No. The City and the Accord use next generation A/T boxes which have this feature.

@ M4ugr8, thanks, planning for alloys and tyre upgrade soon.

@ aaggoswami, not exactly light foot, but I try not go above 5.5 rpm!. It does 100 kmph @ 2k rpm in 5th, and 140 @ 3K, 160 @ less than 5k as can be seen in the pic.

@gemi , thanks buddy.

My city which is a 2009 reg model has a covering or a protection under the engine bay.
According to the dealers the covering was put on all 2009 production models.
Just wanted to verify with other new city owners if they have the covering.

I checked my car and it does have the cover as well.
By the way, I think the red ANHC looks very stunning.

@netarchie: You ccertainly have a knack to click some nice pictures. What your car needs is a set of nice alloys to go with the car. You can also put a nice high security no. plate which would look really cool than the one you have currently

Thanks oss.
I have done the interiors with stanely nappa leather recently. Will post pics soon and look forward to the comments.
Meanwhile an update on the Fuel consumption, I am getting an FE of little over 10 with some spirited driving.
The engine is a hoot to drive and I have fallen in love with the beauty.

The fusion is suddenly not getting enough attention and gets driven only in the weekends!!
In the city, I have managed an FE of 11.2, which is the best till yet, , with speeds not exceeding 80Km/Hr.

Planning a highway trip soon in the car, will check the FE and report and more pics as well.
