Well.. Depends on what you want from a car ? If its soft touch something, automatic something else (read lights, wipers) then u might as well look for a high end electronic gadget... But If you still like driving then try the Europeans...

Agreed with your point regarding features though. I couldn't figure out many interior features in additions to the ones I currently have on my Punto hatchback. City is loaded when compared, however - the VW does cover the basics.

As a package- I would prefer the VW over the City.

That is a very biased generalisation. Drive a Mitsubishi, a Subaru, Nissan Maxima, Altima or for that matter anything from the infinity range, the Type R Civic & a host of other models (not even considering any of the super cars from Nippon) and the whole thing flips over on it's head. Not all Japanese are boxes taking one from point A to B and not all Europeans are driver's cars.

Agree sir. I wish we could buy a Subaru, Nissan Maxima, Altima or for that matter anything from the infinity range, the Type R Civic in India, except for Mitsubishi which apparently is struggling due to its partnership with HM & looks like it may shut shop soon none of the other cars you mentioned are even available here

My comment was strictly for cars available in India & specific to VW Vento Auto v/s Honda City Auto in this thread. Its intent was not be a "very biased generalisation"
