As per Autocar India, the top variant ZX of the City commands the highest waiting period of close to 3 months at most dealerships. The ZX variant of the City is priced at Rs 13.57 lakh (diesel) ex-showroom (Delhi), but that has not deterred customer opting for the top-of-the-line variant.
The significant aspect of the City ZX is that it receives a full-LED package which includes automatic LED headlights, fog lamps, DRLs and LED taillights.
The ZX variant also features gets rain-sensing wipers, a boot lid spoiler and larger wheels. Additionally, it gets six airbags, while the other variants come with dual airbags at the front.
While the lower or the base variants of the Honda City commands a waiting period of close to 3 weeks or maybe lesser depending upon dealer inventory, the mid-variant VX - which also receives LED headlamps, electric sunroof and bigger wheels - has almost no waiting period.
Mechanically, the facelifted Honda City continues to be powered by the same 1.5-litre petrol or the diesel of the outgoing model.
Honda offers the CVT and manual gearbox for the City, although the CVT is restricted to the petrol model only.
The company claims fuel efficiency of 17.4km/l for the manual gearbox and 18km/l with the CVT gearbox of the petrol model. The diesel model offers fuel efficiency of 25.6km/l.
The 2017 Honda City rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento, and the Skoda Rapid as well as the upcoming new Hyundai Verna.
