    Default Mitsubishi Galant Vs Honda Accord CL7 Vs ?

    Guys, here's a question. You have a budget of 16 lac, and you have following options:

    Brand new:

    Honda Civic
    Mitsubishi Galant

    2nd Hand:

    Toyota Mark2
    Honda CL7 or may be CL9 (not sure)
    others (?)

    Honda civic vti oriel is good but does not have leather seats (if that makes a difference). It's also Pakistani assembled, and my experience has been that there are always a few problems here n there. My 2005 vti prosmetic, started to heat up recently (don't know why, even though it's fully maintained!), just gotta get it checked.

    Mitsubishi Galant, has leather seats, is 2.5 L, brand new from factory but has an older shape which Mitsubishi is still selling in Pakistan. It's steering looks just like Lancer which is a big turn off (because i've been driving lancer for a year now).

    Honda accord CL7 has audio controls on steering, 2.0 L engine but may be driven 20,000 km. Also there may be concerns with car tempering etc. However, you may get TV/Nav, back camera which is cool

    Toyota Mark 2, I dont like the shape, it looks too unclish.

    Suzuki Vitara XL-7 is also in the same price range, by the way, however, it's a different category and not sure if we can compare it with others. It has a 2.7 L Petrol engine, and has a pretty good interior.

    So between CL7, Galant and Civic. Probably Civic has the best resale. CL7 has the best options, and Galant as the best engine performance (2.5 L). Civic also has the best fuel consumption probably. The type S in galant also has AYC (Active Yaw Control) same as Evo. Shape-wise I think CL7 is the best.

    So what do the PW experts think?

    PS: I had almost made up my mind for Mark-X but had to reduce the budget. I also think CL9 would be hard to get in 1.6, so that;s out of question too.

    I would go for brand new cars and form which Mitsubishi Galant would be my preference. It is more roomy & comfortable than civic though it's engine technology is little older than civic.

    i'd too suggest a brand new galant, if u dont plan to sell it off soon.It's got bad resale tho.
    otherise buy a CL7, its got a better resale than galant. Plus, it's got more options.
    I wont suggest u buy a civic, spending so much on a locally assembled, small size sedan is ridiculous!

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    How much money will I lose on Galant after two years and may be 40000 km?

    Or how much money will I lose on CL7 after two years and may be 60000km (assuming that the one i get is 20k km done)?

    yeah, galant 2.5L is 16lac, sports package is 17lac (has different rims and a spoiler and a few other external changes).

    The lowest price for a mark-x i got from @marks here on PW was 20.5-21 lac.

    Does anyone have any experience with a galant?

    Galant is no more available in the showrooms. They said now they'll have the new stock next year with new model.

    So now back to CL7...
