TheHonda city has been around for two decades, and the 5th generation is now hitting the roads. It has been the most favourite sedan of the people and gained many fans and appreciation throughout the time, holding its head high. City reached the markets in July 2020, powered by a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine.

The new vehicle gets a twin-cam setup ensuring better control over valve functionality. Credit cannot be denied to Honda city for setting the market trend, but currently, competition is high. Now people have other options of cars. These competitors offer some features the Honda city doesn’t, let’s take a look at them.


Honda offered a diesel CVT with the amaze, which received a decent reaction from the people, but the city still misses out on a dieselAT variant. The Hyundai Verna is the only one offering a diesel AT in the segment. This mistake is being made by a lot of automakers.

To keep the prices affordable, companies are only providing manual transmission with their diesel cars. It’s not in vain to offer added convenience of an automatic transmission. Therefore, the Honda city can launch this feature if needed.

BrakesAnd Glove Box

Safety has become one of the most important parameters in car buying decisions of people recently. People have started asking questions about the brakes, safety ratings and others to the car manufacturers. Honda city comes only with front disc brakes but missed out on the rear ones.

Sedans like the Hyundai Verna have disc brakes on both the front and rear. Cooled glovebox is also not included with the new generation Honda city. Temperature gets quite high is some parts of the world and the features becomes a lot helpful then.


Honda city is one of the most famous sedans sold. The mid-premium sedan segment has been ruled by the city since beginning. It has greatly improved from the previous years. However, it has still missed some of the features mentioned above.

This leads to tough competition like Hyundai Verna, Skoda rapid, maruti ciaz and Toyota Yaris which have only risen their standards higher. It’s better if the automakers make an effort of spending extra money to add these convenient features to Honda city. This will ensure it performs at its peak with little competition from other vehicles.
