Honda is known for its practical and reliable cars in the country. The Japanese automaker introduced the City facelift in February and also launched its first sub-4m crossover, the WRV recently. As the number of options increase, it is easy for an interested Honda customer to get confused between the Jazz, WR-V and the City. Even though the segments are different, the three cars have a lot in common and their prices also overlap. Let's try to figure out which Honda suits you the most.
Prices of petrol variants (Ex-showroom, Delhi)
Firstly let's get some facts clear. If you are looking for a Honda with an automatic transmission, the WR-V doesn't offer one. You’ll have to choose between the Jazz and the City. Although the Jazz offers CVT transmission with the petrol versions of the E and S variants, the top-end VX variant misses it. However, if you want a fully loaded automatic Honda and don't mind reaching deep into your pockets, you are in luck as the top-end ZX petrol variant of the City is only being offered with an automatic transmission.
You might also be aware that the new WR-V comes with a sunroof; and if this feature is on top of your list, book the WR-V right away. Not only is the WR-V the most affordable car in the Indian market to feature a sunroof, it is also the only car under Rs 10 lakh to have it.
If we talk about the drivetrain, the three cars share the same 1.5-litre diesel engine which produces 100PS of power and 200Nm of torque, and is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. However, if you want the car with the highest fuel efficiency, pick the Jazz since it has a mileage of 27.3kmpl – the highest among the three.
Coming to the petrol engine, while the Jazz and the WR-V are powered by the same 1.2-litre iVTEC engine that churns out 90PS of power and 110Nm of torque, the City has a 1.5-litre iVTEC engine. If you want the most powerful Honda among the three, go for the City as its engine churns out 119PS of power and 145Nm of torque.
