I bought one from amazon (Keycare silicone key cover Compatible for City) and it is good. Same should match CVT key as well (please check).

Here is a video of the same cover

If you are already smitten by the "SUV" craze, Creta IVT makes most sense. Grand Vitara is low on power and Creta cabin feels more premium than the Grand Vitara.

The only sore point of City is the HU. There's no 2 ways about it. The resolution, display quality all scream mediocre. Connecting to Apple Carplay makes it pretty smooth though.

Finally it might come down to how long are you willing to wait. City will be delivered in 4 weeks max, but Creta IVT has a long waiting period and Grand Vitara's waiting periods have already started.

I agree, instead of Accessories that no one wants, Honda should offer an optional better HU. I'd happily pay 20-25k for that.

I agree City has the least waiting time , I had my whole process of booking till delivery complete within a 15-16 days and the dealer also agreed to a PDI at their stock yard before registration without any issue.

This is how my keys look. The black one's key cover I bought from Amazon and the chain is a gift I got. And for the brown, I bought the key cover and key chain separately and made that combo. I carry the fob in my pocket, so a small form size was important to me; especially that the key chain folds without scratching the key loop. Below are the Amazon links. Note that the Brown one doesn't have the markings for remote engine start and trunk separately.

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

I am planning to book City V CVT, when checked with the dealer he says, they don't offer Dashcam installation as it is not Honda Standard.

Is it true, that it can't be done by dealer, we have to outside?

Also Can you please suggest a proper tyre upgrade for 185/60? or it is not worth to upgrade.

Do consider tyre upgrade and also get a dashcam.

# Order a screen guard online as the HU screen is a finger magnet.

# Braided cable for phone and a microfiber cloth.
The dealer says Honda has stopped the parking sensors, it is almost 2-3 months since they have got it.

Same from my dealer. Something to do with chip shortage.

I've booked a V CVT. I was told by the executive and the floor manager - "We won't install the dashcam and if you get the dashcam installed any which way, it'll void the electric warranty."

And regarding the tyre upgrade, I follow this (Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread) thread.

Dealer won't install Dashcam or any after market accessories.
Plugging the cam in auxiliary port will not void warranty.

I got a DDPAI installed at the dealership on the delivery day. It is a plug and play model but since I wanted the wire from the cam to aux port to be done neatly, I requested the showroom guys and they were happy to help.

However, I doubt they would have agreed if it had to be hardwired. I too felt it was better not to experiment just in case any unforeseen warranty requirement came up and they cite the hardwiring as an excuse/reason to deny it.

An upgrade is strongly recommended for the tires as the NVH level is very bad for a car in this segment. I did not, but will do it as soon as possible after running on the stock ones for some more time. I did a 3M underbody coating from a FNG which made some minor impact on the noise levels but I am sure it won't match the difference caused by the tyre upgrade.
If you scroll through this thread, you will find the major consensus is for the 195/55 size and Michelin suggested by most.

A quick update, I just came back from an official trip to Pune, 350 kms to and fro. The City is performing flawlessly and currently stands at 4300 Kms in less than 3 months,

The Pune expressway has a charm of its own and the City does full justice to the road. I cruised between 75-85 kmph and got a very decent 18.3 kmpl mileage.
