Is there a better city car from Honda’s City sedan? Well, it depends on what you need. However, on one can say that the 2018 Honda City isn’t a good choice either, especially when you take into account that the carmaker introduced made a few thoughtful changes for this year.
2018 Honda City: Exterior and Interior Changes
The light sedan got a number of cosmetic changes on its exterior, so now looks significantly better from the predecessor. The manufacturer added a fresh face which includes a redesigned grille and updated headlights with incorporated LED daytime-running lights. Plus, the front bumper is re-tweaked as well. The car is additionally embellished with better-looking alloys and new rear bumpers. Honda decided to add an exterior paint and we have to say that Cosmic Blue Metallic fits perfectly to the 2018 Honda City. On the other hand, the existing Brilliant Sport Blue Metallic and Crystal Black Pearlescent have been discontinued.
Inside, the 2018 City sports a new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, as well as a bit restyled dashboard with new trims on the gear shift, instrument panel, and air vents. The topping VTi-L model also gets the upgraded infotainment with satellite navigation and leather-coated seats. The sedan doesn’t provide class-leading space, but it’s at the very top. Moreover, you will fell pleasantly whether you sit in the front or in the back.
The Japanese car manufacturer hasn’t touched anything under the hood, so the 2018 Honda City comes with a usual 1.5-liter petrol four. The engine is paired with both manual and CVT transmission. However, no matter which one you choose, it will send power to the front wheels only. Speaking of power, the unit will provide around 119 ps. Sedan’s fuel economy is 5.9 L/100 km, which makes it pretty cheap for driving.

However, you have to have $15,990 for the base VTi (manual) model. In case you want the VTi (automatic), you will have to set out $17,990, while the topping VTi-L (automatic) costs $21,590.
