How important are rear AC vents in a car in a city like Delhi

I am a newbie driver planning to buy my first car. I like the Honda Amaze CVT but it does not come with rear AC vents.

Hi Folks,

I am looking to buy my first car for under 13 lakh, automatic. I like the Amaze VX CVT but it does not come with rear AC vents. How important is this feature considering I am living in Delhi? What are some of the must-have features that I need to consider while making a decision? I am a newbie driver.

Here’s what BHPian Mr.Boss had to say about the matter:

Importance depends on your use case. If the rear passenger’s comfort is your priority, obviously it’s important. On the technical front, cars with a rear blower or AC vents tend to cool the cabin faster by 20%.

Common considerations (without any segment bias):

  • Rear wiper & defogger
  • Park Assist (mandatory feature in every car now)
  • Fog lamp
  • TPMS
  • Seat height adjustment

Here’s what BHPian Gupts007 had to say about the matter:

Well, it is always better to have rear AC vents than not have them. Having said that it can be even ignored if the general air conditioning of the car is outstanding.

For eg. in the new Baleno, the AC is pathetic therefore the rear AC vents become even more important. In the 2nd generation Swift, the aircon is outstanding making the rear AC vents forgivable.

Considering the fact that you are in Delhi, you are better off having a car with rear AC vents since it gets so hot during the summer. Please have a read on threads about the general AC performance of the Amaze to make a decision.
