Petrol

The fifth-generation Honda City also gets the new-generation i-VTEC petrol engine. The petrol engine now dominates this space, almost after a decade, and most carmakers have discontinued the diesel engine options that were previously on offer. The competition though is vast with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris, Skoda Rapid and the Volkswagen Vento. There's also the fourth-generation City that will be sold alongside the new one, with the older version of the i-VTEC motor. The Verna, Rapid and Vento get 1.0-litre turbo petrol options, while the rest of the cars are offered with naturally-aspirated mills.

The Hyundai Verna facelift is the new Honda City's closest rivals in terms of equipment and price

The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz remains the most affordable offering in this class priced between ₹ 8.32 lakh and ₹ 9.98 lakh, which makes it one of the most attractively priced models in this space. The new City range starts at ₹ 10.89 lakh for the V trim, which is about ₹ 90,000 more expensive than the range-topping Ciaz Alpha. Do note, that the 2020 City is pretty loaded right from the base trim and comes with connected tech and four airbags as standard.

Meanwhile, the Volkswagen Vento, Skoda Rapid, Toyota Yaris and the old-gen City all get sub ₹ 10 lakh pricing that is intended to make the model more attractive for customers. The Rapid though is the most affordable sedan here and also the most affordable turbo petrol on sale in India with the Rider trim priced at ₹ 7.45 lakh. In the top-trims, the Rapid and Vento are over ₹ 1 lakh cheaper than the City but also pack less equipment in comparison. The Hyundai Verna offers the best value, nearly ₹ 55,000 cheaper than the Honda; whereas the Toyota Yaris would be the ideal Japanese alternative priced at ₹ 12.90 lakh, which is about 25,000 more affordable.

Automatic

The compact sedan is dominated by petrol offerings and almost all the cars get an automatic option. For now, the Skoda Rapid and the Volkswagen Vento do not get the option of a petrol automatic, but we do know that the variants will be added to the sedans in the future. The new City has competition from the Ciaz, Verna and the Yaris. The new-generation City gets a CVT unit across all three variants priced from ₹ 12.20 lakh for the V, going up to ₹ 14.45 lakh for the VX. It's also the most expensive automatic line-up on sale. The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz petrol automatic range starts with the mid-level Delta trim priced at ₹ 9.98 lakh, going up to ₹ 11.10 lakh.

The Toyota Yaris gets up to six automatic variants, the most in the segment

The Hyundai Verna automatic line-up starts at ₹ 11.95 lakh for the 1.5 IVT SX model, while the range-topping 1.0 DCT SX (O) will set you back by nearly ₹ 14 lakh. The Toyota Yaris gets more affordable options as well and has more automatic variants on sale than the manual. The range starts at ₹ 9.56 lakh for the J (O), and goes up to ₹ 14.30 lakh for the range-topping VX. Comparing the top trims, the new City and the Yaris are identical in pricing, while the Verna seems value for money and is about ₹ 45,000 then the Honda cheaper for the DCT model. The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is still your best bet for an affordable automatic sedan with all the bells and whistles.

The shift to petrol is evident at how the segment is now placed. Only the new-generation Honda City and the Hyundai Verna facelift get the option of an oil burner.

Meanwhile, the Hyundai Verna diesel starts with the more affordable S+ trim priced at ₹ 10.65 lakh, going up to ₹ 13.95 lakh for the SX (O). The Verna is the only model here to get a diesel automatic, which is closely priced to the new Honda City's petrol CVT variants.
