Car Profiles - Honda City

HONDA CITY

While the previous generation City is a good car, the newer one exceeds the standards. Kitted to a brim including items reserved for cars priced at a million pesos region, all retaining the space and making the return of the CVT for the second time. No more 1.3 engine but who's complaining?

The Good: More space than before, innovative as ever, raises the bar in safety, entry models are same priced with yesteryear's with almost better specs.
The Bad: TOTL model's prices may be justified but still high for a subcompact, no more 1.3 engine and rear disc brakes.

Price Range: P770,000-P1,010,000
Our Rating: ****
