Honda showroom experience made me rethink my City hybrid booking

My mind is now stuck between the City Hybrid & the Tata Nexon EV Max.

BHPian gauravdgr8 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Did a test drive of the City Hybrid on Thursday.

Before commenting on the car, few observations about the showroom and current conditions:

Coming to the car

Misses:

  • Electric seat height adjust
  • Front parking sensors for a car in the 20Lacs price range
  • Ventilated seats
  • Boot opening with feet sensor
  • Small boot can take in 2 medium size bags and a couple of laptop bags

What’s Good:

  • Super super silent car
  • The interiors, door pads and armrest are of good quality and do not feel cheap
  • Host of ADAS features Auto Braking, Lane change mitigation are very usable in the city
  • The demo car showed a mileage of 26.2/litre
  • I am 5’7 and used to having the seat upright and pushed back, with seat height up. In that seating position, the rear passenger had quite a lot of space to spread their feet
  • Boost mode: seriously crazy. The wheel spin is mind-boggling and the car literally takes off
  • The camera on the left ORVM came up automatically when taking a tight left turn with a wall on its side, similar to the reverse came with grid lines

The brochure says that the city has ADAS level 3, which means it’s way ahead of XUV 700 and the Astor which use levels 1 and 2, respectively

Now the mind is stuck between the City Hybrid and Nexon EV max.

My wife has recently got a job as the Head of Primary school in a prominent Residential school in the hills of South India, and the family would be moving in there, therefore am not sure how would I charge the car if I go for the Nexon EV, if there is no charging plug in the parking area. I would have to rely on the local charging points, which does not make it a viable option. On the other hand, this sort of show stopper doesn’t exist in the City.

Will wait till July and decide.
