Chevrolet Optra and New Honda City
New Honda City with airbags and ABS soon
I like the cheeky ad - Not Honda, Not Toyota..
Ad or not, the new Chevrolet Optra 1.6 seems to be marginally
better than the recently launched new Honda City.
course, almost everyone liked the Optra 1.8. Big and roomy, and
stylish too. But the new Optra does one better. Being priced
almost half a lakh better than the new Honda City, it has
invited heated comparisons on which is more car for your money.
On the minus side, the new Chevrolet Optra 1.6 is less
powerful than its sibling, is marignally costlier, and many do
not like the front grille - even with a Chevrolet badge on it.
On the minus side for the new Honda City, it is not as much a
driver's car as the old City was, looks are space-age-ish for
Maybe we should all hold on. I found something interesting on
the Net - the Chevrolet Optra sold in Canada has a different
appearance grille-wise than the one we have here. Who knows,
maybe there will be a newer Optra tomorrow with the new looks?
Take a look at the photo and tell
me what you think of these looks.
