As HR said, Last Monday we had a meet at mogappair with his City.
HR gave his City to me to drive. we gone for some long distance and enjoyed driving his City. Even we tested the breaks of City
, It was really a nice experience.
Here is my review about City with the comparison of Manza Exterior:
As we all Know City is like an arrow, which is ready to get out from the bow anytime. City is the sexiest car which is Excellent and Elegent. Manza:
As we all know, Manza's front portion and boot portion is not in sync. It looks odd at some angles and good at some angles. It is just ok for Vista kind of Hatchback, for a Manza type car sedan car, the front needs to be big and it has to match to rear portion of the car. Manza's front is good and rear is also good. But, both front and rear is not matching. Lets go to Interior:
Here I've lot of points to cover. Steering:
City's Steering design is modern and trendy,
Manza's steering looks good, but trendy like City Seating Position: City:
seating position was wonderful and gives wonderful road view
Seating position is equal to City Dials and Back lit in powerwindow: City:
City has orange light in the dials and there was not back lit on powerwindow buttons except auto roll window(Driver side) Manza:
Manza dials have white light in the background. which looks so beautiful in the night. Also had backlit in all the power windows, which helps to operate in night time Headlights:
City's stock headlights are below average, needs upgrade to 90/100 bulbs. Manza:
Manza's Stock headlights are very good enough to cover the whole road. Even Low beam itself enough to drive on Highways. when both low beam and high beam works together, nothing will miss from our sight. Music player:
Stock headunit and stock speakers producing excellent quality of sound. I like the way where USB and AUX cable connection area. But, As like HR said, changing the folder to select songs are the headache. we can't see the folder name. But, we can see the folder number which is useless. Manza:
Stock headunit produces excellent sound quality. But,the stock speakers produce average sound quality. But, in Manza, changing the folders and selecting the songs are very very easy and more convenient.
Even Manza have Bluetooth with Integrated Music System, which is not available in City. Storage space:
As like HR mentioned, Storage space is very low in City, even there were no door pockets on the rear. even glow box is very small when compare to Manza. Doesn't having tray under co-driver seat. Due to Petrol tank under front seats, we cannot keep water bottles under driver/co-driver seat. Manza:
having more space when compare to City. Huge glove box with light. secret tray under co-driver seat. All the door having small pockets. Easy accommodate some 4 number of 2 liter water bottle under driver seat. Door Lock: City:
HR is badly missing auto lock of all the doors which is available in Manza. After he mentioned that only, I thought to think about that. Even in my Vista also I've auto door lock. whenever I move the car from stationary all the doors will lock automatically when I touch 10kmph. Till today, I never tried to locking the door. As city doesn't have this feature, HR needs to lock the door manually that is one of the major feature which is missing in City.
Door locking position is somewhat odd. which is inversely proportional to the universal method. For lock we need to pull out the lock liver. for unlock we need to push the lock liver. which makes confusion most of the time. Manza:
Auto door lock at 10kmph, lock and unlock is normal like all other cars. Seats:
Excellent rear seats and front seats. But due to the petrol tank under the front seats, we cannot stretch the leg fully from rear seat and can't keep the foot below the front seat by sitting in front seat. Manza:
Is I need to say anything? we can keep our leg in whatever position we like from any seats. Now regarding Performance: City:
I just WOW when we talk about performance of City, it just takes off from any gear, I experienced it. even in the higher gears also, we can maintain low speed without any jerk. Manza:
Manza has to wait till the turbo kicks, once Turbo kicks it pull like anything. Here in Manza, we need to maintain the speed according to the gear. Otherwise it will start jerking. Torque: City:
City's Torque is very less, we can feel the linear acceleration. But, when it comes to sudden acceleration, I-Vtec kicks in and takes off the car to highspeed easily. Manza:
Manza have very good low end torque, so that we can feel the pulling in each and every gear. Suspension: City:
City's suspension is soft on Pot-holes and highway patches. Manza:
Same like City. Breaks: City:
I felt the breaks are hard in city in slow speed and confirmed the same with HR. So, we tried to check for sudden break. During sudden break I got proper response from breaks. but, still break shoes has to be checked. Manza:
Proper feedback in low speed as well as in Highspeed. Conclusion:
If I gone to Honda City without experiencing Manza, I would have said, City is best. But, after experiencing Manza/Vista, I can't say like that
City is classy, Driver friendly and beautiful car with less features.
Manza is comfortable, spacious and loaded with mandatory as well as Top class features.
Moreover City Stands with Honda Badge, Manza Stands with TATA badge. This is the major difference between the both.
