Tell you why:

1. The OHC is a high-powered gokart. Its light, chuckable and is all about driver feel & feedback.

2. OHC Vtec = 108 BHP / ton (power to weight ratio). Even with 10 more horses, the ANHCs P2W is 105 BHP / ton.

3. The OHC Vtec is built to live at 7,100 rpm. Not so with the ANHC.

4. In Y2000, the OHC Vtec did the 0 - 100 in under 10 seconds. The ANHC can't beat that, even 10 years later.

The OHC is light, that's what aids its performance & feel. However, the heavier ANHC is infinitely safer & stable.

But GTO all things said, the Anhc is already showing up on road in good numbers. Not that I am a Honda fan but still here in our city Ludhiana I can see a lot many of them cars,and their designs have this knack of growing on you kind of thing. I agree the interiors of this car dissapoint, but the exterior finish and design is quite modern and futuristic.

Intersting to know that power to weight ratio in ANHC still cant match the OHC. Modern day safety norms make cars heavier.
In my opinion the electronic power steering on ANHC also takes away some 'fun to drive' factor.

Of course it will! Thanks to the ANHCs all-rounded nature & typical Honda reliability / durability, the ANHC is amongst the best buys < 10 lakh rupees.

Thumbs up Re: EDIT: Now Launched :All New Honda city (Indian version)-full specs & features .

Just visited a Honda showroom yesterday, they have started customized painting for new cars, basically you choose a design and they will paint it similarly, quite cool.

Don't know the exact costs but when I enquired with them, they said the costs depend on the design you choose. But still I love the fact that the buyer has such an option, I personally always wanted to get a custom pain-job done.
