New Honda City vs Civic Comparison
Honda has just launched the new City a few days back and it has been one of its eagerly awaited models. The new City is the fifth generation model being launched here and features extensive changes while making this car a more premium offering. However that also brings to a question whether you should go for the new Honda City now or pay more and get the Civic. We compare Honda City vs Civic in this article here.
Honda City vs Civic dimensions
The new City is being termed by Honda as the largest car and that means it is longer compared to old City. However compared to the Civic, the new City is still shorter by 107mm compared to Civic plus Civic is wider than City by 51mm. Even the wheelbase of Civic is longer by 100mm. However the new City has the bigger boot by 76 litres over Civic. The City also has more height over Civic by 56mm.
Honda City vs Civic features and interior
Both the new Civic and City get the beige and black dual tone cabin. Both have a wood finish on the dash but the Civic has the all back dashboard while the lower half of the dash of City is covered in dual-tone beige. The Civic interior is the sportier one with the steering wheel or the driving position while the new City has a fancier instrument cluster along with newer and better steering controls plus plusher air con controls In terms of space the Civic due to lower roofline makes getting in and out more difficult. The new City has a more spacious cabin and with better headroom while the Civic has marginally better shoulder-room.
In terms of features both cars are very well equipped. The new City and Civic get a lot of features. Both get the basics like a touch-screen infotainment system plus sunroof and rear air-con vents. Both also get the lane-watch system while the new City gets part digital dials with more info and of course it is a connected car with Alexa remote built-in.

The City petrol has a 1.5l engine with 121 bhp and 145Nm. The Civic diesel also has a larger 1.6 diesel with 120 bhp and 300Nm while the City diesel has a 1.5l unit with 100 bhp and 200Nm.

Honda City vs Civic price
Prices for the Honda Civic start at Rs 17.9 lakh for the petrol CVT to Rs 22.3 lakh for the diesel top-end. In comparison the City starts at Rs 10.9 lakh and goes till Rs 14.7 lakh. Spec to spec the City top-end CVT petrol and Civic base CVT petrol has Rs 3.4 lakh difference. The diesel versions have a massive Rs 7 lakh plus difference. The City in our opinion provides much more value with nearly as much space and even more features plus a more spacious interior over Civic. The Civic remains a better looking car and a bigger car while the added performance is the main reason to pay more, however still, the new City makes more sense to us here as the one to buy.
