FIRST, the bad news. The new Honda City isn't much to look at. The stubby sedan is ungainly, to say the least, with a design that looks like something someone using a 3D printer at home came up with.

But the good news is that the City is a great drive. It may have only a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine to power the front wheels but the unit is super responsive and, like most Hondas, the car has impeccable handling.

The fourth-generation City has a brand new platform which is based on a modular design that the shorter Jazz and other Honda models will also share.
