2020 Honda City RS Review: City Heat [w/Video]

7. Conclusion and Video Review

There’s little doubt that the City moves the compact sedan segment to places it’s never been before, and in CarBuyer’s experience it’s very clearly a segment leader: One that can deliver a superb experience when compared to its competitors and even when compared to cars a segment up. Yet that’s also its problem, with a pricetag close to the latter.

With COE prices on the up, compact sedans and hatches will be the first to decline so if you really like the idea of a City, it’s best to move in right now.
