As seen in the table above, the 2020 Honda City is bigger than the 2020 Hyundai Verna. In fact, it's the biggest sedan in its segment. It should offer excellent road presence, although the 2020 Hyundai Verna's design is still the sportiest in its segment.

The South Korean sedan is available with five different engine-transmission combinations, while the Japanese sedan will be launched in three such options. Customers looking for a diesel automatic sedan in this segment have only one option right now, and that's the new Hyundai Verna. The all-new Honda City will likely get a diesel automatic option at a later stage, with the aforementioned 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engine and a CVT.

The 2020 Honda City will come with the most powerful petrol engine in the segment, while the 2020 Hyundai Verna will continue being the model with the most powerful diesel engine for the foreseeable future. The latter is a relatively better choice for fuel economy overall.
