Hello Ankur, Welcome to TAI
It is pretty tough to choose between Verna and the City. They both have their own set of positives and negatives. It all depends upon which qualities you care about.
I own a Verna VTVT SX and I have absolutely no regrets. I had to choose between Verna and City and I listened to my heart and not to my head - in the end I am happy.
For a comparison:
Exterior: My personal opinion - Verna looks stunning. City is not bad either.
Interior: Verna is way ahead of city
Seating comfort: Front - Equal comfort. Rear - City wins
Engine: ivtec - proven good. VTVT - yet to prove good
Ride & Handling: My opinion - Verna is nowhere bad as projected in most reviews - unless you drive at above 140 kmph most of the time. For that matter City is not a good handler either. VFM
- Definetely Verna.
Safety - Since you are opting for SX there is nothing much between the two. Verna with front and back discs hold an upper hand.
Mileage - More or less equal.
On a lighter note - I can show off to people who own City that I can close my car's side mirrors without sticking my hand out / or answer calls with a press of a button on my steering / or engage reverse gear and do not turn and see through the rear windshield / or just set the temp on the auto climate control and do not worry about increasing or decreasing the fan speed.
Jokes apart I personally liked the soft nature of Verna and opted for it. Test drive both the cars and take a call. At the end of the day you need to be satisfied with the 10L that you spend
