Arrow My All New Honda City S (AT) - Crystal Black Pearl !!

The 'what car' confusion was going on in my home for nearly 5 months. I did a test drive of almost all the cars (and of course some of the car salesmen are angry with me now). Finally I settled on the All New Honda City S.

Initially we did not go for this car because we already own a Honda City ZX. I really wanted to buy VW Jetta Comfortline... but since I wouldn't travel much and did not need a diesel engine and also wanted a car below the 15 lac point, we opted for this beauty.

The car came to 12.1 lacs. The high cost is because of the 1.25 lac worth accessories and Auto transmission engine.

When I was on my way to the showroom, I did not expect something so much beautiful. The alloy wheels really took my breath away! Some of the notable accessories are the front grille, side protector, exhaust finisher, alloy wheels, chrome border for windows and trunk spoiler.

I now feel the car is better looking than Civic. From the front, I would say it as a little brother of Accord.

As of now, the average mileage is 13.7 (as shown by the car's instrument panel - Yeah! This car shows the mileage too... Watch the video!).

I will give an update on 5000kms!

I have also created a video which you can watch here with high quality - http://www.viddler.com/explore/ultramark/videos/1/

Nice car, the small changes over the normal City make this look so much better.

12L seems to be a bit overpriced, but if you're happy with it then whos complaining.

Congrats on the new car. Enjoy, drive it like a VTEC's meant to be driven!

KF Congrats ! This calls for a KF treat . Welcome to the club. 12 lacs does seem steep. But as long as this beauty puts a smile on your face, why bother!
But i dont agree with you that its better looking than Civic. Civic will be Civic anyday. Anyways your car looks stunning after the mods. Congrats drive safe!

1.25laks for a already overpriced car. i do not believe you spent 60k on those rims itself. how much was the grille? and the steering cover is looking ugly, get rid of it asap. in bombay it costs around 10.5 and comp. reg comes for around 11.5 i am still in 2 minds.
