Honda City's engine has an original design and three valves per cylinder: one exhaust and two intake valves.

Body and exterior


The front end of the Honda body is fully bolted together, making possible repairs much easier. The car pleasantly amazes with corrosion resistance of both the body metal itself and the paintwork. Even ten-year-old Honda City has no traces of rust.

The front seats of the car provide a comfortable seating position and confident steering, and are notable for their low weight. This is perhaps the Japanese concern's basic approach to car design: achieving goals and results through intelligent design with minimal materials.

The car is considerably larger inside than it looks from the outside and from the photos. The Honda City is equipped with a short engine compartment, due to which the designers were able to create a spacious interior.

However, Honda designers managed to achieve this only due to the dense layout of the engine compartment, which quite logically causes certain difficulties during maintenance of the car and its repair.

On the inside of mudguard, under a fender, the engine and washer tank are located, and the access to them is closed by factory plastic protection. You can't get to the alternator without removing the front bumper, and you'll need a spark plug wrench to unscrew the plugs. In short, on the Honda City the convenience of repair is sacrificed for the comfort and dimensions of a city car.


Engine


Honda City's engine has an original design and three valves per cylinder: one exhaust and two intake valves. The carburettor has two dozen air hoses connected to electric valve blocks, with five or six of these connected to the air filter housing. The disadvantage of this design is that it cannot be adjusted properly. Both float chambers have a separate sight glass with level markings, which is very convenient. Idle speed and mixture quality are regulated with separate screws.
