    It's a no brainer unless you're so mindful of fuel expense. The Civic FD 1.8L is more comfortable, rides and handles better, and with just a kilometer or two per liter difference in FC over the 1.5L City.

    Let's say, we translate it to Toyota vehicles. Will you choose the previous gen Vios or the previous gen Altis?

    Owned a city 05 before with paddle shifter and it's fun to drive but my '10 civic 1.8S have much more to offer in most aspects.
    The only downside of the civic against its little sister i guess is its stiffer ride. Maintenance wise the civic is a tad higher given she's bigger (more oil, bigger tires, etc)

    Civic FD is a joy to drive. I'm actually waiting for the 2010 refresh (one with square LED tail lights) to cheapen so I can get one, perhaps a manual. The power is there, the steering is precise. It's more economical if you drive long distances (like most "big engined" cars. 1.8 isn't particularly big but if you compare it to subcompacts with 1.0cc, it is.

    City, a subcompact, is a nice city dweller. On long roads, it runs out of breath after 110kmh. It takes so long to speed up after that. Nothing happens until after 4000rpm where it starts moving. Torque comes in much later. Electronics are medieval. I'm used to automated cars that shuts everything off when you press lock. I happen to leave a 5 day old City's headlights on and 30mins later after a quick lunch, it won't start. The darn thing doesn't automatically manage electrical power. I was shocked to learn that the battery is a motorcycle spec size. It's literally just for starting the car. LOL. You get what you pay for I guess. Honda might have fixed this issue with the new City but I haven't tried the new one yet. Still, better than a friend's latest Ford fiesta which keeps going back to the repair shop because of transmission issues.

    Both cars are ok. But if I were to get either, it's definitely the Civic.

    Still undecided? Go for the 1.5v Mazda 3. That way you get a fun car with good FC.

    If you just want a daily people hauler with lots of gadgets, the City VX will be fine. The new City VX is almost the same in interior space as some compacts. However, it cannot compare to the power and handling of the Civic FB (despite losing its sportiness over the previous Civic FD). The Civic FB is light for its size (lighter than most compacts) thus offering better power-to-weight ratio.
