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

Shouldn't this be called the Sixth Generation Honda City?

Wikipedia says the latest one is the 6th generation. Why are we calling it the 5th?

After that post of yours, I asked my vendor the same. He says that 205 on 6J will be a problem if the car is running with 5 passengers on board, may not be a problem if the car is having only 2 people on board. Have you driven the car with full load and did you find any difference?

It is 205/50/16 Michelin Primacy 4ST tyres on 7J. The height of this tyre looked same as 185/55/16.

Yes i have done 2 highway runs with 4 adults on board and faced no issues at all. I fail to see what logic is being applied by your tyre dealer.

I was told that changing the tyre size (from existing 185 to 195 or 205) would void warranty. Can anyone confirm about this?

Either the Dealer or ASS is unaware or simply afraid. There is actually no rule.
My Dealer had approved it and also Service center takes all the care.
Done almost 18k kms without any issues whatsoever

Yes am also finding hard to believe. Actually the correct and nearest upgrade of 185/55 16'' is 205/50 16" and not 195/55 16''.
Happens to be that 195/55 in 16'' is one of the most popular tires and available across India in various brands.
For me also since I wanted only Michelin Primacy 4ST it was only available in 195 and hence changed it.

205/50/r16 are not available in Continental or Yokohama. 205/55 will be fine with a very minute speedo error.

I had the front right wheel bearing replaced under warranty, no one at Honda service raised the issue of warranty lapse because of 205's on my car.

I discussed this at length with the Service Head, They said they won't be able to cover warranty on Brakes & Suspension.

They offered me a drive on full send to test out the tires on the demo car, Suffice to say the tires are sufficient for drives when your family is onboard and hence dropped the upsize plans for the moment.
Will take another look once I get a better idea of the car and it's components life / maintenance etc, for now my enthusiastic driving would be limited to my sim rig

PS : has anyone got a video or audio for cabin noise after tyre upgrade ?, I would love to see if there's a significant difference in that.

Latest one is 7th Generation. We did not get 1st and 2nd generation in India, so for us latest one is 5th.

Heartiest Congratulations on the new acquisition.

As they say, you can never go wrong with a City. I was in a similar dilemma a few months ago, as I had to cancel my booking of Kia Sonnet due to long lead times and no clear commitment from the dealer. Honda was never into our consideration but with long lead times on every car and our urgency to buy a new car, we happen to walk in to a Honda showroom and test drive the City. We were mighty impressed and wife gave her stamp of approval. The car was readily available, I booked it on the spot and within a week I was driving this White beauty on the roads. Did 2 long trips till now and have never felt so happy driving a car. I get sad not being able to drive the car everyday due to WFH, it's that addictive .

With reference to @GTO's review of the 5th gen Honda City (relevant part quoted below), couple of questions:

1. The doors damping that you got done - does it help with this issue of road-noise-at-high-speeds as well?

2. Is there a way to add after market insulation in the wheel wells? Basically, making up for what's missing from Honda's side.
