The question that's been bugging me is whether Honda City has a rev limiter for such situations or did I damage my engine by doing this?
The red marking on the tachometer starts at 6800 RPM whereas rev limiter kicks in slightly above 7000 rpm. And it kicks in super violently. The recent owners can throw some light whether rev limiter is still jerky or Honda has improved it.

Does the City pose a lot of problems for tall people? In terms of getting in and out / seat comfort, etc? I'm 6 feet myself and am not sure if during long drives comfort becomes an issue...?

You should be comfortable in all the seats. There is no complaints on headspace in City.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Got the 40k service done today, took a little longer to reach the 40k milestone as the suv's got replaced and now the MUx is doing part time daily driver duties. Cost of the service came to 8642/- jobs carried out
Engine oil change - synthetic 2.0
Engine oil filter change
Air filter change
Cvt transmission oil changed
I dont get the wheel balancing and alignment Done by Honda A.s.s, reached the workshop @ 0900 hrs and was done by 1100 hrs.

Decided to pamper the car so got the boys to do the interiors and the exterior thoroughly, and i have to admit i so love this car, you keep glancing back at it when you park and move away. Sharing a few pics on what i use to pamper the car , as well as a few pics of how well the interior is holding up at 40k i used to spend about 4 hours a day in the car commuting 120kms daily.

Now with the fortuner coming hopefully by next month the beloved honda will be parked and used occasionally,where the behemoths won't be able to go.

Could you plz check your bill for engine oil quantity billed vs actual capacity?

Yes. I'm 6"3 and when I first sat for a test drive.. the first thing that I subconsciously noticed was that the roof was just above my head with little or no space left.. this was after being reasonably comfortable with the driving position. I had to then adjust it further to get better clearance.. but it was still not great for me. The thought of my head being so close to the structure was another reason I dropped the city from my list

Iím 6 feet myself, and I drive with the seat at the lowest position. At the lowest position, thereís no issue with the headroom, and it is very comfortable.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Hello everyone,

I am a new member at Team-BHP and I owe it to this thread for helping me decide to go for the 5th Gen Honda City (over City 4G and Verna) which I got in my garage last week. Have driven it 170 km so far and the initial experience has been amazing. I got the base V manual petrol variant in the new Meteoroid Grey color which looks so good under all lighting conditions (black, grey with a hint of blue at times). The only thing which I felt could have been better and has been mentioned in the reviews is the fact that it has 185 section tires whose lack of grip was evident. I also felt that when shifting to 2nd gear under 1500 rpm, the power delivery didn't feel instant when I compare it to my earlier ride, a 2012 Hyundai Verna 1.6 ltr manual Petrol. Although I don't usually shift before 1500 rpm but just trying to be careful to not rev it higher than 2000 rpm in the run-in period.

I plan to upgrade tires after 3-4 yrs to 195 section ones and probably also upgrade to 16-inch alloys simultaneously, which I hope is something that is safe considering that the base model comes with smaller 15-inch wheels. Waiting to complete the first month and the 1000 km mark before sharing my car buying journey and initial ownership review. Thanks to all of you once again for helping me choose my first self-owned car. Feel free to share anything which I should keep in mind as an owner of Honda City 5G in its foundational months.

Excellent Fuel-Effficiency

I did a 600 kms drive this week. It was more than 95% on 4-lane highways (NH-38). The FE was 19.9 kmpl over 417 kms

I did try to nudge it to a round 20.0 kmpl in the last part by being very careful in my throttle-inputs and braking but ran out of the 4-lane road!

Most of the time the cruise-control was set at 85 kmph. The outside temperature in the early morning was 25 deg and in the evening climbed to 35 deg. The aircon was excellent.

I wish I could have 'hypermiled' with tricks such as following close to trucks/bus to slipstream which could have boosted my FE greatly. But then my passenger (my better-half) started complaining that 85 kmph was too slow! So it was a 'normal' drive which gave me this excellent FE of 19.9 kmpl.

And considering the Petrol prices, it makes me smile!

Thanks for this post. I did a similar drive today and my car returned an impressive 27.7 KMPL mileage. This is Cityís sibling Jazz in its diesel avatar.

Last month, I did a Pune-Goa-Pune in my 5th Gen City CVT. It returned a mileage of 19.3kmpl on the Pune-Goa stretch. On the return leg, I got 18.3kmpl with spirited driving (consistently above 100kmph). The car had 4 adults and boot about 75% full. AC was ON 100% of the entire journey.

My father owns a Jazz Diesel. On a recent Pune-Nashik-Pune trip, the car returned 29kmpl. He and my brother started at 6AM, so traffic was sparse and he is a sedate driver - not going beyond 80kmph. Honda iDTEC is very frugal and powerful but not as refined as Hyundai's CRDi. The NVH difference is evident. That's my only grudge. But considering our highway usage, we ain't complaining!

It is always a pleasure to read your reports on the car Manim sir. 19 kmpl for a fairly large car is a great no and that too a petrol with AT. Speaks volumes of Honda's engineering.

Happy to see your happiness in achieving these things Manim.

Amazing to see (with your earlier Civic too if I am not mistaken) on such trips you donít find it irritating and a nuisance to drive at these speeds and having to keep a watch on the fuel efficiency figures or trying to increase them. You must be having the patience of a monk to do these things I feel boredom just by reading it

No offence friend, itís different strokes for different folks and itís your car, your style. Just my point of view.

Cheers
