As much as I love my City ZX, I wish Honda had focused on the HR-V. The C-segment sedan market is nosediving, for the lack of better words. Compact SUVs offer more urban/semi urban practicality, tech features, butch looks (which are all the rage amongst masses) and simlar or better performance levels. The new City looks nice and has some interesting features, but none that will sway a potential buyer from a Seltos or a Creta. If anything, it continues to be under tyred and offers the same levels of performance (albeit with a newer engine design).
