The front end looks more upmarket with a generous use of chrome and a flat-sided bumper. Headlights are also sharp and premium.
Side profile will remind you of the outgoing model, though the boot is stubbier given that the overall length has not changed but the wheelbase has grown by 50mm.
Rear also looks more premium on the fourth generation City, with taillights now extending into the tailgate. The rear bumper is also less heavy looking and provides a sportier stance.
The fourth generation City tends to look visually bigger than its last model, especially in the flesh, but width and length are actually unchanged. The City is now available in diesel too though with the same 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine as the Amaze.
Interiors remain premium from a segment comparison perspective. Though the color palette hasn't changed much but the materials seem plusher.
A smart dashboard and new instruments give the appearance of a car one segment higher. Although the steering looks similar, it now houses Bluetooth phone controls too.
Rear legroom is obviously enhanced and this is where the longer wheelbase shows up. The rear seat is angled better now, which offers a sense of greater space and headroom. The roof height is also enhanced by 10mm.
The fourth generation City now comes with a start-stop button, doing away with key ignition. Well finished, the use of red implies sportier performance.
Rear AC vents and two charge points add to the feature list on the new City, making this more attractive for those who prefer to be chauffeured.
A shark fin roof antenna replaces the traditional aerial, giving the car a high-end look.
A generous boot-space that will hold its own in this class. Exact volume figures are still not available from Honda though.
The new touch screen music system doesn't have the smartest interface but is functional and now offers USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
