VW Vento / SKODA Rapid - The petrol engine gets a conventional 6-speed automatic gearbox while the Diesel gets a 7-speed DSG* dual-clutch automatic that can be manually controlled via the triptonic gear lever (no paddle shifters available). 

Honda City has automatic in Petrol only.

So without a doubt, DSG is a better option - But it is for diesels only. SKODA Rapid just received a fresh update and personally that looks awesome. So for diesel automatic I would bet for Rapid DSG as of now.

For petrol - City has paddle shifters which makes driving much more fun and exciting. So I would put money on City for petrol automatic

Go for City CVT as it is best suitable for the city drive with the ease of automatic transmission and technologically a better option than VW/Skoda Petrol automatics. VW/Skoda do not offer DSG in Vento/Rapid pertrol and instead they have conventional auto box which are matted to 6 speed gears whereas DSG is 7 speed.

So go for City if you have petrol in the head.

DSG is anyday better. With 7 speed box, even better. But what Honda provides are paddle shifters which makes the drive engaging.
I give credit to Honda City for engine and Vento for DSG. City CVT with Paddle shifters makes for an no-nonsense buy BUT Vento DSG is value for money and an enthusiast buy.
Keep Vento DSG as option 1 and test drive both cars.

Better to buy Honda City than the Volkswagen Vento. There are enough horror stories about Volkswagen in India.

I would suggest that you also look at the Maruti Ciaz. Maruti has good spare parts availability, there are good year end discounts of up-to a lakh or more on the Ciaz and it is real value for money. Only problem is that the engine is not so powerful. Avoid Hyundai Verna - I bought it and for 17 days they have not made spare parts available.

Ciaz CVT is rather value for money option and will cost a lot less. You will definitely have a peace of mind in terms of repairs and running cost. No one can beat Suzuki in terms of running cost and repairs. BUT I would suggest to wait for Ciaz Facelift (Mid 2018) and then buy the AT version if you are considering Ciaz.

Hi Ranjeet, Honda city cvt makes more sense because of higher power, much more cabin space, higher features, trustworthy CVT gearbox, better mileage and better resale value. Just recently compared both for one of my close friends. B/R
