Hyundai really provides something for everything. Honda City fifth generation is also not far behind with the absence of Diesel AT.  If you are on a strict budget Skoda Rapid Rider or Rapid Rider Plus is the best bet.  Customers should, however, note that both new and old generation Honda City will be on sale across dealerships.

Skoda Rapid and Toyota Yaris both do not have Android Auto and Apple Car Play, a must-have novelty feature for now.  Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Skoda Rapid all have the same size touchscreen.  The new-generation Honda City is the first car in India with Amazon Alexa.  In terms of instrument cluster, the Hyundai Verna stands apart from the competition. There are many features available on Honda City’s analogue display as well and give Hyundai a run for its money.  More about Honda City Rivals India below.
