assisted steering system and a high tensile steel body with a low centre of gravity, the Honda City handles beautifully, allowing you to navigate tight city corners and car parks with ease.
The Honda City is equipped with all the latest technologies, with the following features available on all versions: ● A huge 546L boot (just 20L shy of the CR-V ) ● 7-inch touchscreen interface with USB and HDMI sockets ● Remote keyless entry ● Multi-angle reversing camera with wide, top-down and normal views ● Hill start assist system ● Six airbags including curtain airbags ● Power sockets for back seat passengers to plug in or charge devices ● Steering wheel controls for the audio system, Bluetooth connected phone and cruise control ● Air conditioning, cruise control, power-adjusted exterior mirrors, LED daytime running lights ● Multi-information display for drivers, showing average fuel consumption, range to empty, speed alarm and outside temperature An upgrade to a VTi-S will get you 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control, paddle shifters and a push button start.
Comfort and Safety
The impressive trick offered by the Honda City is how well organised the interior is to maximise space and comfort in a sleek and compact vehicle. Seating is comfortable and ergonomic, and the suspension is good at dealing with city speed humps, ensuring a relaxing journey every time. Every Honda City has all the crucial safety features such as vehicle stability assist, emergency stop signals, whiplash mitigating front seats, anti-lock brakes and comprehensive reversing cameras, which is why it has a five-star safety rating.
