    options for local one are as follows...
    1) Overall performance
    2)Performance on CNG
    3)power DEFINITELY
    4)Availability of spare
    5)Long term use....
    DONT EVER THINK OF FITTING CNG IN JAPANESE ONE.... U WILL SLEEP WHILE DRIVING AS IT WILL TAKE 30 mins from 0 - 100 if on cng and A.c ...
    And yes this is true as it is underpowered and built for some warm environment just not like pakistan so it will give u heating problem but i have not heard it from any of the owner ....
    Thncx...

    well i m just saying tht mini pajero is better than the jap alto in terms of performance but i hav no intentions 2 buy a mini pajero since i think it is also under powered. i hav narrowed down my options 2 Local Alto VX CNG, Jap Alto and Cuore. but its getting difficult 4 me 2 decide which 1 2 opt for. my priority is performance and power alongwith performance on cng

    japani alto is way better than pakistani alto in power and performance and everything pakistani alto will die in cng and a/c but 660cc japani alto will give you more power and speed than 1000cc pakistani crap for sure i know its hard to beleive but go drive and check yourself in the showrooms and dealers

    One reason why we hesitate buying jap products is the non-availabilty of spare parts. Fortunately for ur choice, this is not a problem since the parts for local Alto will be compatible with the imported one. The Jap Alto will b definitely much more reliable and offer u more safety. However, at the price of Engine power etc,,, The difference in Engine is the only issue, so ull have to decide between reliablity/Safety and Engine economy etc urself.

    performance isnt a big issue as u wont be using it for racing purpose
    2-LOGAS vil help u better on dat
    3-comfort much better thn desi and reliability dependz on how u drive it im of the view the more u take care of ur car the more reliable is it
    4-hehehe desi alto duznt have ne safety features i dunt even think they even go throguh any crash tests khair japanese alto iz having AIR BAGS
    pars vill be available wont be much of a prob
    JAPANESE cars are known for their reliability more over as i said itz how u take care of it.
