Honda’s third iteration is stunning compared to the first and second generation models. The 2019 model is based on civic, but the car is more than a civic with a hybrid powertrain. We call it a Swiss army knife of the car because it’s all rounded sedan that offers advantages beyond value and good fuel economy.
What distinguishes Honda 2019 from others?
Powerful and efficient powertrain

This Honda City car packaging is exceptionally impressive. Riders pack their commodities comfortably without eating the interior space of the car. The car is designed in a way that its battery pack and small 10.6-gallon fuel to tank are beneath rear seats; this allows the trunk to maintain civic sedan’s cargo capacity of 14.7 to 15.2 cubic feet as well as the ability to fold the rear seats. On the other hand, the back seat is spacious, and the civic’s provides more room for legs compared to Prius and loniq.
