    Default WHICH CAR SHALL I BUY? CITY OR LIANA CNG

    I need a brand new car , got a budget of 9 lakhs , need economy, is city i.dsi 1.3 ecoomically viable than a cng car? I was thinking of buying liana as it has factory fitted cng, and i have heard that factory fitted cng performs much better than after market ones, Any suggestions? and does the new 1.3 city look visually different than the steermatic one? is the dashboard the same?

    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    hi,,,omar,,,,i have a city 2003,,,,,does too good on petrol,,,,,gives me 16-17 km/litre ,,,,,,i think its very good for a 1.3 car,,,,,,,,,and u r right keh consumption of a factory fitted cng car is muc better,,,,,,,but u cannot compromise on shape and quality control,,,,,,,,

    man liana is one piece of ****(not the 1.6 model) ,,,,,stupid look,,,,,unfinished interiors ,,,,low initial pick,,,,,,,might be economical,,,,,,but u can put cng in the city,,,,,one of my uncle has put cng into 2005 city and it gives him 180km in 270 rs with AC which i think is great,,,,,,

    also the new city has a very good shape ,,,,,,,and interiors of 1.5 and 1.3 are the same ,,,,and also exterior is same,,,,,,only the meter panel lights are different in 1.5,,,,,which doesnt matter a lot

    finally ,,it looks great in Stone Silver colour,,,,,,,,

    i think now ur confusion dies out

    today i had a close look at liana. high rise seats setup for a family seat,, rear ashtray in centre arm between rear seat, 4 speakers with JVC grill 5" in rear, cd/cassette radio option. door panel black shade and beige interior, with white car paint. factory alloys i think there were 13" if i am not wrong, dails cluster similar to you see in honda in someways. finish of interior was pretty neat as these are Japan assemble cars. the car i saw is automatic. owner said mileage is not something extermely good, but is at average. car is quite smooth ride. a good option for mini luxury car at world class standard, ofcourse you have to get used to looks

    Hamdani thanks for your feedback, but i have another question for all, i am just checking the suzuki website and they have 2 more liana models, a 1.3 sport and a 1.6 axi on the specification list, what are the specification of these, does any one know? and Has suzuki got any plans to launch a 1.6 cng car , as i think a 1.6 or 1.8 company fitted cng car would be an ideal buy as it will compensate the power/pickup loss of the 1.3 engine.
