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

Dear Members , I am also fascinated by the performance of Honda city Petrol. It is best of sedan with excellent mix of great power, mileage, low maintenance.
I am in process of upgrading it to New Honda City and getting a good offer on left out 2022 models as I was told that there is no difference with respect to 2023 model except VIN number series.
I am in dilemma whether to wait for upcoming Honda City which will come with ADAS , Ventilated seats and other upgrades. It is expected to be price rise of 80k to 1 lac. With current offers on 2022 in range of 1.20 lacs , the expected difference is going to be 2lacs approx for upcoming CITY over 2022 models.

You need to add manually how many litres fuel you have filled.

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

Recently TD the 5th Gen city petrol manual. Astonished how electronics are going backward in capabilities and features. For example the infotainment system in the car looks pathetic and looks like it was manufactured 10 years back and left to rot in a godown until Honda decided to use them for their 5th gen City. When I shifted to reverse I was even more shocked at the quality of the rear view camera. It was grainy and basically unusable to the point of not justifying their presence. I hope the new facelift city gets a proper infotainment update.

We must condemn these manufacturers for giving us sub-par quality features for a very high price.

Agree, Infotainment and base model speakers are so bad that I stopped listening music in the car. Reverse camera has one advantage though, you will be extra vigilant

I own 5th gen V petrol manual, ~ 1.5 years old, and ~ 8000 km on the odo. Following are the -ve points of this car

- Average Infotainment & reverse cam
- Average paint quality (lots of hairline scratches from road side bushes)
- Cabin noise during acceleration (got adjusted with it)
- Sheet metal and plastic trims (especially front grille area) are very delicate.

Everything else is perfect. Proper fill it, shut it, forget it kind of car. Here are couple of pictures I clicked.

I have a 10 month old ZX MT white and have crossed 7000 in 10 months with trips to bangalore and gujarat, the only grouse i have is the poor quality of rear camera. The music system on ZX is decent and when music played via amazon music the sound quality very decent.

I love the IVTEC petrol power in manual and infotainment is one area which i overlooked to get that IVTEC and Honda's reliability.

The car is a looker in white especially with the ZX alloys.

Last week in madenning Mumbai traffic a mini goods carrier bumped my rear and my heart skipped a beat or two, but on inspection i could find even a scratch on the paint. may be i was lucky OR the goods carrier did not bump hard enough

Update on an year of owning this reliable beauty

My car completed an year and hence the 3rd free service was carried out. Set me back by INR 3160/- only The charges were for Synthetic Oil, Oil Filter and Washer Plug. It was a shocker for me as I have been used to upwards of INR 12K annual maintenance bills from my previous ownership of Polo.

The negatives from an year of ownership:
  1. Stray pebbles (the larger ones) will dent the paint (my car is wrapped in PPF and yet!)
  2. Display quality of reverse and left-turn camera feed is poor and feels frustrating during afternoon when sun is shining directly on the display unit.
  3. The cabin insulation can be better - road noises do seep in!
  4. Although it's better to err on the side of caution, the TPMS reported false positives twice which led to slight delays in travel time to get the report checked out.
The things that I still enjoy:
  1. taking the car for a ride, any ride short or long.
  2. Paddle shifters - for that quick downshift while going over a ghat or attempting an overtake - in both the "S" mode as well as the "D" mode.
  3. Truly key-less entry and exit - I am spoilt to the core by this feature, so much so that I don't even bother to take out the key from my office bag.
  4. Feeling of a premium sedan with an appreciable ride quality.
During this one year, the car was driven about 6400 KMs, across a variety of road conditions and I can re-affirm that I am glad to have put my money on this purchase. Cheers!!

Hello replyakhil - I would suggest you to go for 2022 model of City with discount of Rs.1.20 lacs (I have heard it is now 1.35 lacs atleast in NCR). You will only miss ventilated seat (Pune weather is fantastic so you may not even miss this) and ADAS is like sunroof (you will use it once a year or so may be). If you factor currently available discount and feature addition in 2023 City, I think price difference will be 3-5 lacs depend on models.

I drive a 5th Gen City ZX CVT bought in Oct 2021 at 16.85L OTR. As of today the same variant retails for approx. 18.2L OTR in Pune. If you factor in the discounts that are being offered, then you may end up with the same OTR that I bought (assuming you are opting for ZX CVT). Then that's a good buy. But if you end up spending 18L+ to buy a 2023 model then I might as well wait and spend additional 1L for the added features. IMO, they do add value and a better ownership experience in the long run. And who knows Honda might fix the 1857 era rear view camera resolution in 2023!!

The Honda SAs generally have a good idea about on road prices for upcoming models. What is the ORP from the 2022 city in Pune currently ? I think waiting for an upgraded 2023 model would definitely be my take. In the bargain if I get ventilated seats and ADAS (with upgarded infotainment and camera....wishful thinking) that's IMHO worth the extra 2 lacs.

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

Hi Folks, I own a 5th Gen City ZX, petrol & manual. There's a strange problem that is recurring - whenever I switch on the AC, it throws out a very bad smelling blast of air which is a mix of damp & car perfume combined. This normalizes after a min or so (or may be I get used to it). It's very unsettling though. Asked Service center guys to look into this, but they didn't help. I use 3M nomad mats - could it be because the mats retain moisture? or will AC filter changing help? Could someone help if they have encountered the same problem? or have a solution that worked?

This usually happens if it has been humid and someone has been smoking in the car. The AC evaporator get bogged with dust and grime and the humidity causes it to form a layer of muck on the pipes.

You should immediately change the AC filter and then run the Heater at full temperature and full blower speed for about 5 minutes. Alternate the air flown between fresh and recirculation mode while theb heater ir running. It should resolve the issue. It the smell persists then you will need to get the dashboard opened and get the AC evaporator cleaned. A good AC shop should be able to do it.
