Which is the better buy, the Honda City or the Volkswagen Vento?

I currently drive a Ford Fiesta Classic, and I’m looking to buy a new petrol saloon. Which one is better overall – the Honda City S or Volkswagen Vento petrol Comfortline?

AAA
We prefer the Honda City to the Vento petrol for several reasons. Firstly, the City is more responsive to drive, feels lighter and is fuel efficient too. The Vento is also a capable car, but it’s not as effortless to drive as the City. However, the main reason you should stay away from the Vento petrol is because of its very poor residual value. The City, in comparison, will get you more at the time of resale.
