well.. to an extent ...baleno and a VTI 97 is not comparable..
Suzuki is well known for the cheap quality parts..... and there is no such thing for honda...
inspite of that .... honda is way2 comfirtable than baleno. The interior of the baleno is not that worthy than that of a honda civic VTI.
It all depends how much u can afford.
If one wants quality and performance..then go for the VTI. Else if u want economy then go for baleno.
in fact I was wandering in these two sides of economy yet style and worthiness added withcomfort.But some or the others the baleno is i think fuel efficient vehicle where as Vti is little heavy on fuel.But I think Vti is also fuel efficient in its class.
How is the market value of both !!
Personally, i wud have preferred baleno 1.6 gti instead of civic vti because baleno is more comfortable, fuel efficient and is more silent than civic vti. and those people who say that carb cars are pieces of junk, well now what is the junk huh?.. civic or baleno? baleno is EFI unlike Civic!
