The leader in the premium three-box segment, the City is the car the Vento has in its sights.
Honda's best-seller manages an average of almost 4,000 units a month.
While there's always the Honda brand image that works in the City's favour, the car also has many things going for it.
The radical lines of the car make it look as if it's come from tomorrow, while the effervescent 116 bhp 1.5-litre motor loves to sing at the upper reaches of the tachometer - while still managing 10 kmpl in lousy urban driving conditions.
The insides of the City also make you feel special, while there is ample legroom for those who still shy away from sampling that gem of an i-VTEC engine.
The one sore point of the City is its suspension set-up, which doesn't treat rear passengers too well.
Oh, and it's not exactly value for money.
