Want to buy new car, confused between new Honda city diesel & Verna diesel. My average running is around 3000/km per month in Delhi & on Highway. Honda petrol version is time tested but what about diesel? Is Verna diesel AT advisable? My budget is up to INR 13 lakhs. I checked Toyota Altis Diesel but it is beyond my budget.
I would recommend you to go for the Honda City diesel. This 5 seater sedan is powered by a 1498 cc diesel engine which generates a maximum power of 98.6 Bhp @ 3600 rpm and releases a torque value of 200 Nm @ 1750 rpm. It is mated to 6-speed manual gearbox. It’s fuel tank capacity is 40 litres and carries a kerb weight of 1165 kg. It offers a mileage of 21 kmph in cities and 23 kmpl on highways. Suspensions duties are handled by the McPherson Strut, Coil Spring at the front and Torsion beam axle, Coil Spring at the rear. The price range starts from INR 8.37 to 11 lakh.
Honda City Diesel vs. Maruti Ciaz Diesel
I too was in the same fix ,which to go for ..Verna or City. Finally I zeroed in for VERNA. I own a VERNA 1.6 SX (Petrol) on 29th July, 2014. Its the best in class with loads of safety features.Also one more thing to notice is that u need to pay more (at least 1 lac) to get all those features in city. Also the wheel base of City is less then verna and Ground Clearance of City is lower then Verna in speed breakers it sometimes touches the ground. However in Verna there are no such kind of issues. I had travelled around 8000 KMS in bumpy as well as on highways but till date I have not faced even a single issue. Class apart.
