Both are powered by a 1.0-litre three-pot turbo petrol and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with MT and AT choices.
In the second half of the table, the fifth generation Honda City finished in the sixth position with 2,300 units against 3,128 units in April 2021 with a YoY sales drop of 26 per cent.
