The Topmost variant is the diesel manual priced at Rs 14,64,900. This is just Rs 20,000 more to the Petrol Automatic Ar Rs 14,44,900. According to us having an automatic in the topmost variant makes it a great deal to pic. Also, the price of the Automatic is justified only if it delivers the claimed fuel efficiency.
In terms of connectivity, all of them are equal with the difference of speakers on the lowest variant. 5th-Gen Honda City Variants have provided a great choice for the customers and this might be a strong competition to the Hyundai Verna.
