The eagerly awaited Honda City diesel launch is just around the corner. So far we’ve brought you all the information you would need on the car including a comprehensive road test. If you have missed our City diesel coverage so far, click on the links given below.
However, the one question that remains to be answered is how the City will do against the segment best seller − the Hyundai Verna diesel. While we can only give you the definitive answer when we put both cars together, here’s a head to head spec comparison between the cars.
From the spec sheet and our experience, it’s safe to say that while the Verna might give you the option of more power, the Honda offers adequate performance and fantastic fuel efficiency. The ARAI figures suggest that this is one of the most efficient cars that you can buy. The City also has the trump card of being larger and more spacious than the Hyundai. It also has better high speed manners. While the final verdict is some time away, let us know what you think based on the pure specs in the comments below.
