» Petrol Engine : Honda in its I-Vtec Petrol Engine (though has marginally less power & torque against Verna VTVT) but the refinement, suspension and quality of ride in Honda city is of top notch making it an ideal pick in Petrol Engine
» Styling & Features : If you seek more styling, with Sunroof, Spacious Interiors, 5 Inch Touchscreen Infotainment, Touch Panel on AC System, Bigger Looks, Comfortable Interiors - Honda City 2014 is all your car to provide top quality features and styling. However City yes lacks a Stylish Alloys as in Verna

» Diesel : Much More Powerful Diesel Engine in Hyundai Fluidic Verna as against Honda City. Hyundai Verna Diesel Engine is used in its segment up Hyundai Elantra too - which is selling like hot cake in Executive Sedan Segment. While Honda City 1.5 Lit I-Dtec Diesel Engine is the same which is there in its junior Amaze.
» Power & Pep : Hyundai Verna Diesel Engine Power, Pep, Pickup is unmatched as against Honda City I-Dtec Diesel Engine. Specs says
Honda City - 1.5 Lit with 98.6 BHP and torque of 200 NM @ 1750 Rpm. While Fluidic Verna 1.6 Lit @ 126 BHP with torque of 259 NM @ 1900 Rpm.

» Safety Specs & Wheels : Hyundai Fluidic Verna has a top end Model in both Petrol and Diesel - which comes with 6 Airbags. While Hyundai Verna and Honda City both comes with 15 Inch Alloys. Hyundai Verna Sx and Sx Option comes with 16 Inch Alloys. Also - Honda City 15 Inch Alloys are not as wide as what is there in Verna. Bigger Tyres though eat up slight fuel economy - but are useful when driving a Sedan of this gesture with more stability to car
» Other Edge - Hyundai Verna has option of Adjustable Rear Seat Headrest as against Honda city which has Integrated Headrest. Also - Verna comes with Cooled Glove Box. Also - a minor facelift model expected in coming days of Verna wherein Daytime Projector Headlights and other slight cosmtic changes can be seen for a USP purpose
Our reco is if its Petrol then it has to be New Honda City 2014. But - if its Diesel - then think twice - Vento and Verna seems a better bet. Engine is like heart of car and it matters a lot in Power, Pep and Performance of the vehicle.
